Featured on Bespoke + Bespoke calendar!

The lovely Jess, who puts together the Bespoke zine has created a 2013 calendar, featuring the work of 12 Australian artists. Each month features an illustration of a lady, and I'm happy to say my illustration "The Chaperone" is Miss January! (That bear needs a Miss January sash)

The calendar was successfully crowd-funded and reached it's funding mark a few days ago! There's still 24 hours to donate on pozible, if you'd like a copy of the calendar for $15. After that, it will be sold at $20 + shipping.

Jess has been profiling the artists on Bespoke, and I was featured last week, so pop over to the blog to check it out.


2013 calendars are here!

Lady of Rock - 2013 Calendar - and my very small feet

A new year is almost upon us (whaaaaat?), and my 2013 calendars are here!

For the last 2 years I've made mini pocket calendars, and a few people had requested a larger size, so this year I thought I'd try something different. 
I made three A3 size calendar posters, printed on a lovely, heavy recycled card stock. I was so excited when I got these back from the printers. The colours have turned out great! 
Each of these calendars comes in a limited edition of 15. Yep! Once they're gone they won't be reprinted.

The designs are Lady of Rock (above), Bird Radio (below), and The Connoisseur (at the bottom).
What kind of calendars do you prefer? Larger wall calendars, or mini calendars for your desk? 
Or perhaps just the calendar in your phone?

Song Kong

Just wanted to share this fun project I recently finished - illustration, branding and business card design for Song Kong Music Supervision! 
What is music supervision you ask? It's a film industry role, overseeing the music that's used in movies or TV shows. Awesome job, right? That calls for some awesome cards.
Debra was the loveliest client, and we went through a couple of concepts before selecting this happy, ukelele-twanging fella.


This Is Melbourne Exhibition

I was recently invited to participate in a group exhibition called 'This is Melbourne', as part of the Fringe Festival.
It opened last week, and is on until October 13, so get down to The Bella Union bar in the Trades Hall to check out some art! There are some amazing illustrators involved, such as Shaun TanAndrea InnocentLouise Kyriakou, and Laura Wood.

I think one of Melbourne's defining characteristics is its amazing music scene, so I illustrated Melbourne as a Lady of Rock. Damn right she is!
The Trades Hall is also one of the first venues I ever played in, as a wee teenager in a rock band. We supported Melbournian/Japanese punk band Mach Pelican, who modelled themselves on the Ramones. It was a hot, loud, black t-shirt heaven, and we loved it. A perfect venue to hang this piece in.
