Who?
As an illustrator I’ve mostly worked on editorials - it’s enabled me to use visual metaphor to translate abstract notions into relatable images. I’ve also worked on a broad array of different projects over the years; including packaging, gig & film posters, book jackets, book covers, fully illustrated books, tourist maps, LP sleeves, apparel, wrapping paper and some animation.

Working as a filmmaker I’ve had my short films screened at festivals in the UK and abroad. I’m currently developing new short films, a few animations & an indie game whilst continuing to illustrate for clients both old and new.
