Cafe Ballad


I was asked by Illustrated Ape to create a two-page comic based on a song from a musical collaboration between Christian David and Noko entitled 'Torchsongs & Fire Hoses'. This will be published alongside 23 other artists' responses to the other songs. I was quite excited to be part of this, as Noko has been a member of one of my favourite bands, Magazine, since they reformed in 2009, but I'm not too familiar with the language of comics, so it was a little tough to get to grips with.
This is just a crop of the final piece, which I'll upload when it's published.

Cardiff Cycle Festival

As part of Cardiff Cycle Festival, myself and the talented Mary Anne Cooke are creating a hand-painted window display for The SHO Gallery and Shop. Here's a little preview of the work in progress which will be installed in the gallery ready for the 16th June opening. It's been fun to work on something without staring at a monitor for once.




We'll also be exhibiting work in a separate space, still to be announced. Here's a tiny look in the meantime.



Health Service Journal

Last month I was asked to illustrate the cover of Health Service Journal. The brief was pretty strict and the deadline was tight.




Chemistry & Industry

Here's a couple of photos of my work from a few months ago in context.
