An Animal Affair
Donated for the Dandelion Wishes Gala for silent auction on February 24th, 2017, which will raise funds for the new Monash Children’s Hospital in Clayton, Victoria.
Size: A2
Materials: Faber Castell Polychromos and Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils, blended with odourless mineral spirits.
Approximately 17 hours of work.
A first draft of this (which is seen toward the end of the video) was planned to arrange the components of this image. I wanted a clean artwork for the final piece, so I created a first draft to be traced to complete the final work.
An Animal Affair represents both my country hometown of Mildura, in the Sunraysia region, and Melbourne.
I have a close connection to both places, as I was born and live in Mildura, but I travel to Melbourne frequently.
Mildura is known for its production of fruits. Approximately 80% of Victoria’s grapes come from Mildura.
This gathering of native Australian animals represents rural Australian life, except for the indecisive ‘hipster’ possum, who can often be found frequenting Melbourne’s trendiest bars and cafes.

Grand Final Rivals – For Variety, The Children’s Charity – Speed Drawing

Grand Final Rivals
For the Variety Great Grand Final Lunch on Wednesday 28th of September, 2016, which will raise funds for sick, disadvantaged and special needs children throughout Australia.

Size: 11×14 inches
Materials: 300GSM watercolor paper, Prismacolor and Faber Castell watercolor and coloured pencils, Copic, Letraset and Mont Marte markers, Faber Castell Gelato pigment sticks, Steatdtler fineliners, Derwent blender pens, 2B pencil for sketching.
Approximately 12 hours of work.

There’s no bigger rivals in the AFL than Carlton and Collingwood, and this artwork represents that. I wanted to create something colourful and lighthearted to reflect what a part of Variety is about. Although raising funds for sick and disadvantaged children, the flamboyant Variety Bash is one of the most recognised car rallies in Australia.
