Financial Crisis In Pictures

Here are a series of illustrations for The Economist's recent weekly Schools Brief breakdown of the financial crisis. I had to create each of these with very quick turnarounds and in two different formats, a tricky super-narrow landscape print version and a more forgiving rectangular online version. The copy was quite heavy on the technical financial jargon (deleveraging anyone?) so it was a fun challenge to come up with visual ways to represent the main thrust of each feature and keep a consistent look and feel. More Economist work on the main site here.

Doc Rocket

Here's a Rocketeer inspired cover illustration for Canada's The Medical Post looking at how doctors boost their income. Probably not by wearing rocket-propelled backpacks but what the hey. See more work for The Medical Post on my folio site here.

Quantum Questing

Here's my lastest illustration for Nature magazine on the tricky subject of quantum physics. The article looked at the latest attempts by a group of physicists to reinvent quantum theory and this seafaring image popped to mind recalling earlier expeditions into the unknown.


Doing a bit of blog catch-up today after a lengthy period of silencio. I've been busy working away on a new animation project amidst the regular illustration commissions so time has been scarce. Will report on all that soon. In the meantime here are a few pics from a recent weekend away in the Wye Valley, Herefordshire. My wife and I spent the last few days of Summer in a lovely 1950s Stirling caravan that went by the name of Elsie. Toured the local area visiting Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury, Hay-on-Wye and Symonds Yat by day and relaxed with Elsie, a stunning view and a cosy campfire by night.
