Illustration: Hilarious monochrome imagery from the excellent James Graham

Posted by James Cartwright,

James Graham has been a fully-fledged freelance illustrator for going on two years now. The RCA graduate has built up an extraordinary portfolio of sharp editorial illustration that can transform the most mundane of subjects (home insurance, tax returns, reliable computer hardware) into witty, brilliant imagery that grabs you by the retinas and holds you there. Since we last checked in with him it seems he’s been reducing his practice into even simpler forms, boiling his image-making down into a simple graphic language of monochrome perfection.
