Super Kitchen

Various EP cover artworks created over 5 years for the club-music focused record label, Super Kitchen.

I was one of the founding members of the label during my university years, and was responsible for all creative direction, as well as the design of the logo mark.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed taking the visual style of the label in my own direction. That opportunity resulted in some of my most formative works, defining the direction of my own creative practice and stylistic identity.

You can find these artworks and more in the Super Kitchen back catalog on Bandcamp here.

Studio 43

A series of explorative 3D renderings and animations based around the Studio 43 logo mark.

 

I use these logo experiments as opportunities to push the limits of what I can do in terms of scene composition, lighting and rendering. I find it to be a great way of consolidating newly learnt techniques.

I have worked at Studio 43 since 2016; first as a CAD/3D print technician, and now primarily a fabrication-focused digital artist, responsible for digital sculpting, technical CAD design and concept illustrations and animations.

I also built the Studio 43 website, which you can see here.

Baba Roga

A selection of animated marketing materials created for eco jewellery brand, Baba Roga. 

I worked closely with the Director, Liz, to establish a style of animation befitting her artistic vision for the brand. 

I also built the Baba Roga website, which you can see here.

Flunks NFT

I have been acting lead artist at Flunks NFT since 2022, and was responsible for translating their original collection of pixel avatars into fully illustrated generative characters built from interchangeable layers.

After the successful completion of the illustrated avatars, I was tasked with evolving the collection even further, by taking it into the third dimension.

 

I modelled, textured and rigged an original 3D Flunks character along with all other collection assets (ie. hats, glasses, tops, bottoms, shoes, etc). 

 

The end product being an interactive browser experience where NFT owners can purchase different items and equip them to their unique animated character.

Jason Taylor

Digital renderings and animations from various projects undertaken at Studio 43 for Jason deCaires Taylor.

 

The visuals explore Jason's work through a digital lens; bringing the important topic of ocean conservation into the virtual world.

 

I worked alongside Jason to create original 3D models for his Ocean Sentinels project. These were digitally sculpted in Zbrush and then processed before being milled from PU foam and cast in concrete. The sculptures are now in an underwater museum near The Great Barrier Reef.

 

I was also provided scanned assets to use as a basis for various coral growth simulations.

Mina

Various artworks created for global club-music DJ and producer, MINA.

I worked closely with Mina over the space of several years to create various EP covers and album artworks - most notably the album artwork for "Flight Paths". I am also responsible for designing the logo for Mina's record label, Earth Kicks.

Personal works

A selection of self-initiated projects and individual artworks which I consider good examples of my creative and technical abilities.
