Who Are You? is the eponymous piece which lends to the feeling of alienation in a foreign context. This piece proposes that in such moments of dissonance, the look of befuddlement is shared by both parties and not just the foreigner.
These were inspired by the layered expressive potential of Chinese calligraphy art. A master once shared with me that you'd have to master all the technical skills of calligraphy before your work starts to reflect your beliefs. I explored this concept with my own practice, looking to express my inner thoughts through lines that were more expressive than figurative. The seal applied to each work is reminiscent of the ornamental seals used on calligraphy work as a decorative watermark.

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.

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.
