UK-based artist John Holcroft has been illustrating and working in several mediums and styles since 1996. He has been mostly working for magazines and book publishers, but recently he started turning his focus towards social media, where he shares his thought-provoking illustrations.
Creating for social media gives Holcroft a creative freedom and allows him to get into an array of topics including technology, environment, politics, and much more. While his works at first seem like a simple satirical art, each illustration sends a powerful message that makes you think about the current state of human society.
“Whether I’m right or wrong, my work is sending a message,” says Holcroft.
He adds: “Although I don’t think we can change the world, I believe that over time we can change views and mindsets.”
