My Mother's garden






I went down to my Mum's house in Mt. Martha this weekend. I always take a walk around the garden on her 5 acre property, as my Mum and Dad planted it together and Dad really loved taking care of it.
The sun was out and the flowers were popping with such beautiful colour. My sister Gertie was visiting too so we strolled around together, it was so so lovely. I couldn't help but take some pictures to bring back to Melbourne with me to remind me of the gorgeous place my parents created. xx

The Travelling Peelsman


My dear friend James has just launched his new business The Travelling Peelsman. Yep, he'll come to you and chemically peel your face and have you looking like a million bucks in next to no time.
I was thrilled when James asked me to create an illustration identity for him, and after several hang outs, sketch sessions and discussions, here is the finished illustration. xxx

Sydney Bike Festival


I was invited by the organisers of the upcoming Sydney Bicycle Film Festival 10th Anniversary, to design a bike for their show JOYRIDE. The Bike Festival started in NYC and has grown into an international event. I'll post photos of my bike when it's done (it's currently at halfway point at my house) but for now here's the link to the event incase you're a wheelie like me. CLICK HERE!

Back from the North!


Last Saturday I flew up to Mission Beach (FNQ... nearly the very top of Australia) to meet Dave and have a long overdue holiday. Work is too busy to take more than a week off so we squeezed as much as we could in to our short time up there. We went SCUBA diving, something I've always wanted to do. The Great Barrier Reef exceeded any expectations I'd had, it was just magnificent. I saw colours under the water I didn't think were even possible, patted a giant clam and had stingrays and nemo's and parrot fish and the whole fish community swimming around me in their spectacular coral home. An AMAZING experience. We stayed at my Aunt's house which is right ON the beach... the photo is the view from the front verandah, paradise! We filled the rest of our days with lots of frisbee, walks, picnics, crozzles (my new favourite game) and just chilling the fuck out. Arrived back home last night and am straight back to the grind, with a pile of briefs awaiting my attention at The Just Group and at home. Haven't been this busy... ever.
