Island Continent Studio

This is the blog for my new design studio Island Continent which is set to launch in February specialising in all things fashion, design, art and Oz. After a solid and successful 8 years, working for some incredible dream clients, awards in NY and Cannes, breaking into the US Editorial market and fulfilling my childhood dream of illustrating for USA Rolling Stone, it's time for a kit-kat and a well earned good nights sleep. So I am scaling back my illustration commissions for 2012 and only taking on special projects for the immediate future. To keep up with all the action follow the tumblr for Island Continent where my 30 years of Archives will be unleashed in full technicolor glory. <3 http://www.islandcontinent.com.au/

I was invited to participate in the book by the fantastic Martin whom has written several book on illustration particularly in the fashion illustration genre. Released in 5 languages by Batsford LTD and featuring over 1000 fashion illustrations from across the globe (including Australia:) on 416 pages, I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.

"The visual bible for fashion illustrators, the Bigger Book of Fashion Illustration is now in its second edition, with all-new content. It provides the best and most exciting fashion illustration from around the world today, from France to Australia, India to Mexico. Digital masterpieces as well as traditional drawing and painting are included in this unprecedented display of fashion expression. Every kind of fashion is covered, from women's couture to tweenies, from lingerie to lipstick, swimwear to separates. Plus new for this edition, a range of fashion sketchbook work for insight into the creative and technical process. With over 1000 illustrations, the book is an invaluable acquisition for students and college libraries internationally but should be on the shelf of all those involved in fashion and graphic design as fashion illustration continues its onslaught on today's media."

Something different. One of my artworks was referenced for questions on last years VCE Studio Arts Exam paper here in Victoria Australia. Takes me back to those uncomfortable plastic chairs and cold dusty exam rooms of Year 12. How strange life is.


Advertising Age Magazine US got in touch to commission an illustration for an article titled "Why $#*! Our TV's Say Is No Longer Taboo" Little did I know that the issue would feature an illustration of The Simpsons! by Julius Preite who also illustrated the fabulous spread of The Simpsons go to Paris for Harpers Bazaar in August 2009.

You can read the full Ad Age article here, it's a great read http://adage.com/article/mediaworks/sex-obscenities-norm-broadcast-tv/226990/ Thanks to Jesper from Ad Age for the great commission.
