Layered, laser cut, plywood illustration measuring 260mm by 135mm by 25mm and matching brooch measuring 42mm by 51mm.
Commissioned by Bloomsbury Children's books as a competition prize to promote their latest book Anyone But Ivy Pocket by Caleb Krisp with illustrations by John Kelly, I was asked to create a piece that focuses the magical clock diamond that the story revolves around.
Layered, laser cut, plywood illustration, the approximate size is 240mm by 395mm and 30mm deep.
The Separation depicts a story that was divinated using the I-Ching, a technique inspired by the Philip K Dick classic, Man on High Castle.
The I-Ching, or Book of Changes, is an ancient Chinese text that allows the reader to search for answers by throwing coins (traditionally they used yarrow stalks). It's not really like fortune telling, horoscopes or anything like that, it's more like a technique of searching your own subconscious for answers using random numbers generated by throwing coins. I'm not a spiritual person myself but I found it to be a really interesting and novel way of making work. It's amazing how freeing it feels to leave the central themes/ideas behind a piece to chance. This was certainly one of my most interesting commissions to date.
Layered, laser cut, plywood illustration depicting the bathhouse from the amazing Spirited Away by Studio Ghibli. Approximate size is 290mm by 390mm and 30mm deep.
Originally commissioned as a Ghibli themed piece, this piece was one of the most fun to research and make. I cant say enough how much I love Spirited Away. Other than simply being a great story, it's the breadth and vision of the world that it's set in with all the little details that make it feel alive. When the movie is over, you feel like that world continues to exist on its own.
