Robert Samuel Hanson
You may have seen the work of Robert Samuel Hanson here and there, Monocle and elsewhere. I’ve seen some of his wonderful illustrations before, but a few of the works above are still getting a good laugh out of me. The “I love you and I know where you live” piece especially cracks me up. I would totally send that around as a Valentines Day card if I thought the recipients had enough of a sense of humor to not get me arrested.
Not only is Robert’s work beautifully rendered and realized, but it’s just the right amount of clever without being too cute. Aren’t we lucky he works for so many terrific publications! It’s always a nice surprise to stumble on one of his delightful illustrations. His logo is amazing too, check it out on his front page.
