This was a solid amount of time and enjoyment that I pulled together for this private commission. I was tasked to craft a dreamlike compilation of oceanic and urban themes.
I took the lifestyle of my collaborator and combined elements from their life into the artwork to be a time capsule of their life so far.
The ingredients of this piece encourages you to dive deeper into different parts each time you see it. Like an ocean voyage, you never know what you'll discover each time you look into it.
I was commissioned to design this graphic or a client to be a motivational poster. The worn out looking werewolf was a reminder to the audience to keep themselves in the game and continue with their goals. I made use of the midnight blue to contrast the light sources.
I wanted to create a poster that encouraged people to get out there and take charge of their lives while keeping a simple motto in mind. Go Make Some Stories encourages you to leave your comfort zone in order to come out the other side with a great tale.
A fruity poster design I was comissioned to create as a strange but engaging bright vibrant way to light up a room.
I recently went to the Denver Art Museum to see an exhibition on samurai. When I learned that a large number of them were Buddhists I tried to show that fierce, yet peaceful mindset visually through my own psychedelic surrealism.
I wanted to make something fun for my mates involved in the Wax Lab event held in Sydney. They regularly meet to exchange records, play vinyl with each other and talk shop. The vibe is always so friendly and playful so I wanted to make a poster that engaged with that summer vibe.
The Spiderfan has a history, but is it a pleasant or dark past?
I was asked to be part of the Exhibition Supervene for Sydney's dynamic printer Steve from Arcade Printing in Newtown. Our task was to create a superhero print that twisted the normal iconography of the heroes or villains we chose. I plucked Spiderman out of my memories.
I always had a good time with spiderman and his battles as a kid.
My first screen printed poster! Hand printed locally at Arcade Screen Printing in Sydney. The three colour print was designed for the Rock Screen Print Poster Exhibition. I thought what was the strangest place to wake up after a rocking night out? Available for purchase as a Limited Edition Print over in my shop.
I sat in my urban art studio and sipped on a warm morning coffee the other day and wished I had a more dense, lush green workspace to relax in. I fawned over the idea of hearing tropical birds singing in the morning mist.
So I decided to make myself a poster for my wall which would give me the sense of natural immersive greenery for my studio space.
If you want to add this splash of colour to your own space at home or work, art prints are available to purchase over at my Society6 Store.
These friendly penguins were a commissioned artwork I was tasked with for an anniversary gift. We figured out all the special items from the big day and the trip they took for their honeymoon too.
I had a great time drawing in all the beachy summer holiday objects and things.
I had a great time stashing away all the objects and items for this commissioned Find-A-Thing. Seeing how all the little pieces come together is a real treat, because in the process of creating them I get a sense of the person that they are being made for.
It is a very personal process, like crafting a moodboard of a person's interests.
I was commissioned to draw a phoenix and I took the opportunity to try out hand colouring the work without the crutch of photoshop.
An illustrated poster I designed for the greyhound races in Sydney
I drew these masks as a series for my solo exhibition in 2013 held at Blacklisted Gallery in Sydney. They were a representation of an organic process. I started with drawing the animal in the forehead and then let the ideas of the animals guide the actual form.
I had a great time playing with the composition for this commissioned piece. It's such an interesting process to put together all the items and objects listed in the brief.
There is a large volume of plastic debris which is spiralled into one enormous area in the Pacific ocean by ocean currents. I wanted to chip away at creatingawareness for the Pacific Garbage Patch .
I created a series of animals and imagined this patch as a landmass. The animals are all made out of plastic and discarded objects.
