PLAYBOY FEMLIN

Late last year I received an email from Playboy US asking me to create an updated version of Leroy Neiman’s Femlin. I was beyond excited and flattered. I have always loved Neiman’s mischievous, nymphish character he created for the Party pages of Playboy magazine in 1955 and continued to create in the 60’s and 70’s.

It was so fun to work on this. It’s not often I receive a job where nudity is actually encouraged! And the art directors at Playboy were so lovely to work with.

I’m yet to see it in print but here are some of the images which are in the new quarterly Playboy magazine which launched Jan 18th 2019. Keep your eyes peeled at quality news stands.

BITCHCRAFT CALENDAR

Calling all covens, lovers of all things witchy, bitchy and little bit wicked! I had such a fun time working on the Bitchcraft Calendar -The Art of Being A Wicked Woman by Workman Publishing. Pairing my illustrations with my kinda mantras like ‘My Crystal Ball tells me that you’re full of shit’. Makes the perfect gift for any wannabe witch or cynic.

NSFW GROUP SHOW AT SPOKE ART SAN FRANCISCO

I was recently asked to be a part of a group show, NSFW at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The show featured over 40 female and femme identifying artists who explored the topic of female sexuality. The varied works included painting, embroidery, neon and prints. Some of the artists involved were Miss van, Laura Berger, Jessica Hess, Petite Luxures, Jessica So Ren Tang, Winnie Truong, Robin Eisenberg, Meryl Pataky, Sabrina Elliot and more. Dasha Matsuura curated the show and you can read her interview about the show in Juxtapoz magazine here. Plus another interview here.

LEILANI

Aloha! A new print is in the store and somehow I forgot to post it here! Following on from China Girl, this is Leilani, featuring all things Hawaiian. The name was inspired by the Hoodoo Gurus song of the same name, taken from their classic 80’s debut album, Stoneage Romeos. It’s still a fave of mine. Leilani is a Hawaiian name that means heavenly flower.

My great grandfather lived in Hawaii for sometime and came back to Australia to design and build his home inspired by his travels, complete with palm trees. It was a very unusual design for 1905. He named it Hale Mauka (house on the hill) and it still stands today.

She is available in A3 size up to A0 poster size. Shown below holding the A2 size. Head to the shop for more details.

BUILT TO SPILL

I recently had the pleasure of designing a poster for Built To Spill's latest Australian tour by Feel Presents. Built to Spill are an American indie rock band that formed in the 90's and are touring their latest album, 'Untethered Moon'. I wanted to go with a comic book cover space theme. I always love to be able to combine my love of illustration and hand drawn type, and even better a space girl. Inspired by the lovely Jean Shrimpton.

VOGUE'S FASHION'S NIGHT OUT AT MYER

Last Friday night was Vogue's Fashion Night Out in Melbourne and I was asked back to sketch outfits live at Myer. Each outfit is quickly sketched on a body template and the customer gets to keep the drawing as a memento of their outfit of the day. It's always fun to meet and draw such different stylish ladies, see the current trends and draw like a crazy lady! Some people waited in a queue for over an hour so I hope I got to draw you! I went as quick as my fingers would go.

Here are some of my fave sketches of the night. Lots of leather, long coats, capes and black. Well it was Melbourne! Thanks to Jacky Winter, Myer and Vogue Australia for having me.

You can check my instagram page for a little flipagram of the day @nerylwalker

JUNGLE BOOGIE!

My printed Jungle Room cushions just arrived in the mail! I am super chuffed with the quality. The colours are spot on and they are printed on a soft linen textured fabric, not too dissimilar to a backcloth which I love! I've attached some close up pics of the fabric below to show the texture. The same image appears on the front and back and they are finished with an invisible zip. Sweet!

There will be more designs to come but I currently have just a few of the Jungle Room cushions 16" x 16" (41 x 41cm) available for sale in the shop, retailing for AUD$55 plus GST. Sold without the insert.

Registered postage in Australia is $7.50.  International postage with tracking is $23.
