“For our Summer 2012 collection, we worked with British illustrator Adrian Johnson. We met up with Adrian at his studio in Lewes.
Over the years, Liverpool born Adrian Johnson has developed a unique and strongly identifiable body of work. His trademark economical, highly crafted, graphic work is constantly evolving, whilst always maintaining a healthy distance from current trends and passing fashions. Adrian’s work has already led to a prolific working career and a client list which includes Paul Smith, Adidas, Monocle, The New York Times and Unicef. He also has exhibited work in London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Attention to detail, humor and a simple timeless sophistication mark him out as one of the leading illustrators currently practicing.”
I don’t hide the fact that I am a big big fan of both Adrian Johnson and Stüssy.

It hasn’t been long since I last posted the work of UK illustrator Adrian Johnson but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth noting some of his newest work which very recently popped up on his site and it’s for one of my favorite clothing brands no less.
Liverpool born illustrator Adrian Johnson has kept busy and has been updating his portfolio with more of his simple in execution yet sophisticated in wit illustrations.
Adrian Johnson updates his portfolio with more of his likable and exceptional illustration work. So simple and so good.
We have contracted Adrian Johnson before at Cactus to illustrate some t-shirt concepts for our Own Your C campaign and we were really pleased with his work. I don’t know why I have never posted his site before but it is full of quirky and sometimes hilarious illustrations. I love the Cactus image above and wish I would have thought of it for a Cactus shirt for our agency.
