Pinup Artwork

I've always been a massive fan of that retro style pinup, and decided to mix it with tattoo art and see what I'd come up with. This is something I'm going to follow up and improve on, with more girls as time goes on, so watch this space!

Hero Ping

I've just been working on giving the company Hero Ping a new look by creating two super hero characters to be the face of the company. I then put these characters into a new website banner and 3 icon images for 'News', 'F.A.Q.', and another more general one.
As time goes, these heroes will turn into long term characters that represent the company, hopefully with a comic-style storyline that'll give them some background!

The German Club decided to go for a different look in the end, so I designed this revamped version without an image.

Basketball Jersey

My basketball team, the Stealth Katz, was sick of wearing white bonds singlets with the numbers scribbled on in permanent markers, so we thought it was time to splash out on uniforms and get an image to suite the name. Here's what I came up with, with some creative direction from the lads.

Here's some of what I've been working on for the coming German Schutzenfest festival, which is held in Adelaide annually. All designs are still drafts, showing: Banner, Poster, fold-up Program (outside and inside) and proposed t-shirt designs.

Earth Friendly

Showing a bit of process and the final of a poster design aimed at the everyday person to think about what relatively simple changes they can make to help clean up our mess. Sketch & Photoshop.

Patient Geisha

A fairly quick rendering of a drawing I did a while back of two Geishas. I chose the sepia style overlay to give the sense of the history involved in this part of Japanese culture. Sketch & Photoshop.

Fuji Rain Dance

My motivation behind this piece of art was to use the basic shapes in the layout of Hokusai's most famous Ukiyo-e print, The Great Wave of Kanagawa (see top image) with Mt. Fuji in the background. Sketch & Photoshop.
84 x 120cm

There's one behind you!!

Here's a side project I've been working on, with the obvious theme of zombies in the dark, but in a graphic novel type flavour! Sketch & Photoshop.

Red Riding Hood - Rendered

So, it's been a while since I've put any updates up, so here's the final outcome of the Red Riding Hood sketch. Sketch & Photoshop.

Red Riding Hood

This is the sketch I came up with from a few concept thumbnails of mine for a Red Riding Hood piece. It's a work in progress and I have other work on my plate at the moment, so I'll update you all on how this turns out in the near future!

M-16 Bomber Pinup

Got the pinup girl finished on illustrator today, and added some nice texture to give it the old touch it needed. Sketch & Illustrator.

M-16 Fightwear Clothing

Been working on a set of designs for an upcoming fightwear clothing brand 'M-16 Fightwear', so it's all still a work in progress. I'm really excited about this one as I've been given full creative licence to come up with whatever I think will look good! Sketch & Photoshop/Illustrator.

Gift Voucher Design

Had the beauty spa 'Accent on Beauty' ask me to come up with some interesting earthy-styled designs for the front of their gift certificates. This is what I came up with for them.

Here's a quick sketch I thought I'd put into Illustrator and colour up. Just something light hearted and fun... Add Image

Playing cards

I've always wanted to create a set of illustrated playing cards with a different design for each card in the pack. So here's a start, the Queen of Hearts. Hope to one day take them to a printing company and sell them by the dozen!

Loosening up!

Hi everyone, got another drawing. No reference; well the face was Very loosely based on a MGS character Emma Emmerich... Concentrating on not being so uptight in linework and create a little more dimension to character and mood. Looks kind of like a life-drawing model sketch...

Poster Art

Poster artwork for a music producer Dumble-D, he wanted to go for the old school horror movie-type feel, so this is what I came up with.

Acrylic Self Portrait

This is a self portrait I did a year or so ago. It was done in acrylic paints, I didn't get around to finishing the hands and a couple of small details, but i was pretty excited with the way it turned out. Something I'm going to start working on again soon hopefully.

Just Taking the Koala For A Walk

Saw an interesting looking old fella walking down the street, so I thought I'd draw him up when i got home. I thought it'd be a bit generic if he was walking a dog, plus he seems to suit the koala.
