The Island Bakery decided to rebrand their complete biscuits packaging range and they went to agency Ziggurat Brands to transform their product. I was commissioned by Ziggurat Brands to come up with a number of fun characters to playfully represent  island life across the packets. I was also commissioned to illustrate waves dolphins and fishing boats for the inside of the boxes, which is a nice touch for the consumers to find.

There are one or two dream jobs which come along and The Wind in the Willows was one of those dream jobs for me. I'd loved the story as a child and so it was fantastic to be phoned up by Penguin books and asked to illustrate a new cover of The Wind in the Willows for a complete new series of classic penguin books. For the cover design I created a lino cut which I then re-coloured in Photoshop.

In the build up to the Royal wedding I was contacted by Canadian web developers Ink Robin to work on A Royal Fairytale book for the ipad.The book is a semi fictional story of the courtship of Will and Kate for kids. I produced all the drawings in ink on paper and coloured them in Photoshop. All the pages of the ipad book have elements of interactivity so most of the drawings had to have a number of extra parts to them.
