India Hells Lager / Camden Town Brewery

Last week saw the launch of Camden Town Brewery's new IHL range, which involved 7 days of beer-related events at their pop-up space. I collaborated with the wonderful people at Studio Juice to illustrate the cans. Check them out below.

Camden Town Brewery described IHL as "the beer of the God's" so worship was a consistent theme throughout the drawings. I was inspired by the ethereal, biblical illustrations of Gustave Dore, using celestial imagery and religious iconography to convey this idea. I wanted to the illustration to feel gothic, while simultaneously being fun and playful.

A few photo's from the launch event


Ryger House
I draw some (very small) icons of various landmarks in central London to be used on a map for Ryger House, a luxury apartment building situated near St James's Square.

Bellerby Globe Makers
I also had the pleasure of collaborating with the wonderful people at Bellerby & Co Globemakers to produce some small illustrated icons for a bespoke globe. Turned out to be a thing of beauty - see if you can spot them!

The Guardian

I had the pleasure of being commissioned to illustrate the front page of the Review section for the Guardian newspaper. It was for feature about upcoming Autumn fiction, featuring authors, from L-R: David Mitchell, Sarah Waters, Hilary Mantel Ian McEwan and Colm Toibin.

Departures Magazine

I was commissioned to illustrate a portrait of the Greek God of wine, Dionysus, supporting an article about...(shockingly) Greek wines. Unfortunately I was unable to get hold of the magazine, but here's the original illustration.

The Beauty

I illustrated the cover for this post-apocalyptic novella by Aliya Whitely. It was published by Unsung Stories who specialise in science fiction and all things strange and wonderful! Give it a read.
