I work predominantly with design and illustration and have experience in Art Direction. My interests lie in fashion, popular culture, branding, magazine and editorial, music and events, film and lifestyle. Just Black is my alter ego used as an illustration design boutique for freelance, collaborations and personal work. I focus on giving bespoke specialised solutions to clients through illustration, design and art direction. The goal is to create both beautiful yet valuable work that both me and the client are proud of, without betraying my tone, humour, energy or ideals in my work.


Tell us a fun fact about you. I handed Dizee Rascal a loo roll once in the VIP toilets of a festival.

Top three clients you've worked with? UKF, Sony Music, Ogilvy


How did you get into illustration? I didn't have a clue it even existed. I was feeling lame at art college with graphic design when my tutor showed me it, and saved my ass.

What tools (digital or not!) do you use to create your work? Pencil, Ink, Fineliner, Textured paper, Photoshop, Illustrator, Wacom Tablet.

Who or what inspires you the most? Among my favourite modern illustrators, I am highly inspired by film, photography, old renaissance art, music, fashion, creative writing, interior design, architecture, personal experiences, people, travel, neon, 80's retro and popular culture.


What's your favourite website for inspiration? Pinterest & Designinspiration to name a couple.

What would your dream project be? Create a masterpiece branding collection for a brand like Nike. To get commissioned to travel the world illustrating for a fashion brand.

How can fans keep up-to-date with your work? Instagram
