‘Old Earth’. My winning illustration (top 5) for the Barbican print competition to celebrate our upcoming science fiction exhibition #IntoTheUnknown, they teamed up with contemporary illustration magazine Wrap Magazine and invited artists to help us design an exciting new series of sci-fi inspired prints.
As with most of my illustrations I draw inspiration from the hundreds of science fiction books I’ve read, from Asimov to Iain M Banks. I like to start with a rough idea then see where it takes me and let the viewer make up their own mind about the story.
Why do you deserve to win?
I am proud of this work as it did really well in the Barbican competition as well as selling out in the Barbican shop.
