Art Nouveau Storm Print

The third in my favourite ladies of the Xmen – Storm! At this stage I should have all four designs as prints for Supanova Melb! The last illustration to be revealed this week!
I have taken inspiration from Alphonse Mucha’s “Precious Stones” series for the color schemes of each of these designs.


Robert Smith Art Nouveau Portrait

A very special ink drawing commission of Robert Smith from The Cure. I took inspiration from their album covers and music videos designing the motifs.

Art Nouveau Phoenix Print

A new print to add to my series of favourite women of X-men. These characters got me interested in comics and as a kid I always wished there were beautiful posters of them I could hang up in my room. Depicted as heroes to look up to not just sexy pin ups. So I am making them now.

Next in the series is Storm!


Kylo Ren Sketch Commission

Example of my $50 Character Drawings I’m doing for Supanova Melbourne. I’m offering for the first time pre-show con sketches that can be picked up during the show. I do not do sketches while exhibiting at conventions. So if you are interested in a drawing from me email me to secure your spot. More details below:


Korra & Asami Art Nouveau Portraits

A pair of art nouveau portrait commissions I had the pleasure of doing last month. They request Korra with water elements and Asami with mechanical elements highlighting their relationship. I’m really happy with their expressions looking at one another.

These drawings were done on separate 9 x 12″ bristol paper using Copic Multiliners.


Xena Art Nouveau Portrait

Art Nouveau portrait of Xena Warrior Princess for my lovely friend’s birthday. I never got to watch the show (didn’t get to watch much tv growing up) but I think I would have liked it. Not sure about trying to watch it now…?

LARP Character Portrait Commission

Another different kind of portrait commissioned by my friend of him as his LARP/ Swordcraft character. He made most of his costume as well as his healer equipment himself.
