Illustration is one of those wonderfully versatile forms of mark-making which comes in every different guise imaginable – from dynamic, fast-paced and full of action, to slow, deliberate and painstakingly detailed – so it’s more or less a given that the very best illustrators out there will have mastered as many different styles as possible. This is where Josh Cochran comes in.
He belongs to that rare school of visual storytellers who tend to find success as editorial illustrators, whose handle on their medium is so complete that they are able to convey complex, multi-layered messages through a single image. Whether that be for an article in a financial magazine about how companies roll content from one place to another, or an enormous mural spanning whole walls created in response to a collection of life goals and dreams, no idea is too abstract for Josh’s talents. if you don’t believe me, here’s an update on what he’s been setting his masterful mind to of late.
