The Satirical Illustrations of John Holcroft

Illustrator John Holcroft grew up in Lancashire. When he was nine his family moved to Yorkshire where he spent most of his childhood drawing and painting. During his college years, he became a fan of artists like David Cutter, Ian Pollock, and Edward Hopper. In 1996 he took the plunge and started freelance. For the first 5 years, he painted all his work on canvass paper, and as you can imagine, this was rather time-consuming. It was in 2001 that he started to familiarize himself with technology and executed his artwork using a Wacom tablet and Corel Painter. Since then he has reinvented his style about 5 or 6 times. It was in 2009 that he has finally decided to create a sustainable style with a little more longevity.
