I've been away on my travels, but now I am back! And here is some things I have been working on for a childrens' book- featuring my favourite animal; the 'mexican walking fish' or Axolotl.
A new editorial Illustration from me. I wanted to experiment with graphic elements combined with lots of drawing, and hand done bits. So far I'm enjoying it!
Here is a new piece that I created for a new book called 'Lucidity', a collection of illustrations on the theme of dreams. I recycled fragmnents of some previous seen and unseen work to create a jumbled-up dream emerging from the sleepers heart and mind.
I did the illustration for this a while ago, and I have been meaning to turn it into a mock up book cover for a while. I wanted a beat-up old paperback feel to the cover, to match with the old books that are an important start of the story. It's a great book, and definately worth a read!
I've been working on some designs for an interesting project; a live action mixed with animation theatre production! My illustrations will be turned into animations and projected over different parts of the performance. The story has a mysterious and dream-like atmosphere, something I've been trying to capture in these rough ideas for some of the storys' locations.
I have been giving my website a spring clean, taking down some old work and sprucing up the whole site! I will be gradually posting some of the older work that is now homeless on the blog; such as these paper toys I created for the paperbird project and for speakerdog paper toys series 5. Now available for your viewing pleasure! top: 'komrade' bottom : 'legend'.
I've been doing some work on my website recently, and here is a little thing pointing the way to this blog! Featuring the return of a familiar face...
Some theatre promotional items I've recently completed. A poster and the front and back of a flyer. This was a really enjoyable challenge, especially since the play deals with such difficult topics that had to be handled in a sensitive way. The play is now showing at the Old Red Lion theatre, London. Hit the link to find out more: Old Red Lion Theatre (link will open in a new window)
