You wouldn’t think illustrator Josh McKenna was based out of East London, instead his colourful and vibrant pool-side characters look like they’re straight out of a Miami summer scene. Inspired by tropical details and abstract patterns, Josh has completed work for Converse, MTV, GQ, Wired and the Wall Street Journal, proving everyone wants a bit of sunshine in their lives.
