Alexander Wells is a UK-based freelance illustrator. His extensive client list includes Glenfiddich Whiskey, Wired Magazine, The Guardian, Mojo Magazine and The Financial Times. I’m still unsure of how he manages to so seamlessly combine vectorized imaging with a hand-drawn quality.

Implications - Consumers have an affinity for the fine arts because they provide viewers with escapist experiences. Consumers use these escapist experiences as a coping mechanism for stresses induced by modern living. Corporations may find it advantageous to provide consumers with stress relief products and services as a source of revenue.
