These drawings feature my friend the Sydney saxophonist Matt Keegan. He's putting together a website down the track and wanted to use some of my drawings as motifs on the site. It's always good to do work for someone whose work you admire, and Matt has been good enough to use my work for two of his band's previous albums, "Roadscape" and "Tone Imagination".

Here are two new drawings I did in my sketchbook for a friend of mine, Raquel Alvarez. She and her friend Patricia Oassé have started up a fashion blog - enossabr.blogspot.com, and had the cool idea of using drawings rather than photographs to introduce themselves to readers of the blog.

I've been filling my sketchbook here in NYC with scenes from the city, drawings of friends and life drawings. Some of the heads in this collage belong to Adam "Surge" Hart, my brother Jasper, his lovely girlfriend Cerelina and my great mate Les Robinson.

So in the end I did work it up, it's not quite finished but it's as close as I could get before I ran out of patience. I wanted it to be a sort of updated take on Frank Frazetta's "Death Dealer". I might have another go at the same theme sometime down the track.
Here is another selection of storyboard frames completed for Nick Robertson at Plaza Films Australia for a Canon IXUS TVC. I've also included a moodboard/digital painting I created which was then used to sell the idea of fitting out an empty shopfront to make it look like a real nightspot. To see the TVC itself go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McLhdUmdbNY

This is a quick drawing of Batman I did ages ago. I was in Berlin at the time working for Omgraphix on a documentary about the French comic artist Moebius and we were trying out various motion-capture techniques. It became an element we used numerous times in the film. In the end we were lucky enough to be able to use animated drawings by comic legends like Moebius, Mike Mignola, Jim Lee and Enki Bilal.

Here are just a few things - sketchbook pages, life drawings and paintings - that were done over the last 5 years or so, when I was still using mainly natural media. The "Portrait of the Xanthe in a Rabbit Fur Coat" was painted in Australia, as part of my entry for the Alice Bale Traveling Scholarship. The rest were done during my last long stint overseas in Berlin (04-06).
