    Jack Hughes: The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails

Jack Hughes' scotch sipping, cigarette smoking illustrated dandies are an absolute joy

Posted by James Cartwright,

There are a number of things we can surmise about Jack Hughes from his portfolio without ever actually having met him. Number one, he’s a stylish fellow of unparalleled sartorial taste. Number two, his personal hygiene is of the utmost importance. Number three, he’s read at least a handful (probably a shelf-full) of spy novels, most likely John le Carré. Number four, he’s watched every episode of Mad Men at least twice – but only so he can scope out the groovy furniture and period sets. And finally he enjoys fine scotch and hand-rolled cigars in the same way that the rest of us enjoy water and air.

Given that Jack only graduated from Kingston University last year we’re sure almost none of this is actually true – he’s probably still eating beans from a tin and washing his pants in the sink – but his polished 60s-inspired illustration is so suave and elegant we can’t really imagine it being produced by anyone other than the character described above. But with a growing list of professional clients knocking on his door we’re sure he’ll transform from grubby student to the stylish gent we’d like him to be in no time at all. Good luck to you sir!
