New artwork for new single Cosy by the talented and most loyal bro Nics featuring the OG Manga St. Hilare. Really happy with this piece because of the use of colour and the fun of portraying a burning sunset. The single Cosy is now available to stream on all streaming platforms, check it out!
This project has been a work in progress for the past couple of months for the talented and good friend Safiyyah. She’s dropping her first EP and it was a great opportunity for us to finally collaborate and create something amazing! We work together at our local leisure centre and instantly hit it off as friends, we vibe so well (and so do our art forms!) and always used to discuss that we one day have to collaborate on something together – and here it is! I hope this is the first of many collaborations for us.
The EP ‘Third Eye’ will be released by the end of this month on all good streaming platforms! You can also check out her singles on Spotify here.
The work continues on making album artwork illustrations for EPs and singles! I always enjoy doing these because it’s so rewarding seeing the track out on all good streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music etc.) with my artwork clearly shown. The latest piece and also a popular favourite is ‘All of Them’ by Sa’el who was wonderful to work with!
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
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.
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!
I am now a fully qualified Arts Facilitator for the Arts Award!
This is a big accomplishment for me, I am now able to run art activities for young people and get them fully accredited with a recognised certification to help further their careers. I definitely have achieved a life long goal of mine and this is only the beginning!
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!
