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.
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.
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.
