Illustrator +Artistic director
Rawling’s universe combines the fantasy of Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak, the sketchy realism of Quentin Blake, the gothicism of Hieronymus Bosch and the poise of Alexander Calder’s sculptures. It feels like being taken into your eccentric uncle’s yurt in Dorset so he can show you what he’s been up to. The cumulative charm is akin to the best children’s books or the earliest cinema and zoetrope, providing the perfect salve for all us fluro-overloaded technophobes. Who’d have thought the zeitgeist would be so spartan?
A musician with an interest in working to picture amongst other things. A guitar player and multi-instrumentalist, I also use electronics to create rhythm and texture, my compositions are informed experiences of jazz groups, symphony orchestras, americana, japanese hip hop, guitar pop, electronica, improvisation and live soundtracks. To date, I’ve collaborated on six scores for The Paper Cinema and have also produced music and sound design for Bristol Old Vic, Battersea Arts Centre, PRS Sound Foundation, Channel 4 and Future Shorts.
