Rodent Illustrations for STV Pest Control
Sorry I haven’t updated the blog in a while! I’ve been so busy recently setting up my other taxidermy brand Taxidermy Co. but I’ve still been doing a lot design and illustration work in between!
Here’s something I’ve done recently illustrated for the Big Cheese brand at STV Pest Control:
Skull Scarves, Oddities and the rebrand of ‘Perished Pets’
Remember the repeat skull pattern series I developed a while back? Well, I got them made in to epic things!!!
Initially, I thought they would look great as an exclusive set of posh wallpapers. I went on a quest and reached out to a whole bunch of retailers to see if they were interested, but with unfortunately no luck.
But it all worked out great in the end!Read More

Grandad Portrait Painting – Watercolours
For my Dad’s birthday this year, I painted my lovely Grandad Newby (My Dad’s Dad) in watercolours for him. He loved it! :) Grandad Newby my be sadly gone, but he is never forgotten.
Ever since I got commissioned to paint a boat for a customer as a Christmas gift, I have been 100% addicted to painting with watercolours, seriously. They are so easy to work with and produce beautiful imperfections which makes the paintings so unique, I love the excitement it brings not knowing what unexpected patterns are going to be formed within the painting.
You’ll be seeing a lot more watercolour work from me in the near future.
Sailing Boat Watercolour Painting Commission
Just before Christmas, I was commissioned by a client to paint her husband’s beloved sailing boat. She wanted the boat to be sailing at sunset along the Wells-next-the-Sea coastline, where he loves to sail. She sent me photos of the actual boat in action and I imposed it into the prefered landscape and setting.
It’s painted in watercolours by hand on high quality A4 350gsm watercolour paper. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with watercolours, I forgot how much I enjoyed working with them and I am pleased with the end result!
This project has sparked motivation in me to work with watercolours a lot more, I’m excited to show you all what I’ve been working on since this!
Hideaway Band Logo Design
Here’s a recent logo that I designed for the upcoming Central New Jersey indie based indie-pop Band ‘Hideaway’.
They wanted quite a retro feel to their new band logo inspired by neon lights; Here’s what I came up with!
I made a little animated GIF of the logo too, with a flickering light effect, I thought it looked pretty eye catching and effective! You can check out Hideaways musical endeavours by checking them out on social media with the handle @hideawaytheband
Are you in a band and in need of an eye catching new logo to engage with your fans? Please get in touch today to discuss!

It may be the beginning of our winter here in the UK, but down under Wild Minds Clothing have recently launched their summer range, featuring this adorable Praying Otter tank I illustrated, brilliantly titled as ‘I Otter Pray. Grab yours now!
I very much look forward to working with them again in the near future on anther exciting design, this time raising funds for various animal charities based in Australia!
