Simon John Thompson: Welcome to serigraphie

Work / Illustration

Simon John Thompson might just be the craziest illustrator alive

You know what your favourite illustrator is probably missing, 100 abstract naked chicks hanging out on a beach. No? What about a paper bag-masked arsonist watching a hawk remove a pig’s entrails? Burning witch electrocuting an armless woman? We give up, maybe you’ve seen it all before but to us Simon John Thompson’s illustrated world is 100 per cent batsh*t crazy. And we freaking love it!

You see on the one hand Simon has an effortless knack for creating intensely surreal imagery that’s fuelled by pop-culture, news reports, the French avant-garde and vintage cartoons, and on the other he’s a terrifically skilled printer, producing immaculate screen and risograph works on paper in which the colours have been overlaid to perfection. This balance of imagination and skill make him a force to be reckoned with – and he’s not even graduated university yet. Look out world, Simon John Thompson’s about to unleash a fury of visceral illustration upon you!
