ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Cameron.

I am a freelance Illustrator & Designer working primarily within the music industry.

After graduating from studying Illustration at Arts University Bournemouth, I’m now based in London and work frequently with the likes of So Young Magazine, Chess Club Records, The 100 Club, Team Management, Dirty Hit Records and many other artists and independent businesses and venues. 

I’ve produced artwork, posters and music videos for the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, The Vaccines, The Wombats, Black Honey, The Charlatans, Sports Team, Alfie Templeman and many many more 

(full list available here).

 

I work in various mediums including retro-infused psychedelic illustrations, mixed-media collage and pop art, whilst taking inspiration from artists such as Peter Blake, Tadanori Yokoo and Milton Glaser. 

Though I work mainly digitally across Photoshop & ProCreate I have a penchant for aging my designs with a wide arsenal of paper textures and distressing techniques to emulate the gritty imperfections of the handprinted posters and artworks of yesteryear. 

 

I can often be found lacing his work with symbolism, easter eggs and recurring motifs so that regardless to how often my visual style may change (which is very often) there remains these  little breadcrumbs tying my portfolio together. These breadcrumbs can include certain numbers, words, phrases, colours and objects, most notably the number 43 and my pessimistic, signature motto ‘Give Up On Your Dreams’. 

 

I feel I always work best when working on multiple projects at a time; the ability to bounce between them always keeping my mind fresh and focused. As well as meeting their briefs, from logos to posters to animated music videos, I always go the extra mile to supply all clients with an extensive range of additional promotional materials. I try to emphasise the importance of consistency in design across social media and building brand/band identity. 

 

Since graduating I have returned on occasion to Arts University Bournemouth to give lectures and run workshops on design in the music industry. I will return in spring 2023 with So Young Magazine to run further workshops/talks on design in the music industry.

Though my first love is and remains to be illustration & design I also occasionally dabble in film, animation, videography and live music photography.

 

I spent my childhood editing videos and making films. From stop-motion animations to filming my friends at the skatepark, I have always enjoyed creating and editing content. I am competent in many production techniques and have created videos for magazines, musicians and companies, big and small. I have also gained experience creating videos to specifications of VEVO and TV as well as creating gifs and optimising video content for social media. I have directed, animated, edited or worked on multiple music videos for bands including

Sports Team, Alfie Templeman, SKATERS, Pip Blom, FUR, Bloxx and many more...

 

I've worked a lot with award-winning writer/director Edward Zorab and have played key-roles in his broad portfolio of short films and music videos including Production Designer for Junk Mail (2017) starring Joe Wilkinson and Thomas Gray and Animator/Graphic Designer for viral hit music video for 'Him & Her' for the band FUR.

 

I wrote, directed and starred in my own first short film in the spring of 2018; ‘Shooting Up’, a mixed-media, dark comedy satirising 80’s children’s TV. This piece aided me in earning both a first class honours degree in Illustration when I graduated from Arts University Bournemouth and also being awarded that year's Tutors Choice Award.

I have also shot festivals and gigs for So Young Magazine and Fred Perry Subculture

 

I enjoy and have conducted numerous interviews for various video projects, including chatting to bands like Working Men's Club and The Magic Gang for So Young Magazine, quizzing Jeff Horton (owner of The 100 Club) for Independent Venue Week or on one occasion even interviewing Sir David Attenborough at a book launch! 

I also write occasionally for So Young Magazine both in digital and print.

In October 2022 I put on my first solo exhibition and curated gig at The Sebright Arms in London and it was a raging success and everyone gave me a high five. 

 

I can often be found working in Shoreditch or from my home in East London

and I attend multiple live shows a week. 

I am a member of/represented by the Association of Illustrators and my Folio can be seen here.

 

I’m always looking to work with bands/companies that align closely with my own areas of interest across design, fashion, music, culture and humour. Please get in contact if you think I'd be right for an upcoming project or if you'd like to find out more about my work and rates.
