About me
I'm a freelance illustrator & filmmaker based in London, UK, where I spend most of my time using visual metaphor to play with abstract concepts. I've been working as a freelance illustrator for ~9 years for all sorts of international clients and brands, including directing animation. In recent years I've made several live-action short films, one of which recently screened at London Short Film Festival 2019 (After-Party).

In late 2017 they up-scaled their roasters from a small stabbur (traditional Norwegian stilted building) to a larger custom-built building in the same complex in Hjelseng

  • Beery Christmas
    Beery ChristmasFor Christmas 2018 I worked on a busy illustration of a fantastical scene inside a beer warehouse, to be used as an advent calendar box packed with 24 beers. It was commissioned by French beer distributers Saveur Biere so that the adults could have a novelty treat-a-day countdown to Christmas. Not only is the image packed full of action, it also has an in-built adventure trail game. Once you’ve opened the first door, there are clues to find the next beer drawn on the inside of the cap. Each c
