New butterfly vest on The Rise & Fall

My butterfly illustration from last year can now be seen on vest on The Rise & Fall website. Really liking the look of it on clothing - you can check it out here

Elephant pillow featured on Primrose Mag

I was so excited a couple of months ago when Primrose Mag, based in the US, contacted me via Instagram about a post they had done about my elephant pillow, which they had discovered on The Rise & Fall website. How flattering to be featured! Their website is really beautiful and great for creative inspiration. You can see the post here -

Still seeing my illustrations on new products, this time it's my cat illustration applied to a vest. It can be seen on The Rise & Fall website here

New homepage for The Rise & Fall

Feather Repeat Pattern

Here's the 3 feathers duplicated into a repeat pattern design. To be used for a serious of soft/ home furnishing products.

Aztec Feather Illustrations

Individual pen and ink illustrations of feathers to be used in a repeat pattern. I always love to use geometric shapes in my illustration and particularly focused on Aztec and Navajo inspired patterns in this series.

Storyboarding for Tracc Films

Another commission for Tracc Films, this time a storyboard for a pitch to luxury escorted tour company, Insight Vacations. This was my first time ever using a Wacom tablet to illustrate. With only 3 evenings to master the technique, I found it extremely challenging as it really tested my hand to eye co-ordination, having to draw on the tablet surface whilst looking at the computer screen. It was hard to translate my natural illustration style into this digital format, but the outcome was successful and fulfilled the brief. Tracc Films also won the pitch, so I'd like to think my storyboard helped that along in some way!

Commissioned illustrations for stacking cups by Shlos

In the autumn of 2012 last year I had the pleasure of working with my friend and product designer Chloe Lee Carson on an idea for her first ever product to go to market. Based on the idea of the game 'Exquisite Corpse', I created a series of 9 different illustrations to be applied to sets of stacking cups. When twisted, the body parts of the various animals and people on each cup would join up to create a new surreal creature. 

Shortly after Chloe entered the idea under the design name Shlos into a design competition/mentoring scheme with the Southbank Centre and Observer, eventually becoming one of the finalists. The cups can now been seen and bought in the Southbank shop! It's such an achievement to see my illustrations on products instore. 

You see the stacking cups here on the Southbank Centre shop website - 
and on the Shlos website -

Collaborative animation for Tracc Films

Back in December last year myself, illustrator Steph Kirchem and editor/motion graphics designer Claud Jehu created an animation for corporate video production company Tracc Films. Intended to be their showreel for the Tracc website, we created a short video to communicate their methodology to potential customers. The illustrated components were a joint effort between myself and Steph, then edited and animated by Claud.
