Designed and illustrated the artwork for PicaPica's first EP, available on CD and 10" from Rough Trade Records.
The band wanted something fresh and modernist, to reflect the vibes and vocals of this exciting new project from Samantha Whates and Josienne Clarke with instrumental backing and production from Adam Beattie and Sonny Johns.
More details about the band and their music with a promo video directed by Samantha can be found here: rtrecs.co/PicaPica
E Mare Libertas
A story of alienation and being lost at sea, inspired by the decaying Maunsell Forts of the Thames Estuary.
I was lucky to have a feature about the comic in the third issue of Elsewhere, a journal about place I adore.
This is an excerpt from a 12 page 4 colour lithoprinted mini comic. Please contact me if you’d like to buy one.
Print for a group show about Tessellation based on Giants Causeway in County Antrim, which you can read more about this geological wonder here.
Available as a 2 colour Giclée print. Look below to see how nice they look on your wall!
Inspired by a walk along the Dorset coast, available as a 2 colour A3 print.
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.
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: a ludicrously idealised rural idyll teetering over the abyss.
In perfect irony its available as a French giclée on German paper.
Samantha Whates + Chaps Choir
One Sunday Samantha Whates invited me along to draw her recording a charity single in collaboration with Chaps Choir, in the Union Chapel, empty save for them and the band!
I was blown away; what a privilege to be sat in the pews to witness these live recordings, which you can see here:
Samantha and Chaps Choir subsequently invited me to design and illustrate the resulting double A side 7” single, so its a real honour to be part of this project to raise money for the mens charity CALM
The single, and matching tote is available for purchase here
