About me
I’m a visual artist/illustrator, with some experience as an advertising creative. I'd describe myself as a 'nostalgic nerd' - my style and character-centred work is an amalgamation of my love for anime, manga, games, music and cartoons.
Projects
  • Ciao Bella

  • Balotelli Flex - Weird Euros X Goals4Girls X Adidas Collective
    Balotelli Flex - Weird Euros X Goals4Girls X Adidas CollectiveI designed a beer mat for Weird Euros, in collaboration with Goals4Girls and Adidas Collective. The project celebrates some of the weirdly wonderful moments from the Euros, featuring artwork from a variety of artists and designers.
  • If You Don't Know
    If You Don't KnowFirst time doing something like this, but I had the pleasure of creating the artwork for 'If You Don't Know', a new BBC 1Xtra podcast, hosted by De-Graft Mensah and Roshan Roberts. It's available to listen to on BBC Sounds, iTunes, Spotify etc.
  • The Mythos of Food in New York Rap
    The Mythos of Food in New York RapA fun commission piece for Vittles - 'The Mythos of Food in New York Rap', article written by Jesse Bernard. The full article can be read here: https://vittles.substack.com/p/the-mythos-of-food-in-new-york-rap
  • NoodleDOOM
    NoodleDOOMMF DOOM, one of Hip Hop's most iconic characters heavily inspired the creation of my own alter-ego: 'Noodle Boy'. I would've loved to have worked with him someday. In his passing, 'NoodleDOOM' is a tribute that feels very fitting. A fan-made, posthumous team up with the villain, recreating some of his cover art, in the style of Noodle Boy.
  • Social Work
    Social WorkCommission for London-based and Bangladeshi-inspired custom bag brand - Social Work. I created 3 Bangladeshi characters to model the bags - incorporating traditional clothing, photos and other aspects of the brands heritage. Social Work: https://www.instagram.com/socialworklondon

    Creative InternAnalogFolk
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    I worked in a team, alternating between copywriting and art direction. We were consistently able to get potential ideas pitched to clients at Unilever for brands such as Pot Noodle, Hellmanns and Persil. I also designed posters and cards for work events. We played a key part in recommending talent in the initial phases for campaigns - notably Beats collaboration with Ashnikko via Tik Tok.

     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Creative Intern, And Rising I paired up with another creative from the Commercial Break team. We were responsible for a range of tasks: writing scripts, copy for print and social, storyboarding, creating mockups and more. I worked on brands such as KCB, Urban Jungle and Kopparberg. We were given an hour to respond to a brief for Sixt which resulted in our first 6 sheet ad. On another occasion, we created a social post for the brand that garnered 74,000 impressions on a reduced budget. Another creative highlight was naming the new printer - 'Prince'.
