Produced in conjunction with the Jacky Winter Group and Thames and Hudson, I got to interpret the iconic emu for this ‘Greetings from Australia’ sticker book- in a scene inspired from trips through Woomera and further into Western Australia. I used a combination of collage (cut up newspapers), paint, and digital brushes and textures.
I remember back in my design college days, I actually set myself a stamp series as an assignment , and as a kid I subscribed to the Stamp Bulletin and collected first day covers and presentation packs – so in a way it was finally a ‘dream’ come true.
My piece for the 2015 Illustrators Australia 9×5 exhibition was inspired by kitten observations and is entitled “It’s all Fun and Games until Someone Loses an Eye”
This piece featured in Risographica 3- a group show at Lamington Drive in Collingwood. Every few years they invite artists to create artwork for a ‘Risograph’ – which is a kind of a newfangled / oldfangled copy machine with limited but seemingly crazy colours.
Something a bit different in conjunction with the Australian release of Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’. In keeping with the ‘Keane theme’, it also has been the first time in a long time that I have used no Photoshop for a published artwork…
