You Win or You Die | Alexander Jackson
This is an open edition Giclee graphic art print. Printed on Decor Smooth 210gsm acid-free, museum quality paper, featuring a natural white finish and slightly textured surface.
THE PROJECT | All Good Things
We were looking through Behance for an illustrator that was tackling the HBO TV Series Game of Thrones in an interesting way. Alexander was the only one that we followed.
The POP channel's brief is to promote the work of creatives that respond to popular culture. It turns out that this is very much Alexander's own objective with his astute choices of subject matter caricatured from the myriad of faces popping up across our screens.
We collaborate with Alexander on All Good Things- a celebration of the bittersweet memories of eight years of fire and ice. Pick from a selection of the cast as you remember them or get them all together in the You Win or you Die print.
We are also working together on more ranges and these will all be collected into Perculiar Personas, coming soon!
DISCOVER | Alexander's Biography
Originally trained in fine art and traditional painting techniques, Alexander Jackson went on to study Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, where he developed a more graphical style. Influenced by pop-culture, film, music, animation and a very broad range of visual art, his work often deals with responding to mainstream media, while at the same time showing a keen interest in character.
He has produced editorial illustration as well as work for comics, children’s books, illustrations for short stories, book covers, portraits and murals. His children’s book, Jenny’s Bath, was acknowledged by 3×3.
Apart from illustration Alexander is a keen musician and spends his time being involved in various musical projects. He has dabbled in film making, soundtrack work, photography and writing. He still enjoys painting.
