Subway And Their Subliminal Onions

Have you ever walked into a Subway Restaurant and noticed that their coloured triptych artwork of vegetables on the wall catches your eye, for some unknown reason you are compelled more than you probably thought you would be with the mixed vegetables dripping with wetness, freshness? Why? Why am I so fascinated with three panels of mix vegetables in a …

Interpreted Wisdom Book Concept Art

I was going through my backups looking for some old articles that I wrote and came across some of the original book cover concepts that I was playing with when designing the cover art for my book. Enjoy.    

What Happened To Maitland’s Jocko Graves?

Not too long ago, a man entered the shop where I was working here in Maitland and asked me how he could find the one I knew as Jocko Graves. This middle-aged man told me he had brought his entire family up from Sydney to experience the sites of Morpeth and decided it was also the perfect opportunity to come …

Another sign of the end of the world

The end is near people… There are things in live that we love as a child and as we get older our peers or society in general frown upon you enjoying. If you rocked up to a playground to play on a swing by yourself you look odd and potentially may come off looking like a sexual predator. We can’t enjoy lollies …

Where Do Babies Come From?

We all know that all mothers consider their new born baby as the most beautiful thing in the world. Even if truthfully, it could be the ugliest thing ever to grace the planet with their recent arrival. But most of us will go along with it and say, “Ohhh what a lovely baby.” Sometimes ugly babies grow up to be …

Do You Remember Your First Time?

For some guys, it’s something that needs to be sorted out as quickly as possible and most of the time with the first thing that has a hole, a heartbeat and something… preferably warm and moist.

That ‘CONNECTION’ Thing

When talking about the feelings two people have towards each other, what defines what some call a ‘CONNECTION’ between the two parties? I was told by a female I liked one time that there was no ‘CONNECTION’ between the two of us. I understood what she meant, but after a while thought about it and realised it was a bit …

The Art Of The Fart

We have learned that basically everything with a heart, farts. This includes rich people, politicians, priests and the even the queen. Obviously the best time to fart is when you are alone or better still, on a toilet, at a beach or a concert where no one can work out who dealt the smelly blow. Sometimes deli queues are risky …

In The Pursuit Of Happiness

They say that people need people. They say that if you don’t associate with other human beings you will die. They say that because they tested this theory on rats, mice and other laboratory animals. They say this, but surely, being with the wrong person can be equally deadly. So the adage should be; people need the RIGHT people. I …

Wouldn’t It Be Nice..

You know how it is: you’re sitting at your office desk pushing in the same 10,000 digits you’ve pushed the day before, and the day before that, or you’re working behind a counter serving asshole, unappreciative customers who would rather see you die than acknowledge you as a fellow human being by saying hello or smiling. Perhaps you’re shopping at …
