Spitalfield City & Hackney City Farm


Really wanted to draw animals, so I dragged my brother and a friend along to these small but beautiful, (and very smelly) farms. I remembered why I drew dead animals in museums, (they don’t move). The best part of the visit was of course the working farm cats! There were signs asking not to pet them…I petted them.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Book Cover Design


Sheesh, this one turned out totally different from what I had initially imagined. This is a book cover I designed for the novel by Margaret Atwood. Great story, (I like post-apocalyptic-y stuff; I can’t wait forThe Last of Us on PS3). However, the situation the women were in reminded me of black slavery, but everyone in the story was white!

Oryx and Crake: Book Cover Design


Just finishing off reading this book by Margaret Atwood and thought I’d do a book cover for it. I readThe Handmaid’s Tale first and fell in love with her vivid style. Maybe I’ll do a cover for The Handmaids Tale too.
