Unused spot illustration for a Hunter Valley Wines festival - they ended up going for a photographic approach.
Unused spot illustration for a Hunter Valley Wines festival - they ended up going for a photographic approach. These were my favourite boys!
Unused spot illustration for a Hunter Valley Wines festival - they ended up going for a photographic approach. My pitch was that the bus would look as though it was designed to match a line of milkshake cups.
Character design for a series of animations about severe asthmatics. If it were up to me, they'd all look like Soft Daniel.
Poster and program design for Bearfoot Theatre's 2018 show, Take Me To Neverland.
Poster design for Rare Finds' third birthday party show at the Oxford Art Factory, featuring the band Bootleg Rascal. This was a sequel to last year's birthday party poster with Hey Geronimo. Both posters had to feature the venue's iconic yellow striped pillars, and also debut the headlining band's new lineup, which meant I needed to actually research what instrument everyone was playing now. It is alarming to see how much better I got at colours in a year's time!
I have been producing a self-published comic series called Storm Clouds for several years - for more information, please check the comics section of this page, or the Storm Clouds website.
A cocktail collaboration between Rare Finds and Oporto for their shows in Melbourne and Sydney - it has a habanero in it!
Poster design for the 2017 Welcome To Sunnydale exhibition at Junky Comics in Brisbane
Variant cover for Matt Kyme's comic book series The Demon #4 - Captives of Colombo!
A superhero-themed design for Beep! Bicycle Bells. It really makes a ding!
Bonus: unused concept, deemed not colourful enough.
Various illustrated menu items for The Press Bookhouse, on Hunter Street. They are great friends and I love working for them.
In 2016, I worked on character design, puppet/asset creation and storyboarding for an (as of yet) unproduced animation pilot. The story followed a man working in a toy factory after awakening from a coma, unfamiliar with his strange co-workers and dangerous surroundings. One day, I'd love to see these guys in motion!
EP artwork for the rock band The Meantime. I had a lot of fun making textures for this one, and the band was extremely easy to work with.
Tribute poster for Nick Milligan's sci-fi novel Enormity, made as part of the Chasing Paper exhibition at the Renew Newcastle gallery in 2015
An interactive mural for The University of Newcastle's UON50 exhibition at Newcastle Museum - guests of the opening party were asked to tweet their visions for the future of education, for them to be live-drawn by me and Alexis Pepper. My favourite was the robot cleaner.
Illustrated portraits for every employee at a certain technology store in Charlestown Square.
Branding, illustration and character designs for Slice Virtual Golf, a bar on King St.
The Reunion was a rock and roll festival held on the Central Coast for three years, where a bunch of old bands did reunion sets alongside the new bands their members had started. I did all the artwork for the 2012 and 2014 shows, creating several characters that were blown up and used as stage backdrops, as well as promotional materials and merchandise.
In 2012, I designed several characters based on real-life members of Central Coast bands, with Danny DeVito on drums - the idea was that half of the members were coming out of retirement, and the other half were young rockstars. In 2014, the characters were a visual pun on the name "The Misfits" with the girl representing the Misfits from the cartoon Gem and The Holograms, and the boy representing the punk band The Misfits, like from the early 80's. Really, I just wanted to draw a keytar.
