Illustration: Behold the close-up comics of naughty but oh so nice illustrator Simon Landrein

Ooooh hello Simon Landrein and your new style. From a man who used to draw naked fantasy babes (we’ve all been there) comes this new aesthetic of comics that resemble all our childhood favourites put under a cartoon microscope. The close-up effect that his new graphic, digital comics have make you kind of want to push your chair away from your desk to have a better look, but there ain’t nothing wrong with that. His stories tell of mischief, sauciness and Wile E. Coyote-style practical jokes which smashed together under the umbrella of genuinely brilliant and laboured-over draughtsmanship, make a rather beguiling cocktail indeed.
