Owen Davey’s illustrated characters appeal to kids and adults alike

Coming across Owen Davey’s portfolio again was like running into an old friend on the street that you’ve absent-mindedly lost touch with – simultaneously really enjoyable and mildly guilt-ridden. You see we featured some of Owen’s work on the site way back when royal wedding hysteria was in full swing. He’d been working at Orange, had illustrated some charming plates and we vowed to ourselves that we’d give his work more of the space it deserved. But then we just lost touch (figuratively speaking).

Needless to say Owen’s illustrations are pretty darn excellent. He’s mastered a folk-influenced style of image-making that manages to appeal equally to adults and children without being saccharine – his approachable characters look spot on whether they’re adorning the pages of a wordless picture book or the opinion pages of The New York Times. So get yourself acquainted with Owen’s work as we’re pretty confident you’ll enjoy it as much as we do, albeit without those latent feelings of guilt.
