As part of Abbey Road 50th anniversary celebrations, Abbey Road Studios came up with a new artistic spin on the famous wall outside the Studios. Over the duration of the coming months they’ve hand selected some of there favourite artists to visualise a song off the album by the Beatles. I was honoured to be selected as the first artist to ever paint the iconic Studio wall and selected the song “Here comes the sun”.

My biggest digital mural to date.. This huge 30 meter beast of a Mural is for the brand new Nike department in the recently revamped Flagship Sports Direct store on Londons Oxford Street.

Incorporating all elements London, from Buses, Big Ben and the Olympic Park! The amount of detail and time to create the content was intense but well worth the blood sweat and nearly tears! A huge thanks to Bec Dennison for art-working on the project. If in London and near to Oxford Street pop in enjoy the visual London delights!

A fun days freestyle illustrating at the London First Infrastructure summit that took place in the QEII Centre in Westminster. This year’s key topics were discussing transport and developments with regards to Crossrail 2, environmental issues: improving air and water quality within London, housing and the need of more affordable housing within the capital and the digital infrastructure with 5G being a big topic. Throughout the day I got to talk to numerous attendees and ask them what key factors they’d like illustrated on the wall. It’s always slightly nerve-wracking not having a sketch to work from but just as exciting to see how a mural organically grows and takes shape throughout the day…. Hoping to do more jobs like this in the near future!
