My illustration style often uses a blend of traditional/manual techniques and a range of digitally based methods. My projects range from narrative inspired and character based scenes and concepts to graphic and technical representations. I have always loved creating images, particularly when inspired by a message or a concept, I particularly love the process of adapting my style to match the visual needs of a creative project.
This project was a client-based, branding exercise for a south american inspired barbecue food truck business, based in Canberra in the ACT. The brief was to visually convey a fusion between south american and modern asian cuisine.
