Import Bible

Cause I’m VIP YO!

All The Goodies!

Their stickers are so awesome.

I’ve been internet friends with David of Import Bible for years now and we’ve both mutually supported each others ventures. He’s always had a great product. Super slick, super refined.

CURVY Women’s Creative Conference
























I went to support Nana who was invited to be a part of a panel discussion at this year’s inaugural CURVY Women’s Creative Conference at aMBUSH, Central Park.

There were 8 women on the panel and the topic was “The Art of making it”. The session kicked off with everyone introducing themselves with their story on how they got to where they are now (Nana’s story was particularly awesome, it really came from the heart).

Topics touched on Art vs. Design, making a living doing what you love. Having to do your time with crap work to make ends meet/gain experience. Business; Art schools should teach business, how to invoice, connections to legal help with agreements, etc. The topic of kids and a lack of time was brought up too; priority shifts as well as success stories of mothers who are creative directors at the top of their game. Social media, Instagram, how do Artists keep up with the pace of social media marketing. Advertising targeted specifically at women, connectivity, ultimately a lot was brought up in such a short period of time!

St George College Design Talk

Talk posters pinned up around the design floor.

Getting ready to talk, of-course I had to have some music playing in the background!

Love these portrait paintings on the art floor.

I gave a 1hr Industry Design Talk at St George College yesterday. It’s been over a year since I last spoke, and I was a little more nervous and excited than usual this time around. I love public speaking, but it doesn’t matter how many times I’ve spoken, I still get nervous the night before!

Krysti goes to school there (she’s studying art) so like last time, she tagged along for a bit of support. I had to use a PC to present with, which really threw me off, so my visual presentation suffered but I’m sure I still inspired, and managed to say all the things I wanted to say!

JDM Concept Logo




I sincerely never thought I’d ever see my logo design work on a wheel, let alone a wheel made by one of the largest and most respected Japanese wheel manufacturers.

Well done to JDM Concept for this collab wheel design with Work Wheels Japan! I’m stoked, for me and them!

RB26 x x Toyo R888 Sticker

Hey look Mum! I’m on a sticker!!!

A little while back Anthony Crivelli of sent me some stickers along with a cool illustration of my GT-R, which also features myself peering out of a stack of Toyo R888 tyres. When I posted it online a few people expressed interest in buying it if it was on a T-Shirt, but I’ve decided to make a few stickers instead. You can find them in the Zen Shop:

Oh Shit. Scien and Klor on the stage.

Klor, myself and Scien.

Myself, Scien and Stella, my hot date for the night.

As part of Vivid Sydney I got to see 123KLAN (all the way from Canada) talk last night at aMBUSH Gallery Central Park. I first met Scien from 123KLAN 12 years ago at Semi-Permanent Conference. We clicked, he’s mad. Scien even tagged my name for my business cards back in the day.

The talk was awesome. I would have loved more time with this guy, but was great to briefly catch up with Scien before and after his talk.

Design VS Art – Why I’m not a designer anymore


So today. I got this question thrown at me via Facebook Messenger: “How do your practices differ when creating a commissioned design project to creating art for yourself, i.e do you feel constrained by the perceived difference between design and art?”.

Really good question. For a while there I truly intended to give my clients my best. Sometimes I’d stay up till 3am working on client work, with my fave music up, in my PJ’s, only to have the secretary the next day in the client meeting say she doesn’t like yellow, and eventually having the client have me change things, which in turn makes my work ugly.

This hurts.

A few years of this crap; design by committee (when you present your work to clients and the client gathers opinions from their business partners, secretaries and mothers), uneducated clients (not everyone gets good design), clients who fail to trust me as a designer, it was enough for me to always design with compromise in mind. IE: I never give my clients everything I’ve got anymore. I only put my everything into my own work, which in this case you can call “art”.

So I very rarely do design work for others anymore these days. I suppose I’ve taken being my own boss to new heights?!

S9 Caddy


Ved’s taken delivery of his new Caddy (it’s awesome and completely tricked out inside too). He’s asked me to design some S9 graphics for it. I know Ved. The mission was to design something quite large in size, but subtle and easy to live with (as the Caddy is his daily).

I’ve had designs floating around my head for a month now, and the other day (in Ved’s man cave) I decided to finally get my thumb out of my bum and push out some initial concepts. Ved and I are quite happy with a couple of these! I’m off to a good start! Final refined design soon!
