I had the pleasure of being commissioned to install a piece of artwork in Sheffield's iconic venue The Leadmill. The mural sits on the mezzanine level overlooking the dancefloor.
Each panel of the work encapsulates something different about The Leadmill spirit and it's place in Sheffield.
The work nods to their live music, comedy, and club nights, as well as their heritage as a venue about to celebrate its 40th birthday!

A fun and educational interactive print, showing the user how simple parallel circuits work.
Using conductive ink the user draws circuitry in the panel on the robots chest.
Then once the circuit is completed his eyes light up and he comes to life!

I am an Illustration student currently studying at Sheffield Hallam University. Inspired by the theme 'Up There' I have illustrated a series of Flying Machines, representing a personal homage to the history of humanities crazy obsession with flying. The examples in my design are imaginary, who knows if they would ever work in real life?
