Wacom Product Launch

I was lucky enough to be involved in the Wacom Intuos 4 launch in Melbourne last week. I was the artist on the night and used the new tablet to whip up a caricature of Hugh Hefner in about 90 minutes while the tablet was launched. It's a painting I'm working on in my spare time, but I took this opportunity to give the colouring a run through.

It was a great event and even greater because the kind hearted people at Wacom gave me an Intuos 4 as payment, and it rules.

Even though I was on my best professional behaviour (sober) I will review the event as is traditional here on the blog.

Level of Work: Not too shabby!
Venue: Belgian Pub on Southbank, can't get much better.
Nibblies: From what I saw/smelt they were excellent. Stand out were mini hotdogs in mini buns, with mini mustard squirted on top.
Number of Free Drinks: Open bar, all the trapist beer you could want. I had none...

Kevin Rudd unveiling

Here's the full verison of the Kevin Rudd caricture snippet I posted a couple of weeks ago. The campaign is now on so I can post the full image. It's nice to work on something as ridiculous as this and the client sent me through a full size (1.8 x 1m) print which is great.

I put it up on the wall but me fiance made me take it down...

Pencil Sketch

I know it's imperative to do some sketching everyday, and I do but it's mostly work related warm ups, so to have the luxury of sitting down and just doodling for the sheer pleasure has been great in the last couple of weeks.

Here's a quick sketch I did over the weekend of architectural mad man Frank Lloyd Wright.
