If you're lucky enough to be jetting off this month with Jetstar, then check out their latest inflight magazine. My two prints 'The Jungle Room' and 'Pineapple Mary' sitting pretty in an Hawaiian Island Style editorial. Complete with pineapples, flamingoes and tropical goodness, they look right at home.

Such sad news about the recent death of a true music icon, David Bowie. I could bang on about him and his music for days but decided to draw this instead. China Girl now available as a limited edition giclee print in the shop.

Happy Valentines lovers!
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.
Here's something warm and fuzzy to say thanks for all support this year. Whether you commissioned me for work or bought something from the online shop. We loves ya! Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Hope 2016 is a goodun!

Another epic live drawing event was held outside Myer last month in the Bourke St mall for the lead up to the Melbourne Cup carnival. It featured myself and fellow fashion illustrators Emma Leonard and Angie Rehe. We drew up a storm for 7 hours! Drawing outfits live from the street. Did I draw you?

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.

It was National Lipstick Day on the 29th July. Yes there is apparently such a thing!
Lipstick is thought to have been invented by ancient Mesopotamian women who crushed jewels to decorate their lips. Cleopatra's lipstick was made from crushed carmine beetles, while shinier lipsticks were made from fish scales.
We've come a long way baby. Pucker up!
A quick sketch of a couple of fave looks from the amazing Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture AW15 collection in Paris. No computer, just pencils on paper. I just love that orange and black dress! So lush.
