New Work

I'm very happy to release the first illustration in a new series of work for 2011. Inspired by visits to dad in the 1980's and looking at his Pink Floyd Albums, collections of feathers and interest in space and the galaxy I dedicate this first work to him (Angelo). 

This particular image is called Space Dreaming and incorporates my new love of geometric forms and triangles, bright fushcia's, lemons, limes, sky blues, teals and rich blacks. Then splatters of yellow like dad's triple J t-shirt from the 80's that I use to wear.

I guess this is the beginning of a nostalgic series of work....
