Jody Barton is a british but Copenhagen based illustrator and hand-drawn typographer. Most of his work is minimalistic and sketchy with some sort of sarcastic or comical phrase or slogan handwritten somewhere on it. His cynical take on important environmental issues helped him get some recognition in the art world. He studied art in London at Camberwell College of Arts and the Royal College of Art. Barton has extensive experience working in animation and sound. He has a way of combining word and image that is unique and compelling. short simple phrases can go a long way – especially when tackling topics that have been drilled so far into our heads that we almost don’t hear them anymore.
