SUNNY SIDE UP!


Another piece for SooJin at Plansponsor. The brief was simply "Optimism" so I sent in a few ideas including a half full/half empty glass but we ended up going with this one. The bright side of the moon. It seems I can't keep away from space themes or blue and yellow at the moment.

BLATHER


Thought I'd post a recent illo I did for a great A.D. who looks out for us illustrators, Sheree James from "The Deal". That's not to be confused with US publication of the same name. The article was all about that horrible biz-speak that people like to use to make dull stuff sound important.

9X5


Here's my entry for this year's Illustrators Australia 9X5 exhibition. The theme this year is "20" as it's the association's 20th birthday. This one was inspired by vintage cigarette paper designs. French to be precise!

Jacky Winter


Good news everyone! Fantastic "new Australian agent on the block" Jacky Winter has been kind enough to invite me onto their books. It's humbling to be counted amongst the ranks of such a great bunch of artists. Let's cross our fingers that I can still find time to blog while pumping out five figure jobs for Apple and Coca Cola huh? You can check out all the great illustrators on the Jacky Winter site here: http://www.jackywinter.com/

The Cuban Connection



Here's my piece for "The Cuban Connection" exhibition opening on the 13th at Gorker Gallery.
Everyone was given a cigar box to work with. I love South American loteria cards so I used that as my starting point. Get along to the opening if you're in Melbourne. The show is curated by Timba at Wooden Toy mag.

Recent Stuff For PlanSponsor and PlanAdvisor



Here are a couple of recent jobs for SooJin at PlanSponsor Mag. I'm a big fan of her mininal, succinct art direction. I was sure she wouldn't let all the blood and guts go to print in the Mauled image but instead she said "Go for it!". She's cool.

Preece wine label


Keep an eye out at the local for the new range of Preece wines using images on the label by some of my favourite Australian illustrators. I was lucky enough to be asked by Ethos Design to provide the art for Rose. AND it tastes good.
