Alan Turing

Here's a recent commission that was a joy to work on, a cover and spot illustrations for the current issue of Nature magazine. It's for a feature on Alan Turing reappraising the undervalued and criminally mistreated godfather of artificial intelligence and computer science a 100 years on from his birth.

Jane's Addiction

Latest drawing for A Circus Mind featuring a young Perry Farrell from Jane's Addiction and an imagined depiction of the titular drug abuser and former roommate of his that lent the band their name.

Beam Mich Hoch, Scotty!

Here's a nice job for German magazine Gaswinner, a cover and three spread illustrations for a feature on future land, sea and air transport concepts. They range from greener airfuel and wind-assisted cargo ships to nifty looking streamlined trucks. The cover required a Star Trek-ian teleporter vibe and was printed as a lenticular image so that the vehicles vanish when you tilt the magazine. Holo-tastic!

To Affinity And Beyond

Here's a cover illustration I completed at the tail end of last year for the health focused @Affinity Magazine in the States. The illustration is made up of visual references to the articles contained within their Glance at 2012 issue. Right now though the weekend is where it's @, have a good one.

Memories Out Now

The Memories book project in aid of Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres has been published and is on sale over at their site, with all proceeds going to Maggie's. I contributed this illustration based on the tale of cancer survivor, Wendy Nichols, a while back. It's a real pleasure to see it so lavishly reproduced in a book that's bursting with lovely work from a great roster of artists and for such a good cause. Well worth picking up a copy.
