Dots and Pens

  • Here are various illustrations I have created using dots, reverting back to traditional techniques and experimenting with simple pen work.

Illustration inspired by the song 'Mountains' by Biffy Clyro. A spot illustration that is versatile, it can be used as book illustration through to a tattoo design.

An oval illustration inspired by the song 'Surrender' by the band Billy Talent. Working more with the human figure as it is something I often feel uncomfortable drawing. Again, in a traditional style and embedded with dots.

Having a bit of fun playing around with phrases and typography.

  • Inspired by Surrealism, a sort of nonsense illustration that I came up with one day and incorporated the dots and little ideas to keep my mind and drawing flowing.

Logo Commission

A logo commission from a small journalism site called 'AltLinc', short for Alternative Lincoln (Twitter: which informs the Lincoln population of alternative events that you wouldn't otherwise hear about, advertising the weird and wonderful.

To create this logo I used Photoshop to experiment with block colour, and to gain a little more experience in the field and also with typography, an area I hope to progress in.
