Rocking Horsefly

Inspired by Alice's trip Through the Looking Glass the Rocking Horsefly was drawn in ink about 4 months ago and I finally got to colour it using Photoshop.  I am surprised the colour scheme that I chose in the beginning worked so well and that I didn't have to deviate from the original path in order to make it look balance while matching up with the background.

Nine Inch Nails: Tension Tour 2013 Live Concert

Nine Inch Nails are one of the best acts to see live and luckily I have been able to see them 4 times (number 5 coming up in March on their Australian leg of their world tour).  Every time their stage show  is completely different and unmatched by any other live band.  Their lighting rigs and use of screens is always changing, both overtime and over tours but also over the course of one show as the rigging is always evolving, giving each song a personalized visual estetic.  Their latest Tension Tour is their ambitious and costly tour so far and this video documents one of the last stops on the tour before they pack up and fly over to Australia to unveil a new tour once again.

Below here are two videos documenting the behind the scenes efforts and production to get a tour like this off the ground, and just how improvised and intuative the whole process is at the beginning.

Godzilla Trailer

Once again America is trying to remake Godzilla by spending a lot of money and investing in a lot of destruction that is now the weekly regular in the cinemas nowadays.  Somehow this looks like it could be different, and worthwhile.  The cinematography and atmosphere as well as a good cast could elevate this over the standard billion dollar apocalyptic blockbuster.  The sheer size of the monster, concealed reveal of the giant lizard and use to smoke and atmospherics as well as the lack of explosions in this trailer make this one of the best subtle disaster film trailers.  Even if the movie sucks, we have this trailer.

Noah Trailer

The first trailer from director Darren Aronofsky newest film and the first time he has had the money to make a big blockbuster of his career.  As one of my favorite film makers I am really looking forward to this and who knows what surprises Aronofsky has up his sleave for this ancient Biblical tale.  If nothing else it will be stunning visually given that all his movie are with factional budgets in comparison.

End the War on Drugs

Another ex-police officer (Police Captain) debunks the prohibition on drug and how it is more harmful to society to criminalize narcotics.  Every myth he easily shoots down and tells how the US is not winning the war and has never been close to combating the problem with the justice system.  Here's to hoping that Stephen Harper and his gang of idiots don't push forward with US style minimum sentences on drug offences.

Damn Fools Concert Poster

This is a gig poster I did for Damn Fools for an upcoming show at the Imperial.  

My Pet Slug

Cartoonish characters and animals seems to be the current trend for me.  Here is My Pet Slug in its black and white form.  I really love this character and his happy facial expression and the payout with the slug.  I have already coloured this one but it is for someone else, for a different project so I will post the coloured version in the future.

Here is the idea that this guy started out as.  I wanted to show how I rearranged his face and the amazing quick changes that you can make with Photoshop.  I love comparing the two and seeing that same facial features repositioned into such a different personality.

People are Awesome 2013 Compilation

RIP Ol Dirty Bastard

It has been 9 years since my favorite rapper died and it is two days until it would have been his 35th birthday.  The best in the game, ever.  Someone that is irreplaceable.

My First Fish Threadless T-Shirt Submission

Once again I have another I have another submission at Threadless.  Help me out and vote 5 and maybe this sucker will be printed.  I am not sure if the Wolf of Wall Street was accepted, although I got a lot of positive feedback, I haven't recieved any feedback from the Threadless people so that probably means its a no go.  But whatever better luck with this one.  Thanks for your help people!

P.S. If you haven't voted before you just have to register, which literally takes 1 minute.

Mid-Air Plane Crash Involving 11 Skydivers

It is amazing footage of a mid-air crash in which no one was seriously injured.

As a bonus here is a shot of the craziest plane takeoff ever.

My First Fish

This was something I drew a few months ago, but just coloured this weekend on Photoshop.  It is a mock childrens book cover.

Documentary Searching for Sugar Man

I watched this last night and it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.  The story of Rodriguez a folk singer in the early 1970s who made two records that didn't sell at all in the States and then he just dissappeared.  Somehow one of the records of the few that did sell ended up in South Africa, where pirated cassettes of the original vinyl circulated and his albums become two of the biggest and culturally important albums of the time.  This film tries to track down and tell the story of a man that almost no one knew the story of, while soundtracked by his music that everyone should know.  Below is the trailer.


Here is the full film.

Garret Gardener the Carrot Farmer

I figured after The Wolf of Wall Street I would draw a cute little animal.  Did this relatively quick compared to my normal speed.

The Wolf of Wall Street Threadless T-shirt Submission

Go to Threadless and Vote 5 if you would like to be able to purchase The Wolf of Wall Street as a T-shirt.  It only takes a minute to register and it would mean a lot to me because I want one of these shirts and I will not make any shirts myself anymore.  Thanks for your help!

Russel Brand, You Don't Vote?

Russel Brand is interviewed by Jeremy Paxman about his political ideologies and how his views are not represented by our current system and as so voting would be hypocritical.  The interviewer tries his best to disregard Brand for his lack of engagement with the current system but Brand eloquently tell how we are all underrepresented and that a change is coming and will have to come.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Hand drawn and painted with watercolours, later digitized to reap havoc on the sheep of the world through crooked business deals and cut throat greed, The Wolf of Wall Street is still hungry for more.  I will have more to share with this one in about a weeks time.

Batman vs. Superman Parody

Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer

The trailer for the new Wes Anderson film (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenembaums, The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, & Moonrise Kingdom).  I love all things Wes Anderson but this trailer has me more excited then I have ever been before a release on one of his films.  This looks a little more stylized, frantic, and funny then his past movies, while assembling his grandest cast with many of his alumna returning to his world.

Madame Buttons Presents: HYSTERIUM A Fashion Fashion Costume Show

This poster is something that I have been working on nightly for the last few weeks and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work on a Art Nouveau poster inspired by the works of Alphonse Mucha.  I have always loved his style of interplay between patterns, hair and framing but have been too intimidated to try my hand at such a work.  Madame Buttons came to me with the layout for this poster and a vision of what the finished poster should look like, which I was pleased to have the opportunity to undertake.

This poster is for an event in which Madame Buttons unveils 27 Haute Couture fashion costumes on the world which she has been working on for the last two years.  If you are in Melbourne on November 28th, don't miss this night of excess.

Below is the press release for the show and a link to the Facebook page containing more information and links to buy tickets to the event.

Madame Buttons Presents


The most unexplored phenomenon of human consciousness is that of the psychedelic experience.

Public research on the subject has been restricted by all governments without exemption; reserving these experiments only for their own operations of grievous mal-intent.

What was not anticipated, however, was that a secretive network of subterranean – commonly referred to as underground- trans-dimensional beings were already traversing unknown bounds throughout multiple-histories and universes in order to second-step the misguided calculations of clandestine government agencies.

These creatures prance through an entanglement of histories of seduction and psychedelia: from the Art Nuevo world of the Belle Epoch and a romp through post-modernism, to a ballroom teeming with flappers in the 1920’s and then a night out in a NYC basement amidst the glam culture of the 1980’s.

An anonymous tip-off leaked the whereabouts and timing surrounding the next congregation:


Posing as "A smattering of performance artists, a flamboyance of catwalk beauties and a series of short snappy dance performances - underscored by a DJ set with the delicious Mimi Velevska" the evening is purported to be a cryptic insight into the attire and behavioural antics of one particular personality - Madame Buttons – who has combed the entire of history for the inspiration for her physical guises, manifest as 27 spectacular head-to-toe outfits give or take the toe to be displayed on live flesh before your very eyes.

In addition, a line of tight, tight, tight consumable epidermis in the form of her Liquid Lycra ranges will be available for you to purchase and wear throughout your own galactic romp.

The tear in space-time is scheduled for 8pm sharp – as inter-stellar winds obscure the quantum doorway within a quarter of an hour.

*Pre-purchasing through Madame Buttons is softly suggested to avoid circulating surplus currency.

Frog and the Fish

Here is something I drew by hand and then spent far to long redoing the linework on Illustrator.  Looks a lot better though.  Will colour in the future.

The Suicide King

I drew this while stepping away from my computer and getting back to hand drawing.  I did this in ink and watercolour (the red) and then touched it up in Photoshop.  The bottom image compares the original scan with the finished Photoshop version.

Ol Dirty Bastard

After months and months of not posting on this blog due to my computer going down I am back for a short period of time, on a hired computer, to share some artwork that I have done over the last few months.  I drew this portrait of the late and great Ol' Dirty Bastard (my second portrait of him) in ink and pencil crayon.  I scanned it, touched it up and distorted it on Photoshop.

A Band Called DEATH Documentary Trailer

A BAND CALLED DEATH [Trailer] from Drafthouse Films on Vimeo.

These guys were punk years before people had heard punk music.  They were nearly unheard and unknown of until nearly 35 years after they broke up when a demo tape was found, remastered, and released upon the world.  Even though there are only 7 songs on their 1974 recorded and 2009 released album For The Whole World to See, it packs more punch then almost any other band has managed no matter the length of their career.  Since this was released 4 years ago it has been a constant on my playlist.  I am really lloking forward to this movie and seeing more about this band and their story.  Its too bad that the lead singer was already dead by the time people heard of this band and promoters were trying to book them shows.  Look them up and buy this album.

A.Wolf Pozible Proposal to Create & Exhibit in Australia

I have decided to try a crowdfunding project in order to be able to raise money to create a solo exhibition of all new work in Melbourne. Pozible is the Australian counterpart to Kickstarter. It enables people to fund projects that they find intriging and want to see become reality. If you click the link below you can read all about my proposal, my plans for the future and what I have been up too recently. If you have not heard of Pozible or Kickstarter before, all will be clarified when you read my proposal, all will be made clear as too what these sites offer and how this project will work. If you decide to help me by donating, there are lots of different rewards to compensate for your support. If you donate and I do not reach my target amount then the money will not be taken from your bank account. It is only if I reach my goal amount that the money goes towards my project. I look forward to keeping friends and fans of my artwork posted as too how this project is going and I will update everyone as much as possible.  If you have any questions you can email me at


Captain Murphy's The Killing joke video

A fan made music video for the Captain Murphy track The Killing Joke, that Captain Murphy liked so much he made it the official video. Below is a 35 minute video released last year on VHS for the Duality Mixtape that had the internet guessing Captain Murphy's real identity. It was later revealed at LA's Low End Theory that the true identity of the Captain was producer Flying Lotus rap alter ego. A few weeks later on New Years Day I was lucky enough to be seeing FlyLo when he closed out his set with a few Captain Murphy tracks. You can download the whole mixtape at the bottom of

Rain on the Sun

After months of not updating my blog I am back.  There were technical issues that I have been unmotivated to fix until now, so after a little work I am able to post and keep everyone up to date again.  This is a video from NASA that I have wanted to share for the last few months.  It shows a spectacular solar flare that rains down molten matter on the surface of our Sun. My new favorite solar flare clip.

This is a trailer for a new series, Hello, Again, in which a current artist covers a past song.  For the first episode Beck covers Sound and Vision from Bowie's classic album Low.  The full video and song will be posted on February 10th.  Below is the original Bowie version, as well as a remix reinterpretation that Beck did last year for a Philip Glass tribute album, which is definitely one of my favorite songs from 2012.

Sea Donkey of the Pacific Northwest

I did the linework on this a few years ago and it has sat around since then. I saw a photo that Jennifer Hamilton took and it inspired and gave me vision as to how I would colour this. I used Jen's photo for the background and then coloured this on Photoshop. You can see more of Jen's fantastic photographs at: Jen's 1000 Photos

Avengers VFX Reel

ILM has released the show reel they have submitted for the Academy Awards which shows just how impressive the visual effects work they did for the Avengers.  When I originally heard that they were filming in Cleveland instead of New York it sounded like an odd choice because they were going to have to replicate the big apple, which sounded like unneccisary work.  All the shots flying through the city and between buildings would not have been possible in New York and the magnitude of destruction, it maske perfect sence why they choose to shoot the way they did.  The VFX are flawless in this movie and it really deserves this Oscar.  I won't be watching that boring shit to find out though.

Buddha and the Tree of Life

Spent all night colouring this one and I'm pretty damned excited about the way it turned out.  Cosmic.

A little colour.  This is just roughed in so there will be more detail to add.

Did this for a tattoo design commission and tomorrow I will colour it up.
