Here’s some process photos of a Tura Satana painting I completed a couple of months ago. The initial drawing was quite stylised as you can see from the Photoshop rough and the sepia sketch on canvas. As I progressed I felt I wasn’t capturing her unique look despite repainting her face a couple of times. Finally I re-gessoed the canvas and started again. This time I went for more realism paying close attention to the shape of her eyes and jawline.

First Born. Initial sketch (biro on notepaper), digital colour rough (Sketchbook Pro/Photoshop), final painting (Photoshop).


I was recently commissioned by Victor Ng of Melbourne law firm Markwell to create illustrations for their website. Victor’s idea was to move away from the generic imagery that’s often associated with lawyers (e.g stock photos of businessmen shaking hands etc) and go for something different and distinctive.

Each image illustrates a heading “Bulletproof Branding”, “We speak human”, “No hourly rate, No surprises” in a style inspired by superhero and EC horror comic art. Attention was paid to bold line work and saturated colours so it would contrast well with the colour scheme and grid like layout of the site.

Check out the illustrations on Markwell’s home page

I’ve included the preliminary sketches for each illustration. The whole process was digital with the sketches and final ink created in Manga Studio. Colour was added in Photoshop.
