A quick lady I drew for Amelia’s Magazine and her interview with Future Classics designer Julie Wilkins. You can read it here.

It’s been a crazy two weeks! Here’s a few reasons why:

1 & 2: I went on a little day trip to Old Harry’s Rocks with some friends, descending into the coast in Swanage. If no one has been I highly recommend it, it’s beautiful. I even managed to bathe in the sea! It was one of the best days, a perfect way to conclude my days as a student and bid farewell to Dorset for now. These great photos were taken by fellow graduate and friend Annabel Davis

3 & 4: On 27/06, I officially became a graduate! I spent a pretty emotional day dressed in wizard robes by the seaside alongside friends and family. Not only this, I also got a great surprise and got the Dorset Visual Arts prize.

5, 6 & 7: Soon after moving out of Bournemouth, I stayed in London for a week and prepared myself for two big exhibitions: D&AD New Blood and High Noon degree show. Both were great! I met and re-met so many people whose work I love, and who happen to be really friendly too. It was crazy, yet worth while. By the way, all of these photos were taken by Annabel too.

So, the question everyone has been asking me for 100000 times: What now?

I’ve moved back to the Midlands whilst I look out for opportunities and sort out what it is I want to do. I’ll be involved in a few projects and collaborations which I’m really excited for, and I’ll also prepare myself for a trip up north with Jonny to get to know Yorkshire.

And of course, I’ll keep drawing!

This is the start of a new personal era, so expect a lot of new things here soon.

A few drawings done in Tate Britain today!

Hey everybody! Sorry I’ve been pretty quiet, there’s been a heck of a lot going on recently. Just to let you know, I’m exhibiting in D&AD New Blood in London til tomorrow! If anyone is based here, by all means, come say hi!

This isn’t the best of drawings I’ve done, but it’s a lil mermaid I drew for Liam Barrett's Secret troll club. It's a bit creased after having it in my bag for a whole day in London, woops.

Have a look at it, there’s loads of cool trolls and magical beings there!

(For anyone wondering, I got recommended a lovely Portuguese song. I think everyone should enjoy it!)


I got my final degree result today everybody! I’m really proud and happy to say I’m graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Illustration! I already went to celebrate with a picnic in the beach. What a great day!

Some disposables of Berlin from my trip a couple of months ago

Hey everybody! Guess what? A couple of copies of my self published children’s book ‘Man from a golden land’ is now stocked in Gosh! comics in London. My favourite comics shop! If you’re based in London and eager to get yourself a copy, you know where to go now.

Never fear non-Londoners, I will hurry to get my online shop ready and sell a few copies there too! 

You can check out images from the book here, here and here

I got a nice little feature in the Inkygoodness blog today as part of their Graduate Spotlight features! Read here.

Many thanks to Lisa Hassell for the interview.

I’ve been a bit of a butt this week, but I’ll definitely be updating with some drawings here soon.
