In September a new edition of The Hobbit was published with 150 of my illustrations in, along with the 2014 Tolkien Calendar too.

I recently self published a limited edition book of ink drawings in December called ‘Trees’, and am working on my next limited edition book now.

While on VisCom the tutors gave me lots of advice on making a career out of my creativity. I gained skills in both Illustration and Graphic Design giving me the choice of two career paths when I graduated. I chose to illustrate a book by J R R Tolkien called Roverandom as my final major project, and showed this to the publishers – HarperCollins. They asked me to illustrate The Hobbit a year later! VisCom gave me the confidence and guidance with my portfolio that helped me to approach publishers with my work.
