Another mashup of ideas and favourite things. Inspired by Mononoke and Akira. How awesome would that anime be?!
Super fun gaming project for Killping gaming. The brief was to reference various MOO games all the while creating an original character.
Mashup and revamp of old school skate designs for Santa Monica Airlines's Natas pro model board designs.
Hero illustration and roll out to pack and print. A project focusing on the gaming power of the Microsoft Xbox 1X and looking some of the exclusive AAA games produced by Microsoft. As a gamer this is the kind of project you dream of and I had so much fun working on this project.
Work for Nike SB. Making the Nike Swoosh into a section of skatepark and streets, including a few of the main features of both these skate scenes. Also threw in a surf and snow themed even though Nike 6.0 is a thing of the past. was keen to explore how well the Swoosh could lend itself to slide sports.
Bit of mashup fun, crossing Dragon Ball Z villains with Star Wars Storm-troopers.
A goopy take on the awesome shelling sequence from Mamoru Oshii's 1995 Anime.

Having some fun with one of the best characters out there. Kick some ass Chun!!
Octopus for one of the themed rooms at the awesome Boogie Woogie Beach House Hotel. Thanks to Dave Craig!
Quick piece for a group show alongside some top artist in Sydney. The show was centred around raising funds for mental health research.
First go at producing artwork for screenprinting. The legends at Aisle6 in Sydney took care of the rest.
Another piece in the search for ways to explore the Old Vs new themes, in particular in Japanese culture.
Awesome and fun insta collaboration with US artist GLOB CDS.
It's Halloween so making some themed decks for Bones Brigade is a bit of no brainer...
Fat boy ramen poster just for fun and because it's well and truly ramen season here in Sydney. Nice to get back into a bit of poster design. Something pure about the format...
How do have your ramen? Tonkotsu? Tokyo style Shoyu? Extra egg goo? So many options to fill you with fatty goodness. Texture by the amazing Kindred Studio.
Awesome project I was lucky enough to work on with Adobe and the Sydney chapter of The Design Kids for the Creative Jam event. The brief here was pretty simple - "Creativity".
Special thanks to TDK champion Denise Chippindale and Cindy Chen at Adobe!
Getting back into some lettering is always fun. As well as getting back to my roots and some French cursing.
Goldfrapp - Supernature album cover. A project I'd love to see come to life!
Tribute piece to a legend on screen and in life.
A passion piece combining one of my fave shoes and fave artworks together. Using Hokusai's Wave to colour the kick along with the red and white of the Japanese flag.
Another piece I did for Microsoft Surface stand at the Adobe Make It 2017 event in Sydney. There was no theme here just a loose idea of how fluid the Surface Studio is and the colours I like to play around with.
Super 80s skater punk chick Brigitte Nielsen. 'Cause why not...
"Summer's not so hot" is a little piece in the new World Trump order - a comment on climate change and how our hedonistic ways are having a darker impact than we'd like to know. This was submitted for Semi Permanent design conference 2017 in Sydney, and was exhibited as a large scale print at the event under the "Design for Change" theme.
Special thanks to Thiago Nogueira from SemiPermanent and Emily-Jane Shurey from Moo.com.
A series of illustrations for SBS's Deepwater program. These were for a podcast running along side the TV release of the series on SBS. Thanks to Gina and Justin at SBS.
A bit of a Sergio Leone/Akira Kurosawa mash-up. Gotta love that epic tri-duel (truel?) scene! I think Tarantino would approve of this one...
A little homage to the legend and power of Metal guitar solos. For those who don't know, a Facemelter is a solo of such epicness as to melt one's face. Enjoy!
Number 2 in the series. One of my favourites - Takoyaki. Went a bit electric here as the natural colours made the image way too hard to register.
The first in a series looking at Cultures and food - and yes, goop... Went for the US first as it gave me the opportunity to drown the hotdog in ketchup and mustard - the way a hotdog should be! The blue inside makes no sense thematically and is just there for legibility's sake, and because why not...
A hand lettering/ illustrated type piece started ages ago in a workshop with Wayne Thompson from the Australian Type Foundry and only recently finished.
A little experiment in lighting, textures, and themes. Also sticking to the Akira vibe lately.
A new thing for me - starting to play around with animation. This one is for an AR print project that I worked on with Stu Campbell. Check out the full book and the impressive roter of artists and animators at https://www.facebook.com/groups/Prosthetic.Reality/?fref=nf
You'll nee to download the Eyejack app in order to view these!
Little hommage to Toriyama. Just a slightly punk version of his work. Taking some liberties 'n stuff.
More personal work. GoT had something to do with this one I think.
Decided to go all jelly on this bit of illustrated type. Went a bit crazy with Illustrator and Photoshop...
Messin' round with me new Cintiq - Voodoo style..
If Tarantino made a Star Wars flick. A bit of a Ashley Wood homage for this piece.
Just got back from Japan and decided to do a series of all my favourite things. First up is the deliciously molten hot octopus balls (not what you think).
A fun little illoed type commission based on the great Doors song mashed up with an Apocalypse Now vibe.
A bit of typography indulgence on this modern take on West Side Story
This one was done for Microsoft on their new Surface Studio PC. I don't usually work with these kind of themes but hey asked for an Australian themed illustration and I couldn't resist doing the punk bird gangs that are sulfur crested cockatoos.
