Another piece of EP artwork I’m pleased to share with you! Vinnie and I collaborated on this to really get her vision across and it’s become something so deep and beautiful, I’m really happy to have done this! Have a listen to her EP too here: https://soundcloud.com/vinnieeek/sets/youtopia

Scroll through the gallery to see the progress from start to finish of the acrylic painting! I absolutely love Willow Smith and after her latest album dropped, I was inspired to paint her and this selfie she posted was so colourful and ethereal, I just had to paint it! I absolutely love painting and found it incredibly relaxing – I definitely will be doing more. ๐Ÿ™‚

Interview

I was interviewed by the lovely Heeral whom I met on a project for young people that I was coordinating last year. She studies illustration and needed to write an interview and essay about her favourite illustration – which was a piece done by me! I am very flattered and happy to share this ๐Ÿ™‚

Summertime

I was hoping for a sunny summer in London just like last year but it’s not pulling through. So instead here is a tropical doodle illustration of me procrastinating about summer!

72 birds for Grenfell

ย 

A t-shirt design I did in collaboration with a colleague and friend of mine affected by the terrible incident at Grenfell Tower back in 2017. We wanted to create something in remembrance and he had a vision to create something with 72 doves, he commissioned me to bring his idea to life. I was strongly inspired by MC Escher here and used the optical illusion of birds intertwining and shaping in to one another to create this final design. I feel it really represents the togetherness of the community and each bird represents one of those lost in the fire.

triggered – jhene aiko

In love with listening to Jhene Aiko at the moment and redrew the album artwork for ‘Triggered (freestyle)’.

I am really getting in to drawing album artworks and will be illustrating more for some of my favourite songs – watch this space!
