Projects
  • Missing Girl
    Missing GirlShort story written & illustrated by me following a young trangender boy on his first night on the streets after running away from home, with a splintered timeline and a focus on highly atmospheric scenes.
  • How Many More?
    How Many More?A series of portraits illustrating people of colour who have been killed by Police across the world, posted individually as gifs which slowly faded away. Each was accompanied by their last words and key pieces of information about their story, posted once a day during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement following George Floyd's death in 2020. I staggered them as my aim was to ensure the conversation was not forgotten again and to show that Floyd was far from an isolated incident.
  • Rest In Pavements
    Rest In PavementsA series of cardboard gravestones memorialising homeless people who died on the streets of Bristol, left where they died for the public to walk past, read their stories & remember them.
