Grief Is The Thing With Feathers: Book Cover Design
Grief is the thing with Feathers by Max Porter is a poignant yet whimsically paced narrative of a family that's stricken with grief by the loss of its mother. Grief comes in the form of a crow. It was my favourite read of 2018 and so I decided to design a book cover for it.
When to Stop?
A series of illustrations I submitted to the D&AD Young Blood 2017 Competition
I was commissioned by the Independent for an illustration to support Will Self's article regarding the nature of the UK's mental health facilities and its correlation with the stigma surrounding mental health.
Yellow Peril Supports Black Power
A visual metaphor of purgatory. A transitional phase ridden with motion but lacking in progress.
你是谁？Who Are You?: Solo Exhibition
Who Are You? Is the summation of my 2-month-stay in Zhujiajiao, Shanghai, China. It is a self reflective visual diary encircling my ruminations as an ethnically Chinese foreigner in China. All works as well as promotional material were illustrated and designed by me.
A Gamer's Progress
A modern spin on William Hogarth’s “A Rake’s Progress”. A classic tale of how one’s inherent vices has led to a gradual albeit dramatic fall from grace. It’s a familiar tale, and one worth retelling in a different context. Here you’ll find the steady decline of a privileged kid who succumbs to his gaming addiction.

Various Illustrations I've done over time.
All The People, So Many People
All The People, So Many People is an ongoing visual mixtape which consists of visualised song suggestions from close friends who have been asked the question "Pick a song that summarises our friendship." The idea is that these visualised suggestions will paint an honest portrait of myself. As the wise Jim Rohn once said "We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with".
Artwork for Industria 2019
I was invited by the organisers of Industria (Индустрия), a pioneering design and art festival based in Izhevsk, Russia, to contribute an artwork that pays homage to the city's industrial roots. I sought to visualise the correlation between their industrial heritage and the comforts it allowed its residents by making a connection between their factories and love for sauna.
