A collection of recent illustration and design commissions.

 

RAN Music: Independent Beijing Record Label                                                                 

Working in collaboration with artists signed to Ran Music and their sub-labels ‘Ran Groove’ and ‘Ran Rad’ to produce custom hand drawn and digital illustrated EP designs, in response to the textures and tangible effect of the music. Including artwork layout and graphic design direction and liaising with the printing mill, on printing specifications and production for the vinyl releases.

 

‘Inner Demons’

Think part pig demon from Princess Monoke mixed with Howl's feels in his castle...Mine are anxiety and overthinking. What are yours?

This personal illustration was created for Brighton-based Artist Lucy Irving, as part of her book launch and charity print sale. Her book titled: ‘Exercise Your Demons: A Mindful Journal’ addresses the awareness of mental health issues and offers 'a devilishly creative solution’ to identifying and managing your inner demons, by suggesting that you get to know them.

My submission is based on the song 'Live in Dreams' by a band called Wild Nothing and the illustration is of the dreamy skies I was lucky to be surrounded with on a trip to Iceland in September 2016.
