‘My work is influenced by all things 1950s,60s and 70s, including fashion, architecture, music, technology and of course art. I spent quite a while working in games but decided it wasn’t for me and started going fully freelance about 2 years ago when I was lucky enough to be accepted at Folio illustration agency here in London. Since then I have worked on many interesting projects including book covers, magazine articles, corporate animations, advertising campaigns and more.’

‘Currently I am working on a few interesting projects – a title sequence for a Chinese family film, a book for Disney based on one of their theme park attractions, a children’s educational app and potentially a line of vinyl toys based on a popular 80s movie. I also have some personal projects on the go including an animated music video based on the Gemini space missions, a kids book and an few ideas for comics/animated shows.’
