Satiric Illustrations Of Today’s Problems Drawn In The Vintage Style
John Holcrofts style is based on the 50’s advertisements and “bad print” characteristic texture that completes the effect. Nonetheless, the content of these illustrations is anything but old-fashioned – social issues and people’s behavior are drawn in a satiric way. Our dependence on technology, society’s greed or devaluation of workers are some of the issues Holcroft likes to show.
