Projects
  • Casio - F-91W Illustration
    Casio - F-91W IllustrationThis was a damn fun project! Gotta love a classic Casio F9W-1 watch, takes me back to being a youngen. I’m an 80s kid with a 90s childhood. This watch is retro to the max. I’m thinking of reliving my childhood and buying another one of these soon but in the mean time I have this vector I created in Adobe Illustrator, exported as a Adobe Photoshop file and imported into ProCreate in the iPad Pro add some extra shading and a paper style background and shadows.
  • Christmas Present Commission
    Christmas Present CommissionI was commissioned to create the illustrations for this present for my partner Nattie's grandmother. All the items on here were things that reminded Nattie of her nan Bubbles growing up. This piece was dear to my heart as I know how personal and heartfelt this was to her and to see the smile on Bubbles face when she opened it on Christmas day was priceless and made it completely worth it. Nattie did the layout and colour work for this project. Check out her amazing design work here: nattiedesi

    Fine Art BA (hons)UEL University of East London
     - London, United Kingdom
    Fine art undergraduate degree. I completed the first year. It was incomplete due to medical reasons. Initially I took a year out to medically recover with the intentions of returning the following year but fees had increased drastically during this period. I weighed up the debt I would be subsequently left in compared to job prospects and decided to leave it open as to whether I will take up completing the studies in future.
