Commence Au Festival!

I recently illustrated the classical music Festival Guide 2019 for BBC Music magazine. The guide covers a number of UK and international festivals across the globe so a colourful burst of a collage was required to give a flavour of all that was on offer. Bit of a throwback to my Promming days! You can see this and related work on the site here.

Here's some personal work for a great online project called MAN-AGE that aims to publish creative stories and artwork that deal with male mental health struggles in an attempt to 'challenge unnecessary societal pressures, create a community of voices and combat isolation'. I found this a challenge at the outset as I’m quite a private person so decided to tackle the general themes of masculinity and mental health head on rather than get overly personal. Once I took that approach I couldn't be stopped and ended up creating four illustrations and a couple of animations using the man-age colour palette. The first 3D animation and accompanying artwork is called 'Fragmentation' and is an abstract take on a depressive episode. The third and fourth artwork, 'Bust' and 'Mars Attacks' deal with notions of broken masculinity and associated anxieties. The site is full of really interesting writing, photography and illustration and well worth a look at man-age.com. You can also see the work on the site with related work here.
