The variety on display is actually astounding; I think most people would be surprised to find that we were all from the same course. On the wall where I’m displaying my work alone, there are photorealistic pencil drawings, theme park design, tattoo design, album art, fashion illustration and acrylic sketches of London scenes and people. You’ll also find children’s book illustration, typography, science illustration, puppetry, comic books, editorial work, animation, book covers, 3D work… the list goes on. Illustration can be anything and it tends to be a very accessible art form, there really is something for everyone at this exhibition.
I am showing my theme park design work, which is rather unusual for an exhibition space. Concept art in general tends to be a very secretive art form and theme park design is not a very well known area. I think most people were a bit confused as to what they are looking at with my work tbh, but that’s kind of what I expected. I hope that people could appreciate the drawing and story telling. I have a portfolio and sketchbook also on display.
I’m also showing “The Problem”, the book that David and I made earlier this year. We were selling copies, but I’ve heard today that only the display copy is left! I’m thrilled that they’ve all sold since opening last night! We still have prints for sale of our favourite page spread and the book is on display in the reading area for you to have a look at! Speaking of the reading area, it’s awesome.

Certain things are authoritative by their very nature and thus convincing in the telling of lies (intentional, or otherwise). Take something like The Onion, for example, which uses the conventions of news reporting to convey realism. It makes you question if "real" news is to be trusted, which it often isn't.
Museums are another one of those authoritative things. We trust what is on display simply because it is on display. I abused the conventions of natural history illustration and museological display here. That is not an American alligator. any ideas what it is?
I was originally going to do a series of these which became increasingly obviously lies, but I never got round to it.
This is nice evidence that I can paint realistically too. It's acrylic on heavyweight paper.
