A selection of pieces taken from projects completed during my final year of university.

Carmelite Prize - One and Only

Illustrations for the 2020 Carmelite Prize, a competition for which participants must illustrate pages of a chosen children’s book. This year’s book of choice was “One and Only” by Jeanne Willis. It features a very lonely bird of paradise who is desperate to find a friend. I chose to depict the bird as a somewhat slovenly, tired character, as I felt it suited the humorous tone of the book.

A personal project in which I sought to create a non-alcoholic IPA brand based around characters called “Boozehounds” – anthropomorphic dogs who like to drink too much. 

Boozehounds explores various facets of English drinking culture, especially the negative aspects that can arise from excessive drinking. I focused on three specific beer varieties – “Chunder”, “Hooligan” and “Mornin’ After”. I created labels and packaging for the three IPAs, as well as other designs for various drinking paraphernalia.
