San Francisco-based Tim Lahan’s naughty, witty artwork is the product of his ability to digest and illustrate clever glitches, concepts and interesting visual cues in the world around him. “I generally aim to make things as simple as possible,” says Tim. “Sometimes they come out funny.” Generally commissioned to bring a touch of joy to magazines, adverts and music collateral, ADC Young Gun award winner Tim’s instantly recognisable style is enviably simple, looks fantastic applied to just about anything, and is genuinely funny: something very few illustrators can boast.
