Illustrators Australia Update

I've updated my Illustrators Australia page for the first time in a while, just sticking in some new drawings and writing a little blurb to spruik myself.

No new drawings to show, but I don't think I've shown this before, so here's a business card design I did for a very talented violinist friend.

I dunno...

Feeling an intense lack of motivation to do anything creative. This is the best I could come up with after forcing myself to draw. I hear pandas are in this season.

A bunch of quotes that made me think, smile or both.

I don't believe in everything these people have to say, but these excerpts interested me enough to save them. Have a read and think for yourself.

"We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." ~ Carl Jung

"Change is the end result of all true learning." ~ Leo Buscaglia

"he who defines himself
can't know who he really is" ~ Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, Verse 24

"None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand." ~ José Ortega y Gasset

"The natural tendency of the mind is to compare and contrast everything. One side of your mind says “this is the right choice,” while the other side says “you’re joking right?” This discord creates a battle of a judge and a victim inside your mind. To free your mind you have to transcend the judge and the victim. After all, does it make much sense that the same voice that caused you to do something is now chastising you? Regain the freedom of your mind by being impeccable with yourself, and never using your mind against you." ~ Jonathan Nasman

"I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning." ~ Aleister Crowley

"An intellectual is a man who says a simple thing in a difficult way; an artist is a man who says a difficult thing in a simple way." ~ Charles Bukowski

"If you're not amazed at how naive you were yesterday,
you are standing still.
If you're not terrified of the next step,
your eyes are closed.
If you're standing still and your eyes are closed,
then you're dreaming that you're awake.
A caged bird in a boundless sky." ~ Jed McKenna


Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I could give you an excuse, but it wouldn't fix anything.

Here's an oddity from a Peanuts animation that I thought I'd share with you. I fell in love with this piece of music the first time I saw The Man Who Wasn't There.

I'll leave you with that. Catch ya soon.
