Process: primarily working digitally with a focus on narrative, character and handmade textures; I also champion the bespoke process of linocut printmaking for certain projects.

Turnaround times: digital process is fast and comfortable under deadline-induced constraints - ideal for editorial and reportage. Linocut is more bespoke but takes longer due to cutting/inking/drying times.
