I’m not sure there’s anything more exciting than being asked to illustrate a giant underground railway system, but that’s what Karin at mermermer did, and it was just as exciting as I expected. The Citytunneln in Malmö has various artworks in the stations that the book documents, and the map is the slightly fanciful endpapers to that book.
CD cover for Gerry Cott’s Urban Soundscapes, designed by Paul Andrews. The album’s tracks are each based on a different city or part of the world, so the illustration incorporates everything from rural Ireland to the heights of Tokyo in a single megacity.
Illustrative map of five architectural sights from Barcelona, created for Computer Arts magazine.
I was proper delighted to be asked to design a set of desktop wallpapers for HP to be shipped with their 2010 range of laptops, and was even more delighted when I discovered I was in esteemed company with three other great illustrators: Alex Eben Meyer, Julie West and Amy Ruppel.
The wallpapers are still out there, being shipped with new notebooks. They’re also available for download here if you fancy any of them adorning your screen.
Massive detailed cityscape, based on the view over hilly Bristol. Originally created as a self-promotional piece, but went on to be used in a publication about housing development.
Miscellaneous repeating patterns created for various projects. If there is any feasible way for me to clothe myself in these, Von Trapp family style, I will find it.
