Celebrating the best young creative talent in the UK.

I believe one of the most important skills for an illustrator is adaptability and I try to encourage this by challenging myself to add a new process or pattern to each piece of work I produce. This keeps my mind active and motivates me to search for new inspirations wherever I go. Influences on my working style include 60′s ads and posters, Egyptian sarcophagi and illuminated manuscripts. I love their striking and stylised figures and the use of bright colours and strong patterns, and this has informed the way I construct my own illustrations. Bright palettes, bold lines and layers of pattern and shadow are identifying characteristics of my work, although I also enjoy the simplicity of one colour line drawings.
