Tracks Backpage Illustration October Issue : "Mining Claim"

Here I played with the idea of miners burrowing their way through the gaping water tunnels of the Northwest of W.A., where some of the continent's biggest mining operations are located as well as some of its best waves.

Tracks Backpage Illustration September Issue : "The Walking Dead"


Here I drew a parallel between the ascendence of the younger generation of pro surfers at this year's Fiji pro-surfing event to the battle between the uninfected and the zombies in the TV series "The Walking Dead".

R.I.P. Rik Mayall

I was saddened to hear that one of my comedy heroes, Rik Mayall, died yesterday. The Young Ones and Bottom are two of my favourite shows of all time, and my brother and I have grown up laughing our heads off watching them. He was a genius! Here's a drawing of him I did a while back.

Tracks July Backpage Illustration

Bit of a mix-up with this illustration, I've since had to re-do it with the addition of two more kings of Bells. Look for the final version in July Tracks.



Action Mel

Another of my take-offs of members of the ASP commentary team. This time it's Peter Mel's turn.

Tracks Champions Series

I was recently commissioned to draw a selection of past winners of the Quiksilver Pro on five fine surfboards by Tracks Magazine. I was put up for two weeks on the Gold Coast while the contest was in full swing and managed to produce likenesses of (from left) Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Stephanie Gilmore, Kelly Slater and Taj Burrow. The boards were then given away to random winners via Instagram. Great fun.

For friends in the USA.

These were done without reference in 30 mins each as entries to the Daily Spitpaint competition on Facebook, only I never entered them. Some of the artists are truly incredible and this is a new discipline for me. I'll keep working on this sort of thing now and then, it's a real challenge.



A couple of recent-ish caricatures... Snoop Dogg and Jake Gyllenhaal as Jarhead

Logo for German band Andi Thon

These guys mix Bavarian dialect with rock and feature my great friend Marcel Renault on drums. They're using this for branding - stickers, stencils and the like.


The Road to Ghost Cabins

Here are some of the characters from a great surf novel by my mate Fred Pawle entitled The Road to Ghost Cabins.

Here's a storyboard I did a while back for a pretty amazing product made by Durex called Fundawear. Watch it and see!
