Pies, factories, ale, top hats and football matches all speak of an era in Great Britain that we are used to seeing glimpses of in the art of L.S.Lowry. This cold, smokey era is completely reborn in John Broadley’s old fashioned illustrations full of strange twists and turns. His funny-looking characters that range from Dickensian men to Bash Street Kids go about their daily business in reams of pretty hilarious comic strips.
It’s no surprise then that this rather unique pastiche technique has drawn the attention of many clients who want to use his artisan style to better their companies, most fittingly the quintessentially British Fine Cheese Company in Bath. Read a nice interview with John on Book by it’s Cover.
