A Super Collab Worth Watching

Recently, Jonathan Bartlett debuted his Camofleur collection, and we simply fell in love with this elegant new series of prints and images. The suite of imagery seemed so perfectly suited for various products, so it made our hearts skip a beat when we first saw his collaboration with MODIFYWATCHES. Simultaneously elegant and hip, we find it nearly impossible to pick a favorite combination – what do you think?

Introducing our Newest Artist – Jonathan Bartlett!

This one has been a long time coming!

We have been admiring Jonathan Bartlett’s ever-evolving work for quite awhile now, and it has been truly enjoyable to follow his ascent as an illustrator. He has continuously impressed us with his juxtaposition of classical imagery and fresh symbols, and we’ve always appreciated his subtle surrealism that is grounded in nature. And don’t even get us started on that impeccable technique!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please take a moment to check out Jonathan’s wonderful portfolio and welcome this talented lad to the team.
