Illustrated spam emails

Everyone gets spam emails, and some of them are infinitely more amusing than others. I love that the ‘old-fashioned’ style of spam still exists, despite hacks being more likely to happen from phishing and less overtly bizarre forms. Scammers somewhere in the world are compiling emails about how they are holding huge sums of money and you – yes, you – are the sole beneficiary, and all you need to do to claim this life-changing amount of money is send them every personal detail and document about yourself. I imagined how these emails would look as handwritten letters and set about illustrating them. The illuminati one is still my favourite. ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THE WORLD OF FAME?? GETTING RICH. This is an ongoing project done for the hell of it – I finish one illustration and another ludicrous email pops up in my junk folder, so it will probably never end.
