playgroup festival//
for the past couple of months i have been collaborating on the artwork & concepts for the playgroup festival. here are pictures of the finished leaflet/poster and flyers. the theme is british wildlife, and ticket holders are designated animals to dress up as. these are divided into predator vs prey (apart from the badger/stag!). the idea behind the photoshoot was wind in the willows meets fantastic mr. fox. i can honestly say it was a super fun project to be a part of!

continuous illustration book//
This project is a self-initiated concertina book which will have one continuous narrative illustration. It takes the form of a ludicrous yarn that a boy is spinning, about his day's events, to a group of people waiting at the bus stop. Each character that appears in the tale appears at the end as one of these people. These images are possible elements of the tale that could form parts of the illustration.
