He describes his style as 'playful observations and detailed line-work', using the traditional medium of graphite and coloured pencil. We describe it as a masterclass in a traditional illustration technique. David Sparshott is a London-based illustrator that has worked with some big brands, from The New York Times to Gail's and designer-and-cyclist-favourite, Rapha.
It's great to see such beautiful, handcrafted work being used at the forefront of design and branding today. The expression and texture is simply something that can't be created with such authenticity in the digital world - getting your hands dirty is the way forward. I think we'll be picking up a print or two from his shop.
