Westfield Portrait Booth

Hard at work!

Last weekend I was at Westfield Whitford City drawing portraits for the Autumn Winter fashion launch. There were activities set up all over the shopping centre, with free popsicles, games, manicures and style advice. 

My area was set up like a photo booth where I would draw quick stylized portraits. The client approached me with the idea of the portrait booth based on Tobias Gutmann's Face-O-Mat concept. I didn't know if I would be busy or not, but the illustration booth was super popular with people that day! It was so nice to see the reactions of people when seeing their portrait, for most people it was the only portrait they had ever had.

Inside the booth where all the magic happened
Inside the booth there were interactive buttons where you could choose if you wanted a b&w or colour portrait, plus other options. My favourite portraits were the family ones :)


All in all, I had a ball drawing the portraits! I don't think I've ever looked into so many strangers' eyes before, and for a digital vector fiend like me it was a nice change to work in an impromptu setting where there is no undo button!

Prints & Papercuts


For the last week I've been busy organizing prints and frames (and getting lots of papercuts in the process!) for my latest group exhibition. I'm so used to seeing my work on a computer screen, it's really nice to see my illustrations printed in real life  :)


For those in Perth who want to check it out the exhibition it's at Walther Music, 115 Newcastle Street, Northbridge. Mon - Fri: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

Colour combos


I've been meaning to re-design my business card for a while now, but designing for yourself is one of the hardest jobs! I'm currently looking at colour inspiration... I'm definitely liking the lime green  :)

Chantuese Lily


It's finally finished! I created this poster for a super-talented singer named Lily. I designed her Dreamer EP cover a couple of years ago. This project was a lot of fun to work on, as I love creating anything relating to music. It's a bit different to my usual illustrations as I usually focus on drawing just the face, but this time I have drawn the entire body as well as background details. It's good to challenge yourself and try different things.

I did two colour variations, the client loved both and decided they wanted to use both versions in the future. 

Which version do you like better - blue or purple?

Lily WIP


Finishing off the details before I add colour. I always work in black & white first for vector drawing so I can concentrate on the layout without being distracted by colour.
