Just when you thought the lights had gone out. I have just created this custom typeface for brand spanking new Australian band White City Light. An electronic rock fusion, I would describe the music as a progression from pub rock to club rock. The band will be launching online in the weeks to come and marketing the singles as opposed to an album. So this simple template will be the home to an eclectic mix of imagery that suits the particular track. For this one I used a photograph of a stage light combined with an illustration made up of light shards – the band interpreted it as an abstract bird, I love that.
A couple of limited edition shoe prints for Atlanta shoes Italy. The first is a sketchy illustration of some Egyptian elements and a few aliens titled ‘Conspiracy Theory’. The second is nothing more than a frivolous posh print called ‘Regal’. All in good fun.

Would love to share the process of one packaging project with you. This one is for a set of 8 spice samples. The brief is that it needs to look special, something that can be placed on shelf, is easy to open, would look great in a gift pack, fits 8 bags of spices and … Continue reading
I love the challenge of illustrating a character with as few shapes & elements as possible. Featured in Wooden Toy Quarterly, Apple surprise is one of my favs for that reason. I love that moment when you put a few shapes together and then all of a sudden this character is staring back at you full of personality and with a life of its own.
How to communicate the concept of a radio station that plays retro Australian records? A record warped into the shape of Australia. I love a nice curve on a business card now and then.
On request, here are the other tee shirts in the series that I illustrated for FUBUKI. A fusion of Western culture & traditional Japan, let me introduce you to Origami Optimus who fights for peace by shooting paper cranes, Samurai Jedi, Surfing Sumo and the lovely Geisha, blowing bubble gum bubbles as she listens to a bit of Kasabian (well I was when I illustrated her anyway). Wish they were still making the shirts I get lots of enquiries!
Originally illustrated for a range of Fubuki T shirts, my Geisha girl recently featured as a graffiti wall in this Kia ad.
One of my favorite things to create are sets of characters. These novelty cupie doll designs were made for Buzz Products, featuring Skello Cupie, Peace Cupie and Super Cupie.
Enjoy this yummy illustration I created for Three Little Trees kids clothing label. My fav has to be the swirly nosed lollypop with the cheeky toothy grin.
What says “ROCK!” louder than an amplification lead? Nothin’ I tells ya. Nothin’. That’s why I used a lead to create this simple logo for Classic Rock FM (Sydney & Melbourne) via uber cool Sydney ad agency Three Drunk Monkeys. Owned by airwave giant NOVA, Classic Rock FM branding was a privilege to work on due to their openness to non-box-like ideas. For instance, I created the business card below to resemble an old worn concert ticket. Designed to make the owner feel like a rock star, it went platinum with the staff.
Designed for delectable makeup artist Kate Bohn, these deluxe business cards are so pretty.
Please take the time to enjoy this video clip I co created for creative product agency Buzz. Finding a way to sum up what they do was tricky, but the creative approach to product design was key. My favorite part is the pile of products turning into the logo at the end.
Design ain’t always pretty. This was my first crack at set design and styling for 2003 Tropfest winning film ‘Buried’ directed by Tim Bullock.
From the darkest corner of the seediest pub with the stickiest beer wafting carpet comes Muso. Tragically talented. Now available on istockphoto with a five star illustration rating.

My illustrations are now available on istockphoto including this one! Use it commercially or buy it and print your own Chrissy cards. Too cool for School.
Last year in Byron Bay we were deprived of anything resembling summer. Sitting here in my leather jacket with scarf draped around me I feel like the moody dark and damp weather is settling in yet again… oh noooooo! Please enjoy these cloud characters, and find some cool comfort in the invasion of the seasons.
Teaming up with Prodigy Films I am currently working on my most exciting project yet – a kids TV show. The characters have been completed by the incredible Furry Puppet Studio in New York and we are now working on the life size background set, made entirely out of felt! I can’t wait to share it with you but in the mean time, check out some of the amazing puppets from the Furry Puppet Studio portfolio. These are not characters from my project but I will be able to show you soon!
Just launched – Visit the delectable Beautiful Food blog by delicious food stylist Jody Vassallo. A feast for the eyes and the belly, it has been a priveledge to create the branding for this incredibly talented lady.
