With study over, I’ve been able to devote myself to these native flora and fauna illustrations for the City of Onkaparinga.
These will appear on signs in conservation parks. The final one was a treat, the shingleback lizard (far right). My brother and I used to keep them as pets!
After eighteen months of gruelling study, I got to walk across a stage in front of hundreds of strangers wearing a ridiculous hat. Made it all seem worthwhile.
Oh, and we had a baby girl a few weeks back. If you look closely, you can see her shapeless bulge above, hiding behind my degree. She’s called Guinevere, or Gwinny for short. She joins the rabble but makes numbers even, three boys and three girls. The symmetry of this pleases me immoderately.
I also did some chalk art with my bro-in-law recently, for his chalk signwriting business. Pretty cool. But I think he secretly just likes working in trendy cafés.
Plus I was privileged to be able to help out my friend and mentor, Ben Hatke (author of the Zita the Spacegirl trilogy), with some colour flatting for his latest graphic novel, Little Robot. It’s due for release in 2015.
I’m currently working on a new illustration featuring a claw machine and a thief. Progress pics soon.
Okay, thanks for reading! Have a fun day!
