Skwigly Online Magazine Advent Calendar

Here is an illustration I did for Skwigly Online Magazine's annual advent calendar.
If you have never heard of it and you have an interest in illustration or animation you should check it out. Great articles and podcasts and industry news! 
You can see my picture in situ here!

The illustration was inspired by news stories of dodgy, badly put together Santa's grottos that pop up every Christmas around the UK - to the disappointment of many children!

TGI Fridays

Here are a couple of illustration from a series of 5 I did for an online TGI Fridays campaign called '100 cocktails as 100 works of art' with Telegraph Hill. It was quite a free brief, I chose a cocktail from a long list and had to come up with a visual to illustrate its characteristics.

This one has been made into a poster to put on the Ladie's loo doors! Will try and smuggle into the loos and get a picture soon!

The Liver Song

A little animation made with Upstart Thunder - she did the animation, I did the designs.
The short features a dancing liver to the voice of the late Graham Chapman who tells us why livers are so important. 
Made for 'A Liar's Autobiography Animate Chapman Competition'.  Enjoy!

Bristol Old Vic Poster

A poster I designed for a children's play at the Bristol Old Vic. It got made into flyers, leaflets and program pages!
The original illustration had a purple background (see below) but they decided to change it to a lighter blue to tie into the Christmas period - I think it works nicely!
