The Dreamer EP cover I designed for Lily was featured on the Jazz and Draw blog! I was contacted by Philippe to contribute something to his lovely blog and since music and illustration are my two favourite things, of course I said yes! The Jazz and Draw blog is a great space to discover new music and artists. Check it out here.
And on the jazz theme, lately I've been listening to the music of Italian singer Raphael Gualazzi. He came 2nd place last year in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest and his album Reality and Fantasy is the bomb. So good! One of my fave songs is A Three Second Breath - the chorus is v catchy :)

New stuff! This is the latest piece of work I have completed as part of my Jump Mentorship. My brief was to make up an event with a theme that would work across a series of posters, flyers, and promotional material. I invented the fictional 'Hands Up' event as a series of uni band nights, giving an opportunity for talented young bands and musicians to play in front of live audiences and improve their skills. Each event that is held relates to a genre of music and features bands who play that genre of music.
My idea was for the series of posters to show different types of hand in all kinds of poses. They serve to connect the visuals with the event name 'Hands Up' as well as being a recognizable element that can be carried across a variety of mediums.
The last time I drew a hand on its own was the Zombie Turkey Hand I did last year (check it out here) and I had heaps of fun drawing this one. Maybe I have a fascination with drawing green hands??

'Sweeet!' Were my thoughts when I saw the work of Andreas Krapf. I love the cuteness and storylines in his illustrations, the Ray Ban's ad is my fave. Check out more of his work here.
