Decided to do a quick illustration of the 45th President of the US of A (done in Adobe Illustrator). Here he is lost at the crossroads along from where his mother was born in the Isle of Lewis in Scotland – traditional leaving bag of island treats as standard…
I updated an A2 folding leaflet that was created a few years back for Urras Oighrachd Ghabhsann (The Galson Estate Trust), which advertised local businesses and also folded out into an information leaflet that showed places of interest, heart defib locations and more, while also having a detailed map of the estate itself in the Isle of Lewis, Scotland.
Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsann (The Galson Estate Trust) asked me to create their 2017 calendar. The A4 folded calendar used some fantastic high-res imagery taken by people who lived in the district and covered various aspects of island life.
A4 illustration of the magnificent USS Indianapolis speech in Jaws by Quint (Robert Shaw) with Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) in the background. Original was created using prismacolor pencils on Strathmore paper. A4 prints done on 220gsm satin paper available here.
Highland PICT (Pre-hospital Immediate Care & Trauma) are a voluntary response group in the Scottish Highlands, made up of medical professionals and trained volunteers. They approached me to create a logo to sum up their ethos.
The ‘Rod of Asclepius’ is a traditional medical symbol, and I added the vector image of Highland mountain peaks in the background that also mirror heart monitor ‘beats’. The colour scheme was chosen to represent heather and hills, but also the purple and green Northern Lights often witnessed in northern Scotland.
Sketchpad drawing of ‘Eleven’ from Netflix’s brilliant TV series Stranger Things. Black Rotring pen on Strathmore Toned Tan paper.
Logo created for a new electrical services company, using the request of imagery involving traditional wiring to create a graphic that would work with the company name.
