Frankfurt-based illustrator and long-time It’s Nice That favourite Jan Buchczik has been keeping busy since illustrating speaker portraits for Here 2015. With his clean lines and sharp, playful work it comes as little surprise he has continued to land commissions straight from the top.
Recently he has added Google and The New York Times to his roster with new subjects ranging from pork smuggling to egoism. All executed in Jan’s simple, confident style, these join truckloads work for the likes of Bloomberg Businessweek, The Sunday Times and Zeit Campus and are exactly what qualifies him to give out excellent advice for illustrators looking for commissions.
