Prints and Original Art

INK & PIXELS Show at The Bunker

If you're Coffs Harbour way this Friday night, pop into the Bunker Cartoon Gallery for the opening of James Brennan, Dave Derret and my shows.  Here's the Bunker's April flyer... please click for a closer look. Bunker_April-Flyer-2014

I've named mine INK & PIXELS, and it is a collection of illustration and cartoons that have been published in magazines and comics.  All art on show is available unsigned at extremely affordable prices, and for the early birds there are some choice signed archival giclee prints going much cheaper than at my shop.

Cartoons Galore!

Hungry for Art logo I'll be at the opening of the Cartoons Galore! exhibition at Top Ryde Shopping Centre this Saturday to soak up lots of nice art from Aussie cartoonists.  It's part of the Hungry for Art festival and should be fun.  I have a few prints in there, too.  Please come along!

The Cartoons Galore! exhibition will be located on the Ground Floor of Top Ryde City (Just outside Myers) and will run from the 24th of August 2013 to the 7th of September 2013.

The official opening is on Saturday the 24th of August at 12-noon (12-noon to 2pm).

Members of the Australian Cartoonists' Association will be present to draw live, talk to the public about cartooning and drawing, offer free caricatures, etc...

Over 60 cartoonists will have work exhibited, from gag-cartoons, comic-strips, book illustrations, graphic-novel pages, comics pages, editorial/political cartoons, magazine illustrations, etc...

Thanks to Christophe Granet (Hagen) and the ACA for doing a stellar job with this.  Dealing with cartoonists can be like herding cats who are herding cartoonists.

So, what are you waiting for? Git on down...

A Bit of the Process...

A little bit of video for you. Here's me doing some quick, initial sketching. No music, cruddy quality, but hey... as the kids say, whatev's.

And three of me sketching it up a little tighter. I usually take a few passes at the sketches until I get it right.

The final sketch and inks:
