I’ve been itching to play with ink pens again and #Inktober has offered me the perfect excuse! This global illustration challenge invites illustrators and doodlers to set themselves the task of creating a new ink illustration every day throughout October.
I finished up another set of designs for my ongoing Specimen Series, adding to my army of colourful quirky characters! I’m taking my time with the series, working on them during my breaks, playing around and experimenting as I go.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup Panini sticker book contains 682 stickers featuring players, stadiums and badges from the 32 nations taking part. However, as the book is released in April and the National Team Squads aren’t announced until May, that often means some footballers aren’t included in the book.
Meet Patch! The new mascot character for Hoorah – a mobile first professional feedback platform, where anyone can give anyone feedback.
I love Halloween – mainly because it’s the perfect excuse to create illustrations of weird monsters and supernatural characters!
I’ve been working with We Heart Arts on a new music themed T-Shirt and Sticker design, to raise funds for their non-profit which helps young people’s creative arts programs across the world.
I don’t do many print releases these days so I’ve made this one extra special. This 9×9″ Happy Fox is printed on a lush 300gsm smooth rag with vibrant archival inks.
After years of loyal service, it was time to retire my old mascot character and replace her with a new and improved design. Whilst I liked her overall look, in practice I found the proportions and details too rigid to work with in a dynamic way.
One of my favourite things about designing infographics is that I always get to learn something new! This was very much the case whilst taking part in Infohackit Manchester. The hackathon style event, hosted by Made Agency, invited participating Designers and PHD students to create compelling infographics, all within a timed 12 hour period.
I’m a big believer in the best pens being whatever you have to hand, as when you have an idea any pen will do! I’ve seen some amazing pieces created with some of the cheapest biros, so not having “the right pens” shouldn’t be an excuse (unless you’re attempting to paint a mural with nothing but an old potato).
