Last year for each of my friend’s birthdays I made them a bespoke flavoured-alcoholic treat, with custom packaging. Each was unique and the two above were personal favourites of mine.
It’s all downhill from here!! A quick experimental animation.

I don’t often write much about my working process, but here’s a one off run through with a few process shots…
My inspiration for this card came from the following:
1. Goats Yelling Like Humans - Super Cut Compilation.
2. The Divided Self by R. D. Laing - book cover design
All of my work starts off as a loose unrefined sketch, much like above.I then blocked out the main shape with black, which I later retouched and recolored digitally.
Using gouache I then painted some flora and vegetation, these were later scanned in and layered digitally over the goats.

I recently did an editorial illustration to accompany an article for One Thing I Know. The Article by Mark Terry-Lush of Renegade was about Opening a Second Office.
I’ve been drawing a lot of goats recently. This is a small spot illustration I did for a section in a festival program about growing your own veg.
I figured it was time for another seasonal eclectic playlist. Again, hope you enjoy the music and the illustration I made to accompany it. Also Available as a YouTube playlist if you don’t have Spotify: http://ly1.fr/_gXPSA
