    Hogwarts

    Prints for sale on request This work involved a lot more detailed assets than my cityscapes, largely due to all of the stone walls, tiled roofs, etc. It also involved […]

    New York, New York!

    Prints for sale on request Okay, it’s eBoy influenced, but it’s also got the Flatiron building and the Empire State, and the restaurant from Seinfeld. I really wanted to have […]

    London Calling 2!

      Prints for sale on request I’ve returned to pixel art, at least for the time being, following a portfolio review. And I’ve been working on character sheets, mainly sitcom […]

    2017 Booklists

    I’m not sure where the geometric idea came from – probably just the requirement to differentiate the lists as much as possible from the 2016 set. The backgrounds were originally […]

    2016 Booklists

    These designs ended up looking really striking and allowed for the covers to be a decent size. The tidy design made them stand out from last year’s posters which would […]

    This is My Dream

    This is My Dream is the 2017 Tower Hamlets Creative Writing Competition, and our first to get Arts Council funding (thanks to my superb bid-writing skills 🙂 ) – which […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Must Read Booklist 2014

    Must Read Booklist 2014

    The Must Read posters are the sister set to the Teen Booklist and generally follow the same visual teme. That meant another 5 doodle art posters to draw. And I […]

    Tower Hamlets Teen Booklist 2014

    So my manager decides that we need a different design to the last few years, which have been rather clean and tidy, so I decided to return to the grunge […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Pixel Library

    Pixel Library

    My pixel art Hogwarts is still ongoing, but this is my latest poster – the Tower Hamlets Schools Library Services in it’s new premesis. The design was intended to stand […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Black skies

    Black skies

    I wanted at least one opening line that could be worked into sci-fi. This is a bit of a John Wyndham apocalyptic sci-fi, but I think it’s quite atmospheric. This […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Apples in suitcases

    Apples in suitcases

    I’m not sure whether any entrants have interpreted the ‘apple’ as an iPhone. I like this design but it’s certainly the most leading in terms of genre, but then again […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Jumping from windows

    Jumping from windows

    Being totally unused to Adobe Illustrator, this was the toughest of the 4 posters given the amount going on, but the crisp lines leant themselves well to the movement. The […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Spinning heads and deep holes

    Spinning heads and deep holes

    This shamelessly riffed on Hitchcock film posters and was one of the earliest designs for this series of posters, it was also the most abstract and was the reason that […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: THe List 2011: Spirit

    THe List 2011: Spirit

    The final poster in the 2011 series, and the one that didn’t quite survive being turned into CMYK colors.

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: THe List 2011: Water

    THe List 2011: Water

    I love this poster. The colours and composition just work. This was the first in the series that I created and it inspired the whole elemental symbolism of the others. […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: THe List 2011: Fire

    THe List 2011: Fire

    Poster 3 in the 2011 series was Fire. The art was a deliberate reversal of composition from Water, but re-used some elements of Air.

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: THe List 2011: Air

    THe List 2011: Air

    Poster 2 of the 2011 series was Air. The background is predominantly skyscrapers and other architecture from around Tower Hamlets.

    A variety of booklists

    I’ve collected here a selection of the booklist poster sets that I’ve produced since 2010 for schools. The 2010 design was in honour of the eBook project that we’d launched […]

    Wonder : The launch of the 2013 Tower Hamlets Book Award

    I’d returned to PhotoShop for this poster because I knew I could use it to work up a highly detailed piece fairly quickly. I hadn’t intended it, but some entrants […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: London Calling

    London Calling

    London Calling is my latest poster for schools – intended as inspiration for the 2012 Tower Hamlets Creative Writing Competition. It’s also the most ambitions and complex piece I’ve worked […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: A poster of book covers

    A poster of book covers

    It’s enough of a challenge to create a poster around a single book cover. Taking on the work of over half a dozen artists and turning these wildly different designs […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Crossing the line

    Crossing the line

    The anti-Coalition cutback subtext runs throughout this poster – unsurprising given that many of my colleagues were made redundant during the planning phase. It speaks volumes that I’ve been asked […]

  • Thumbnail for the post titled: Love and Hate

    Love and Hate

    This is the original uncensored poster with guns and knives intact. The brief was a contemporary art take on Romeo and Juliet, until a couple of head teachers decided that […]
