So happy to be able to share with you a project with fun at its heart.
Funny Face! written by Jacky Bahbout and illustrated by me is published today by Thames & Hudson.
Designed by Michael Lenz at Draught Associates - the book includes 64 pages of activities for children. Navigate through the die cuts and page folds to reveal a magnitude of visual gags and of course, funny faces.
More photos to come - but for now, have yourself a fun Monday :-)
It’s been a 2 year wait to see this face! All can be revealed Monday 20th Oct xx
A little spot illustration for The Simple Things October issue.
It accompanied a short story by Zoe McDonald, “The Comfort Blanket” - about the memories of a recently deceased relative tied up in a patchwork quilt.
Octobers illustration for Asda Magazine “The Big Debate” - this month it’s all about my second favourite thing - food! How to keep everyone happy at meal times.
I was delighted to be commissioned to create 40 illustrations to be part of a design toolkit for Herman Miller. The online kit will enable the furniture manufacturer to collaborate with it’s clients to better understand their work space requirements when making new people centred environments.
The project is part of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design research at the RCA that followed on from two years of research by architect Benjamin Koslowski and designed by Lottie Crumbleholme.
I illustrated several spot illustrations and larger detailed case studies with before and after floor plans showing their potential to change.
It was exhibited as part of the London Design Festival 2014 in the Breaking Through exhibition at the Dyson Building, The Royal College of Art.

Nordic biannual journal Oak commissioned me to create five illustrated pages for their second issue.
This was a dream brief - to draw five iconic Nordic designers, one of their designs and a piece of their inspiration. I love Josef Frank’s mantra ” the home does not have to be planned out in detail, just put together by pieces its inhabitants love.”
Thanks to AD Laura Terp Hansen
The Simple Things Magazine commissioned me to create two spot illustrations for their short story feature “The Bees”.
I got a real buzz out of it. (sorry)
Asda Magazine have redesigned their back page and I’m very happy to have illustrated it.
The new layout features two sides of an argument. Septembers issue asked if kids and supermarkets mix…
I’ve popped a couple of new projects up on the site this afternoon for PaddingtonNow - Business Improvement District, commissioned by the lovely chaps at Tourist. Thanks Rob!
