Selected Drawings: James Jarvis

As any fan of James Jarvis’ vinyl toys and comic books will know, the artist is a stickler for detail and this obsession with getting things just right is certainly part of the charm of his work. Of the many drawings brought together in this, his first book of selected work from 2002–2007 (published by Amos) it’s fascinating to see how his eye fixates on the precise way that a cravat is tied, how a buckle on a policeman’s jacket fastens or, even, how a crow might sport a top hat. And, my, how it sports it well.
