Secret 7" exhibition this year at Sonos Studios, London in aid of Amnesty International UK. My 7" record sleeve design was on show throughout April alongside some fantastic entries and was sold in a buying frenzy for charity yesterday. So, now that the secret's out here's my Superman flavoured illustration for Tame Impala's The Less I Know The Better. I've also posted here my other two submissions that didn't make the show for Max Richter's Dream 3 and John Lennon's Imagine. See the work on the site here.

Anna Goodson Illustration Agency is celebrating 20 years in the business this year. An anniversary themed coaster campaign featuring all of the agency's illustrators was recently created to mark the occasion. Here's mine, featuring an art traffic control tower and a sky-load of illustrators, if you will. Now, time to place a cuppa on it.

The Ivy House, in Nunhead, south-east London. The image sprouted out of the suggested idea of the groove in a record being a beautiful valley and I worked in the two intrepid dj/ramblers charting a musical course through it. The night starts this Sunday and details can be found at London Blues Night.

Into The Future by Stephen Baxter. First up is a look at how trees might grow extremely tall on alien worlds should there be weaker gravity. The future of cities was also contemplated with this imagining of a metropolis based on termite mounds with their natural ventilation. Finally, a look at how astronauts might be able to effectively treat themselves medically on long distance journeys with portable x-ray devices. You can see all the work for the column on the site here.

here, with more of an outer space feel so I whisked up some good ol' nebulae-face. I also animated it for the iPad edition which was great fun. You can see it and previous BBC Focus work on the site here.

Here's a cover illustration for a Nature publication on the tricky subject of Diagnostics Modelling, as the header suggests modelling the impact of improved diagnostics on infectious diseases. I had to try and craft a coherent visual combining modelling data, global health elements and people that might benefit from the research. You can also see it on the main site here along with other work for Nature.

Here's a selection of work from a really rewarding book project for UKTV. I was commissioned to illustrate the cover and 8 essays for the publication, called Tomorrow's People: Making Cultures For Creativity, promoting British creativity and launching at the 40th Edinburgh International Television Festival. It's edited by Zoe Clapp and some of the contributors featured here include Piv Bernth (DR's Head Of Drama - The Killing/The Bridge), John Kampfner (Director of CIF), Chris Chibnall (writer of Broadchurch), Dougal Wilson (music video director) and Sharon Horgan (writer of Catastrophe). All of the anecdotal essays offered plenty of inspiring and funny morsels to illustrate and once I'd settled on a style and palette the job was a joy to create in a relatively short turnaround time. You can see all the illustrations on the site here and even download a copy from UKTV here if you're in the mood for a read.

Into the Future column for BBC Focus magazine. Firstly, a look at the future of food production and how Martian colonists might grow and consume their own Spirulina. The second illustration is about how we might preserve animals on the verge of extinction and even bring some extinct creatures back, step forward the Woolly Mammoth. Lastly the future of medical technology is considered along with the prospect of entirely robotic, and empathic, surgeons. You can see the full library of Into the Future illustrations on the site here.
