Set of four illustrations for musician Alexis Bennett

 

Studio

 

Earlier in the year I produced at set of four illustrations which aimed to show different aspects of Alexis Bennett’s work. Alexis is an amazing musician who (many years ago now) went to the same school as me! He’s a composer, lecturer and plays many instruments and performs various different styles of music. We had a lot of fun with these illustrations making them quite personal and getting lots of details about Alexis’s life and interests in there, so I’m really excited to be able to show them now!

The illustrations have been used on his brand new website (which is still under construction but looking pretty good already.) Website design is by Adrian Hedgecock. Find out more about Alexis and his music at his new site http://alexisbennett.co.uk
