The legendary Brighton Source magazine got in touch with me about illustrating one of their last issue’s cover before famously going out of print. This was around the time British Sea Power, a local Brighton band, made a long-waited return from a hiatus, and the magazine wanted to honour it with a long story.
The brief was to create an illustration for the cover. I submitted two ideas and we ended up using one for the cover and another inside, which they used to break up the long article.
I have done a lot of photography for the Brighton Source magazine in the past, and still sometimes do, but it was even a bigger honour to have been given a chance to illustrate for them as well.
No words required.

This was an experiment into pattern design. Created purely out of vectors this illustration scales in more ways than one. Made to repeat seamlessly in any direction, this design could be made into anything – wallpaper, textiles, paintrollers, nightmares.
It’s graphic. It’s design. It’s Graphic. Design.

This is an ongoing series of commissioned family portraits. Goal is to capture all the small details that make every family unique and so interesting to try and draw. They always bring a smile on everybody’s face, if they are inside little moments and jokes.
Much more simplified version of my commissioned family portrait series. Everyone is having babies at a rate that makes it impossible to give each on of these drawings much time. The forms have been simplified and every detail is reduced to a simple geometric shape. The goal here was to capture as much detail as possible with the least amount of effort spent.
I try to draw every time I get a chance. This here are some random drawings I have done over the last few years.
