This is my entry for this year's Illustrators Australia 9x5 Exhibition. Each year IA members receive a 9x5 inch piece of plywood in the post. Ages ago I decided that every year I would shape my wood into an object after painting it, because I thought that it might detract from my comparative lack of illustration skills. Anyone who knows what I make now on a day to day basis will realise that painting on wooden shapes has become a defining feature of my work. So that's how a negative can become a positive, I guess.
...Having said that, I am not entirely happy with these two!
Wondering who they are? Here's a clue: the theme of this year's exhibition is RAPTURE. Here's another clue, thanks youtube.
