    Hi Ash!

    Thanks heaps, I’m glad you like the series!

    The palette series are all made in Photoshop. I used an inking brush by Kyle T Webster, but a standard flat Photoshop one would have worked fine too.

  2. Couldn’t stop thinking about this Taishō era poster, so I painted my own version of it.

    SHARKS. This was an awesome commission I had recently from Sacha Judd, creator of http://www.backofanapkin.co.nz/ for a presentation. My favourite is the whale shark, followed by the shark attacking the internet.

    I love this series and wish I could buy prints of it! The commissioner is very very lucky. :D

    I might ask if it’s okay to sell prints. She commissioned them for a presentation rather than for personal display.

    I think they’d make pretty great postcards!

  10. Mermaid drawn for a friend’s birthday. This has been a project in the works for a long time, so I’m very happy she’s finally finished. The final version will be printed at A2 size, and my guess is it’s going to look fantastic.
