"After missing out on last years comeback gigs in Manchester, I was giddy with excitement at landing tickets to see The Stone Roses in London this June. To celebrate my all time favourite band, Ive started a series of type based illustrations around their iconic songs and lyrics."
"Part three of my Stone Roses inspired type series.
Using type created by hair, ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ examines our vanity, insecurities and subconscious desires to be accepted and loved.
After all, everyone likes to be told they look nice - right?”
"After producing ‘Mortlake’ a few of my neighbours in the nearby suburb of ‘Sheen’ asked if I could produce something for them. The piece is a historical celebration of the area, featuring details and iconography to depict its illustrious past."

“Mirror Animals is an ongoing illustration project which started in 2009 inspired by the idea of unnatural perfection. By drawing animals with plenty of detail and modifying their lack of symmetry using computer, one can create monsters which, on the other hand, turn to be visually balanced and aesthetically attractive.” — Adrià de Yzaguirre
