Castro and Cuba

Does anyone else think its weird that the Americans still have sanctions against Cuba?
I mean what are they afraid of? the spread of Communism, at this late stage?!

Anyway...i did an Illustration of Cuba and Fiedel Castro at the height of his power....

Design Treatments

This is some of the concept work I have been doing freelance for a design company, the context is a corporate leaflet exploring the ideas behind the company.

Sports Car Tuning

cartuner copy

I have not had much work on this last week so I got round to doing another Editorial. This one is for an article in the Financial Times's "How to Spend It" supplement about precision tuning for performance sports cars.
Buying a Sports Car, especially a customized one is usually a method of defining identity amongst those who can afford them so I worked in some fingerprints into the design along with the billowing money and robot arms.

Chinese Robot Builder

Had quite a lot of work on these last few weeks, phoning publications and doing a bit of freelance design work, so I have been a bit crap about doing any new editorial work
I managed to get this done on sunday

Chinese robot builder 4 copy

The piece is based on something I saw in "Paul Merton in China" about an uneducated chinese farm labourer who inexplicably taught himself how to build robots out of everyday objects and trash... I saw him as person who could work out how things worked just by looking at them, almost like an exploded view of the world.

China's changing economy


I finished this piece the other day but im looking for work now so time is a bit constricted, the idea is about how china is dividing into a financial upperclass and underclass while still maintaining the pretense of communism.
