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 🙂

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

 

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!

Sunflower

Miles Morales – The Sunflower

An amazing film, probably the best animation of 2018! It’s just breathtaking, beautifully executed and so visually pleasing! I had to draw some fan art. Above all the representation in this film is so important, even I didn’t realise how much until I finished the movie the impact this has. It’s things like this that drive me forward in order to make sure there is more diversity in art and animation.

Comic continued

I recently begun my idea to create a self-love comic series depicting the everyday struggles around mental health and how we can tackle them. I was feeling quite low when I drew this, but I felt much better once getting it out. Just goes to show the power of Art! And of course, I shall continue this story when I have completed another animated lyric video commission.
