This commission originally had Steve Mcqueen to be depicted as a full body shot, split-down-the-middle fashion disaster on one side/ fashion icon on the other as the way to illustrate the "do's" and "don'ts" of mens fashion. I argued Steve McQueen, being a Mens Style kinda guy, should NEVER be anything but cool. So the guys in the lineup became the faceless fashion criminals and Steve the exemplar of mens' chic. The layout also allowed me to do a more detailed character study of a truly classic Hollywood star.

Clemenger BBDO Adelaide launched MAC South Australia's new Drink Driving campaign. All illustrations, custom typography and graphics were created by The Milk Agency. It was a fun project to be involved in as it's centered around mock beer labels with messages suggesting alternatives to driving home after a night of drinking. The illustrated labels have been made into coasters and distributed to Pubs in SA, along with the posters. You can view the TV ad at http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,27574,26066643-2682,00.html or read the Campaign Brief article at http://www.campaignbrief.com/2009/09/clemenger-adelaide-thinking-ab.html

Here's my entry for this year's Illustrators Australia 9x5 exhibition. The theme this year is "20" as it's the associations 20th birthday. This one was inspired by vintage cigarette paper designs. French to be precise! Any other Piglets got a plank to post?

I was a Sydney Child. Born and raised in North Epping but that was kind of like ages ago.
Sydney's Child has a cover done by me which is nice. I had to pick a colour that wasn't like previous ones, like blue (thanks Christopher!) well orange seemed to make sense, think of summer with that bushfire haze looming. Whacko the diddlio.
