Satirical illustrations provide an uncomfortable truth on today’s society

Sheffield-based illustrator John Holcroft uses his artistry to speak up about the state of the world we’re living in. Using vintage-style techniques, this popular artist takes on social media, big tobacco companies, utility services, and even pop culture icons to show us that we’ve grown accustomed to companies shoving things down our throats, like the need to be liked, the need to look a certain way, and the need to conform.

His illustrations also go to show how little we can sometimes value ourselves, others, and the planet we live on.
