Free Range Eggs!

My favourite part of this McDonalds project was to design some huge and ornate illustrations to adorn the sides of their delivery trucks. This is surely my biggest 'canvas' to date but I had so much fun inventing these surreal landscapes. Commissioned by the international advertising agency, Leo Burnett, I have been working on this project for about 6 months and there is still more to come!
As well as the 4 trucks, keep an eye out for numerous press ads in UK national papers and magazines during June and July and more of my illustrations on their website here.

McDonalds Summer Advertising Campaign

After many months of hard graft, I am delighted to unveil, the first in a series of ads I have created for McDonalds UK. The campaign, based around the ABC of the brand's ethics, will be running throughout the summer in UK national press as well as online, in-store and on the sides of some rather beautiful trucks. I'll put more pictures up soon!

Sevenseas Jointcare Adverts

Spotted! If you are in London this summer, keep an eye out for my latest illustrations for UK brand Sevenseas. I took these slightly shaky shots while standing on a travelling tube (with all the other passengers giving me very strange looks!) There are more up throughout the Underground as well at press adverts in the national newspapers, digital escalator panels and animated online banners. I'll post more soon!

Sasha Wagstaff Series

I have had the pleasure of designing lots of book covers but this one has to be one of my particular favourites. Earlier this year I was asked by Headline books to rebrand their best selling author, Sasha Wagstaff. They wanted a mixture of illustration and photography on the cover of her latest novel, as well as a strong, modern look for Sasha's name.

Abu Dhabi International Book Fair

This post is shamefully late - but I am just now surfacing from my busiest work period EVER. I have some exciting new work to show you and one big project to reveal next week. But for now, let's skip back a couple of months to The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair which this year had the very special new addition of an Illustrator's Corner - promoting illustration and matchmaking artists and publishers from the Middle East and North Africa and across the globe. It was a pleasure to be involved this year and I made some great contacts as well as meeting a load of fabulous and talented artists from the region. Here is a small selection of designers, animators and illustrators who I got to know at the book fair. Click their pictures for a link to their own websites and here for more information on the book fair.
As well as exhibiting my work at the Book Fair, I was asked by The National newspaper to illustrate the cover of their special edition book fair magazine - for which they requested a typographic interpretation of the 50 Novels You Should Have Read - have you read them all?!
