I was digging through some really old artwork (looking for somethign else entirely) and I found an illustration of Vavale as Cosmic Creatrix, way before my style was fully established. So probably from about 7 or 8 years ago, when I was still only working in regular ink, coloured pencil, and cartridge paper.

Hi everyone.

I was the Winner for the 2011 Rose & Bay Award for Crowdfunding, in the Art category. Thanks to those who voted! :)

I highly recommend you go check out the other winners, because they are seriously epic. I have been obsessed with Khaos Komix since discovering them!

So. Those who know my Wandsuna series, know I like to use animals and colours in said Wandsuna series to express other concepts, abstract emotions, people, or feelings, or other things entirely.

Those symbolic connections are based on very personal symbolism. For example, the fox isn't used because of its connection to 'Fox as Totem', and is entirely based on a personal relationship with fox and my encounters with it in 'real life.'

If you could represent an abstract or a concept through a colour or an animal in the Wandsuna mythology, what would you choose? How would you represent your self? And why would you choose that animal, colour, or something else entirely? Would different representations change what it meant? (For example, in the Wandsuna series, a leashed fox means something entirely opposite of an unleashed fox).

Just curious to see how people would build up their own personal symbologies. If you're not comfortable explaining why you'd use certain animals or colours to represent certain things, feel free not to. :)

Another illustration for the Future Imperfect exhibition.
In which my brief was to depict augmented animals
being used for future human profit and gain.
The other in the series is The Sea Shepherd.

Portable Photovoltaic Systems
- original to be available at the Natcon 50 exhibition in Easter 2011 (all things being equal) -

Ravens - originally bringers and stealers of the sun in great mythology - become modified to absorb sun for the people, and then discharge it regularly into power stations.

The 'as totems' expansion oracle deck would - theoretically - be a deck that you could build and expand yourself. With over 250 'as totems' illustrations already, from all the major countries in the world, and the plan to introduce more specialised species, it will be possible to buy limited edition releases, build a base deck, and in the end, create a deck that is specific to your region, your favourite animals, your client's guides, and so on.

The Australian Animal Oracle Deck is a complete deck featuring 72 animals broken down into arcanas such as 'the big players' 'ferals' 'the quiet helpers' and so on. You can see all the images and meanings here:

Obviously I'll be tweaking things, but this is what the actual size of the cards would look like; so you can see the resolution and the quality of the text right now. What do you think?

I loooooove the colours in this. There's tricks to getting red/purple right, I think. Which usually involves staying away from very blue-based purples and sticking with violets and mauves, and staying away from too many orange-based reds and sticking with blue-based reds.

Raaaavens are fun to draw.

I'm in love with this one.

I've been wanting to revisit Platypus energy for ages, and then in a lovely bit of synchronicity, a client emailed me to commission this:

Well, when you get pinged, you get pinged.

It never takes me long to sketch these out anyway. It's that dastardly inking process that gets me.

I actually haven't had a substantial lunch today. I honestly meant to, but then I got distracted so I'm nomming on unsalted almonds instead. )
