I don't know why I came up with this I think I had been watching some kids show and thought if mowers and rakes can talk why not spoons and spatulas. I also have plans to make them sing and dance with a kitchen sink for a background

This is an example of my retouching for portfolio reasons only. I imagined the client to want the shot without the toy in it.

This DL flyer is a followup to the previous one, with more services being provided, a listing of the services was used as it was hoped customers would stick them on their fridges for future reference.

The client needed a DL flyer to advertise the new ownership and the services that they would now provide. He didn't have any existing product photography of the fruit and veg, milk or bread, so I took the shots, adjusted the images and deep-etched them in PS. He also wanted to bring attention to his free home delivery service so I illustrated the delivery van with driver as well. As you can see this is your classic retail brief with heaps of information to go into a small space with the emphasis on everything, I think I pulled it off and the client has reported new customers that are now eager to use his services and not only regularly purchase milk and bread but also pick up a couple of other items while they are there.

This illustration was done as a bidding piece when I was short listed for a character development job. He was going to be a mascot of an African coffee grower and exporter, he is based on an African Zebu antelope crossed with Bullwinkle. Unfortunately the buyer went with another artist but I still like the piece so have included it here.

This design was printed directly onto the CD, apart from designing and creating the the artwork to specifications in illustrator and photoshop, I also managed the printing, getting quotes from different suppliers and recommending direct printing rather than CD labels.

The brief was for a country feel but not howdy dudey. The distressed look was used to give it an old barn feel.

This client was after a business card as he wasn’t being taken seriously when he wanted to develop potential opportunities. Now when he hands them his card they pay more attention to him.

This client is an investment advisor and manages his own as well, he was after a logo that showed his interest in property but also his interest in other investments. So I designed it with the stylized house device on the left and left the lines open on the right, giving it the open ended feel he wanted.

Having grown up with a mum, grandfather and great grandfather who were all artists I have been exposed to art and music for my whole life as my grandfather used to make and play his own guitar's and banjo's as well.
