A Few of my Favourite Things' for Nobrow by Jack Hudson

Tublord Poster by Jack Hudson

Editorial for O Magazine by Jack Hudson

I’m surprised that I haven’t written about Jack Hudson‘s work before. The Birmingham-born illustrator creates wonderful illustrations from his studio in Bristol and he fills them with the most amazing shades and colors. A lot of his work is driven by narrative and he has a great ability to create exciting, imaginary worlds filled with a variety of strange occurrences and fantastic looking people. The other day he created a wonderful poster for a duo of indie gig promoters called Dirty Otter and the finished piece is fantastic; you can check it out above. I really love the simplicity of his designs and his restrained use of color.

The image at the top of this post comes from an issue of Nobrow‘s biannual journal and the picture came about when Nobrow asked 30 artists and illustrators to create an image based on the theme “A Few of My Favourite Things”. It’s a great idea for a publication and Jack’s contribution is fantastic. I’ve spent a good long time getting lost in the world of his favorite things and discovering his love of bike-rides, rucksacks and inkwells! More work can be found here.

    You have written about his work…? Jack took part in a Desktop Wallpaper project with Just Us a couple of years back

    @Mark Hey Mark, it definitely seems like Jack did make a desktop wallpaper for the blog a few years ago but for the life of me I cant seem to find it on here. I gave a pretty thorough search this morning but just couldn’t find it. Maybe Bobby might know more about it as it was posted before I was a writer on here.

    Everyone else: For those who are interested you can find Jack’s wonderful wallpaper on the Just Us blog here.

    @Mark – I actually never received that wallpaper, I hadn’t even seen that until Philip found the link he posted!

    Hey guys, Thanks for the post! Don’t worry about the wallpaper. It’s a really old piece and I think my works come on a fair bit since then, so keep it hidden from the masses please haha!
