It’s just a flesh wound
My piece for New Takes, a group show now on at Artstation until August 3rd. Each of us were appointed a film chosen by another artist, which we then responded to. I was given Monty Python’s Holy Grail. Please come check out the show if you’re in Auckland.
The second edition of my graphic novel Apt. 41 is now available to order here:
Thanks again to everyone who has purchased one so far! I will also have a new book out by the end of this year. More pages here.
Second attempt at Jaisi of The Psychs. Check out the first single off their upcoming album on bandcamp.
Illustrations I did for New Zealand band The Psychs. Look out for their debut album, Supa Color, releasing later this year.
I will have a stall at Chromacon next Sunday May 12, with Adam Tan, Henry Christian-Slane, Alex Martin and Nick Blazey. Chromacon is the first illustration and comics festival of its type in New Zealand, and will be held at Aotea centre in Auckland. We will be selling prints, books and original artworks, so please come along if you’re in the area!

Here’s another watercolour study. I haven’t been posting much lately as I’ve been working on a few projects, including a new graphic novel and artwork for Chromacon, an illustration and comics convention coming up on May 12 in Auckland.
I’ve also just started a music blog with my friend Lukas: http://outputmusic.tumblr.com/
