As much as I love doing cute, happy work, sometimes I want to challenge myself to something with a different feel. Here is an old school shipwreckin' siren.
What a beautiful murder fish.
A little autumnal witch for you guys this spooky season! I like to imagine she couriers parcels and scrolls, a la Kiki’s Delivery Service, but she particularly specialises in tracking down rare ingredients and items for the magical community. And pastries. Always pastries.
I did try this with a background but then I wasn't focussing so much on her, so I left it pretty simple!
I love this colour palette. I tend to go for quite cool, bright or high contrast colours in images, so it was lovely to experiment with something a little more earthy and muted. Will definitely be using it again!
A recent piece working with Ross Ringham on marketing ideas. This one was for Beryl bikes.
Ross wanted to have two middle aged ladies, both called Beryl, on various travel-based misadventures, so we went for a narrowboat traffic jam as an example piece.
Recently I took part in the Toponymy project with Nottingham City of Literature, and the lovely poet Polis Loizou.
The idea was to create an image and a piece of writing that worked together to explain the meaning of one of UNESCO's Global Creative Cities.
I had a great time, but it was certainly a challenge created a piece that was nearly 4 foot square! Just getting it through my scanner was something of an achievement!
I learned a lot about Nottingham's fascinating history; what a lot of badasses!
There is a physical exhibition in Quebec, but also an online version if you want to have a look at the other amazing participants.
I've done quite a bit of work with the e-scooter company Super Pedestrian over the last few years and I wanted to take a bit of a closer look into my process and how things go from sketch to final product.
Sometimes it's very simple. This piece for example went from sketch, to ink, to final with very little alteration...
Often even if the sketch isn't exactly right, most or all of the components of the final will be present.
