Dames of Throne

Art produced for a 'Game of Thrones' themed Burlesque show called 'Dames of Throne'

Edit- Just to clear up any misunderstandings, the woman in the wolf piece is supposed to be a female personification of Jon Snow (a Joan Snow if you will) and not Arya Stark.

I have a blog? Oops, I forgot...don't be MAD

Well, it's been 5 months since my last blog post. Very sorry to those who still tune in but as most people do these days, the majority of my new work ends up on Facebook...but I'm finally getting around to updating the old blog. So enjoy this avalanche of recent work...

This is a MAD magazine from earlier this year...both versions with and without text. Not big on the graffiti fonts they used but it's kinda necessary to show this version as it completes the gag of the artwork.

This was created with a shaded pencil drawing, scanned, coloured and blended in Photoshop.

The Alpha Zeta Experiment

Myself and fellow artists from The Drawing Book Studios and our subgroup called 'The Affectors' recently had a themed exhibition titled 'Monsters'. This is my contribution to the night. Created in Zbrush using Alpha Skinning (thus the title).


I also created a short, fun process video for the exhibition launch as well. Chris Wahl- The Alpha Zeta Experiment

New Year sketches

I was a bit slow off the mark this year with art due to moving house and having a little slump in creativity...but, I'm back at it with a renewed enthusiasm. Here are some sketches from 2013 so far...

Hoth Intruder

It's been 5 years between them but I finally got around to doing an accompanying piece to my Chewbacca Hoth Encounter illustration. This Han Solo piece was done for Acme Archives and was launched at the recent Star Wars Celebration Expo in Orlando, Florida. Below you can see some work in progress of the art.

King Triceratops

Done for a dinosaur playing card set for Dino Wars/Jurassic Lounge and the Australian Museum.

Double barrel Revolver

A couple more rock illustrations done for REVOLVER magazine.

Danger 5's Ilsa

Some fan art for the fun Aussie TV show Danger 5.

A load of garbage...

Revolver Rebels

Two recent illustrations for Revolver magazine in the US. They were for their 'Rebel Meets Rebel' articles where up and coming musicians interview their idols. The first was Jeremy McKinnon (A Day to Remember) interviewing Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), and the second was Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) interviewing Pat Benatar. A lot of fun to do.


Meanwhile in the Australian Outback...

Two different bits of art but in similar settings. The first one is some Tank Girl fan art done for a recent challenge over at the OzComics group on Facebook. I've been a huge TG fan for decades, and I might have some very interesting news to share in the near future.

The second piece was a mural puzzle done for Optus. In the mural is hidden 26 movies all with an Australian link (actor, director, location etc). See how many you can get.
