Pentagram recently commissioned me to illustrate an article for the last issue of Howard Hughes Medical Bulletin. It was great fun researching stickleback fish in their beautiful habitats in Vancouver Island, below is a researcher about to get into action.
Several new illustrations for Clerkenwell Post and Bicycle Times below.
Illustrations for Freemen’s World Magazine – a German outdoor magazine. Accompanying an essay about a reporter exhausted from a reportage on human trafficking in North Africa, decides to take a flight to the Outer Hebrides to spend some time travelling alone, and immersing in nature.
Thanks to AD Frank Dietz for this piece.
New illustration for Bicycle Times Magazine. ‘Ride through anything’ by Adam Perry. The article talks about pushing yourself through any obstacles and learning through the process. Art directed by the wonderful Stephen Hayles.
German design magazine Novum invited me to feature in their Illustration special issue, here it is! Thanks to Bettina Schulz for the Q&A session.
Also, here’s that Communication Arts feature I had mentioned earlier.
I really enjoyed illustrating Frederic Raphael’s short story, A British Subject. Set in a gentleman’s club (not the sexual kind) it follows a few characters stories over a game of bridge and a whisky sour. Below are my rough ideas, and the final I went for.
For the RA Magazine’s debate section. The question featured in this issue was: Should art be more political? The AD wanted the illustration response to remain impartial to either side, so what better than a ballot box! Thanks to Tom Pollard from Design by St.
