Brief – to create a visual identity for the documentary, including mocking up news paper cuttings, and original archive photographs, and my own sketches into collages of the ‘curse victims’, as well as creating original versions of the famous tomb maps, telegrams and a book cover.
The Burrowers, Dragon Fly TV / BBC
I was asked to provide an impression of a ‘magical doorway in the countryside’ to illustrate the pitch document for Dragon Fly Televisions suggested program ‘The Burrowers’. The pitch was a success and the BBC commissioned the project, and obviously liked my illustrations so much they used one of them as the basis of the final set design, even down to the gauze bush.

Sweeney Todd Programme
A programme to accompany Finger in the Pie’s UK Tour of Sweeney Todd. The brief was to create a programme that would feel ‘hand made’ whilst giving the audience a flavour of the companies research material and methods.
Visual research for an research and developement project looking at perceptions of madness in the 18th Century, especially focussed around the Bethlem Hospital (Bedlam).
Sweeney Todd Tattoo
Brief: Create an advertising tool that would cut through the noise of 2,600 shows all flyering the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, whilst also encouraging participation in marketing the show from the full company. The solution I found was to revive the water slide transfer tattoos of our childhood. The form of the advert fitted the aesthetic of the production, whilst standing out from the crowd. Whilst the fun interactive element of ‘tattooing’ someone was both in the spirit of the Festival, and fun for the company to take part in.
