Collect Rare Digital Assets on KnownOrigin.io

You can now collect exclusive limited editions of my character illustrations over on KnownOrigin.io – a unique online gallery that allows collectors to purchase rare digital assets that are permanently embedded into a blockchain.

The idea behind KnownOrigin.io is simple: “Can we use the power of the Blockchain to mint Digital Assets for artwork that evolves proof of ownership, provenance, and authenticity?”

Each artwork has a finite supply, with editions tracked separately on the ledger. The platform provides a reliable source of ownership and authenticity, protecting any investment indefinitely.

Visit KnownOrigin.io to find out more and see the artworks on offer.

Collab Nation Experiment 5 Exhibition

Collab Nation is a collaborative art project featuring international artists, illustrators & doodlers from all backgrounds.

Each artist taking part starts a drawing and then posts it on to another artist to add to. This continues until 4 artists in total have collaborated on a drawing, a process which produces exciting works of art and sometimes brilliantly unpredictable results.

Review: BenQ PD3200U Monitor

As HD/4K screens have become the norm for most tech users, working on a decent monitor has become an essential part of my design set up when creating on-screen graphics. I can’t be without one! Having previously used BenQ’s BL3201PT, I had high hopes for their PD3200U model which is from a newer line of monitors built specifically with designers in mind.

#TwitterArtExhibit 2018

The #TwitterArtExhibit is an annual exhibition which invites artists of all skill levels from across the world to donate an original piece of post card sized artwork to raise funds for an elected charity in the host country.

Here’s my submission (above) which was created using watercolours, posca paint pens and a bit of collaging. I usually struggle with watercolours but after watching some YouTube tutorials and experimenting with layering, I found a technique that worked and ended up having fun with it.

The Exhibit runs from April 7 to April 29 at the Strathnairn Arts Gallery in Canberra, Australia. The elected charity for this year’s show is the Pegasus Riding for the Disabled of the ACT Inc.

As the exhibition name suggests, Twitter plays a big part in the event so if you can’t make it in person, head over to @twitrartexhibit where the admins are sharing artworks and photos from the event.
