Sound Check

I took my sketchbook with me to a Fringe music show called Vane of Barbs and had a few moments to draw the drum kit during soundcheck. I've always had a fascination with drum kits, all the slight adjustments and fine tuning that can be done on each stand and drum make up some real interesting shapes that are really fun to draw. Got a few strange looks from audience members who must have thought I was reviewing the show, hehehe, I guess I was in my own way.

Jazz Cat

The past few months I've been creating some minicomics in secret and tested a lot of new techniques and refined some old ones. It's been a really cool experience making pages that don't really have to make any sense and creating bucket-loads of characters that don't have to be constantly refined or ever introduced in a second issue. For this comic I wanted to see if I could create some interesting perspectives in each cell and capture some of this cool cats cheeky nature.

Biker 30

My brother recently turned 30, so to celebrate I created an illustration for him that would capture his love for motorbikes and skeletons, while also incorporating the number 30 somehow. The above illustration is the result. Rather than my usual half digital process of colouring, I created the picture all by hand and transferred it to a piece of wood and put a simple frame around it which was the icing on this birthday cake.

CFS Breakfast

I recently illustrated a poster for The Piccadilly Kitchen to advertise a fundraiser for the CFS (Country Fire Service). A group of cafes around the Adelaide hills hosted free breakfasts for all CFS volunteers in recognition of the days they spent fighting the fires that swept through last month. Thanks to all members of the CFS for all your hard work.
