GPSO Cover

 This is an illsutration that I did for the GPS for your Organisation book. My brother Anthony is designing the layout. I feel a family business venture coming on....

Published in Uppercase

I am very excited today because I spotted my little illustration in Uppercase that I did with the help of Blake when I was sick in bed at the end of last year. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

STORY is open for trading!

The very clever Monique Germon has started this very elegant website. It is a treasure trove of lovely things for sale including my two new etchings 'My Year of Flying' and 'They Brought the City with Them.' Definitely have a look.

Recent Paintings

I realised that I haven't put up images of my recent paintings. The top one was a commission and the last three are for the show in Sydney in March. The last three are not quite finished. Actually the last one here is quite different now. I made the vessels more like ocean liners and there is more detail in the water. I will photograph the progress when I return to the studio on Thursday.

I can't stop thinking about the floods in Queensland. It is so horrific. I drew this little flooded house.

studio wednesday coffee break

I should just write a blog about take away coffee cups. I bought a keep cup the other day but keep forgetting to bring it to the studio. And anyway. I like keeping these cups to mix paint in... recycling right?!

In the studio today

Some new paintings of characters... slowly developing.

bespoke espresso

Morning coffee and painting before work. Blake discovered this coffee shop close to our place. Finally some great coffee shops popping up all over Richmond. Yum.
