The Bulk of my work is made up of editorial Illustration with clients ranging from small press to national newspapers. I use size play and metaphor to construct a narrative without complicating an image.

Rough draft idea for the Bezos Piece
Looked too much like an advert for Amazon
I use pattern in many of my illustrations. It’s such a fun way to play with an image, however simple and turn it into something wonderful.
I would receive feedback on roughs like “I would LOVE this as a shirt” and I have to agree. Textile design is something I’m looking to do more of in future.
Lifestyle and Commercial
Fantastic Company based in Dublin. Had the honour of illustrating wheelchair covers for them!
Usually where I develop and experiment with new techniques and ideas. And also where I draw lots of ladders.
The Skinny Magazine is a monthly paper out of Edinburgh, I have been a regular contributor for over 2 years. Their articles are always fun and allow me to get quite silly as a result.
I had the pleasure of illustrating 12 essays for Polygon.com. I had never done editorial illustrations for a video games media platform before, the project allowed me to explore images in ways that not only had to be accessible to a casual observer of the content but also to the more well versed consumer. All the while maintaining a tone and style I would use for any other news publication.
I had a lot of fun with these, big thanks to Chris Sullentrop and Chris Plante for having me on this.
