John is a freelance illustrator and designer based in Cornwall. His practice is based on high-tempo, never-say-no creativity with an emphasis on humour and the absurd.

Current Clients include Atlantic Press Books, Falmouth University and Slut clothing.

John also sells handmade books, zines and screen prints.

We discovered John at the Comica fair in 2012 where we fell in love with his handmade pop-up book The Golden Plaice – a mouth-wateringly gorgeous book made using a mixture of screen printed imagery, pencil drawings and typography.

Inspired by nonsense literature and Cornwall’s wonderfully diverse sea life, each book takes about a week to make and is totally unique.  Wanna see the book? Check it out here.
