‘I enjoy illustrating narratives and characters, taking influences from cinema, old photos, music and sports. I often look at the work of other illustrators and artists for inspiration too. My process consists of several rounds of thumbnails and roughs. I then draw my images in pencil on cartridge paper, scan it in and add colour in Photoshop.

Today I’m drawing lot’s of farm animals. For a project I’ve been working on with a local fabric company, who plan on using them as cushion designs. I’ve also been working on a personal project of mine, a wordless picture book set in 1920s America. About an old man who loves to build ships in bottles. However struggles to source new bottles when prohibition is introduced.’
