Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. This week, feast your eyes on the crazy characters of Tony Johnson.
Power tool: Mechanical Pencil + Photoshop
Power song: Theme from Hollywood – Megapuss
Power snack: Cheese + a glass of bourbon
Tony Johnson is a super-talented London-based illustrator and animator (OMG YES, THERE ARE GIFS!) whose humourous, cleverly-observed characters are colourful, graphic wonders that make you reminisce about hot summer days in childhood when there were no shits to be given about anything ever.
Not content with absolutely killing it with his illustrations, Tony is also a brilliant animator, having created full music videos as well as animated versions of his still work.
Tony is available for freelance commissions, so go contact him/check out his stuff on Twitter, Tumblr, Dribbble or Facebook. You can also buy a nice selection of his work on prints, stickers, badges and cards over on his online store.
Want us to show off your mad skills? We’re always looking for young creatives, students and graduates to showcase for our Monday feature, so send us an email with some samples or a portfolio link with the subject line “Mad Skills Monday” to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll check you out!
