Minimalist Brighton Designs

Brighton is full of inspiration of things to draw! Recently I have found a style of drawing having in mind screen printing, keeping the look stripped back to basics.

Starting with the West Pier, I cleaned the chaotic look of the burnt pier to a few clean lines. The Pavilion is so decorative it is hard to make minimalist! The i360 has satisfying clean lines in real life so works quite naturally.

The iconic can-can legs on the Duke of York’s cinema and Komedia were my first one colour drawing in a screen print style.

The murmurations of starlings that fill the sky on the sea front in Brighton is one of my favourite things about living here. I drew each simplified bird individually to create a sense of movement.

All of the designs are now on 11RugbyRoad.com

Hello World

As part of a brief designed to introduce myself to total strangers, I created this double spread which I’ve resized to fit better onscreen.

I wanted to pack as much information in as possible whilst sticking to the word limit. Hopefully I got across a little bit of what I am like!
