a photograph of a couple dozen sketchbooks of different shapes, colours and sizes.

some of the books i've worked in over the last five years or so.

i'm constantly messing around on paper, on canvas, on my laptop with my trusty little wacom; some things don't get fully resolved or go to print, but i still like them. i think it's important to recognise that the skill to make something finished and beautiful comes from the freedom to scribble and collage. a good concept thumbnail comes from years of drawing in margins or the corners of pages; a character design or a logo may come from a long period of aimless doodling that organically returns to the same shape. 
below is a sample of smaller works, personal pieces, sketchbook pages and unrealised projects.
