this was a competition brief for the company "Hovis" the aim was to produce a product based on the Hovis brand that could be reproduced for under £20, i came up with the idea of a book so named "20 impractical uses for a loaf of Hovis" i tried to make it look like an old recipe book here are just a few illustrations from the book.

25 Inventions that didn't change the world






This is a book that i produced for my negotiated project entitled "25 Inventions that didn't change the world". i spent a week making up some pointless inventions that would have no practicle use in life and then began to illustrate them i started with 50 and cut it down to the 25 i liked best. there are some images here but to see the rest please use this link to go page by page through the book  http://www.blurb.com/books/1334148

Catalogue of Robots



These images are meant to be a humerus parody of 60's adverts and what people at the time thought would happen on the future with robots to do our bidding
