I recently designed the artwork for PicaPica's first EP, available on CD and 10" from Rough Trade Records.
I tried to do something fresh and modernist, forgoing my regular inky outlines to reflect the vibes and vocals of this exciting new project from Samantha Whates and Josienne Clarke with instrumental backing from Adam Beattie and Sonny Johns.
More details about the band and their music with a promo video directed by Samantha here: rtrecs.co/PicaPica
E Mare Libertas
Inspired by the Maunsell Forts off the Thames Estuary in Kent, here is a sample of my risoprinted comic, E Mare Libertas.
I was lucky to have a feature about the comic in the third issue of Elsewhere, a journal about place I really love.
Print for a group show about Tessellation based on Giants Causeway in County Antrim, which you can read more about this geological wonder here.

Inspired by a walk along the Dorset coast, available as a 2 colour A3 print.
This is England
Print for a group show by Mr Gresty on the titular theme. In light of our bizarre Brexit escapades since, this piece now feels like a tragic prophecy.
In keeping with the tone its available as a giclée on German paper.
Inspired by a talk at Caught By The River by the author Philip Hoare, about his love affair with the whale and subsequent book Leviathan. Prints available in 2 colour with gold foil.
Panel from a forthcoming comic inspired by the Stevenson lighthouse building dynasty. I've a tendency to redraw and redraw and completely overwork my drawings, until all the joy and spontaneity has been removed. This comic and this drawing is an exercise in realising that the rough is very often the final.
