Stone on his wallpaper..."There was no highbrow intention behind the illustration, really. I made it in 2009 at weekends, partially to test my abilities but mainly for fun.
"When it comes to illustration I like blending together certain themes, objects and imagery until they naturally co-exist in one image. Here, my chosen themes were music and plants, so I started working on a focal point that combined both the flower gramophone and the hummingbird and built the rest of the composition around it.
"Overall I like my illustrations to be playful, colourful and vibrant with perhaps a few emotional undertones. I don't really want to baffle people with complex ideas, but I'd like them to at least find my illustrations compelling on some level!"
