As promised, selected pages from my self promotional book. Size is A5, limited to 20 copies. A fair selection of work was included in varying styles to entice potential customers and show flexibility. 

Not overly pleased with the title, it was a generic filler that I decided to go with due to time constraints, and felt it fit. 

I only have 3 copies left, for swaps/sale. The rest have been distributed at the London Book Fair to art directors and relevant publishers.

Amanda Wood, Publishing Director at Templar Publishing commented that she felt I’ve concentrated too much on one subject. I agree wholeheartedly on this, and feel that perhaps I should have done a more general piece, including other animals and ephemera from worldwide history and cultures. This applies to my portfolio too. On the plus side, she really liked my work and style, and advised putting all my effort into promoting my work to museums and similar institutions. 

Insects, 2012.

Two A3 pages from my sketchbook. Thought it’d be much simpler just to show them like this than edit and edit and edit. They take too long to do.
