AOI prize for illustration 2015
My entry for this year's Association of Illustrators prize. The theme this year was London places and spaces. I chose to imagine what might be beneath the surface of London's Southbank.
An exploration of the hidden spaces of London's rich history and myths: secret bunkers, lost treasure, the buried Skylon, plague pits, underground rivers forgotten structures and lives....the detritus of the past that surrounds us and has shaped the city of today.
Cover for Desktop magazine. I was given free rein to create a risograph cover for the 'Obsessive, compulsive self-publish' issue, exploring the potential of independent print publishing at the hands of the liberated graphic designer. August 2014.
Fruit trees for Unlimited

LOVE magazine #11 as a sketchbook. Using collage, paint, and paper cuts to respond to the printed imagery within.
New playful pattern collection for fabric. Inspired by Patrick Heron's late Garden paintings and his joy at the interaction of shape and colour.
Serco Prize 2014
My shortlisted entry for the Association of Illustrators Serco Prize 2014. Small Kindnesses. Displayed at the London Stories exhibition at the London Transport museum (February to April 2014).
The illustration shows the story of Charles Mackay, a crossing sweeper who worked from his patch on Fleet street for over 50 years. Little is known about him, though he was thought to be an ex-slave from Jamaica. He features in many artworks of the early 19th century, and was drawn by Hogarth and Cruickshank.
The daughter of the linen drapers opposite his patch, would bring him food and drink on cold days. When Mackay died in 1854 he left her a fortune, rumoured to be £7000.
Their story crosses the boundaries of time, class, and race. I wanted the scene to reflect this. The view is a timeless London, from Fleet street where Mackay worked, up Ludgate hill towards St Paul's cathedral.
