Illustration of the Day: J is for James

Stanley Chow’s wonderful J is for James illustration has just been released as a limited edition print! “I felt compelled to do the James Bonds, because it’s the festive season, and the festive television schedule in UK every year is James Bond film after James Bond film,” he tells us. “Plus, I need to add to my self-initiated project ‘My Random Alphabet’ that I am producing too.

You can buy the print over at Stanley’s Print Shop or you can check out all of his amazing work at his website. Related: Cool and Funny Caricatures by Stanley Chow
