Mia Taninaka and Lara Allport :: Lost Paradise Festival

We’re fast approaching festival season and we’re thrilled, as ever, to share the visuals by Mia Taninaka and Lara Allport for Lost Paradise Festival 2018.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year, instead of creating just one hero illustration, we developed a suite of festive frames, telling a story of two adventurers on their voyage through hidden wonderlands.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mia sketched the frames, adding colour to some to direct the palette, and then Lara digitally remastered each one to produce the stunning finished result (keeping everything on separate layers so the animation team could work their magic).

The Drawing Arm New Recruit :: Stefan Hunt

We are delighted to welcome Illustrator and Film Director, Stefan Hunt, to The Drawing Arm’s creative ranks.

Stef’s work is naive yet poignant, and a reminder that we were all once children. His favourite subject matter is death, as it puts everything into perspective and is the most universal truth we all share.

In 2017 he launched his most ambitious creative project yet, We’re All Going to Die. Consisting of a published book, a short film and sold out multimedia art festival in Sydney and, most recently, Byron Bay, it aims to empower people to fear less and live more. The festival has also toured New Zealand and the USA.

Having already worked with us to deliver an illustrative makeover for a well known not for profit (visuals to be released shortly), we can’t wait to see what Stef does next.

Mulga :: Commercial Illustration

Mulga is Sydney-based artist, Joel Moore. He draws beards and zombies and zombies with beards and creatures wearing hats and various other oddities such as knife-fighting bananas. He is well-known in Sydney for his signature characters, often composed of textured shapes and intricate lines, they pulsate with untrammelled colour.

Mulga can usually be found outside, painting large-scale murals and writing poems to his beloved monsters.

Elliott Routledge / Lara Allport / Shannon Crees :: Coronation Property

Set to become a destination for creative types, Charlie Parker, a boutique development by Coronation Property, has art woven into its very fabric.

The campaign visuals, inspired by Gillie and Marc, created by Elliott Routledge and Shannon Crees, and digitally remastered by Lara Allport, were used across everything from sales brochures to display suites and a vibrant, large-format mural wrapping the entire site.

It’s so awesome to see Sydney following in the footsteps of creative cities like London, Lisbon and Prague, and designing an urban landscape that’s increasingly rich in public art.

Simon Barrett :: City of Sydney Concept Work

“The idea was to capture the detail and energy of Sydney’s most iconic architecture, in a super bright, free form style. I’ll paint these on giant canvases at some point and sell them for thousands of tonnes of moneys.” – Simon Barrett

Jordan Clarke :: Walk Through the Fire


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Working predominantly in the mediums of embroidery and digital collage, Jordan is fascinated by all things dark, whimsical and vintage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her creations are a collision of Victorian vignettes, rockabilly pin-ups, religious iconography, 20th century circus, tattoo art and fairground lore.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And we are completely captivated.

The Drawing Arm New Recruit :: Andrew Dennis

This week we’re welcoming mural, street and textile artist, Andrew Dennis, to The Drawing Arm.

Andrew is a collector and amalgamator of artefacts, from retro furniture designs to primitive African masks and memorabilia. His constant search for unexpected connections between different facets of human history is a source of artistic intrigue and inspiration.

A prolific mural artist in particular, Andrew describes his style as ‘a cabinet of curiosities’.

And were pretty excited to add him to our cabinet of curiosities.

Mural created with exterior acrylic.
