Serco Prize for Illustration 2012 Entry 'Brompton Road'

This is the first time I have entered the Serco Prize for Illustration in collaboration with London Transport Museum, this year's theme is Secret London.

This poster design is titled 'Brompton Road', named after the little known Underground station which was closed down in the mid 1930s, before being used as a control centre during WWII. I have reimagined the tube station harking back to its 1930s heyday, drenched in romance and optimism.

Along with physically depicting the Underground/Overground systems, it also bridges the evolution of transport. As Brompton Road's legacy ended, tentative steps were being made towards the production of the new Routemaster, eventually rolling out in 1954 and has now become the iconic red London bus.

Ladyhawke Portrait Competition Entry

Hot off the heels of the Florence Competition, I have submitted my illustration for the Ladyhawke Portrait competition, the 20 hand picked winners will be promoted across social media channels and have a special 12" vinyl pressing of their winning entry printed and signed.

This is my entry, there are 20 hours left to vote on this illustration. If you like it, do vote for it!

Florence + the Machine Limited Edition Vinyl Competition Update

I'm extremely pleased to say my illustration for the Florence + Machine competition was chosen as one of 50 winners out of a thousand entries to be specially pressed and exhibited! The event fell on Record Store Day 21st April 2012 and every vinyl which sold was in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust which is a great charity to be involved with.
