Illustrations for Nature - DNA Barcodes





Here are some illustrations I did for the current issue of Nature: The International Journal of Science. The images were created for an article about DNA barcodes and the fact that mitochondrial sequences - such as those that give rise to each species's unique bar code - might actually be linked to the way species evolve. The images were created using ink.

Sketchbook Pages




I often create a lot of sketchbook work. Some of the work inspires future prints and drawings, some might be returned to at a later date to be reworked and some will probably remain forever inside the pages of my sketchbooks. I thought I would start sharing some of the pages on my blog. So to start with, here are some recent sketches, scraps and findings from my current sketchbook.

Vintage Irn-Bru Can.



Irn-Bru have released a limited edition can to celebrate Homecoming Scotland 2009. The can features the original 1947 Irn-Bru logo. Here's a little drawing of it!

Esquire September '09



An illustration for the September issue of Esquire magazine, for an article about the abundance of celebrity panel shows on TV.

Nature Magazine



Here are some illustrations that were commissioned by Nature Magazine. For the top image, I was asked to create an image in the style of an architectural blueprint to illustrate the curves of cell membranes. The second image was commissioned a while ago, but like the blueprint image, it shows a slightly different illustration style, combining collage and hand-drawn elements. This image was for an article about Levy Flights.

My Microcars image has been used in a booklet for Cougar, an American paper company. Commissioned through Private View Agency.

London Drawings




After 8 years of living in London, I'm finally moving back to my home city of Glasgow next week. Although I'm really looking forward to continuing my illustration work while being closer to my family and the Scottish countryside, I've loved living in London as it's provided a lot of inspiration over the last few years. Here are a few London drawings I did a while ago for Graphic Thought Facility. Goodbye London!
