A sydney-based artist whose artworks are bold, playful, and colorful. Growing up in a creative household in northwest NSW and studying graphic design in Canberra, He is strongly inspired by music, movies, and pop culture. His works have a strong use of color and appropriate comic book characters for graphic effect; they’re vivid, engaging, and powerful. His process is concept driven and typically begins with working by hand before being completed digitally. As he says, ‘I’ll usually just have an idea or see something that sparks a concept. I then sketch this out ’til I think it’s ready to either draw up onto an object or canvas, or I’ll scan it into my computer and start digitally sketching it up ’til I’m happy with it.’ An obsessive surfer, He would like to 'paint more murals and public art [as well as] get some bigger barrels!'. In the meantime, however, when he isn't creating artworks or illustrations he works as a screen printer, predominantly printing bold and graphic illustration and type work upon t-shirts.

A child of the eighties, it’s clear to see that my work is heavily influenced by his childhood love of classic cartoons, skateboarding culture, comics and anime. My earlier work exploded with bold color pallettes giving life to goonish characters and the world in which they were created, leaving the viewer experiencing nothing short of an LSD flashback. My work has matured and become more refined using simpler but just as bold color pallettes and a much cleaner, individual line style. Working in the graphic design industry for the last 20 years has also strengthened my love for typography and letter design. Consitently producing original, inspiring work since the late 1990’s, I have firmly cemented my position within the Australian lowbrow art and sneaker culture scene. As a result I regularly invited to participate in live paint installations and exhibit in and curate solo and group shows worldwide. Truly an all rounder, able to execute from concept to production on digital and traditional projects ranging from branding and identity to hand painted murals and installations. If you like what you see, please, don't hesitate to get in contact.

A great experience from start to finish! Shannon did a super job of taking our vague initial theme and ideas and developing it into a really fun and personalised concept. The work itself was completed quickly, on-time and without mess or fuss - and the completed mural looks great! Very highly recommended.

Latest Review

Ola was incredible from start to finish. Her designs were totally on brief. She was very happy to come to me to do the work and worked diligently and very hard. The work is exquisite and perfect for what I needed. Thank you so much Ola

Neha was a professional throughout the process. She provide her deliverables on time. She was willing to working within the constraints of the location (she had to work behind hoardings due to mall regulations!!). The final artwork was appreciated by everyone who came across it.

I would tell anybody who is looking for a professional, friendly, and extremely talented sign writer to contact Erno. Thanks to his years of experience the journey from concept to execution was simple and worry-free. Communication was excellent and the results are amazing. Well done!

Australian illustrators to hire, much like illustrators from other parts of Australia, specialise in a specific niche of artwork. An illustrator for hire is a person who creates two-dimensional images for various creative reasons. Some illustrators work alongside large brands or magazines. Others create artwork for children's books or medical manuals. Typical Australian illustrators will choose an area they excel in and focus their talents on that artistic niche. Digital artists can design artwork specific to businesses websites embodying the theme or aesthetic of a company.

Now, there are plenty of cheap illustrators for hire that will get the job done. But, much like all art (big or small projects), good work is worth the price. As mentioned, some illustrators for hire only work in their excelling field. Artists with a deep understanding of the human body may only accept jobs for medical booklets or websites. Cartoonists may veer toward greeting cards, wrapping paper or children's books. There is space and demand for every type of artists within the realm of illustrators.

Despite how many illustrators to hire there are, there will always be demand. New products, businesses, books, brands and ideas are consistently being formed. These concepts need design, making "illustrators for hire near me" quite the popular Google search.

A Melbourne illustrator will often set their hours. These hours can depend on other projects, general availability and, truthfully, project interest. We encourage connecting with illustrators that have a history of working in the field required. Commissioning a medical manual illustrator to design a children's book might be met with uncertainty. Where to hire illustrators? Anywhere. Despite being Australian based, you can connect with an illustrator from across the globe as most designs can be digitalised. A lot of illustrators are more than willing to help form your vision. Let's get creative!
