Wonder Woman Prints

Power. Grace. Wisdom. Courage. Wonder.

🌟New Print! Wonder Woman! 🌟

I really liked the Wonder Woman movie and I am so glad that kids growing up now have heroes like her to look up to.

Especially girls.


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Ruby Slippers

Dr Sketchy’s life drawing has been my “no stress art time” for so many years. The chaotic joyful atmosphere makes it impossible to take “art-ing” too seriously. I really enjoy the chance to experiment and rapidly capture something of these spectacular performers.
Thank you Mel for this wonderful experience 💖 And thank you to the beautiful rainbow tornado Ruby Slippers! 🌈


Art Nouveau Ladies of X-men Prints

The final prints all together! The ladies of X-men in jewel tone Art Nouveau style.

Prints will be available to buy as a set or individually at Supanova Melb – ✨Table 76 ✨in the Grand Pavilion and Oz Comic-Con Melbourne in June. Any remaining prints will be sold through my etsy shop.


Art Nouveau Rogue Print

And saving my favourite for last in my ladies of X-men series – Rogue!

Prints of these series will be available to buy as a set or individually at Supanova Melb April 21-22 and at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne in June. Any remaining prints will be sold through my etsy shop.


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.
Copic Multiliners and Dr. Ph. Martin’s india ink on Bristol board.

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…?
