Space FLiK

Recently, I found a small cardboard box that contains all the artwork, and the super-8 film spool of a movie I made when I was 15/16, for my final high school HSC art exam. This celluloid masterpiece was called SPACE FLiK, and was a hopelessly crude parody of Star Wars in the style of Mad magazine (two things [..READ MORE..]

BIZARRO Sketch Night

A week ago today, my friend Ben Walker held one of his fun sketch events at 111 Minna Gallery. This time it was BIZARRO SKETCH NIGHT, where all the participants drew 100% with their non-dominant hands. Drawing with my bad hand is something I've been getting trying to get used to of late, with mixed success.. So it [..READ MORE..]

A Boxing Day Far, Far, Away..

It's difficult to preserve memory when your older-self's revised view constantly overwrites the original impression. How do you file a loving memory of someone you no-longer like? Or childhood memories of wonder, but of things now uncool? Do you owe it to your earlier-self to keep that first impression alive? One such moment, is a memory of awe [..READ MORE..]

Princess Leia

"Aren't you a little SHORT for a storm-trooper?" She just saw her planet blown up, and all her loved ones vaporised, but Princess Leia still has a smart arse remark for a lowly cloned stormtrooper. Oh, what a woman.

Memory Reboot

In an attempt to purge my mind's eye of images of the BEARDED SLAVE LEIA seen last weekend at Emerald City Comic Con, where he single handedly overwrote the adolescent memories of a thousands of nerds (including myself) here are some quick sketches of the Princess LEIA I would prefer to remember, drawn through bleeding eyes.

The DORK side of the FARCE

Halloween is perhaps my favourite American holiday. Some of my earliest happy impressions of America were in seeing the cities of New York and San Francisco throwing themselves into this tradition with gusto. The spectacle of Werewolves, Popes, and Cowgirls… Zombies, Witches and Animals of all ages, shapes and sizes, out en masse, walking the streets, or riding [..READ MORE..]

My Auction Pieces

These Star Wars portraits are the original pieces that I did for the latest Maverix Art Auction, held last night. Additionally, I submitted three signed and framed prints from my Dad's Elephant Book. Over this past week I rented and watched the original three Star Wars movies, and as I'd already been doodling the characters, I decided to [..READ MORE..]

Senator Leia Organa

Frequent visitors to this blog will have noticed that I have Star Wars on the brain at the moment… Here's a little doodle (3×4 inches) of Princess LEIA done while watching TV last night.. You've all no doubt heard of HAN SOLO, but what about his sister; TRUMPET SOLO? (That nugget of internet gold courtesy of CHRIS.) Some [..READ MORE..]

Geeking out...

Since getting my copy of Ralph McQuarrie's new book I've been geeking out hard on Star Wars. So skip this post unless you are prepared to trip down that nerd path with me. A few nights back, I spent a few hours online trying to track down a few images I had seen years ago. After almost giving [..READ MORE..]
