Portraiture is my strongest skill within my practice, I have spent years of my life devoted to portraiture allowing me to capture great likenesses within my work. Portraiture is a skill that I will continue developing and improving far into the future, constantly adapting my style to keep my work fresh.
This bold and vibrant portrait is a prime example of my portraiture that showcases my style perfectly. The illustration of Pedro Pascal shows my love of bright saturated palettes, and my use of textures and expresses hints of retro styling.

Commissioned by A1 Majalla Magazine, this brief celebrating two great writers from Sudan was one of my tighter deadlines, with just a day to present a finished piece. With a request to give a looser sketch-like feel, I was able to let the textures and marks take control.
An atmospheric portrait of singer Sigrid. Working on this image, I wanted to create a real sense of emotion through lighting, I also wanted to ensure I was a little more subtle with my textures creating a softer feeling illustration.
A fun portrait study of a young Michael Caine, sightly different to my other portrait work. This piece originated as a hand drawn sketch that I enjoyed so much, I decided to take it into digital. Where most of my work is drawn digitally from the get go, the texture of this piece shines from traditional methods.
The darjeeling limited
As a huge Wes Anderson fan, I couldn't resist illustrating one of my favourites and an often overlooked film of his. bringing focus on the faces in a diagonal composition, I feel I was able to capture the sense of journey that the film is truly about.
