I found a Scrubs DVD the other day...4 hours later I realized I had'nt moved from the couch! Although it wasn't a productive night, I coupled it with a few ink drawings of the character with the most interesting face and personality...Ted.

4 Wheel Drive

I've just come back from a weekend hiking trip in the Flinders Ranges where I got to test out my new boots. We walked through water, mud and grass. We climbed boulders and scrambled up rocky cliffs. All of this was possible (or at least easier) with my cool new boots which don't look very new anymore.

Pop Asia

It seems that most Saturdays I find myself watching SBS Pop Asia, an hour long program dedicated to the best pop music videos from around Asia. I don't know why I enjoy it so much but I have a feeling it's to do with the incredible amount of effort each artist puts into making their hair look so perfect. Maybe it's also the cheesy, sometimes nonsensical storylines that follow the music. Anyway, this is my tribute.

3 Style

In an effort to experiment and push my style as an illustrator, I created 3 illustrations of the same character in different styles. It pushed me a little further from my comfort zone and taught me a few new tricks which I'm hoping will add something fresh to my work.

The first illustration was done with ink and brush in a comic style similar to alternate American comics. I was pretty comfortable with this style but adjusting to the bold line work took some getting used to.

The second illustration was done entirely in Photoshop but made to look like cut paper and pastel. This is a style that I always find in Disney and Dreaworks "Art Of" books; it seemed like it would be the easier of the 3 but turned out to be the hardest.

The last illustration was a simple graphite sketch with basic flat colours, similar to the Gorillaz characters created by Jamie Hewlett. I learned something new with each style and look forward to where it leads.
