Nicholas Stevenson’s Illustrations Are Folk Inspired

Nicholas Stevenson Folk Art Illustrations

Nicholas Stevenson‘s illustrations have a folk art element to them, an outsider aesthetic that gives them a dreamy aspect, his work full of colour and broad strokes that hint at mystery, an inner world that is flat, in your face, playful and innocent, lively and occasionally unsettling. I particularly love his work on record sleeves and posters.

Stevenson is based in London and has worked for the likes of The New York Times, Warner/Chappell Music, Oxford American, Don’t Panic, Big Chill Festival, Anorak Magazine, The Skinny and Oh Comely.

If you have the time you should check out his sketchbooks. They’re full of fun.
