This is part of a wordless narrative strip I completed a while ago for a project based on folktales but only got around to scanning now. The story is a Russian folktale about a girl who gets kidnapped by a bear and outwits him to escape. The piece itself was intended as a wall chart and visual tool for storytellers.

Some images from a new MA project. The brief was to take an old text and create images which would modernise it/make it relevant to today's audience. I chose the Good Wife's Guide, a manual written by an old Parisian Man for his fifteen year old bride in the fourteenth century providing household tips and instructions on how to be a dutiful little woman. So I have turned the idea on it's head, the author is now an ancient billionaire and his bride is a gold-digging trophy wife who is trying desperately to off him and get her hands on his money. Fun times.

Some spot images for a Canadian Parenting magazine to accompany articles on raising your kids properly. Each image represents a different age group and a situation where what is perceived as 'bad parenting' may actually be the best solution. I always find it difficult to draw age appropriate kids, I tend to make them look much older than they are supposed to but have discovered it has a lot to do with how chubby you draw them!

A triptych of images created for Amelia's Magazine. These accompany an article concerning 'Dirty Oil' a new documentary about the oil sands in Alberta, Canada and the detrimental effect they are having on the environment. I wanted the images to look kinda dirty too, hence the grey colour scheme and rough textures!

As part of one of our MA modules we were required to give a presentation on ourselves and our work (eep!). Each presentation had to be 20 slides long, each shown for 20 seconds. These are a few images I created for slides to show where I'm from, the things I like and what kind of materials I use!

In a flurry of nostalgia I came across the journals I kept when visiting Australia for a three month stint in 2008, and for the sake of posterity I have scanned a few pages! I cringe a little when I look at any of my drawings older than eight months, but they're not that bad I guess. More can be found on my Flickr page.
