The Bad Mother

Such a treat to work with my wife, illustrator Jacqui Oakley, on this poster for Pollinator Films‘ The Bad Mother. It was a blast to work with David and Sarah from Pollinator, who gave us an incredible amount of creative freedom to interpret their film. Jacqui’s portrait of Sarah in her role as Tara form the film is so spot-on! I added colour digitally to the ink illustration and created the hand-lettering used for the title.

A fitting project to collaborate on, as the film follows a professional woman in her mid-thirties who is struggling with balancing career and family – a scenario Jacqui and I were becoming familiar with via our (at the time) brand-new little boy.
