We pitched 4 different concepts for the flyer for this years Annual Scientific Meeting hosted by the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons & The Association of Laparoscopic Theatre Staff of Great Britain & Ireland. This was their chosen concept – a vintage style illustration based on a comic book from the 1960s. The flyer received great feedback for its fun take on the event.
Forget the box sets, my current TV obsession: Tales of the Unexpected. The past IS a different country, it seems. Especially the mistress-keeping, fine wine-sloshing, greedy, selfish 1980s. Proper bonkers. #talesoftheunexpected#theeighties

Not all of Roald Dahl's stories were for children. He also channelled his love of the macabre into a series of short stories for adults.
Collections such as Skin, Someone Like You & Tales of the Unexpected are just a few of the many publications bringing together Roald Dahl's more nerve-shredding tales.
Of course, plenty of his children's stories have scarier elements too, as this 1996 artwork by Ralph Steadman shows with its depiction of James and the Giant Peach characters combined with photographs of Roald Dahl's writing hut.
