Horiren 15th anniversary

Horiren is a world renowned Japanese tattoo artist, and as part of her 15th anniversary a World Gallery was created to showcase photographs of her work. This involved people from around the world placing the photograph in their workplace or public area, taking a photo of the photo, and sharing via social media on the same day. My modest home studio isn’t the most exciting of locations, so I decided to place it around central Melbourne and shared the most read more…

3 Years of Freelancing

It’s hard to believe that it has already been 3 years since I decided to go it alone and started freelancing. In that time I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some amazing projects for a wide range of clients including AFL Media, Victorian Labor, AAPT, Lifebroker, and Deloitte, and to collaborate with a number of great creative agencies, and production companies. After 3 years I thought it was about time to put together a showreel which is a brief read more…

L’art du pop-up

French author Jean-Charles Trebbi contacted me some time ago asking to include my animation piece Start Running Pico in a book he was writing about pop up books. L’art du pop-up (the art of pop-up) was recently published and traces the history of pop-up books, as well as the mechanics and techniques involved. It’s such a well researched and compiled book, and I’m very honoured to be included in it. Start Running Pico was created way back in 2007 when read more…

Places featured include (in order): CHINA – Beijing, Xi’an, Turpan, Kashgar KYRGYZSTAN – Tash Rabat, Song Kol UZBEKISTAN – Tashkent, Bukhara, Samarkand read more…

Silk Road Part 3: Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is the third and final country I visited on my silk road trip. In my mind I had assumed that being neighbours and having ‘stan’ on the end of their name, that Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan would be reasonably similar to each other. However other than a couple of things such as the food and Russian/Soviet influcences they felt very different. The reasonably flat and stark landscape of Uzbekistan was the most noticeable difference. It felt dry, harsh, and quite read more…

Silk Road Part 2: Kyrgyzstan

Before arriving in Kyrgyzstan it was a country I knew very little about, though I at least knew of it’s existence and roughly were it is located on a map (which tends to be a lot more than most people I speak to). In the past I’ve had a pretty good idea of what to expect of places I’ve travelled to, but the appeal of Kyrgyzstan was that it was unknown and full of surprises. It turns out that most read more…

Silk Road Part 1 : China

It’s now been a while since I’ve added anything to my blog, largely because it’s been an incredibly busy year so far but also because there’s already enough noise and ego out there on the internet. However I thought I’d make an exception to share some images from my recent trip, as it’s an amazing part of the world that few people know much about (which was my main reason for travelling there in the first place). I took a read more…
