QEOP Summer

Hot on the heels of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park launch artwork comes the Summer campaign. Working with Premm Design again we developed the original style and composition further and introduced a warmer yellow/orange to the brand palette. The brief was to emphasise the family fun appeal and to entice the general public to visit the great new space that it has become. Once again the illustration had to work across multiple print formats and moving billboards, for which I also created the animation, and will be popping up all over London town anytime now. You can see all the QEOP work so far on the site here.

ABRSM Medley

Here's a little catch-up on recent illustrations for the ABSRM music exam book cover series. A new Piano Exam Pieces illustration was commissioned for the 2015 & 2016 Syllabus along with a single cover for the Guitar, Harp, Harpsichord, Organ & Percussion. The Clarinet gets two covers for Sight Reading and Scales & Arpeggios. Great art direction as usual by Kate Benjamin. See further work for ABRSM on the site here.

Tyranny On Mars

It's time for the latest shot of sci-fi speculation for BBC Focus' Into The Future column. This month's article looked at the idea of extraterrestrial liberty and freedom beyond the Earth. Explored scenarios included human rights issues on Martian colonies and the possibility of Total Recall-esque tyrannical uprisings.

3 x 3 Show Success

Very pleased to see that a couple of my entries in this year's 3 x 3 illustration shows were successful. Claude Debussy's Life In Miniature animation picked up a Merit in the Professional Show and my cover illustration for Sophia Mcdougall's Mars Evacuees received an Honorable Mention in the Picture Book Show.

School Of Giving

I'm back at the blogface after a bit of a busy period with a recent editorial illo for Cincinnati Magazine. It's for an article called School Of Giving about charitable deeds and schemes set up by various schools across the state. I enjoyed using a simpler style with a limited palette for this one. You can see it with similar work on the site here.
