Master of clean-line Americana is UK illustrator Jason Ford

Posted by James Cartwright,

Raised on a strict diet of Hergé and mid-century Americana comics, Jason Ford is a man of excellent illustrative tastes, producing characters and scenes imbued with the rich emotive expressions of the likes of John Kricfalusi and Hanna Barbera. Packed into each of his pieces are the honed skills of a master-draughtsman, skilled painter and sensitive colourist, not to mention a talented storyteller.

Since graduating from The Royal College of Art in 1989, Jason has carved out a niche for himself producing clean-lined illustrations for an extensive list of editorial clients and household children’s entertainment names like Nickelodeon and Hodder books (the ones that publish Asterix). It’s really not hard to see why this man is in such demand.
