A 40th Birthday Commission

A 40th Birthday Commission

    I always get excited when a new client asks me to create something for them!This commission was for a very special birthday, for a lady who loves reading, houseplants, baking and travelling.

We spent most of our break and lunch breaks talking about it, the disbelief of it all. I had an idea to turn our conversation into a project, our pain into pieces of art. What if we could tell our ex’s exactly how we felt while we make positive steps to move on with our lives without them? Before I knew it, I was telling my colleagues that I was going to draw...

A Big Life: Leo Thomas

A Big Life: Leo Thomas

One of the first jobs I had from my new studio was an album cover for the singer, producer and guitarist, Leo Thomas. Absolutely had a bag of fun with this one! I used a myriad of ink and paint textures and tones and digital experiments. I also had the honour of singing on track 3, so do have a listen folks. Available on all streaming platforms.
