Here is the whole image. The wall is 2m by 7m.


Here are some details and work in progress. Firstly I draw with pencil then colour in with acrylic paint then used Posca on top. I love Posca! 





Inferno is a boutique ad agency, so I put lots images that represent the agency, shake hands, medals, computers, phones...also they asked me to put some random images that they like. For instance a small dog, moustache and Wombles!!! Yes!! I loved drawing the murals.

This is my piece for Not For Rental exhibition. I choose "Freaks" by Tod Browning. 1930's classic horror film.

Not For Rental project along with several hundred illustrators and artists. We were asked to come up with a VHS box design for a film, but NOT include the film title in it.
The exhibition is at The Church of London, 71a Gallery until Saturday 13th July when they go on sale.
