Radio Times Commission
An illustration for the Lovely Radio Times on a new Radio 4 Play entitled Silent Nights. The drama is about a man whose fanatical obsession with noise pollution makes him take extreme measures to achieve silence. Unable to put up with his obsession any more, his wife leaves him for another man (you cant blame her really!)
This issue comes out Tuesday 16th September, make sure you get a copy!

- Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
