And now the completed painting joins “Vampire” and “Siren”. I have two other monsters from my initial sketches that I hope will be realized soon.
Grumbacher watercolors, micron pen on 300gm fine grain cold pressed.
This weekend I got to cross “See Dita Perform” off my life to-do list! Strip Strip Hooray returned to Melbourne for 2 encore shows after the first sold out within hours and I wasn’t going to miss my chance!
All of the performers were incredible and EVERYTHING sparkled! Dita’s iconic performances are iconic for good reason. She is impossibly graceful and precise yet genuinely seemed to enjoy herself. Did I mention that everything was sparkly – breathtakingly, dazzlingly sparkly.
The opening act was her Martini Glass routine and the crowd was instantly mesmerised. When she splashed it looked like diamonds falling in slow motion. This small (14x19cm) painting is my attempt to capture that.

I will be selling prints and postcards of my work along with some new plush toys and a few other new things at OZ ComicCon Melbourne this weekend June 11th & 12th, 2016!
This will be my first time exhibiting at a OZ ComicCon event and it looks like it is going to be HUGE!
You can find me and my work at table 28 in the Artist Alley by the entrance near Stage 3.
Jannkin Hearts – Baron Heart’s younger brother and considered possibly even more dangerous then the King. Fanatically devoted to Law, he hopes to rid himself of all emotion and find Pure Truth by practising the ancient rituals of Order.
The Jack of Hearts completes the House of Hearts in my series called The Gamblers – characters and stories from which I’m building my own deck of playing cards.
I’m looking into starting a Patreon to help fund finishing off the remaining designs and go towards get the completed deck printed. I would like to share the preliminary sketches, more of background story and offer a limited number of commissions.
And in fitting with Fallout’s salvaged aesthetic I recycled a 20x30cm tin sign, weathering and sanding off its original paint.
I wanted to capture the Petty Girl glowing tan and sweet smile of vintage pin ups. I imagine that an image like this would be like a recruitment poster for the Brotherhood faction.
She is entirely painted using Vallejo acrylic paint including the Brotherhood logo and text that I airbrushed stencil on before beginning the figure. The finished painting is protected and sealed with UV cut Matte clear spray varnish.
I will have her on display and for sale at Supanova this weekend (April 16 & 17th) at the Melbourne Showgrounds, Ascot Vale.
I’m back exhibiting at Supanova Melbourne again this year with some new prints, new handmade plush toys and some one-off original art! You can find me there this weekend in the Artist Alley section table 150. It looks like its going to be a great expo this year so come check it out and stop by and say hi!
Samus Aran in the Art Nouveau style new print design. I will have prints of her and my other designs for sale at this years events and online.
I never really got to play video games much as a kid but when I got to play Smash Bros. at friends’ houses I always chose Samus. It was years later I found out that she wasn’t a robot and there was a person inside!
