    my book of stuff and things

    So this is me finally getting round to putting up a new sketchbook. I've missed showing my things to all the lovely people of the internet, so now I plan to try and update with new stuff fairly often.

    I'm 22 years old living in the small town of Sydney, Australia, doing a mixture of freelance concepting/illustration, fine arts study, and 'personal' shit.

    I have a group exhibition coming up with a few other people including the spiffy Rodrigo! that we all here love. It's at the Tap gallery in Sydney on June 9.

    Enough of that, I shall start trickling out some pictures.

    Very nice use of colors. I like the diacritic outlines or the lack of them.

    So, no doubt you're good with the portaits. On the last one, the man with the hood reminds me of Altair or Ezio (Assassins Creed). I know, geeeekkk

    Very cool stuff. I think that the placement of the features is especially striking - your proportions are dead on. Great work, keep posting!

    Beautiful book. You have wonderful stroke economy and a fantastic balance between angular and curvilinear lines in your figures. The only thing I would love to see is a more liberal use of colours - the colours you're using so far feels kinda "safe." Would love to see what kind of results such a stroke economy combined with slightly more ballsy colours would yield. Just a thought

    really nice stuff - this one's a fiver.
