Susan's Story

Here's a great commission I worked on  last year for Torre Lazur McCann that's just been published. It's an illustrated patient healthcare book called Susan's Story about identifying and coping with schizoaffective disorder. Each page visualises a step on the path from symptoms to diagnosis and treatment and is presented in a colourful hardback format.

The Lakes

Managed to escape the swirling smokes of 'Landan' over Easter and took my first trip to the Lake District for a spot of glamping. That's camping with mod cons, a proper roof, fire-pit and, if you're lucky, a glitter ball. We stayed at a lovely spot called Scales Plantation in our very own shepherd hut and journeyed around the gorgeous Lakes area for strolls in Keswick and Buttermere whilst dodging some serious raindrops. Managed to squeeze in a roaring fire and barbecue though so all was right with the world.

Bum Note

Sometimes a job doesn't quite make it all the way to the finishing line for one reason or anther. Here's an illustration that was approved and went to a final stage before an overhaul in organisation client-side scuppered the whole campaign. Shame, as I was pleased with the work on this one. The brief was to create a colourful image about inspiration in making contemporary music. Cue the violins.
