Thoughtful Illustrations and Development Work by James O’Brien

James O’Brien uses carefully thought-out compositions with a colourful arrangement of textures in his editorial illustrations.

On his own site, he also often posts interesting insights into his process, like sketches, rough drafts and thumbnails, which are well worth checking out.
