ZAC Creative God Squad Project

Way back in late 2010, between illustrating the Monster Maintenance Manual and working on Little Johnny the Movie, I was hired as a character designer for a ZAC Creative production called God Squad. I really enjoyed it and I can finally share some clips of my designs in action. I designed all of the characters, main turnarounds and colour. I really love seeing them come to life, this was a great job to work on. There are some stills on the ZAC Creative site too (link).

Perth Awesome Arts Festival 2012

Earlier this year I was involved in creating this poster for the Awesome Arts Festival. I didn't design the original characters, but had to illustrate them in a new setting/layout and paint it in the right style for ZAC Creative. A fellow artist, Sandra Chiang, did some final touches to the paint job, when I had to pull out at the last minute to work on the pilot. Thanks Sandra!

Here is the animated commercial for the event by ZAC Creative.

Here are a couple of banners made up from the artwork I did.

Save the Koalas T-shirt Entry

Went a little 90's on it...apparently the 90's triangles I grew up with as a child have made a return, so I'll get in on that action. I made it a little in-joke on this little dude with the "free hugs", seeing as they give out hundreds of free hugs a week in this country.

In relation to koalas, this week in South Australia, there were some pretty bad bush fires and koalas are being treated to burns to their feet, paws, fur and general dehydration. It costs $130 a day for the AMWRRO to take care of them. So if you would like to help, head on over and make a donation for these poor dudes (link). By the way, Mike Tyson is afraid of them, check out this story from this week in Brisbane...and he owned three tigers. hehehe, love it!

Cheeky Koala

Here is a koala Im sketching up for a competition. I think I like the pupils in the left sketch better...and I'm missing a cheek line.
