Cassette cover art insert for New Zealand Band PSYCHIC MAPS. The album title - “HELLO, I’M CHARLIR SHEEN”. The design was created in collaboration with the good people at FULL ON IDLE. A label devoted to releasing sweet Australian & New Zealand bands on tape. Keep up the good work F.O.L.
This is the DUCK DUCK CHOP 7 Inch Record cover art. I drew it back in the year 2000 and 9. It has 2 tracks which are titled BLOOD IN A PLASTIC BAG / FINAL. Essentially what we have here is a fat, naked man sitting on an office chair with his head in an oversized pencil sharpener. The “face sharpenings” are creating a loverly ravelling decoration that carries over to the back cover. Oh and he is flanked by his trusty finger-face dog.
Here’s a T-Shirt design I did for a rad Melbourne band called DOZERS. Keeping in theme with stating the obvious… here you have a gang (not pod) of whales. A Humpback Whale, Sperm Whale and Blue Whale, all ‘breaching’ (thats the official term). Hope you like it.
2 years ago I created the cover art and packaging for an album by the Melbourne residing / Irish sounding band - THE GO SET. The album titled “Another Round in Melbourne Town” was a live set recorded at East Brunswick Club (May 2009).
