BORN FREE FOUNDATION

hello sailors

logos.jpg

i was lucky enough to be asked to design the winter range of merchandise for the Born Free Foundation last year. the brief was to design some threads that would appeal to a wider audience than just their regular donators and supporters - some that might appeal to the younger generations as well. the chosen wording was a number of variations on “born WILD”, “stay WILD”, “born FREE” etc

take a look at my designs below, with some snaps of a couple of the tshirts themselves. all available to purchase from their shop, with the proceeds going towards animal welfare work.

sussex life magazine interview!

hi chaps

sussex life magazine were lovely enough to interview me for their january issue this year, taking up their artist residency slot! it was quite nerve racking being interviewed over the phone, so i think i blabbed a little, but they were very friendly and it was a trip seeing it in the flesh!

you can find their website here and pictures of the article below!

INKTOBER! #2

hello you people again

here is the rest of my #inktober2018 project! i’ve even made them all into a little video. and i’m still hoping to make them in to some sort of compilation zine, like a little bestiary.

it was really satisfying, and quite the challenge, to draw a thingy like this once a day. i’d well like to do it again next october.

who’s your fave?

thankz

INKTOBER!

hello old boys

for this year’s inktober challenge i’ve decided to draw a new little creature everyday, posted to my instagram. i’m using it as an exercise in character design, imagination, and perhaps most importantly, time management. hopefully it’ll be quite rewarding to have a finished something everyday. i’m planning on compiling them all at the end in to some sort of compendium, a ‘bestiary’ if you will. i already have a name but i’ll keep that a secret for now.

come follow along!

i realise it is the 12th already when i’m posting this, but let it be known, i haven’t missed a day yet! all the existing ones are below for your perusal.

thanks you lot

Brighton Summit

i was asked early this year to brand the Brighton Summit (website here) - a local business convention held in my city. they needed a long list of stuff, all with the same visual theme. the event theme was 'embrace the unknown', so i decided to go with a design based around a journey. lots of little hills, with the characters unable to see where they're headed.

ALSO this was really cool. one of the little slides i designed to promote the event has been featured in the adverts of all films shown at Duke of Yorks cinema in brighton, a huge institution that i've known since forever. that felt cool. here's a piccy of that.

the event is on 13th october so i'll be sure to take some snaps on the day.

Will of the People

YAY! i have recently been lucky enough to be asked to illustrate my first book. it's called 'WILL OF THE PEOPLE' and is a satirical picturebook about brexit, as told from the perspective of a family of bears.

sarah bee, the author, and i successfully crowd-funded the project through kickstarter (HERE) and have now begun production. it's 30 pages long, and full colour, so i have my work cut out for me. 

i shall post progress updates as i go.. :o)

the first page!

SICK 'EM

my most recent time lapse drawing video. i used some software called OBS which you can set to record an area on one of your screens - i just set it to record the canvas area of my photoshop window and voila! it's quite satisfying. i wish i could draw this fast in real time.

check the finished illustration below.

SURE

a lil design drawn over the weekend with the idea of putting it on t-shirts - something i've been meaning to do for agez. tried to marry some letter design with my characters, came out slightly less legible than i'd have liked... here are some details close up.

some process pics are below, including the first initial sketches. i started with the letters, then used them as shapes to fill in with the characters. 

hope to see this on some shirts soon so stay tuned :o)
