How to make a blue tit...
I start by sculpting the paper into the basic form of the blue tit using photographic images for reference. My client had a very clear brief that the bird had to be facing to the right and also fit nicely within the square format they use for the magazine cover.
Once the main body was created I then spent some time cutting out the individual elements by hand and feathering them with the scalpel. I felt it was important that the feathers were all different so that it retained a really handmade natural feel.
The client then needed to approve the final model before I set it up for shooting.
Waitrose Weekend Magazine asked me to create an illustration of their new 'Frushi' product, fruit sushi! Instead of fish the rolls are filled with pineapple, melon and other fruit; surrounded by coconut. Delicious!Read More

I've started to create a range of paper craft decorations for children's rooms called 'Finlay's house'. They can be personalized for each child- in this case the elephant's headdress has 'f's' on it.. (as I designed it for my 3 year old son Finlay.)Read More

Spencer Jones is a very talented, bonkers comedian. I'm a big fan so I was chuffed when he asked me to design his flyers and posters for his Edinburgh show: 'The Herbert in Proper Job.' I took his concept and photographs and worked them up for him. The poster has been entered into the comedy poster awards- please vote for us!
If you're in Edinburgh, come and see the show it's amazing.
