I offer illustration and graphic design services and have previously worked on Logos, Business Cards, Web Elements, Band Art, Album Covers, Book Illustration and more. I provide a professional yet personal service, working closely with clients to achieve unique and effective designs to make their business stand out.
The design process usually starts with an initial consultation to establish the purpose, personality, vision and target audience. This is translated into a set of initial designs. Then, based on feedback from these, the design is narrowed down to a final 3 ideas which will then lead to the finished outcome.

Artwork for Everafter's punchy new single "Who You Are", which is scheduled for release later this year.
The band wanted the image of a tree in black and white.
I designed a very simple but striking tree silhouette in white against black. The band loved the artwork and it will work well on their single cover and merchandise.
Illustrations for Angela Carter's 'The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories.'
The book includes a collection of dark tales, exploring the latent content of traditional fairy tales and folk tales.
I illustrated scenes from 'In the Company of Wolves', 'The Bloody Chamber' and 'Puss in Boots.' I also created a book jacket design, illustrated with a white rose, which was a symbolic and reoccurring theme throughout the stories.
I entered these illustrations for The Folio Society's Book Illustration Competition and was highly commended, shortlisted in the top 20 out of over 500.
Abbot Peter: A Habit For Crime.
I was asked to design a simple, silhouette style logo for a new crime fiction series: Abbot Peter Mysteries by Simon Parke. It needed to feature the main character- Abbot Peter, as well as the strap line: 'A Habit for Crime.' The logo will be featured on the book covers and in publicity to give the series a cohesive, recognizable identity.

Book cover illustration for 'Grimms Fairy Tales.'
I used the idea of a wood for the cover as many of the stories have woodland/ forest settings. The bold contrast of black and orange would stand out well on the shelf and the stenciled layers build up texture and depth. I wanted to keep a fairy tale look but also create a slightly more creepy feel to denote the books darker side.
Illustration as part of a collective calendar design.
Book illustration for Kicking the Black Mamba.
I was asked to illustrate a Black Mamba snake to be used for chapter headings in the book.

I was hired to design the logo for a new film company, Panda Reel. The logo needed a professional look, suitable for use on the Panda Reel website and business cards. After working through a variety of ideas, a simple silhouette design was chosen. It represents a panda paw with a film reel inside, symbolizing the company name and vocation. The text is rendered in two contrasting fonts, which adds some character and a contemporary feel. This clean, minimal and versatile logo can be used in any colour, in square or horizontal layouts and with or without the text, making it ideal for use across a range of marketing strategies.

Artwork for Everafter's outstanding Debut Album Everything Is One.
Everafter is an emerging three-piece rock band from East-London, UK.
The band was interested in a space theme with an emphasis on light. After the initial discussion and design stage, I used combination of painting, drawing and digital media to create the final piece.
I also designed Everafter's logo which has a strong, solid feel with a slightly grunge/ distressed look.
Everafter just signed with Hummdrumm Records and the album will be released early 2014, check out their Facebook group to find out more!
Some examples of business card designs I did while working with Webwig.
A self initiated project illustrating on Ray Bradbury’s gothic novel ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes.’
The book is about a mysterious carnival that comes to town. As two boys explore, they discover the carnival's dark secrets. When night falls, all the side-show characters turn into their acts-the thin man becomes a real living skeleton, and the sinister ring leader 'Mr Dark' becomes the 'Illustrated Man;' covered with moving tattoos of his cursed side-show performers.
I created a body of work illustrating characters from the book, including a life-size jointed puppet of the main character ‘Mr Dark'.
