Illustration Friday - Entangled

This peice is put together from old sketches done in New York. Looking out from central park, the trees almost frame the buildings surrounding it - they look intertwined with the branches.

Wagamama t-shirt design competition

Entry into Wagamama's uniform t-shirt design competition. They wanted a design that didnt look like a uniform and 'a cool t-shirt – simple as that!'. I forgot completely about the deadline on this one so managed to put this together in under an hour. I adapted an old image from my 2nd year portfolio making it more relevant to the brief.

The Flints of Memory Lane

Another image inspired by the book Fragile Things. The Flints of Memory Lane tells of a ghost standing under a street light dressed as a gypsy queen. "... dressed like something from a dream, and still she said nothing at all. She began to smile, though, and it was not a nice smile."
