John Mavroudis is one of the most influential contemporary illustrators. He was born in California (from a Greek father and an American mother) and gained international reputation for the cover of TIME magazine, featuring Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, created by her powerful quotes. Using the same method, he previously created the portrait of US President Donald Trump for The Nation.
My Instagram feed these past days and weeks has once again seen a creativity explosion concerning the US election. From the very start, my favourite illustrators, letterers and designers, have been super supportive of the Biden campaign, creating posters for awareness and encouraging people to vote.
I have gathered here a small selection of work from all stages of the election: voting awareness and early voting, election day, anticipation for the results and finally, enormous joy and relief for the final verdict! A new era begins for America. Enjoy!

It was first published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838, in Edinburgh and London. The work consists of 435 beautiful, hand-coloured, life-size prints, made from engraved plates, measuring around 99 by 66 cm.
All these 435 illustrations from J. J. Audubon’s ‘Birds of America’ are available now for free download. My favorite is the one with the huge pink flamingo.
