My 'Self Portrait' illustration project won first prize in its category at the 2008 D&AD Student Awards. This work was featured in the D&AD New Blood Design exhibition, was one of Creative Review's picks and was part of a presentation I gave at a London D&AD New Blood Pecha Kucha night. I was then commissioned to do illustrative work for The Guardian and many other publications. Please see my illustration section here.
