Jonathan Burton

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Flicking through the portfolio of Jonathan Burton has the same visceral pleasure as biting into a perfectly ripe peach. Throughout his decade-long evolution as an illustrator he’s aged his craft until achieving perfect maturity – works which blend realism and imagination with studied care. A series of covers for Kingsley Amis is a particular standout – purple moonlight, pallid complexion and carousel-colourful dresses populate this world of ladies and gentlemen, children and cigarettes. Seriously nice stuff.
