In May I was commissioned to illustrate FHM’s ‘ultimate lounge room’.
The brief was to combine all of the advertiser products (flat screen TV, blu-ray, laptop, beer cooler and lounge chair) into a single image.
I used a Google Sketchup model for the interior and Ben – FHM Australia’s editor at the time – volunteered to be the beer drinking model.
A series of illustrations on advanced driving techniques for FHM Australia, including how to trail brake (top), power slide (bottom left) and accelerate our of a corner (bottom right).
I had a lot of fun drawing the details in the bubbles, including the Adidas shell-tops. Sometimes it’s the little things…
A parasite that exists in real-life could lead to the Zombie apocalypse, according to FHM Australia.
The parasite is called toxoplasma gondii. When a host (usually small mammals such as rats and mice) become infected, the parasite can change the behaviour of their brain, causing them be drawn to (rather than fearful) of cats. The twist? The parasite is able to reproduce if its host is eaten by a cat.
Rather than medical diagrams I tried to take a more conceptual approach to this illustration. A pair of zombie hands emerge from the fictional reality of the television into our real world…
Here’s an infographic I recently completed for FHM Australia.
The size of the circle represents where a shark is likely to attack you. According to the article sharks don’t actually like the taste of human beings (if they did “it would not be safe to go into the water at all”). For some reason that doesn’t make me feel any safer…

I will upload a scan of the full story once the magazine its newsstands in December.
This illustration is a parody of an Australian television program called Hole in the Wall.
Based on a Japanese game show, Hole in the Wall requires celebrity contestants to fit through holes in a styrofoam wall moving towards them.
The results are often hilarious. Here’s a video clip of the original (and best) Japanese version:
This illustration was commissioned for an article in FHM on so called ‘smart bombs’.
According to New Scientist magazine, the US air force is trying to develop a cluster weapon that would release a swarm of ‘bomblets’ – each identifying and pursuing an individual target.
The question is: how would this weapon distinguish between combatants and civilians? As I tried to show in this illustration a simple red cross can be interpreted as a field target or a field hospital.
