Ten years of travel from England

A diagram documenting my travels abroad over the last ten years (the life of my passport). It shows the patterns I was interested in seeing, such as most visited countries and peek times of year. However, a flaw with the design is that a week in 2010 looks a lot longer than a week in 2000, so it's not an entirely fair representation.

Website redesign:

I was bored with my first website design. The novelty of kitsch cup-cakes wore off, and the pointlessness of it was grating on me:

I aimed for something more styalised and with a subtle quirk to it. The general layout is simplistic on first view. I am hoping the animated refresh symbol is inviting people to click on this button (I am waiting for feedback on this). On reloading the page a different background is chosen at random from a selection. This feature was also present on my last design, but was used to little effect. This time, the design supports the array of variation created by each background design, and it's main interest (aside from content) relies on this feature being 'found'.

ICAO Spelling Alphabet

The alphabet is complete, but not yet finished. There is a lack of consistency – I made some illustrations far too detailed. My next stage it to refine the style.

ICAO Spelling Alphabet

I have almost completed my illustrated ICAO Spelling Alphabet. Bits still need tweaking, but it's well on it's way to completion.
Ideas for uses of this piece as a poster could be in an aviation training centre, aviation museum display, gift shop souvenir…

ICAO Spelling Alphabet

I recently started a personal project where my brief is to illustrate the International Civil Aviation Organisation spelling alphabet. The illustrations must be clean, of a consistent graphic style and most importantly; recognisable. This has thrown up many problems, for example people or place names… but this is all part of the challenge.

Cute animals

I made a new cleaning rota for me and my house mates. I had the time and inspiration to illustrate it and so this extract evolved. Illustration style inspired by screen print artists.

Square character from Matt Forsythe's comic, Ojingogo.

I bought the comic for a friend's birthday and made this character to accompany the lovely present.
I sewed wire into his limbs so he can bend.

Mind Maps

One evening I sat in on a meeting in Germany. I wasn't involved, and so I scribbled the whole time.
