American Illustration 36 this year with my Pluripotency cover illustration for Nature Journal and will appear in the annual award book. After many years of entering the competition it's the first time I've made it in to the book, getting as far as the online Archive collection a few times, so proper chuffed. You can see the work on the site here.

BBC Focus. The brief seemed a little daunting at first but having the ol' trusty blackhole as a central feature helped me to work up some timely ideas around it. You can see the four rough initial cover proposals above, including a couple of landscape based ideas featuring mountains and sand (as if inside a huge hourglass). Ultimately, the blackhole sundial illustration was the image everyone gravitated to for the cover with the hourglass being chosen for the inside spread.
