The lovely people at Solitude Magazine featured my Cross My Heart illustration in their Dec issue! Solitude is an Australian magazine featuring the best in alternative stylings, rockabilly, burlesque, tattoo, goth and punk. It's a great read and I think it's really refreshing to see these kind of magazines at the newsagents alongside more mainstream publications. Available for purchase online here.

|Stylin' and profilin' in her new tee|
Remember that t-shirt giveaway I held last month? The winner was Sarah and the tee got mailed out from Australia all the way to The Netherlands, along with some postcard-size prints, stickers and a magnet. Well, she sent me an awesome email to say she received it and she posted some super-cute photos on her blog!
If you like all things cute and sweet, you should check out her Proud Daydreamer blog - the tea-addicted cuteness hoarder and space cowboy in the making (I love that title!)
Thanks for sharing the photos, Sarah! ^_^

Art Harvest is having a launch party tonight on the Gold Coast, and they have posted a video on their website showcasing the artists and products available. There's some footage of me in the studio sketching ideas plus it shows a bit of the process I go through to decide on final colour combinations for an illustration.
Thanks to my friend for filming me, it took so many takes to get a decent shot without me laughing! You can check out my Art Harvest page here.

So excited to finally post about this! My illustrations are now available to be purchased as iPhone cases and skins, as well as high quality prints from Society6! I have wanted to have my art on iPhone cases for the longest time. I chose Society6, as the iPhone cases have a very slim profile, and are stronger, lighter, more flexible, and of a higher quality compared to other plastic cases on the market. The cases are available to purchase for either iPhone 3G or iPhone 4.
I ordered the Señora Muerte case for myself and I am so happy with how it turned out, the level of detail in the tattoos is amazing and the colours are sharp!
Also, Society6 is offering free shipping worldwide this weekend - offer expires midnight on Sunday (USA time, I assume). You can view all my iPhone cases here.

Super exciting news! I while ago, I entered a design into the Positive Posters competition. For those who don't know, Positive Posters aims to raise international awareness for global social issues through an annual poster competition. This year, there were over 2,500+ entries from 80+ countries and my 'Seeds of Destruction' entry is one of the top 30 finalists!
I had to position hundreds of tiny beans to create this finished piece. One sneeze and it was over! 'Seeds of Destruction' refers to the topic of genetically engineered foods, which is a really important issue to me. I've pasted my rationale below:
GE canola crops have been grown in Canada with disastrous results. The GE crops contaminated regular crops and today in Canada, you can no longer buy conventional canola as 90% of it is contaminated with GE material. The biotechnology companies now have a monopoly on canola production and the cost of that patented seed is going up every year. The food produced poses risks to human health. It is unethical to patent seed life!
You can view the top 30 posters here. Winners will be announced Nov 9, so fingers crossed :)
