2012 Create Awards

The Creative Panic has been shortlisted for the 2012 Create Awards and I am flying to Melbourne tomorrow to attend the Awards Night. I’m in the company of some über-awesome illustrators so I don’t have my hopes high for a win but it really is an honour to be shortlisted for the award as this is a national award for the design and creative industry in Australia.



Totem (#88)

I’m really wanting to paint another Panic but with little Piper and Neave and the jobs that go with being Mr Mum time is getting away from me! So here is another digitally illustrated Panic! Paint and paper coming soon!

Phantom Limbs (#86)

Trees. Hover limbs optional extra.

Today’s Panic is a quickie as I’m off to the first home game of the season for the Pioneer’s Basketball team… should be a good night!

I struggled to get the tree roots right so just gave up and added in a quasi-futuristic pot thingy… lazy, I know.

Wowzer, only 14 posts off 100 Illustrations… Pumped!

The Modern Multi-linguist (#20)

Rodney is a busy man.

The worldly gentleman in this day and age is a busy, hectic creäture. Gone are the days when one could relax in the study, sipping a cheeky Pinot and ponder the questions of existence. Likewise, the time taken to learn a second, third or fourth language is simply too much. This is why those who must keep up appearances enlist the help of the fine people at Google translate. The world becomes a veritable orgasm of multi-linguistics without the need for extended study be it French, Latin or German just to name a few.

Today’s illustration has taken me back to the “let’s get this stuff out the door quickly!” as opposed to the last few efforts which have taken me a little while longer to do. Nice bold lines, simple colouring and hand drawn lettering done VERY quickly! All done approx. 25 minutes for this one. Mad props to Mrs Simone Kain for the “I’m fluent in English and Google translate” phrase!
