These illustrations were inspired by Kate Wilson and Brett Ryder. I love Wilson's use of text, aged paper and cute, nostalgic drawing style. I like how Ryder references the past and see similarities in our styles.
My own drawing is a flying machine created in my imagination with a narrative aspect which is a feature I want to include in my work.

Students of Manchester Art School are collaborating with Ian Anderson of Designers Republic to have their images on the hoardings surrounding the new campus building while it is being built. We have been invited to have our pictures taken and digitally alter them to represent who we are as a designer.
Unfortunately my original photograph was disgusting, so lots of Photoshop to fix it! It isn't completely done yet and I might change it all together!
I've made myself into a drawing and done some textile design using more of my own illustrations and textures. It is about my handmade/ digital aesthetic which I think sums me up as a designer!

I have applied colour to my pencil drawing. I have used minimal colours as the cross hatching adds depth of colour but have used highlights for a 3 dimensional effect.
I really want to go on an outing in one of these!

Completely unofficial gig listing for Two Door Cinema Club. I've been listening to their brilliant album "Tourist History" non stop throughout this project so felt it appropriate to make them the subject of it!
I've been inspired by Jason Munn's amazing band posters. Such a talented artist!

Used a new technique here, drawing in Photoshop. It gives a thrird dimension which I like.
The bottom one is a "Schizophrenic bow tie" inspired by those on Fine and Dandy

This is my trendbook which is also menswear autumn winter 2011 but this time a formalwear project. It is in anticipation of the London 2012 olympics and how I anticipate "Englishness" will come to the fore.
I combined exotic animal prints with formalwear because I was inspired by nature's endangered species and mixed it with mans endangered species "the dandy" to give wearable eccentricity. I feel it gives an air of modern vintage. I also experimented with illustration style combining my handrawn style with collage.
It has sparked a massive interest in mens formalwear and dandyism for me. I was lucky enough to have my work published on my favourite blog
It is a brilliant site!
Learning Agreement One:
This was a mens casualwear trend book for Autumn Winter 2011 focusing on the Apocalypse. It was inspired by the Mayan prophecy that the world will end in 2012 so is in anticipation of this should it occur. It looks to combine fashion, military and nature to inform a silhouette where the ultimate purpose is to protect. Dark colours with neon flashes are the basic colour palette.
