For my final project, as part of my Masters, I decided to write, illustrate and produce a Gambian specific story book, which would potentially be used in schools throughout the region in which my Dad teaches. Until now children would have access to only donated books, newspapers and comics, which they would use in the classroom to practice reading english, many of which were on subjects which were difficult for the children to identify with.
After several trips to the country, a number of visits to several schools and discussions with teachers, I identified a need for a book which was not only age specific but also Country specific, meaning that kids would be able to see pictures of landscapes and animals of Gambia.
Marvin The Monkey is a 16 page, full colour book, which was self published in September 2008. Above are a few sample pages. It has been one of my most challenging projects to date but also the most rewarding.

I've been working with Ric at Exist Skateboards for a number of years now. To date, I've produced around five or six designs that have been used on a range of clothing, including tshirts, hooded sweatshirts and crew neck jumpers. Shown above are a couple of these designs (some of which I even modelled myself in a photoshoot with photographer Tyron Francis)

This logo was designed to be used for vehicle signage, staff uniforms and corporate stationary. The client wanted a logo that would stand out amongst the many local painting firms as well as stand for quality, expertise and trust.

I initially designed this series of prints as a personal project. I have always enjoyed collecting quotes from various sources (Although, I came up with three out of the five sayings shown below), and decided to play around with several of them using bold, typeface orientated A3 prints. My brief was to compose positive messages in a clean and sharp way.
These posters are now available in Ocean Gallery, Swansea, and can be purchased as a print only or framed. (01792 473689)
In these posters for a monthly night of 80's and 90's indie, punk and rock music called Goo!, I used full bleed black and white images of iconic 90's bands and live shows. The concept being the specific audience for this underground night would recognise these representations of their teenage 'going out years'.

I was asked to come up an updated, contemporary and modern logo for the newly launched Parc Hall Community hall. After recent funding, the hall was looking to attract younger residents to live gigs and concerts. This logo was used on promotional material such as posters, flyers and magazine/newspaper advertising.
