Flower magazine

Today I received my contributor’s copy of Flower magazine, a beautiful publication based in Birmingham, Alabama.

The commission was as joyful to work on as the pictures suggest! The illustrations accompany an article about how to tailor your garden to excite each of our five senses; sight, sound, taste, smell and touch.

Here is a little peak at the spreads.

I especially enjoyed making the little spot illustrations, which made me want to get out to the allotment (and buy a cat and a pink watering can)!
 

History Revealed

I’m just about to start my fifth map design for History Revealed magazine, a new title from Immediate Media, which is brimming with historical biographies, forgotten photographs and fascinating facts.

I have the enviable job of producing illustrated maps which document famous historical journeys of caricatured heroes and villians, and unusual characters, who have either triumphed or perished in their lofty pursuits.

So far, we’ve covered Ernest Shackleton, Butch Cassady and the Sundance Kid, Jack Kerouac and an unfortunate duo, who are bitterly defeated by the Australian outback (not out yet!).
