This is Rob Hodgson’s self portrait. He’s a british graphic designer & illustrator based in Bristol, UK.
I love the style and sense of humor of all his drawings which I think is the sort of illustration we would love to see on children’s books more often.
Take a look at his Etsy shop where you can find his prints.
According to him, some inspirations are: big and small things, folk objects, Mid Century illustration, On Natural Selection, Halloween, cavemen, JD Salinger, truth, mark making, trains, book shops, existential fiction, junk shops, Europe, field recordings, idiot savants, windows and doors, plastic toys, bones and pine cones, the Beatles, space documentaries, feral children, art, retail parks, parks, coffee in the morning, tea at bed time, dinosaurs…and so on!
