South China Morning Post

I have had a few early starts for the South China Morning Post this week
4 am start for a 9.30 am deadline
Cornflakes taste funny at that time in the morning

First one was about needless extra powers in Hong Kong law being introduced under Chinese influence
The second image defended China over ongoing border and territory disputes in the South China Sea, it suggested that Philippines, Vietnam and the USA were the source of the problems.

Chinese New Year

Here is my illustration of the celebration of Spring, featuring the animals of the Chinese zodiac. It has been used in various ways to decorate the luxury shopping mall Pacific Place in Hong Kong.
I designed it in red (a lucky colour) but the pink and brown is quite fun too.
Happy Chinese New Year on the 19th February!

I have been commissioned to do a monthly illustration for the BBC Countryfile Magazine to go along with a regular column by author Sara Maitland. January is about living in the Scottish countryside.

All the best for 2015.
