We’re very thankful to our partners in their help putting this exhibition together; Spicers for providing the fantastic paper we’ll be printing with and Koskela who will be hosting the exhibition at their Rosebery Showroom on Saturday 22 September, 2012. “
I had the honour of illustrating the cover (Franco in Space) and inside illustration of the latest Fiction edition of The Big Issue (Australia). They have a story exclusively written for The Big Issue by hollywood actor and writer James Franco and well as new stories by Sophie Cunningham, Tony Birch and Andy Murdoch.
The theme for this issue is ‘2012, the end of the world’ and hits the streets at the end of the week, by buying a copy from your local vendor you are supporting the homeless and longterm unemployed, plus Tony Birch’s story is about a magic foreskin. If that doesn’t make you want to buy a copy I don’t know what will!
It is being launched at the Melbourne Writers Festival this saturday by Former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion. Come join the fun!
Thanks to the art director Lisa Mansfield for her awesome direction.

A sneaky peek at my 2 colour print for Jacky Winter’s group show Risographica on the 9th August. Prints will be sold as limited editions of 10 at $50 each with a percentage of sales going to Vision Australia. Come down to the opening at 6pm and share some good times and great hits.
I wanted to post this image by illustrator Ping Zhu cause I can’t stop staring at it. The colours and textures are blowing my mind! I hope she sells some of her ladies soon. You can see more of them on her tumblr.
If you are in Melbourne at the moment there is a little treasure hunt on at the moment involving cool shops and local artists. If you grab a map you can hunt down these ‘hidden gems and rough diamonds’ in the CBD, fitzroy and north melbourne.
I was approached by my childhood dream store Bernards Magic Shop to do an installation in their stairwell. The huge posters pictured tell the fictional tale of Bernard, his life and his magic shop.
Those close to me will know this was my go-to shop to buy fake dog turds and fake bloodied nail-in-the-finger pranks.
Go forth and check out the posters, and while you are in there purchase a fake dog poo and think of me.
