I like to create silly ol’ drawings. Usually depicting themes from the natural world around us, with occasional illustrations that give you a peek at the world inside my head.
My illustrations are mostly representational and are based on imagery that I find aesthetically pleasing/subject matters that I am particularly fond of at a given time. I prefer to work using limited colour pallets, which usually are black and white, with an additional accent colour.
Depending on the brief, my work can take many forms. I do however prefer to work either with black and white, graphite pencils or using digital means.
Above all, I wish my work to be well-composed imagery, open to many interpretations, that you find pleasing to look at.
The Fruit Bowl - Risograph Prints
This series of a3 risograph prints was a spontaneous project, brought about in order to commemorate the friendships and bonds I have acquired over the years at uni. The stickers are inspired by and based on some of my classmates, who have supported me and my work. With this project, I hope to have captured the sense of unity and belonging that this remarkable group of artists has given me.
The Treehouse - D&AD x Disney
Visual Development and Concept Art for a brief set by Disney for New Blood Competition. These visuals would be but the first half of a longer animation that would encourage children to imagine their own princess worlds and play. ‘The Treehouse’ would act as a set-up for those imaginary worlds, and would also promote courage, curiosity, and the spirit of adventure in children.
Penguin Book Cover Design Awards
Book cover design for the Penguin Design Awards. The book is a diary that chronicles the ever-changing world through the eyes of Dara McAnulty. While simultaneously uncovering the hidden worlds within nature, that most people walk by without noticing.
"In Golden Light my Sorrow Bathes” - An Illustration for our first brief of 4th year, where we were tasked to come up with a six-word memoir and then in turn illustrate it, using analogue mediums.
The Primate Parade
This collection of primate portraits was a personal project, in which I looked to explore the grandiosity of various monkeys and primates. By cropping the illustrations into just a portrait view, I hoped to have achieved a more personal and intimate connection between the subject matter and the viewer, putting the focus entirely on the beauty of these creatures.
