The curator of 'Museum of memory', Kate McStraw, commissioned me to put together a selection of railway related illustrations for promotion and props, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Somerset and Dorset railway line closure.
I had already worked with Tina Smith on a handful of projects for Pretty Nostalgic Magazine & Ernest Journal.
This time I was working with Tina & Dan on a new magazine (yet to be released) by Immediate Media. The topic was posh picnics & I was commission to illustrate 6 culinary pieces.
I have been commissioned by Ernest Journal for a range of editorial illustrations over the last 3 years. The subjects I covered ranged from everyday objects & an array of beverages to well known architecture & map design.
Over the last few years I have worked alongside Andrew Sutton with one of his books for young adults & a range of his poems & short stories.
During the winter of 2013, the writers in residence at the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow, commissioned me to provide them with illustrations for their anthology. The anthology was made up of a series of short stories inspired by the exhibitions in the Hunterian Museum at that time. I produced 3 illustrations for the inside. Then experimented with a couple of designs for the front and back cover.
Commissioned by Pretty Nostalgic Magazine to produce 8 swimsuit illustrations, a background and title page for a 3 page spread on the swimsuit evolution for their 8th issue.
I was commissioned by Another escape magazine with illustrations since it first started in 2011. In its development years my first couple of contributions were based around the theme of the issue. However since its launch, I was commissioned to illustrate for an article on an up and coming chef in the 1st volume and in the 2nd issue I created a detailed botanical drawing of a coffee plant.
