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.
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.
I was commissioned by talented singer Blits to create an animated lyric video for his new song ‘Not Like You’.
Hearing this for the first time, it was so catchy and I was amazed at his talent. I was very flattered Blits wanted to work with me and create an animation for his awesome tune! Blits was awesome to work with and I’m really pleased with the outcome of this, it’s my first lyric video and there is more to come soon in the future!
Working with Nics Music UK, I helped create a strategy for the design and promo of his second upcoming EP: Stories for MANDY launch party! I also designed the album artwork for his EP, it can now be preordered on all good music platforms.
I’m really proud of everything we have achieved so far with our collaboration and time has really flown by, the launch party night is going to AMAZING!

I created my first vlog of my travels out in Japan! This was so much fun to make and I definitely will be returning to Japan soon too.
Please take a look and enjoy!
Apologies for the lack of posts, I went on holiday to Japan and have come back fuelled with inspiration and more projects in the pipeline. I am also working on a vlog of my trip there so watch this space!
My friend Devina runs her own travel blog website and has started a segment called ‘Fab Friends’ and has interviewed me! You can read it here:
She is beautiful, inspiring and a great role model to look up to. It’s Yara Shahidi!
Beyonce was the first black female artist to headline at Coachella and her performance was AMAZING! I wanted to create an illustration to celebrate such a great moment and appreciate the Queen Bey herself!
