Loose shapes and jaunty characters in Alec Doherty’s editorial illustrations

London-based illustrator Alec Doherty’s loosely formed characters have appeared in The Guardian, The New York Times and on Mr Porter. From climate change to bromances, Alec’s illustrations convey a warm and engaging tone through their use of colour.

With crinkly faces and tapered limbs, his style is in contrast with the work he created for Partizan Brewing, which we featured on the site a couple of years ago. A freer, less confined approach gives Alec’s characters a sense of movement and increases their ability to tell a story.
