A Brief Look: The Illustrations of Sean Mort

 

 

UK based illustrator and printmaker Sean Mort takes delight in crisp lines. Mort’s designs are lean with a razor focus on concept and clarity. There’s an air of lightness to his prints — you feel the negative space. His ‘Texas’ illustration, a pair of headphones unfurled into the shape of the Lonestar state. His compositions give the paper itself a place of priority.

A frequent vendor at conventions, Mort is a traveling tinker — his booth full of prints that connect with a broad audience outside of the gig poster collectors. Mort works in humor, nostalgia. When a potential customer pays a visit to his line of prints, he will have something that speaks to them — a cityscape they once knew, an image from their youth. A toy. A slice of a memory.
