The simple, impactful style of 1960s comic art is Philadelphia artist Joseph McDermott’s specialty, and using his experience and imagination he always finds ways of making the aesthetic relevant to his client’s brief. Little touches like the ink dot patterns and distressed paper textures add to the authenticity of his creations.
Joe’s vintage comic book style will certainly remind you of Roy Lichtenstein’s approach to Pop Art, right down to the replication of ink dot screens that reflect 20th century printing techniques. In fact, many of the brushes and halftone patterns Joe uses in his work are of his own design.
Joseph’s clients include Heineken, Toyota, Google, Be Magazine, Perrier, American Express, Papyrus and Mr Porter.
