About me
I'm an illustrator, based in London. Recent clients include Amazon, WIRED, Esquire, JACOBIN, Glamour, Times Online, Harper Collins and End Water Poverty. I produce distinctive illustrations with a bouncy flowing line and spot colour / halftone or flat bright colour. I also run a collaborative/ participatory design practice, called Pencil & Help. Find out more about us and get in touch on our website. I'm always developing new work, and I'm always interested in professional feedback - so please get in touch if you'd like to ask me anything or see a bit more of what I do
  • Ferment magazine cover
    Cover illustration for the September 2020 issue of Ferment magazine. Focusing on craft beer producers of New York City and the Hudson Valley, I used the Hudson River and some NYC icons to set a scene that expresses the buzzy silly feeling of sharing a beer or two! Designer/ Art Director: Ashley Johnston
  • Collective Hope
    I participated in a collaborative project for Campbell Hay Branding, called Collective Hope. CH paired creatives from around the world to collaborate on Google Sheets. I worked with Jackie Liu all the way over in Melbourne, Australia! It was a fun project and interesting to try using the software creatively like this.
  • The Race
    Illustration produced to promote Creative Care Packages, a project designed to produce free creative activities during COVID-19 lockdown.
  • Creative Care Package
    Creative Care Package is a regular series of creative projects, available for free as printable resources during the COVID-19 lockdown. Creativity can make a big difference to how we cope with adversity, especially when it is shared. As access to schools and cultural institutions all over the world is restricted due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, Creative Care Package is here to help everyone to keep creative space in their lives.
