Stephen Harnwell Jones – Menu : Risographs

Menu_SHJ_LCS

I’ve produced 3 Risographs prints for a range entitled ‘Menu’… based on the vintage menu board I have up in my kitchen at home, they feature hand drawn typography and tongue in cheek humour. The Sausage one in particular is based on a real life experience I had in Scotland not so long ago. Limited to 10 of each, these A3 prints (actual print size area is A4) are individually numbered.

Since the age of 5, I’ve always been seen with a pencil in my hand, frantically scribbling down what is in my head.

My inspiration comes in many forms, from 1950’s poster art to the quirky Japanese characters used to promote the simplest of products. I try to keep my ideas timeless, grounded in the iconic symbols of a timeless era. In the world of illustration, I guess anything goes, because thats the point of it – to communicate an idea in an easily remembered original way.

I generally uses 2B, 4B, 6B and 9B graphite pencils and textured paper, adding digital colour to my work, making it the perfect medium for print, advertising and online usage.
