Rich people in Hong Kong and China are ditching their Burberry checks and chunky designer watches
Sartorially, they are becoming more refined and less ostentatious
This was for the nice people at Haymarket Asia

David Humphries


Did your mum used to tell you that we lose up to 50 per cent of heat through our heads? 
It was just to frighten you into wearing that bobble hat that she knitted you for Christmas
Here is a picture I did for Readers Digest to expose this wicked lie

Spear's Magazine. Trusted Advisers

The nice people at Spear's Magazine commissioned this Illo' for a piece on "how private client professionals – including lawyers, accountants and private bankers –are increasingly serving as ‘trusted advisers’ for their clients, giving advice that it’s not strictly limited to their area of expertise and ending up becoming a friend". 


Vanity Fair, November Issue

I must be popular with Vanity or the blackmail is working, but they commissioned me again for Novembers On Travel Section. They were reviewing three hotels located in Vienna, Istanbul and Milan in a piece called "The Tale or Three Cities" and wanted to give it a twist with some Illustrations instead of the more usual photos.



Vanity Fair, On Time

They lovely people at Vanity Fair commissioned me do come up with some pics to stretch over the top of 5 pages in Vanity's "On Time". The piece was on the Dangers, trials and adventures undertaken by some of the greats of watchmaking. Really nice job to do.


Corporate Treasurer Illustration.

This pic' was for Haymarket HK. Piece was about Qantas migrating to "Cloud" networking, they wanted the illustration to feature Qantas aircraft.
