News

So I am free to announce now, that I did not win the Children's Book Council of Australia's Crichton Award for a first time children's book illustrator, I was in the top six finalists. I was informed about a month ago but couldn't say anything. So now I'm just looking forward to my runner up certificate to arrive, so I can post it up for all to see.

At the moment I haven't got any time to do my own sketches as I'm busy painting background's for The Mollusk's web series and designing characters for my Cartoon Network mini-bible. Of course this means I don't have time for much paid work, but when your so busy doing something you enjoy from home, who cares right?...right?!

Ive also sent off a manuscript for a picture book to Scholastic, fingers crossed someone gets back to me with some promising news in the future.

Back to the drawing board...the second illustration is a concept that came out tonight, totally wrong for what im doing but I liked him, so I though Id share...must have needed to draw how I felt at the time.

Virgin Australia

 












No art this week as Im busy on Maik's Mollusks project...but here (above) is another commercial I popped up in. Im the blurry one on the right in a brown dress, advertising Virgin Australia's Melbourne Lounge...this will probably be the only time in my life ill be in a business lounge, unless I can make a project happen. The full commercial is here.
This other picture is just something silly I did for a True Blood blog & needed somewhere to host it...just ignore it.
