For the first time in a long while Telstra doesn't look like an bad late eighties / early ninties throw back identity. I heard via the grape vine that Interbrand Sydney worked on the identity re-invigoration. This could be partly their work. I think the logo still looks like it was designed by a grandad who thinks he look...

I love this work because of the comical feel to it. Though the image itself may not be humorous, Ben seems to put a comic element in most of his work, be it an angle, a facial expression or some hideously retro wallpaper. Ben Sanders works in Ballarat under the name The Milk Agency, and is well known for his Vodafone adverts). The retro element is quite similar to artists such as SHAG, who has a v...

Shepard Fairey's aesthetic originated from his interest and participation in street and sticker art whilst growing up. Breaking into the mainstream with his world wide sticker phenomenon - Andre the Giant Has a Posse, which later became Obey Giant, Fairey shot to fame. I love Shepard's work because of the street art stencil feel to it as well as the fact that his work is highly meaningful and sy...

He also happens to be a graduate of Shillington Melbourne. Here's a stop motion video of Marshall in action. To see more of his fantastic work visit his ...

If I could get anyone to draw my portrait I think it would have to be the very talented Melbournian artist, Bec Winnel. Bec's portraits are just so wonderfully soft and feminine. It would be hard for even the the staunchest of tomboys not to want to don a pretty floral dress and cherry lipgloss after looking at her work. She's been ...
