A Grub's Tale
Illustrations for Springboard Stories' e-book and magazine: "the story of a nervous little creature who grows from grub to caterpillar to lunar moth. Along the way our comical character meets some unusual creatures, and learns to love himself for his own special qualities."
Miss Wacky's Day Out
Illustrations for another Springboard Stories book and magazine: "Everyone wants to be in Miss Wacky’s class – she is a-ma-ZING! She’s really good at surprises. She does somersaults and conjuring tricks. She always has something up her sleeve. But absolutely no one expected the biggest and most amazing surprise of all..."
Hailing from the Steel City, The Inhuman League are Sheffield’s first and only male roller derby team. Forming in 2011, The Inhuman League are veterans of the game having featured in 2 European Championships, home and away internationals, and countless bouts on home soil. I was asked to design their logo, and since then I have produced several posters and promotional materials for them, in a range of styles.
Sports Day on Mount Olympus
Illustrations for another Springboard Stories book and magazine: "Alexia is the only normal kid in a school for gods. What hope does she have on sports day? What with Hermes whose feet barely touch the ground and Artemis with her golden bow – not to mention Apollo, Hera and Zeus – she has no chance. Or has she?"
The Lambton Worm
"Young Lambton loved a spot of fishing but when he cast his line into the lake, he wasn’t expecting his catch to be a fat, slime-strung, squirming worm. And that was just the very beginning of his problems...." I was delighted to be asked to work on this re-telling of the Lambton Worm myth, as it was one of my favourite stories as a child, in the Usborne book 'Dragons, Giants, and Witches'. Though it was desperately hard not to imitate the brilliant Stephen Cartwright artwork!
Weekly Geek Speak
Logo work and illustrations from a long-running collaboration with 'Weekly Geek Speak': a weekly podcast, talking film, games, TV, comics, and so much more. I've been producing artwork for each podcast on a fairly regular basis, and, more recently, for their 'Movies In The Pub' night, where they screen 'good bad' films each month. The podcast pictures are often great fun to do, often featuring a bizarre set of criteria that only makes sense once I finally hear the podcast!
