Brian Sanders has had many of illustration's dream jobs. He illustrated women’s magazines during the heyday of the 1960s. He was commissioned by Stanley Kubrick to sit on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey and draw scenes of the film’s production. In the 70s, he painted artwork for a series of 26 John Steinbeck books – and co-founded the Association of Illustrators – while the 80s saw him embark on illustrating over 50 UK postage stamps.

More recently, when the creators of Mad Men wanted an artwork in the style of airline TWAs flight menus from the 1960s for Season Six’s promo artwork, they commissioned Brian (seen here with the artwork).

Work from throughout Brian’s careers will be on show at the Lever Gallery in London, from May 12 to July 31.
