As part of my project on Visual Narrative, I explored the docklands of London, this led my to discover a variety of lost stories about a hamlet called Ratclif during the early Victorian era. My final project resulted in a series of etchings, all drawn and printed myself, which were displayed on a concertina to emphasise that they could be view as part of a whole story but also individually.
A Brochure piece created for a Museum Gallery, the brief was to create a map that linked three sites together and encouraged visitors to go to all three.
A piece drawn for my brother (https://838reuben.wix.com/reubenhaydenphotos) as a present.
I love Samurai, so this was something I drew just for fun, I really experimented with coloured line art in this drawing.
A Character development piece for a graphic novel I’m currently illustrating.
These two pieces hold sentimental value as they picture a special place. I wanted to reflect the excitement and turbulence of a new relationship in the movement of the picture.

It’s good to practise something new, so as to develop my landscapes I have done a few studies. This one is of a Japanese garden and similar to the style of my most recent pieces I have tried to keep the colour simple.
I wanted this piece to be well balanced and calm.
‘Feng Shui Garden’
Inspired by an anime series called ‘Legend of Korra’; I created my own ‘Water-bender’. Named Kesuka, which means Watery Sky, she is able to manipulate the element of water. It’s a bit geeky but I love it.
