Fol Chen





Illustrations created to accompany an interview with American Art rockers Fol Chen for Supersweet. The band members never reveal their faces so this had to be incorporated.These images are based on a story involving the band's arch nemesis John Shade, a picnic, and some poisoned sandwiches.

Anorak





My entry for Anorak magazine Winter cover competition. The image had to include the text
'The Happy Mag for Kids' and be fun!

Save Our Boxes! Part deux






Some promotional postcards made for the same project. Love a bitta Lionel.

Save Our Boxes!







Part of my graduate show project last year was an imaginary campaign to stop the removal of phoneboxes in Ireland and the UK named 'Save Our Boxes'. Here are two of the four posters designed for the campaign based around the idea of phoneboxes as cult iconography. The posters here reference Superman and Hitchcock's 'The Birds'.

Pops

I very rarely draw real people in real life because-
1. I feel creepy and voyeuristic

2. I hate people staring over my shoulder and asking 'what's that supposed to be'
but here's a portrait of my father sleeping on a recent FOUR HOUR ferry trip.
I'm resonably pleased with it. I doubt he is.

Supersweet












Illustrations for Supersweet for a pasta recipe provided by guest editors The Raveonettes losely based on their video for Aly walk with me. I'll post the link for the recipe once the page is up, tried it out as 'research' - it really is delish (and fit for a rockstar)!
