Yorks Art Exhibition Flyer!

I took a typographical approach to this poster to show the eclectic nature of the works shared across the walls of Yorks. I also toned down the black logo to a softer grey and this ended up deciding my colour scheme or grey and yellow.

'To Forgive' Illustration

Here is my completed illustration for a zine project in homage to Smashing Pumpkins. I chose to illustrate an image based on the song To Forgive and I have been wanting to try out some pen illustration with a vintage, art nouveau feel.

Mia portrait completed

Pencil and charcoal portrait of a model named Mia. I have only had a couple of attempts at photorealism and I have a lot to work on, improving contrast, achieving full photo-realistic hair. I am really happy with elements in the face though, freckles, eyes and skin all look solid enough!

#1 update photo-realistic portrait

Here is the beginning of a portrait I am producing as a kind of practice for a self portrait I will begin soon, for the Sky Arts Portrait of the Year competition. I haven't attempted photo-realism since my foundation course seven years ago, I'm hoping my eye for detail has remained sharp since then, looking promising so far...

Fashion Illustration

Here is the beginning of a project I will be finalising in the coming weeks. A project proposed to me by flourishing photographer Jenni Byron, I will base my ideas on her work and develop the source imagery into a fashion illustration. Above is a taster!

Laura Marling 'The Beast' illustration

Here is my entry for the Laura Marling vinyl design competition! The piece of text that accompanies it:

My vision portrays Marling metaphorically dancing with the devil. She is immersed, overwhelmed, burdened under its weight, and in doing so has become 'The Beast'.
The depiction of the beast is influenced by Native American headdress along with the unforgiving, visceral beasts of nature which have now become her crown.

I Am My Hair tattoo

Here is the coloured and polished final version of the tattoo I have illustrated. Watch this space for future updates when it is transferred into the real thing!

Moon Princess

This week, along with promoting the Laura Marling illustration and awaiting results of the Stoker competition, I will be producing the final illustrations for Moon Princess, referring to the design I have digitally produced.
This is a project I have been working on for a theatre. It is a production based on the story by Fumiko Miyachi and will predominantly depict the Princess lush with Japanese licks.


Laura Marling teaser

Quickly following up the Stoker competition I have just completed my 2nd competition entry of 2013, a Secret 7" design for Laura Marling's The Beast. This is only a window into the illustration which will be fully revealed very soon! 

As a winner of the Florence + the Machine Secret 7" competition and Ladyhawke last year, I would love to complete the trilogy of awesome artists that I have produced record sleeves for!

New fashion illustration on the way

Following Geisha Girl who is nearly complete, this is my next fashion piece! There will be a crown of roses on her head, with a ton of detail in some parts and fairly minimal in others to let the denser areas breathe

Amelia

This is the very first sketch of a big new project I shall be working on in the next 6 months- year. I roughed this 5 minute scribble just to get into paper what Amelia will look like; inquisitive, ambitious, and ready for an adventure. 
The character was written by an author I will be working alongside for this project to bring her to life, I have been given the creative freedom to craft her exactly how I imagine. This is a sneak peek.
