I was asked a few weeks ago to illustrate an article for The Guardian on Margaret Thatcher’s privatisation policies in the late 70s and 80s. As someone who’s grew up in Newcastle Upon Tyne and who’s dad worked in Swan Hunters shipyards as a teenager and then went on to become a fireman and staunch union member this particular article connected in more ways than one.

The first one is of Polish film director Walerian Borowczyk described by film critics as a 'genius who also happened to be a pornographer'.
Borowczyk’s films, which often look like a carefully animated paintings are invariably about sex, love and death. He was a surrealist and a provocateur and I wanted to communicate this within the illustration.
The next two are options that I did for the magazines cover of the new movie Boyhood. Its basically a coming-of-age drama directed by Richard Linklater which incredibly was shot intermittently over an eleven-year period from May 2002 to October 2013 as the main actor, Ellar Coltrane grew from childhood to adulthood. I wanted to communicate the complexities that this journey can often lead to so kept the the tones and textures quite dark while adding playful silhouettes of childhood to add balance. I also two images of Coltrane at the beginning and end of the process. The chosen cover was the simper version at the bottom.
