Future Human?

This little chap was created for an article in the The Chronicle Review called Where Are Humans Headed? by Michael Ruse, an amusing review of a book called Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution. I based the character on this passage 'Will we have massive brains, dwindling little bodies, and highly functional genitalia?'. Make of that what you will. You can see the illo on the site here with related works.

Sounds Of The City

Chuffed to announce my entry for this year's AOI Prize for Illustration competition was selected amongst the top 100 to be exhibited this week at the London Transport Museum. The theme was Sounds Of The City and I went with a collage of a busy central London night scene filled with cacophonous bright hot noise shapes. The exhibition looks to be a good one and is open to the public from this Friday May 19th until 3rd September.

WIA 2017 Shortlist

I'm happy as a plate of punch pie to be shortlisted for this year's World Illustration Awards 2017 through the AOI. I'm in the Advertising category for this poster illustration to promote Second Hand Sundays regular DJ slot 'Adventures in a Land of Ever-changing Wax Grooves' at south London's The Ivy House last year. Looking forward to the exhibition at Somerset House in August where the award winners will be announced. Prints are available from the shop here.

A.I. Law

Here's a cover illustration for Canadian Lawyer mag looking at the impact of artificial intelligence on the legal profession. Not so much robots in wigs, unfortunately, more algorithms and analysis of legal data. See it on the site here.

In The Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia

I was recently commissioned to create a poster design to sell to the public at this year's Blue Ridge Marathon in Virginia, USA. It's a spectacular, but gruelling, challenge that takes the runners up through the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. The design had to capture a sense of elevation and movement towards the iconic Star of Roanoke,  the world's largest freestanding illuminated man-made star, as well as a flavour of the community spirit around the event. You can read a little more about it here on the promoter's blog and see it on my site over here.
