Art Nouveau Portrait Commission

An Art Nouveau portrait commission from last year of the client’s lovely wife. It needed to have lots of swirls to show off her long blonde hair. Watercolor and ink on A4 cream bristol paper.


Dr. Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Chase Paradise

A fiery and funny night at Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne last week with Chase Paradise #strippacomic!
I am having a great time loosening up and scribbling with my watercolor pencils 


Fairlady 300ZX “Woodblock” Painting

Something a bit different – Japanese woodblock print style 300ZX Fairlady I painted as a birthday present for a friend based on his own beautifully restored and lovingly converted street/racer Nissan.
The scene is on “Benkei Bridge” looking towards a modern Tokyo.


Tarzan

Tarzan – strong and wary. He is at one with the jungle.

An ink and watercolor piece I did earlier this year as a birthday present for my very dear and very talented artist friend. Find him on instagram – https://www.instagram.com/loopydavestuff/ and shower him with compliments and money

I wanted to capture the feel of old 3 color printed bookcovers using only yellow, green and black to build the image. I completely redrew the line work 4 times before I was happy with it.


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! 🌈


“Endure”

“Endure”

I started this piece as a Valentine. To all of the beautiful creative hearts, you are unstoppable, irrepressible, multifaceted and loved.

Dr. Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Tease Rex and Miss Maple Rose

From no life drawing to two sessions back to back! Sketching Tease Rex at Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne was an absolute blast! Perhaps the first ever burlesque dancer? The evening than heated up with the lovely and crimson Miss Maple Rose.

Kiki’s Delivery Service Prints

Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of my favourite movies. She is so hopeful and brave, dreaming and finding her way.  The conversation between her and her friend about magic and art needing inspiration struck a cord.

“Stop trying. Take long walks. Look at scenery. Doze off at noon. Don’t even think about flying. And then, pretty soon, you’ll be flying again.” – Ursula

I will be selling prints of this painting at Supanova to go with my Princess Mononoke tribute painting I did last year.

Find me and both prints at Table 74 in the Grand Pavilion!
