The first glimpse I had of UK illustrator Migy’s work was at this year’s Glastonbury festival, with his lanky characters featured on charity posters and guides all over the place. Not a bad place for a bit of exposure. I really like his shapes and colours, but particularly the expression created through his fun illustration style.

Joseph Lambert is one hard-working cartoonist and illustrator with a great, well developed style. I’m particularly keen on his self-made comics and the techniques and tools he uses to create his addictive work. I asked him a few questions to find out about all this in greater detail.

With his close attention to light and textures, his work has real depth to it, making the work feel very tangible. Some of the content of his illustrations remind me of the surreal work of Salvador Dalí, although there are many other influences there.
