KOTKI DWA "Staycations" print









Hello again,

Told you I was having to play catch-up, blog-a-day eh!

Here is a print I made for the recent Kotki Dwa album launch at YCN. 
The album is called "Staycations" which was also the theme for the show.
So I thought what better way to illustrate the idea of "holidaying at home" than with making a
jungle den in your own room.

Cacti and Spider plants are so cool to draw!

NIKE FLYNIT MAP!

















Hi All, 

Finally I can unveil the map that me and Alice Moloney art directed at the recent Nike workshops. 
Its is incredible see it up and see it on this scale (its 48 sheet billboard so thats massive 240"x120"), I've never had anything I've made or had a hand in making at this size before, plus we 
had been working on digitalising it for printing on 13'' laptops, so to go from that to a billboard was quite a eye opener and really exciting (as well as nerve racking). But really happy with how its turn out! 
If you live in London and want to see it up-close you can find it on Gillet Street in Dalston. 

Thanks again for everyone that was involved in making the map and for Nike and INT for getting me involved.

IDEAS ILLUSTRATED!





























Hello all!

Hope you had a enjoyable weekend!

I was recently lucky enough to be asked to contribute to YCN's own in-house publication Ideas Illustrated. The article was about the various current retail trends of which I had no-idea about, until now! but all were great fun to imagine and draw. The article was also very copy heavy, so I took the chance to use these nooks and crannies between the text to my advantage - with some new and exciting results. Such as the re-commerce section (the last spread in the post), which Is the first time I've used text as a graphic shape (in this case replacing an image of a briefcase or bag with a block of text).
It was great to work a little out of my comfort zone and it opened my eyes to another technique which I can develop and use in other projects.

If you would like a copy of the magazine you can get one direct from YCN's online shop HERE.
