A series of cute animal illustrations – one for each letter of the alphabet! Animation, paper cutting and photography were used to explore different ways of presenting the illustrations.
A magazine design with travel photography and bespoke illustrations. The front cover illustration has a unique background texture that was created by painting marks directly onto a silkscreen and pulling the ink onto paper, like a screenprint but without a stencil. The image was edited in photoshop then screen printed on top as a second layer to create the final design.
This project is a culmination of my love for travel, illustration, design and printmaking. The inspiration came from my first visit to India, where the rich culture, colours and diversity of the places I visited made a lasting impression on me. I wanted to recreate the vibrancy and intricacy of the experience in my own art, while also finding a way to showcase my favourite images from the trip, which led to this self-initiated ‘North India Lookbook’.
Tuk Tuk illustration
A fun, colourful digital illustration of a tuk tuk inspired by a trip to India.
I came across a vehicle similar to this while travelling, wandering around the colourful streets of Jaipur and loved the message on the back!
Talking to the drivers on various rides about their tuk tuks, I discovered that each one is unique, decorated by the owners who are very proud and thankful that they have the opportunity to make a living through driving.
These mandala illustrations were first hand-drawn, then scanned and reproduced as monoprints.
The process involves creating a stencil of the design then layering different colours of ink onto the stencil before pulling it across by hand (using a squeegee) so that the ink transfers onto the paper. Layering a few different colours of ink produces a new result each time the ink is pulled through, so every print is effectively unique.
This Taj Mahal screenprint art was created from a personal photo taken on a visit to India in 2013. The contrast of the image was digitally edited, then some details were drawn back in ink before recreating as a screenprint.
The colourful version of the Taj Mahal with a background gradient was created as a monoprint, a process of layering ink that produces a different, unique result for each version. The Taj Mahal image was then screen printed as a second layer.
