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.

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.
