A start of a little self initiated project that started from my love of the Hong Kong and how the people there have made the most out of the tiny spaces they call home to make a living.

A part of an ongoing project; originally I was researching our water consumption through the food we eat and the products we buy (virtual water) but I soon discovered that every sustainability issue we have is interlinked. These two illustrations about land grabbing in Africa and the people involved.

Inky florals

Here’s something I digged up from the archive, I did these at an internship which took place some time ago which involved designing pattern to a trend (very bright clashing coloured florals) that would be used on teacups, plates, cushions, lamps.. These were some of the earlier rejected designs because the inky – watery quality wasn’t what they were after. It was  fun and frustrating all at the same time and I loved working with the creative director which led me to experimenting outside of my usual work patterns. The one below is my favourite!ImageImageImageImageImage
