Artist of the week: James Brown

The next printmaker in the rather infrequent series that is Artist of the Week is James Brown. We've just received some great new prints from him and some new totes. We've been selling James' work for a few years now and he's always been very popular!

London based James Brown is an illustrator and printmaker. He trained as a textile and surface print designer and worked in the clothing industry for 10 years producing print designs for numerous brands from Levis to Louis Vuitton.

After two years at Hope & Glory menswear James embarked on a new career as an illustrator in 2007. James has been commissioned to produce work by publishing houses, magazines and newspapers and advertising and design agencies. Recent clients include Oxfam, Cancer Research, The Guardian and Faber & Faber.

Alongside his commercial practice James produces limited edition screen prints and linocuts. James' prints reflect his interest in the printed and typographic ephemera of pop culture. The traditional processes that go into the production of James’ prints are very important.
