Illustration Inspiration

October 24th, 2011

I adore children’s books. I still read through my old ones and I dream of working on one, one day. Putting a graphic, minimalist spin on some old favourites, Christian Jackson designed an eye-catching series of posters that capture the bare essentials and simultaneously remind us how most children’s tales are threaded through with foreboding undertones. Love the subtle grunge and clean typography. Now I want to redecorate a children’s library.

Christian Jackson - Little Red Riding Hood

Christian Jackson - The Princess and the Pea

You can see the entire series here, and you can purchase his prints here.
