"Green Knight" & Pencilpop! exhibition

I'm very honored to be included in the "Pencilpop!" group exhibition happening at Eyeball Kicks on Cuba street. It's my first collective showing and there's some fairly illustrious names whom I will be showing amongst. The premise is, it's ten artists showing ten pencil based pieces to celebrate 10 years of Wellington's best pop art gallery. Exhibition opens at 6 pm - 2nd of October and runs to the 16th of October. Seeya there! 
- Here's a couple of sample images of my piece "The Green Knight" which is a little celebration of our pagan roots and the capricious forces of nature.

Disney's "Tomorrow Land", social media promotion

A series of illustrators were asked to take visions of the future, as envisioned by fans on the "Tomorrow Land" Facebook page and bring them to life artistically. I was privileged enough to be involved and here's the results...

 First version
Revised version

“Global defense system from rogue asteroids, cures for the common cold and other illnesses, teleportation, weather machine so the planet can be completely habitable.”

“Electric public cars, electric broadband highway with solar panels to feed the cars and the city. The road system with overpass and tunnels to be set up like a circulation system without traffic lights. Green architecture. Free health. Free education. Free services of water. Free real estate.”

"Similar to the rotating building in Dubai, buildings would rotate in order to reduce energy consumption and utilise solar power by changing direction during the day to follow the sun's transition through the sky. The rotating would be subtle and unnoticeable but it would also harness kinetic energy. They would be made out of renewable resources, insulated and temperature controlled so that it wouldn't be consuming more than its daily allowance of energy use. Encourage recycling, diets would be specially designed and no one would consume more than their daily intake. The buildings would also be uniform in appearance and able to camouflage by adapting the exterior image to blend in with nature, this would prevent aerial attacks. --- sounds like a fun world doesn't it? Utopia can only be achieved when everyone has the same lot in life and greed/selfishness
is abolished."

“I see a world full of love and peace. A world where children can grow up safe and know they are loved and they what they need. A land filled with trees and flowers, birds, wildlife and fauna living hand in hand safe and protected. A place where the simple things in life are remembered and cherished. Somewhere when you think of something new we work together to create it. Where children can grow without the pressure of competition.”

War Cry Cover

I was commissioned by the fine team at the New Zealand division of the Salvation Army to design a cover for their "War Cry" magazine. It was a somewhat special edition as it celebrated 150 years of the Salvation Army internationally. Countless folk including myself and my extended family have been blessed by the tireless good works of this organisation, so here's to another 150 years!

Fundraising Poster

This is a fundraising poster made on behalf of a very good (and very musical) friend, Sialei Anamani. Here's a little more information on the very worthy cause for which money will be raised,"I've selected for a pretty fancy International mental health fellowship called the 2015 “Change Leader” Fellowship Programme with The Centre for Dignity, Recovery and Empowerment, but need to raise some money to get there for a conference from the 17th-20th Feb.As part of the fellowship, I'll have an world leader in mental health recovery to mentor me for a year while I work on a couple of amazing projects here in New Zealand. One is about equality in employment for people experiencing mental distress in Wellington, and the other is a national project for reducing stigma and isolation for people at high school with Zeal and 24/7 Youth."If you can't make the gig, but would like to donate, here's the 'Givealittle' page:
