John Fellows — Crested Butte, Colorado, USA

What is the most memorable piece of illustration you have come across? “One of the most memorable pieces of illustration I have come across is a poster by James Victore titled Racism from 1993. I first saw this piece when I was a graphic-design student at Drexel University. The simplicity of the design but the power that it conveys shows that one does not need an overly designed or illustrated image to say a lot. This poster and his work in general really influenced me as a student. I know it doesn’t look like it, but I try to keep my work ‘simple’ and accessible to a wide audience.”

John Fellows is an illustrator/designer/artist based in the mountains of Colorado. His signature “contemporary folk” style weaves together hand-carved block prints, found paper and maps to create an old, hands-on look and feel. Travel and the outdoors are major influences on his work and these themes can be seen in projects for clients across the outdoor industry such as Patagonia, Smartwool and Element Skateboards.
