Butterfly Conservation Charity Posters


Uni project 'Endangered Species.' The brief was to come up with 4 posters on an endangered species and I found the 'Butterfly conservation' charity online and designed posters for 4 of their appeals.
These posters are based on moth and butterfly wing patterns. The backgrounds are monoprints and scanned paint textures and the lettering and their logo are all hand-drawn.

Sketchbook - Butterly Project



Since I haven't updated with new work in a while I thought I'd post a couple of sketchbook pages from my latest uni project (appeal posters for the charity 'butterfly conservation'.)

Mill Road Winter Fair

I couldn't hang around as I had a society event running in the afternoon, but I thought our stall at the Mill Road Winter Fair looked awesome so I thought I'd put up one of the photos I took:

Xmas Cards for Winter Fair

The third years on my course traditionally have a stall selling our own creations at the Mill Road Winter fair in Cambridge. Alongside the zine image I've already posted, I designed three Christmas cards which will be sold on the stall.

Mill Road Zine


I'm in my final year if my Illustration BA now and it's traditional for 3rd years to have a stall at the Mill Road Winter Fair in order to raise funds for the final year degree show. A couple of guys in my class are putting together a zine of peoples work with a Cambridge theme. I've got so much to do at the moment that I didn't have time to draw something entirely new so I cobbled this together using some sketchbook drawings from the zoology museum and a post-it note. Hopefully it looks pretty good! :3

Victory Documented 2: the Booklet






Stephen's photos of the interior of the booklet. It's nice to see how it looks printed rather than the raw images. :3

Victory Documented!






A friend of mine is a 3rd year photography student and as a return favour he helped me out by taking some product photos of my V for Victory album for my portfolio (please excuse my bad cut-and-pasting on the last one!). Now you can see what the finished product looks like rather than just the pre-printed imagery.

Phantom Limbs



My latest Portfolio development project is illustrating a chapter from the book 'The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat.' My chapter is on phantom limbs and these are the complete cover image and the 5 interior pages of the short booklet I've designed.

An Apple a Day






This is a commission I've just finished for the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge. They gave me the text and asked me to design a black and white trail map booklet for them.

V for Victory



These are images ready to be printed for my current uni project on 'V for Victory.' I'm designing and making a double CD album and these images are for a small booklet I'm including. :)

Birdspeak


A random late night doodle. :)

Clown People


Apparently when I'm running on two hours sleep this is what my head produces of an evening! :p

Geek Love - The Jar Kids (mark 2!)


I've re-worked this first image so it fits in better with the others. Before it was quite a lot simpler but I felt it needed the shadows and a more watery element.

Miss Lick enjoys her chlorine foot bath at the pool, unaware that Oly is plotting her demise! :p

Jar Kids


First draft of the Jar Kids. This is before adding shadows and bubbles. Less atmospheric but I rather like the flat colours.

These are my favorites; two of the dead Jar Kids; Leona the Lizard Girl and Janus the two-headed boy:

ARAMS logo


I'm the secretary of Anglia Ruskin Anime and Manga Society and I've spent most of this afternoon trying to design a simple logo for us. Haven't finalized anything yet but here's some ideas. They are all drawn by hand then scanned for touch-ups and colour alteration.

Things in Jars


Made using a selection of drawings from the zoology museum. hopefully as part of an entry for the searle award - a competition run by my art school.

Print

This is the only print from the Narrative Printmaking module i did that i actually like! (bit of a waste of a module for me I'm afraid. Why i didn't take Drawing Studies instead I'll never know!)
anyway, it's an offset mono-print and here it is:

The Owl and the Warbler



I'm meant to be entering the Cheltenham Illustration Award but I've been distracted trying to get my work organized for hand-in and I'm not sure I'll be able to get it done in time. Anyway, these are drawings of warbler and owl characters for the idea i have for my entry - a little story about an owl following his warbler friend on migration to get away from the rain!

The Cover


The Cover for my book project...and with this it is DONE! XD
...although I'm now tempted to add text to it. At least if i decide to enter it in the McMillan next year.

Tree



This is a reworked image previously showing the little girl looking up at the tree. The perspective was very screwed up and i didn't like the composition so i came up with this instead.
