James Graham: M is for Men

We're very proud of our contributors here at Esquire, from our esteemed selection of writers, interviewers and sleuth investigators to our crack team of photographers and illustrators, every part of our publication is put together with the utmost care and attention.

Accordingly, when we heard that one of our key illustrators - who's been making his distinctive mark on the mag for the past year and a half - was having an exhibition of all his work for Esquire right here in London town, we were pleased as punch.

The show, opening this Thursday at East London's House of Propellers gallery, will feature all the pared-down pictograms Graham has created for Esquire's Manual for a Stylish Life, our guide to being the perfect modern gentleman. From illustrations accompanying instructions on how to write up a will and starting your own bank, Graham's pictorial approach knows no bounds.

Inspired by past Esquire art-direction greats including Jean Paul Goude and Paul Rand, Graham's second exhibition at House of Propellers captures the no-frills Esquire aesthetic of which we're so proud. To see more of Graham's work, flick to this month's Manual for a Stylish life where he helps explain the science behind gender stereotypes and whether or not you're a "gym tool". But better yet, if you're in town go and show Graham some support, we'll see you there.

"James Graham: M is for Men" will remain on show at House of Propellers, 5 Back Hill, London EC1R 5EN until 2 September 2010.
