Dance Instructors Vintage Business Card Illustration


I recently had the pleasure of drawing these two fabulous dancer and good friends who have just started a business teaching private dance lessons. The Illustrations were created to use on their business cards which I also designed. They specialise in teaching; Lindy Hop, Swing, Rock 'n' Roll, Rockabilly, Balboa and Collegiate Shag so I went for a vintage feel to the illustrations and the design of the Business Card.

The Year Of The Rooster! Lunar New Year Illustration



This is a poster I designed and illustrated for The Inner West Council's 2017 Lunar New Year festivities, through my work at Sweets Workshop.


The festivities celebrate, the tenth sign of the 12-year cycle and it is represented by a Rooster. In Chinese astrology, each year is associated with a Chinese zodiac animal sign and also one of the Five Elements, which makes 2017 a Fire Rooster.


I had a great time illustrating this regal golden Fire Rooster and  I used a traditional style and colour palate so it would be instantly recognisable as poster for Chinese New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year I hope you get to enjoy some festivities!!

Whatta Man - Salt 'N' Pepa with En Vogue, Song Poster Illustration Commission #3


I was recently commissioned to illustrate a fantastic project that was a little secretive as the end results was a wedding gift from a bride to be to her husband. Now that the wedding is over I can finally blog about it. The project was to illustrate three posters that visually represented three songs that were very significant to the couple. The end result was going to be three posters that they could hang in their home. The third song was Whatta Man by  Salt 'N' Pepa with En Vogue.


Well this poster was a whole heap of fun to illustrate. I decided to created caricatures of Cheryl James (Salt) and Sandra Denton (Pepa) and represent their rap (that among other things describes features of their perfect man) as a series of pictorial speech bubbles. I chose a colour scheme that would scream 1994, so I looked to the intro of the television show Fresh Prince of Bel Air for a little inspiration.
