Friday fun times!

Here's a illo I did as a bit of fun, mainly to have more of a play aournd drawing fur, which sucks.  I usually just use basic PS brushes to paint but I enlisted the help of one of Chris Wahl's custom PS brushes ) that he has kindly made up for all of us to download for free) for the bulk of the fur.

What a lovely chap.

idle hands...

I had a quiet day on Friday, waiting for clients to get to me with feedback, so the latent narcisist in me made me do a self portrait.

It was done on PS, and all on the one layer, except for the late addition of the well arty sploshes and spots.  nice.

The 3 Beardos...

I just got a hard copy of this in the mail today.  It's a caricature by Jason Chatfield of Himself, Anton Emdin, and Me that's been used in the latest Inkspot magazine as the title image for our combined journal of the Reuben Cartoon Awards in Boston in May...

I didn't think of it at the time but we did all have facial hair of varying degrees of success in Boston...In the image you can clearly see Anton holding up his award for growing the only real beard...congrats.

New Cover

Here's the cover of the latest Australian Cartoonist Association Magazine "Inkspot" featuring my caricature of Reuben Award winning illustrator and drinking buddy Anton Emdin.

It's come up alright...

Website Illustrations

I worked with a local company RPS Industries as they overhauled their website.  It's gone live so I guess I'm allowed to show some of what I did for them.  It involved cartoons for buttons and then larger illustrations that needed to be like jigsaw puzzles to allow for mouse hover functions to select different elements.  It was a bit fiddly, but it seems to have worked.

2011 Stanley Award Submissions

This is the post to show the work that I've submitted for the 2011 Stanley Awards .  If you've dropped by from the year book, it appears I spelled the link correctly!  Below are my two submissions for Carictaure and Media Graphic Artist repectively. 

I realised when I was putting my submissions together that I'd actually done a lot of the Media Graphic stuff this year through posters, graphic facilitation and website illustration, when I hadn't done much of it before.  It's funny how that happens!  The post above this one shows some illustrations that I did for a website that has now gone live, so check that out too...
