Jay Fleck: Illustrating the Childhood Imagination

If there is one word to sum up the illustrations of Jay Fleck, it would have to be “FUN”. His colorful works seem to draw from the inspiring world of childhood, creating fantasies filled with octopus, pirates, rocket ships and elephants… all translated into a graphical world even we adults can relate to. It must be his obvious love for his own kids and the inspiration they bring into his life.


Keeping with the fun vibe which permeates all of Fleck’s work, each of his illustrations contains some clever graphical element which keeps you exploring their many details. Sometimes these are as simple as a tasteful use of negative space, other times they are as deep as a playful tribute to the Beatles.

Many of his works are available on Society6 as prints, stretched canvas’, t-shirts and even iPhone skins, so you’re sure to be able to take his inspiration with you. For more examples of his imaginative work, check out his Flickr page.
