VIRGIN AUSTRALIA In-Flight magazine commission

October 10, 2011

It's been too long since my last blog entry but much to report!

The last 4 months have been the most demanding and stimulating of my career so over the next few entries I'll be putting visuals to timeframes.

First off is the Virgin Voyeur mag illustration for the article 'From Australia to Silicon Valley' about young Aussie entrepeneurs making a splash in the Tech capital of the world.

I loved being in the same mag as Chris Lillee; and Joshua Monaghan's layout gave the illo a huge presence when you turned the page. The use of watercolour was at his suggestion and it made for a really interesting departure from my usual treatments of my inkline style.

Some of the guys featured in the article were using my illos of them as personal avatars which I took as quite a compliment.
