A series of pieces from various projects showcasing different media, styles and techniques. Although a small selection, these pieces are some of my most popular and my personal favourites.

Toxic Cavern Serpent (2017) Copic Marker. Created for inclusion in a comic, this monster makes it’s home deep in the caverns of earth. Although serpentine in appearance, this creature actually consists of two separate centipede like entities. The blue half preferring to live life on the ceiling of the cavern, whereas, the green belly however prefers the comfort of the acid baths around it. Deadly on their own, when threatened the two combine to form a symbiotic relationship, sharing the kill.

Kite Dragon (2017) Copic Marker. This creature was created for inclusion in a comic. The kite dragons are a visually diverse species, each with different patterns and colours, every one of them is unique, and sought after for their hides. Although they generally do not hunt humans, if one ventures into their feeding grounds, the sky becomes a flurry of colours as the dragons co-operate to relentlessly assault the intruder. Although not able to fly, it will climb to higher ground, using its tail as an anchor as it hovers in the wind. Once the updraft is strong enough, the kite dragon will loosen it’s grip and glide through the skies freely.

It’s Alive! (2016) Fineliner. This piece was a poster created for a Frankenstein film project. The brief required a traditional style with elements of modern horror and sci-fi. I chose a more manic feel for the piece as it encapsulates the real life horror of Dr. Frankenstein’s disturbing experimentations, using unmatched body parts from various cadavers.

Cramped (2016) Fineliner, Photoshop. Created as an album cover for a heavy metal band in the UK. The client wanted a Victorian art style resembling older medical journal illustrations. I included horror and sci-fi elements to truly show the dark themes of the album.

Awash (2015 Fineliner, Photoshop) This tattoo design was a commission that captured multiple tattoo styles. The client wanted elegant Japanese landscapes, day of the dead skulls, and a sketchy style. Although contrasting ideas, I enjoyed the challenge of linking the themes, as well as taking a different direction in my own illustrations.

Pixel Ghost (2014 Acrylic paint). Created as a tattoo design, the client wanted a mix of digital and ghosts, with a cute style. I like the vibrant colours alongside block contrasting tones.

Schism (2014 Fineliner) Created for inclusion in a a sci-fi comic. The client required an alien warrior creature that was In-tune with nature. I chose a style that showed sci-fi themes inspired by H.R.Giger, alongside a less mechanical feel through control over crystals to form it’s armour.

War of the Worlds- Inside the House (2013 Finerliner). One of two pieces for a illustration project capturing the literary world of H.G.Wells. The client gave me a lot of free reign with this project, asking simply for the pieces to have a unique style, that presented the fear and terror one would feel in a hostile alien invasion situation. I chose to produce a sense of reality being warped through curved lines and a stark contrast of tones.
