My first editorial illustration

Here is my first editorial that was in the Business Reporter supplement in the Sunday Telegraph.

This was good fun to do, especially the initial process of coming up with a fun idea for this rather dry subject. I definitely need to refine my editorial style of work though. I automatically started to do children's picture book type work which isn't really appropriate for a business supplement editorial. All good practice though.

Bear in mind

The old idiom, bear in mind. It just seems funny to me.

Fashion Illustrations

Have been doing some commissioned work for fashion designer and good friend Edward Lord.

Had alot of fun doing these, learnt alot too. It was nice to work abit more spontaneously and not fussing over ever little detail. Definitely something I'll keep in mind for future work.

Dave's Gift

King Arthur

Keeping with the whole drawing for a younger audience theme I did this book cover. Was looking through my work and noticed that I'll usual draw a character but never really develop much of a background behind. Doing these sort of book covers will help me in that aspect of my work I hope.
