Electric Vehicle Architecture

The latest illustration commission for Mercedes-Benz Next magazine required a touch of animation to bring to life an article on E-mobility and vehicle architecture. After getting the illustration signed-off I created a short After Effects movie loop then reduced it further to a small gif to sit on comfortably on a website. You can see both the basic gif and the more developed vimeo clip animation above.


Here's a cover and spot illustrations for Independent Banker Magazine on the future of banking and your own personal robo-advisor to deal with your hard cash. It was a fun commission coming up with a friendly robot figure, a sort of amalgam of current robo tech and the stolen eyes of V.I.N.C.E.N.T. from Disney's Black Hole movie. You can see the work on the site here with previous and related work for IB Mag.

Life After Man

Here are the latest illustrations for the current issue of BBC Focus for the cover and a spread on the theme of Life After Man. The brief was to depict scenes of London reclaimed by nature after some unspecified extinction event befalls humanity. Good news for deers at least. This issue came with two different cover designs to see if the readership fancied a design overhaul, I personally prefer the cleaner existing Focus layout but then I would as it shows off the illustration more.
