Compsognathus vs Bavarisaurus. 2018
Compsognathus vs Bavarisaurus. 2018A Compsognathus fossil, once thought to be discovered carrying an embryo, was later found to be housing the skeleton of a Bavarisaurus lizard that had been swallowed whole.A while ago I drew a lot of rocks for a magazine feature, and as a wind down from that, I drew some more. The perspective was purposefully not just ‘straight on’, and bloody challenging as a result (you don’t need to know how many drawings were scrapped before I was happy with the poses).

The Tidal Man. The Truth Issue, Popshot Magazine. 2018Editorial illustration for Popshot Magazine, to accompany a written piece, called The Tidal Man, by writer Anna Ghislena. The story tells the tale of the sea getting angry at sea pollution, and the line “The Tidal Man crashes a mangled fist upon the shore and was silent no more” inspired the drawing.

Inevitable. The Future Issue, Popshot Magazine. 2017
Inevitable. The Future Issue, Popshot Magazine. 2017Popshot Magazine sent me a poem to create an illustration for, by Nick Toczek. To reflect the meaning of the poem, without wanting to use any visuals actually mentioned in the piece, I settled on the idea of drawing an old writing desk. This was where I wanted to imply that the poem had been written, but with the old objects faded and being taken over by new objects belonging to the grandchild of the writer.Inevitable, by Nick ToczekAnd when my metered years have petered outextend brief grief to these my bitter bonesthis frame on which so long my shape was hungaround loud beating heart and breathing lungwhen living hands have taken up the toolsto neatly notch the letters of my nameand my cold corpse has called in old and youngby gathering all those it was amongaround a carapace freed now from thoughtprepared and brought by no one known to meand chosen words have flown from every tonguetill echoes fade from phrases said and sungand then when cars have hurried comers homeand movement – slowed for me – resumes its pacemy ashes may be stored or poured and flungbut thrive, you left alive to whom I clung.
Nail Varnish. Body Confidence Zine, Girl Gang Sheffield. 2017
Nail Varnish. Body Confidence Zine, Girl Gang Sheffield. 2017An illustration submission to Girl Gang’s Body Confidence themed zine. I liked the idea of approaching the image with ambiguity. I wanted to show something that could be seen in multiple ways, depending on the viewer and how they see themselves in relation to the image. They may see themselves in the focal figure, sat on the bathroom floor in her underwear, painting her toenails. It's, I assume, a fairly common scenario, but an intimate moment; one people rarely encounter or share with others. They may see themselves as an outsider, the viewer. She could seem beautiful, or she could seem a little pathetic and lonely. The intention is that, depending on the person, this image could be seen as a positive (someone doing something to feel better about themselves), it could be seen as quite depressing (as though painting her toenails is insignificant and won't fix anything), or perhaps even funny, as an observational piece, in a bleak, millennial-humour kind of way.I don't feel as though the zine subject is something that personally means much to me at all, but - as with any brief - I wanted to engage the audience sincerely. To be raw and emotional but subtle, and not provocative.
Passenger. 2017
Passenger. 2017I’m weirdly obsessed with things that are really big and really small. I wanted to draw something that highlighted the vast size differences between prehistoric dinosaurs and flying reptiles. This is a self-initiated illustration of a Rhamphorhynchus clinging onto a Brachiosaurus.
'Alexa, is it Adele you're looking for?' The Sunday Times Culture magazine. 2018
'Alexa, is it Adele you're looking for?' The Sunday Times Culture magazine. 2018An editorial illustration for The Sunday Times Culture Magazine, for an article about what artist is played first when people request the song ‘Hello’ through an Amazon Echo device. I suggested the headline 'Alexa, is it Adele you're looking for?', which was what they used in print.
The Dream Issue cover, Popshot Magazine. 2018
The Dream Issue cover, Popshot Magazine. 2018Popshot Magazine asked me to illustrate the cover of the August 2018 Dream Issue. After several idea generation stages, we agreed that otters would be most fun. As otters are known for floating with a rock on their stomachs, I suggested that the scene would involve otters playing with the moon. This fit the aim of dreamy, surreal, and really played with scale.
