My work

Illustration  -  Hand Lettering  -  Surface Pattern

As well as illustrating for print publications, I also create art for greetings cards, gift wrap, wall art, stationery, gifts and home decor. I have a portfolio of hundreds of illustrations, hand lettering in a variety of styles, placements and repeat patterns available to license or buy. Below is just a small selection (click on the images to enlarge). If you'd like to see a gallery of designs that might fit your project, please do contact me with some info about what you need and I'll get right back to you. I also work on commission.


SEE A FULL Portfolio of NEW WORK to LICENSE at Surtex, May 2017

I'm heading back to Surtex this May for the second time with a brand new portfolio of work. If you're looking for a creative collaborator to work with you to make great products, why not make an appointment to meet at the show? I'd love to show you my work and chat about how we could work together. You can find me in Booth #2723 from May 21-23, exhibiting with my colleagues from the Four Corners Art Collective.

Book & Editorial Illustration

In 2015 I illustrated a weekly column for The Guardian that ran for eight months. In 2016 I illustrated The Science of Everyday Life by Marty Jopson, published by Michael O'Mara Books. I am currently developing illustrations for children's books. If you would like to commission me to illustrate for your publication, please do get in touch.
