La Luna

La Luna emphasises how small we are in comparison with the complexities of the universe. Centre stage is the moon—responsible for regulating not only the seasons and the oceans, but also that funny feeling you sometimes get when it's full. Reclining on the moon is a cunning fox; the epitomy of creativity, magic and wisdom. Fluttering nearby, is a delicate butterfly—a reminder of the beauty and brevity of our allotted time.

Pastoral Magic


I have always felt more affinity with less traditional beliefs and karmic power as a life philosophy. As a result, my illustration has been inspired by magick—filled with dreams, illusions and fantasy and the natural world—the elements, seasons and the animal kingdom.

A pastoral scene, symbolising the complexity and beauty of life and where the rays of the sun and the moon are inextricably intertwined and without whom nothing would survive. Mother Nature as the central focus, surrounded by animal spirits. The cat represents the divine and the fox, creativity and magic. The presence of the tiny spider—wisdom and protection, whilst the raven is the purveyor of power and omens. Bottom left in the guise of a frog—the devil! Also at the bottom are the wee folk—visible only to those who believe.

Dracula Untold



My design for the cover art of the digital album release of 
Dracula Untold & Universal Pictures

Every Bloodline has a Beginning—the story of a King, who discovers that the only way he can save his kingdom will be by relinquishing his mortality.

My interpretation of Vlad Tepes shows the beast he becomes: dark, marble-skinned and with soul-less, impenetrable eyes. He is doomed to inhabit the twilight for eternity as—Dracula—a fate which he endures with a silent determination and deep melancholy.

Designed as cover art for the digital album release by Universal Pictures.
