Illustrations for Endeavour Agency

I collaborated with Stephen Holmes, founder and creative director of Endeavour Agency to produce new illustrations for their new website. Stephen sent over a series of photographs within a brief for me to work on and I sent over pencil sketches for approval before developing into pen illustrations. The illustrations show the exterior of South Wimbledon station and insights into the physical studio space.

The Bootle Embroidery

I've sent off The Bootle Embroidery back to Bootle Library to receive it's final touches and also get a good iron! I've been working with Our Human Library since September 2018 on a series of workshops. The first was an introduction to embroidery, the second encouraging the Stitch Club to create embroideries inspired by Bootle itself and the third and final workshop was more embroidery and discussing how to pull together the embroideries as a final piece. I embroidered the library and also a portrait of Martin who was an important part of the Our Human Library community and sadly passed away last summer. The Stitch Club runs every fortnight at Bootle Library and is hosted by Our Human Library.
