Having trained as an illustrator, Marcus James has since been working as an artist with a focus on intricate observational drawings. For a recent show at London’s Hus Gallery, Marcus exhibited a series of landscapes, drawn with the same system of layering colour pencils for an impression of texture and depth, representing the variety of light and shade that prevails on hill-scapes.

The catalogue and invitation for the Landscapes show were designed by Multistorey , who reflected the bright colours used in Marcus’ work and applied them as bold typography that aligns with his drawings without competing with their level of detail. As well as the full-scale drawings the catalogue has a selection of close-ups and black and white drawings.
