Shy and the Fight poster

The folks at Popty Ping records asked me to design them a gig poster for their band 'Shy and the Fight'.
They wanted the whole band in there - there's 7 of them!
So I done them like this.
I kinda dig it.

You should go if you're able! :)

Cash for your Community ad campaign

Hey lovely people,

Here is a national in-paper ad campaign that some of my illustrations have been used in. My bits are the houses, the cut out people and the step-by-step illustrations. Although hopefully you guys will be able to recognise my style anyway by now! :)

I collaborated with graphic designer Paul Banks and copywriter Louise Jenkins to create these really cool-looking ads for Northcliffe Media.

It's a lovely promotion too, which aims to give money to community groups in whatever area they run in. Hope you like 'em :)

Press: Leicester Mercury 'Picture This' article

Hey guys,

Thought I'd share this really lovely article that the folk at the Leicester Mercury wrote about my exhibition :)
