Art For Art’s Sake #99: The Beauty Of The Urban Landscape

Art For Art’s Sake, a weekly spin through all the art that’s made me go ooooh this week. Because you need something beautiful in your lives right now. And this is way cheaper than that Aston Martin or those Christian Louboutins…

And finally…

Jonathan Edwards has been making gorgeous comic art since 1993, with his first gig with Deadline Magazine. But sadly for comics, he’s one of many talented artists who selfishly decides that things like eating and paying the rent matter more than making comics full-time. So his art is more likely to be seen in the pages of the Guardian or Mojo amongst many other illustration clients. His character design work includes collaborations with his partner, Louise (the incredibly talented Felt Mistress), and his very own vinyl toy, Inspector Cumulus (available from Crazylabel toys).

But here we’re going to feature some of his comics and illustration work, work that I absolutely love…

A little Tank Girl…

The Helper… a 24-hour comic…

PJ Harvey

Sherlock…

Lucky Luke…

 

And now, some of the pieces I love the most, the sketchbook works he produces, there’s a beautiful looseness to his line that is just so gorgeously organic, so full of life and colour, these are incredible urban landscapes full of stunning details and images I could spend hours gazing at.

 

 

And most of these images are available through Jonathan’s web store
