These illustrations were for the FHM money section.

I came up with concepts for the four types of investments covered in the article:

  • The sharemarket (rollercoaster)
  • Investment funds (managed growth)
  • Property (snakes and ladders)
  • Banking (a safe)

These illustrations were designed just two weeks before the 2008 economic crisis.

Illustrations for an FHM feature called ‘Heal thyself’.

Each illustration accompanied instructions for the treatment of neglected organs, including the heart (time-bomb); lungs and liver (filters); bowel (plumbing) and skin (outer layer).

US empire illustration

Illustration for an ominously titled feature The Last Days of the US Empire.

The story compared the United States to great – but ultimately flawed – civilisations like Rome, ancient Greece and the Maya.
