Map work for Dairyland Farm World

I’ve recently received the printed leaflets for DairyLand Farmworld with my maps on the back and they look so cool!

World Book Day project with LEAP

I recently took part in a collaborative project with Leap and St. Austell Printing Company. Creative Director Matt Hocking from Leap invited me to contribute as I have been supplying illustration work for them for the past 2 years and have a good relationship with them. I had to illustrate part of the story that was written by budding young writer Esme Hocking- Matt’s daughter. It was a fun project to be a part of and I especially liked the collaborative element. The project was initiated by SAPC as part of World Book Day with the aim of showcasing what they can do, as well as bringing together and marketing creative companies and design studios in Cornwall. There has been a good response to the project and it has been picked up by several newspapers and media outlets online.
