iPhone hunger ......

It comes out in the USA on Friday - possibly into Australia mid to late 2008.
Will my old Nokia brick and series 1 iPod keep going until then .... will dear old Telstra carry it (do they know it exists !) Have they a FUD campaign in readiness ?
I want one NOW .....................

Recent samples

Here are a few samples of work I've completed over the last 12 months. In truth I've just been playing in Photobucket and seeing what it does - not sure if I really like this one !!!

Chris Wilson from Canberra

Quick caricature of Chris Wilson from Canberra ACT. Chris is a cartoonist and a fellow member of the Australian Cartoonists Assoc. He made the mistake of posting his photo on the ACA website - 'Confucius say don't post your photo where caricaturists lurk '

Marion Van Der Wiel

Completed this caricature of Marion Van Der Wiel, a very good Dutch caricaturist and a fellow NCN member. Used Artrage 2.0 software which faithfully replicates traditional painting / sketching methods - still getting the hang of it - but very impressive. As a CS3 owner how do they make software this good ?
At $19.95 - ridiculous cheap - are you listening Mr Adobe !

Something completely different .....

Well away from my normal stuff - I was asked to paint a long dead favourite pet from an old faded photo.
Done using Artrage 2.0 software and finished in Photoshop CS3.
An Australian Cattle dog the Blue Heeler - they can be cranky individuals.
A pleasant change but I was tempted to give him big feet and a huge nose !!!
