Client: Kult 3D / Singapore
Publication/Event: Kult Magazine Issue 11 / Exhibition ‘Book Covers’ theme

“We asked over 50 designers, artists, illustrators and photographers to choose a book which has influenced them and shaped who they are today. They have chosen books to bring them back to the front of our minds.”

I Re-imagined – Dr Slump Vol 01 – ‘The Birth of Arale’s book cover, for Kult Studio / Gallery’s ‘Book’ themed magazine and exhibition. I wanted to pay homage to one of the greatest mangakas, Akira Toriyama whose work I grew up with. The imagination, story-telling and worlds created by Toriyama, ignited my love for illustration and inspired me to create my own worlds and characters.

‘Eye Candy Festival took place during October 2012 in Birmingham’s Southside, showcasing illustration, street art & design through an exciting program of talks & workshops.

Exhibition: B.O.T.S | Tea Time
Product: Pork Chop T-shirt

This T-shirt design was created for the ‘Brothers of the Stripe‘ exhibition – Tea Time | Manchester. Soup Kitchen. I decided to create a body of work which was based on this topic of food, focusing on the idea of consumption – meat and animals – This in turn developed in to something called the ‘Pork Pirates’ (or Pork Pie-rates)…Using my isometric style, this poor little isometric ‘Pork Chop’ pig was dissected and now available for purchase.

Collective: Brothers of the Stripe
Project: Tea Time exhibition

A collection of work created for the Brothers of the Stripe exhibition – Tea Time | Manchester. Soup Kitchen (an exhibition exploring the concept of Tea Time through a variety of illustrative styles and techniques). I decided to create a body of work which was based on this topic of food, focusing on the idea of consumption – meat and animals – This in turn developed in to something called the ‘Pork Pirates’ (or Pork Pie-rates) …and due to my macbook passing away half-way through the project, it forced me or allowed me to experiment with a more diverse range of mediums – including stencils and spray paints and photography – which is the resulting A5 print packs – each print digitally printed with added hand finished details.
