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!

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.

The Yellow Diamond

A good friend of mine (and also dedicated client!) has commissioned me to illustrate another picture to give his lady friend as a birthday present. I was first given this task last year and comparing the 2017 illustration to this year’s one, I am so happy and impressed with how much I have improved not only with my skill, but with my composition, colouring and speed.
