I was invited to produce artwork to accompany the Dickensian style text of ‘Rollaresque or The Rakish Progress of the Rolling Stones’ by Simon Goddard.

 

In response, I produced a series of 8 Victorian etching plate style illustrations with a nod to Hablot Knight Browne aka Phiz, the illustrator favoured by Charles Dickens - who's style of writing was echoed by the author.

I produced a series of individual character designs based on the Animal Farm allegory of the Russian Revolution by George Orwell, for Revolution Vodka Bars.

 

On the theme of “Animal Bar (A Fairy Story)”, the characters illustrate the actual person that each character in the book was based on, whilst also relating to the bars food and drink offerings.

“All Vodka’s are Equal… but some are more equal than others”.
