Thomas Hedger, illustrator, artist and connoisseur of tricky-to-achieve simplicity, has updated his Behance and so given us a handy excuse to celebrate his work and enjoy what he’s been up to in the first quarter of 2016.

Thomas’ work is consistently intriguing. Using his go-to, tried-and-tested toolkit of distinct, bold lines and vibrant, block colour, he produces work of stunning scope – cheeky and serious, sad and funny, socially aware and irreverent. What really stands out is the consideration he clearly puts into whittling down complex ideas into only a few simple, bold components.

All of this gorgeous work is churned out from his appropriately hip Thames-moored house boat, where he stretches his time between posting a daily piece to his Instagram, assembling illustrations for big-name newspapers and more particular publications, as well as keeping up with minor side projects – you know, easy stuff like producing a book, creating for the maverick Outcrowd Collective and studying at Central St Martins (yes, he's still very much at te beginning of his career). Presumably, amongst all of this, he manages to sleep and eat too.

Here, we've collected our favourites of his year so far - starting off with the cheeky side I was talking about, literally so.
