Hi! I’m Jeff York.

Thanks for checking out The Establishing Shot where I post my movie reviews and essays about Hollywood and the industry. Additionally, I draw caricatures to accompany the reviews of films I found particularly inspiring. I don’t draw one for every movie I see, but I try to review most of what comes out.

Check out my non-illustrated reviews below!

More Jeff York Illustrated Reviews

My illustrations have appeared in the pages of all kinds of periodicals including Playboy, W magazine, Hemispheres, Automobile, Ladies Home Journal, Esquire and more. I even drew weekly for the Chicago Tribune for over five years. And my caricatures have been a part of The Establishing Shot from its beginnings in 2011.
