The Boppers - (Inspired by the 80’s movie cult classic The Warriors)
Last night saw the opening of a new show curated by New Rule Collective at Londons 5th Base Gallery. A brilliant concept which sees 22 different artists given a specific gang from within the film and making a piece of work based on them.
I was given the smooth talking slick ricks known as ‘The Boppers’ and wanted to focus my piece around gang interaction whilst using a retro game-like aesthetic… it was good fun!
The show is on from 11th-17th April, so if you’re around Brick Lane area, go check it out!
You can now buy this print online at a very reasonable price over on their site HERE!

International New York times
Here’s an illustration based on Britain’s floods for the NYT International. It was nice to work on this illustration from concept to completion in one day yesterday and then to see it go up online today!
There’s something satisfying about completing something so quickly, that you don’t have chance to ponder or worry about the final outcome, you just get stuck in. You can see the full article here

Half Plus Seven - Book Cover
This is the first ever book cover I’ve designed for Dan Tyte’s first novel ‘Half Plus Seven’ which tells the tale of a PR agent named Bill who has an unhealthy appetite for cigarettes and booze but aims to turn over a new leaf and change his life around.
I designed the entire book jacket which wraps around the novel but I’ll be sure to upload this at a later date when the book is released.
You can now pre-order the book from Parthian books here if your interested.
U of T Magazine
Earlier this month I worked on this spot illustration for the University of Toronto Magazine for an article about scientists tracking diseases in teal time.
Mark Making - Experiment
I produced a minimal piece of work for a client a couple of months back which consisted of some simple mark making. This got me thinking and I’ve started playing around with shape and colour aside from my more figurative work.
I’ve been playing around with a more graphic approach to some of my drawings which has been interesting. Stripping things back a little and using simple bold line, however this won’t last very long as I can’t stay away from using texture and colour for too long.
