French’s latest works are referential of a specifically 1970’s ‘medieval space age’ impression upon illustration. Creating incarnations in an ode to the objects one might want to decorate their bedroom or jacket with when they were fifteen. Dragons, castles, knights, skeletons, impending Nuclear doom, swords, axes, chains, motorcycles ridden by reapers all face off in French’s illustrated universe resulting in a body of work demonstrating his unique understanding of the illustrated form. Bright neons and day glow paint punctuate and shape French’s distinctive illustration style. Conjuring imagery of a ghoulish fantasy realm, not too dissimilar from a roll the dice styled board game or fantasy metal record covers mixed with some type of charity shop knightmare.
