About me

I'm an illustrator of studio BloodBros. (www.bloodbros.co) .
Originally from New Zealand, I lived in London for five years, moving to Tokyo in 2018. I really want to get to know local creatives, so hit me up for a coffee/drink if you want.
My background is originally graphic design, having worked in the industry 7 years before realising the dream to illustrate full time. Design still influences my style a great deal though, in terms of craft, technique and composition. I like to keep things fun and friendly with a sense of humour and soft colours. I dabble in animation too when I find the time or the brief allows it.
I’m open to any jobs, big and small.
Tools used: Mac and Ipad Pro, Adobe CC, Pixaki, Procreate.

My Creations

  1. Sunday Times: Food Alphabet

    28 October 2018

    A wonderfully strange request from Sunday Times (UK). The article was about culinary classes in London. I was asked to create an educational 'alphabet' poster, of weird foods and food related things.

  2. Neko ni Koban

    28 October 2018

    A personal project, illustrating this amazing izakaya in Gakugei Daigaku.

  3. An animation I did for New York delivery companies; Seamless & Grubhub's instagram accounts.

  4. Stairway: Setagaya

    29 October 2018

    Little compostion of a building in Setagaya

  5. The Hunt

    29 October 2018

    Renaissance inspired cowboy piece

  6. Konbini

    28 October 2018

    For an exhibition at By&By, Shoinjinja

  7. Judgement of Paris

    29 October 2018

    Another renaissance piece. Bit more psychedelic this time. I wanted to make the original more modern not just in attire (or lack of) but gesture too.

  8. Ramen II

    29 November 2018

    What else do you draw in Japan? Actually part of a bigger piece.
