A very contemporary bond between father and son, just in time for Father’s Day in the UK on 16th June.
I love following the Blown Covers blog and the weekly contests. A few weeks ago I put some ideas together for a “Father’s Day” submission, but unfortunately the end of my degree got in the way so the idea had to be put on hold. I decided to push the image beyond the concept to a finalised stage to potentially go in my portfolio, making sure I didn’t look at any of the winners or runners up so they don’t unintentionally influence me! Completely speculative, it goes without saying.
At long last, I’m posting some of the work from my first “professional” commission a couple of months ago. The series of illustrations can be seen in this month’s edition of NUS Spotlight magazine, and all discuss the union’s pioneering digital initiatives to further connect students. Props to the AD, Alex Trembath and the magazine designers, who have really enhanced my illustrations.
I’m on the look out for editorial commissions at the moment, so if anyone reading this is looking to commission illustration, do get in touch!
