It's a Chicken!

Here's a comission for one of my regular clients in-store promotion.

It's a chicken...a big chicken.

I'm currently working on their next promo and i've got 4 posters to do, so I'll share them when I can.

Australian Creative Magazine Cartoons

I have a regular gig doing a cartoon for one of the columnists in Australian Creative Magazine (advertising industry mag). I've had the job for a while and a few months back the column changed authors and the new author was looking for a new style to represent his writing.

He mentioned Ralph Steadman as a guide. I was so happy that I jumped aboard with a Steadman rip off and they were happy. Since then I 've been working with that style and trying not to make it too much of a rip off, but generally I don't care - Steadman is such a legend I have too much fun trying to work like him.

The other bonus is that the artwork is done with brush and ink (finished in PS) - something I'm not great at but love to do, it makes me feel like a real artist.

The "Bit List" Addition

After my honeymoon in Thailand I can add jelly fish to the bit list.

One Hell of a busy couple of months

It's been a busy couple of months, I finished landscaping my house, got married, and went on a honeymoon to Thailand. My work had to squeeze in between all of the above...which I kind of managed.

It was a great couple of months and coming out the other end I'm back in a position to work freely and effectively, the first time since we started building the house over a year ago.

This means more posts on the blog and less time crying in the corner of my studio trying to figure out how to get it all done, YAY!
