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.
My friend Kyle also did a piece for the show, see his contribution here.
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 the official site for the event: http://www.chromacon.co.nz/
They have also set up a Pledgeme fundraiser so please check it out if you’d like to support the festival: https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/Crowd/Details/952

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/
Watercolour study. I’ve been practicing with colour again as I doubt I’ll get away with working only in black and white forever.
Here are some shots from our group show Personal Works By. The exhibition was a big success and we’d like to thank all who attended. Check out Adam, Henry, Maxi, Alex and Nick’s art blogs to see work from the show. Thanks to Artsdiary for the photos.
Now that the show is out of the way I’ll be posting new work in the coming weeks.
We are happy to announce our group exhibition Personal Works By, which opens tomorrow night at 5:30pm, Wednesday 13-17th February. We are hosting it in our shared studio at 323 Queen St, Studio 12a.
The show will feature work by Adam Tan, Alexander Martin, Maxi Quy, Henry Christian-Slane and Nick Blazey. Please come along if you are in the Auckland area!
