They say that in life to be happy is to appreciate the little things, but shorely that can include this outwardly fashionable largish piggy. I bumped into James and his owner one sunny morning in Sydney’s Redfern as they were off for there mornings stroll to feed on some delicious pastries. Needless to say I [...]
Many fathoms ago, dinner time was yummy time. As kids, we were allowed to scoop, chew, swallow and repeat. Fast track a few years later and this hungry happy go lucky lad has found the ultimate chowdown party plate. Designer Boguslaw Sliwinski has cleverly produced ceramic plates of sporting figures on which cut fruit becomes a whole new flavour of fun.
Micro-sculptor Mr. Peluche sure does get me hot under the collar. Peluche, a Berlin street musician, wields his magicians wand and magically captures scenes of street sex that unfold right under ones’ nose. Appealing for their comedic value, his detailed snaps always deserve that second glance, even for those less perverted. Well done, Mr. Peluche, [...]
This week was an interesting one. After being invited to design an illustrated t shirt for Made in The Now, I was over the moon. Made in The Now is a Brisbane company who release prints based on a top news headline pick of the week. I worked up a concept inspired by the recent [...]
The last few years my life have changed drastically. Among the many changes, I traveled abroad for the first time, and in doing so, I found new places to call home.

My favourite illustration would have to be Sierra for the simple reason being I love boats!
Toasty toast and melty cheese was always a favourite growing up. Sometimes alone, but mostly together, this happy couple created what is formerly known as the Jaffle. Many years have past since my last Jaffle, a delicious savoury snack that was at times a sweet toothed desert. Thankfully the wait is over as Sydney’s own [...]
I have always been a fan of hedge sculpting, a practice performed by gardeners whereby many hours of training and cutting are invested to create something usually beautiful and unique. Having spotted this in my locale, I began to wonder why one would blatantly give passers by the good old one fingered salute? I am not [...]
I first saw the work of William Kentridge many years ago at Annandale Galleries here in Sydney. I was captivated by his aesthetic which meanders through various drawn, sculptured, filmed and animated mediums. So when I discovered his “Five Themes” exhibition was traveling through Melbourne after showing at New York’s Moma gallery I made sure [...]
