Serious Drawings

Whether on paper, post-its, or mouse traps these wonderful works by Marc Johns had me smiling all day. I love their simplistic humour and the wonderful watercolor textures. I’m definitely going to be ordering some prints and possibly a signed copy of his book, if I’m lucky! Don’t you just love the dapper, Thom Browne-esque looking gentlemen in these illustrations?

Marc Johns

From Marc’s website:

Marc Johns creates whimsical drawings filled with dry wit and humour. Whether it’s a man with branches growing out of his head that need pruning, or a pipe that’s trying to quit smoking, his characters are simply, sparsely drawn, yet speak volumes with just a few strokes of the pen. He’s been drawing since he was tiny. He’s not tiny anymore, but he’s not exactly big either. Marc is not sure why he’s talking about himself in the third person…
