My art practice is a mixed bag of graphic design, sign-writing and healthy adoration of Australiana. Throughout my childhood and adolescence I’ve been surrounded by my dad’s love for craftsmanship and humour. Namely in his collection of enamel signs, automobiles, Footrot Flats comics and Mad Magazines. These influences all resided in my dad’s shed. For me, all of these had a common thread in their graphics. Whether it be brand decal on a lathe or the signwriting on a truck door I have always been fixated on the graphic itself, rather than the piece of equipment it was adorning or advertising. Via mouse, paintbrush or pencil; my work has to have passed through my hand at some point of the design process. For the most part, I aim to keep a fairly balanced graphic style occasionally thrown out of whack with a few imperfections.
