I worked with Whalerock Industries in West Hollywood to create an illustration of Kendall Jenner to be featured on her popular app.
I worked closely with Smith Street Books to illustration 60 spritz cocktails for their title Spritz Fever! Each illustration was based on a recipe by Melbourne based mixologist - turned culture writer Eloise Anders.
The 60 spritz recipes in hardcover Spritz Fever! celebrate the most popular cocktail style of the decade. Seeing as most spritzes are low(ish) in alcohol content (well, certainly lower than wine anyway), they’re the ideal companion for any day drinking event. Plus, as most Instagram feeds can attest, spritzes aren’t just a drink… They’re a lifestyle. These bubbly wonders speak to careless Italian summers, spent reclining by the beach in fine and flowing linen.
What can be so easy to forget is that spritzes are so much more than just Aperol and bubbles. In this book, you’ll learn about the classic European liqueurs, like Cynar, Campari, Luxardo Bitter, Meletti, and more. Moreover, you’ll discover the textural nuances between prosecco, cava and Champagne. Plus, read up on how citrus garnishes can be matched to each drink’s flavour profile, and, of course, colour. Above all, follow the perfect ratio of liqueur-to-bubbles for each recipe. Spritz Fever! explains all of this, alongside its dreamy illustrations.

As well as the giant Lavazza cup and café wall mural, I illustrated the Lavazza logo, invitation for the breakfast and coasters.
