For this recent Commission I was given the idea rather than the copy. It was interesting to have to make a cliche work

I was recently commissioned to produce the cover for this years Wigtown Book festival brochure.The theme was focusing on  the idea of Wigtown as a destination. People travel from near and far to be at the festival.Here is a mock up of the final open cover design.

Below are various rough versions.
At first I focused too much on my own colour palette with not another thought or research into Wigtown as a place. Overall these where way too 'tropical'

Further roughs, addressing the colour ways but also started to look at the difference between the elments being quite fragnented in a flat space or more of a full landcsape image.

New York Times

Recent Editorail for The New York Times. The article was about solace in the digital age.

Below is a rough sketch for the idea that wasn't used.It tackles the more negative aspect of the article showing  a man instagramming a plant whilst his wive is giving  birth

Wrap magazine

Peepshow were asked to contribute to the next issue of Wrap Magazine which focuses on ' collectives'.
These drawings were for a larger collaborative piece. they are based on the idea that collaborating can not always work and be dysfunctional


Recently I have been working on some possible designs for a wallpaper and fabric print for The Galvin Brothers. The idea is that at the designs focus on the work of a joiner and also the narrative where the products come form and how they are formed. As from tomorrow(12th march)You can see their beautifully crafted work at a pop up shop with an interior space curated by Darkroom. Click here for details.These  designs are all still very much work in progress.

Possible fabric repeat

currently the most successful  design , using the narrative and forms- need to be developed in colour

Illustration test

An illustration for a job I recently tested on.I cant say too much about the content as unfortunately I didn't get the job  but I had to work to a strict colour and modular branding guidelines which was an enjoyable problem.

monthly update

Below are some posts of some of the work I have been up to over the last month. There will be a new website and blog coming soon but in the meantime I plan on just posting work up at the end/start of  every month. so have a good febraury and more soon.

The Royal London Hospital

Recently finished working on some artwork created with Spencer Wilson for the  The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. The work was commissioned by Vital Arts and the work was for the Childrens out patients area.
The idea was that on different walls  there would be parts of the same parade all heading to the main waiting areas. The characters would all be carrying letter forms that would come together to form a positive piece of typography in the waiting area.
Because of the nature of the hospital, how it is used etc the wallpaper is coated. The job was beautifully printed and installed by Omni. Better photos of the whole space will  be taken soon.

The Big Egg Hunt

I was asked by the charity Action for Children to paint an egg for this years Big Egg Hunt.
my Idea was a simple one to  cover the egg in explorers, looking , hunting for something.
The use of one colour, blue against the white was influenced by its use throughout history in the decorative arts from around the world.  The design also had to work technically. The egg will be place outside later this year in a UK city and therefore will be covered in a lacquer. This meant my usual choice of mediums, paper pencil where not suitable. It was a good exercise in translating my work onto an object via paint, whilst trying to keep in as crude and true to the edges made when I cut paper.
More on this project once the event launches around easter.

Food and Wine

Illustration for Food and Wine magazine. The article was about someone eating only italian food for 5 days straight in NewYork. My initial rough wasn't a strong concept but I just wanted to try and get the joy that was in the writing across- being surrounded by and enjoying all  the food that was on offer... 
After the feedback- something more conceptual was needed.The second drawing was trying to get the 5 day part in but felt very clunky and forced , hanging onto a drawing i liked but didn't work......

so this was abandoned for the simple , bold approach. My idea of a face made from pasta felt  like a bad joke,like  a pasta image when you are at play school, maybe not one of my better ideas but once rendered  it, it started to workout ok ......

But for the final  image using typography /spaghetti /days of the week was used.
This is pretty far out of my remit of work / visual language, but its always interesting where commissions take you
