Ad agency illustrations

I've done a fair bit of commercial arts work over the years for Aussie ad agency BMF, so I was honoured when they asked me to do illustrations to complement their new website. The brief was to create some paintings with a 50's retro feel to them. A lot of fun.


My fave of the bunch is probably the lobster (lots of fun detail) and the weakest, the surfer (I was tempted not to post him up at all). These are all 100% Photoshop, also using some of my custom brushes.

In the pic below you can see how they were used in the final layouts. They were always intended to act as a corner border to the pages, so they were designed with that in mind.


Here's some closeup detail.
