I am a London-based illustrator, designer, and daydreamer. I like to create magical, thought-inspiring worlds within his incredibly detailed illustrations. My artwork is filled with imagery that is equal parts disturbing and adorable featuring such characters as a suit-clad fox smoking a pipe, a long-limbed and somber monkey, and gloomy-eyed children scamping after bees and spiders amidst haunting landscapes. My work is a distinctly new take on the sort of innocent illustrations you would find in a children's fairy tale picture book.
A lot of the illustrations featured in this Collection are taken from my hand-drawn and self-published book The Middle of Nowhere. I deliberately didn't include any text in my book because this way my audience are compelled to come up with their own unique narratives that no other reader can replicate. I was hoping that by making it a purely illustrated book, it would allow the reader to get more absorbed by the story, and let their imaginations fill in the blanks. If I had added words, I don't think it would have had the same effect, and it would have taken some of the mystery away from the book. It was also a great challenge for me to illustrate all the different environments, emotions, and expressions without the words to back them up. Enjoy my Collection!
