Jon Burgerman

From Pepsi cans to gallery walls, colouring books to laptop sleeves, clothing to club flyers, iPhone apps and more, Jon Burgerman's doodled characters pop up just where you'd expect to see them, and very often in places that you wouldn't. There's a reason for this: although Burgerman is an easy-going guy with a quirky sense of humour, he's always busy working on something, collaborating with other artists and spotting new opportunities. Behind it all is a naturally expressive drawing talent that has enabled him to develop a style that is recognised and adored by creatives around the world. So, how does this star of contemporary illustration get so much done?

Computer Arts: Burgerman projects come through thick and fast. How do you fit it all in?
Jon Burgerman:
Some of it feels like working, some of it doesn't. I think that's the trick: to do projects - whether commercial or your own project - which don't seem like work. I think that's my goal. I don't know where I find the time - this is what I do with my life. I don't have a massive other side of my life where I'm rock climbing or go-karting or hang-gliding or deep sea diving. The kind of activities I get up to are all interlinked in what I'm interested in.
