Jonathan Burton is a multiple award winning illustrator with a portfolio and client list of the highest order. Originally from the North of England, he now lives and works in Bordeaux, France.
Refined and classic, there’s an old-time darkness to some of his work. An aesthetic and conceptual edge that nods to the great American illustrators of the 20th century, mixed with melancholic and humorous characters from the Victorian era, but with a contemporary or unexpected twist.
This unique combination has led to numerous collaborations with legendary publishers the Folio Society, French fashion giants Hermés Paris, and established British clients such as BAFTA, the Royal Mail and Fortnum & Mason. He's also had a prolific career as an alternative film poster artist, creating countless limited edition prints for Mondo.
