Facelift, the platform hire company, has just released my poster for February which promotes the wearing of Hi-Vis gear on site. It’s entitled Be Seen! My ongoing set of posters features a character to highlight the main message. This month, rather than face imminent death as he did last month, he glows in his bright vest, keeping him out of harms way.

Since the age of 5, I’ve always been seen with a pencil in my hand, frantically scribbling down what is in my head.

My inspiration comes in many forms, from 1950’s poster art to the quirky Japanese characters used to promote the simplest of products. I try to keep my ideas timeless, grounded in the iconic symbols of a timeless era. In the world of illustration, I guess anything goes, because thats the point of it – to communicate an idea in an easily remembered original way.

I generally uses 2B, 4B, 6B and 9B graphite pencils and textured paper, adding digital colour to my work, making it the perfect medium for print, advertising and online usage.
