Another weekend experiment. Learned to use the eye dropper tool. #lifechanging. Can’t believe I didn’t know how to use it before now

Back on black

This is Spanna, who I promised to use as a muse. We spent a good bit of time doing grainy, hungover selfies during her revent trip to Perth. Haven’t quite figured out how to recreate the graffiti on the wall. Or sort the shading on her left arm. working on it. Take two:   I…

Back to basics

I drew a lot as a kid, but was never really any good at it. Most of my scribbles were curves and tunnels in the border of my trigonometry papers. I much prefer drawing electronically. Draw one eye, copy it, flip it and BAM, you have two eyes, both the same size. Don’t get the colour…

Skeletorious in Markstrat

It is an algorithm designed in the 1970s that allowed teams of MBA students to pit their marketing skills against each other, with a focus on the four Ps: Price, promotion, placement, and product. I think. We named our marketing team Shysters…

Being Homer

I was banned as a child from the Simpsons. I think I was about 13 when it graced the television sets of country Victoria, so I got probably an extra kick out of drawing Simpsons characters. Although I presume I’m the only person in the world using microsoft publisher to draw cartoon characters for fun. The closest I…
