Groot with Koala (Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy exhibition at GOMA, Brisbane)

Marvel GOMA Brisbane Groot and Koala

Groot with Koala

As soon as I saw Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy at the Marvel Creating the Cinematic Universe at GOMA, Brisbane, I knew I needed to create this picture.

Groot, being a tree, just had to have a koala on him!  And in such a great pose, my little koala just fitted perfectly hugging his arm.

Cute or what?  Maybe Groot could be the Guardian of the Koalas?

Here are a selection of my favourite photos showing costumes, artwork, artist work space, and even the awesome train set from Ant Man!

On Sunday I visited the Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, and one display was this awesome drawing board offering an animation featuring snippets of concept background artwork.

Very mesmerising and inspiring!

Ace Comics June Meetup

On Saturday I joined the Ace Comics drawing group in Annerley.  This was the first time I went to this and was great to meet other illustrators, including people I’d met before at expos.

I drew two pages.  One included Ringo the Ringtail Possum and other characters of mine, but after we ordered pizza for lunch, I soon got in to a turtles mode and created the Australian version – Teenage Mutant Ninja Long Necked Turtles!!

Black Metal Conservation Koalas – Welcome to Hell Reserve

Black Metal Conservation Koalas - Hell Reserve

Black Metal Conservation Koalas – Welcome to Hell Reserve

Here is something a little bit different!  It’s something I created a little while ago, and the characters keep appearing from time to time in my sketchbook.  As I am going to see a band tonight it has put me in the mood to finally share this with you.  For those who know me I like listening to an extreme version of heavy metal called black metal which for the most part has great gothic clothing and war paint but song content is an acquired taste haha.

Since I have been witnessing the destruction of a small section of land clearing at Whites Hill Reserve has been having, I have noticed a decline in my koala sightings which is really sad.  So I thought about this habitat destruction and wondered if the koalas could be brought back from the dead – and if so what songs would they sing to spread the word of their decline?  So I designed three koalas in black metal attire with their first album called ‘Welcome to Hell Reserve’ to sing about their frustrations of losing their habitat, and that they are back to protect it.
