Josh McKenna’s illustrations are those you will undoubtedly recognise. Commissioned by both Google and Instagram this year, Josh’s celebratory illustrations of “what it’s like to be gay” for Pride have been one of the most shareable hits of 2017. Largely down to his illustration skill and due to his ability to represent “fun and sassy” characteristics, “but cover sensitive topics as well”.
Talking through his sticker set for Google, followed by a sticker for Instagram on the same subject in June, at Nicer Tuesdays Josh gave insight to the back and forth with clients, (speedos are “too risqué to approve by the way”) and how the finished results have been shared all over the world. Due to such demand, his Instagram sticker is now a permanent fixture on the app.
