Oconnell on his illustration..."Recently, I was lucky enough to hold my first ever solo illustration exhibition. Out of everything I've done in my career so far, I can safely say it was the most nerve-wracking experience - but the most valuable one.

This particular piece is based on the Eagle Nubulae

"From doing the show I was able to gain critique on a new level. One of the things I learnt was the different ways people were interpreting my work - some viewed the pieces purely on their colour attributes and others mainly around their conceptual elements. Being able to gain this external insight into my work has evolved my approach more than I could ever imagine.

"I wanted to capture this thinking through this piece, echoing my passion for the surreal movement with a hint of sci-fi and the questioning of the elements around us. With every piece I create, I tend to treat them as an individual colour study, this particular one is based on the Eagle Nubulae (opens in new tab)."
