Had some good times with Uncle Friendly working on a robot illustration for Optus’ latest TV spot for the iPhone11. You can check out the 1 minute directors cut of the ad above, and the rest of Uncle Friendly’s portfolio on his Vimeo here.
Diemen Awards 2018
The opportunity to put a couple of my illustrations into Tasmania’s creative industry event – The Diemen Awards came up and I’m really pleased to announce that I made the finalists this year. It was great to catch up with some people I hadn’t seen in ages and mingle a bit with the greater creative community here in Hobart. So much talent out there working on big projects. Getting the recognition at this level was really cool too, and it’s lit a fire under my ass/arse/bottom to work a lot harder in 2019. See you next year Diemen!
Australia’s number one craft beer bottle shop, Mane Liquor, asked whether I’d be keen to do a poster illustration for their upcoming party in the carpark, and having a soft spot – especially around the mid-section for craft beer (cue moan), I said yes.
The brief was really open and I had free reign to come up with something that suited the beer and wine ethos that the team are so passionate about. So a temple for beer popped in my head and out popped this illustration. Two versions – black and white and watercolour.
These will make their appearance on posters and fliers for the store’s annual party in the carpark this November. So get yourself to Mane Liquor and check out the beers and wines they’ll have on offer there – including something a little special from Dormilona. Stay tuned!
The newest Clayface labels for Dormilona wines are in the wild, and it’s been great to work with Jo on these again. The latest piece mixes fruity flavours with coastal Western Australia. Wine X Life Aquatic. The only thing missing – Portuguese versions of my favourite Bowie songs.
