Like Buses

So its been a busy week for me, one of those weeks where I leave everything to the last minute and make things really stressful. I've been working on a 6 page illustration for Sketchbook Magazine. Its all about Amelia Gregory and her infamous magazine, pictured above is the first draft, still needs a bit of work but its nearly there. Pictured below that is the cover and double page spread I illustrated for The Big Issue. And below that is a listings leaflet I designed for the African Film Festival a while back.

Strongrooms Mural

Strongrooms, based in Old Street have just opened up a new post production suite called Picture House. They very kindly asked me decorate their newly purchased foyer. They gave me almost complete free reign which was amazing but I only had a budget of £50. Here's the result...its a mixture of collaged prints and acrylic paints. If you're ever in the area, pop and see it on Singer St.

Bollocks to Poverty Banner

Action Aid commissioned me to illustrate a banner for their Bollocks to Poverty campaign. Here's my spiel.... 

"The idea behind my illustration is quite simply "what environment would you rather live in?" To show this I juxtaposed a rich healthy environment with a grey, polluted one. Most people would choose the rich and colorful environment; but not everyone has a choice. I just wanted make people think about the extremes of affluence and poverty in the world and how we should help those less privileged than ourselves."

Digital Arts Showcase

Christmas really got in the way of me posting this up but here it is. Digital Arts Magazine published a nice little showcase of my work. A big thanks to Johann for sorting that :) More updates to come...
