Chances are you may have seen some of John Holcroft’s work before, as many of his thought-provoking illustrations have gone viral in the past. “My self-promotional work gives me a chance to experiment with my style and poke fun at various aspects of modern life and politics,” John has written on his Tumblr. Check out some of his work below and let us know – which of these wonderfully clever and sarcastic pictures do you find the most appealing or accurate?
