So the other day I decided to blow off work and set myself a challenge: make something in 8 hours. This was the result. 

There's no real concept going here - it's an idea I had a while back after noticing the similarity between the textures of certain rock formations and those of African Elephants. This year I've been getting bogged down in huge projects, I really wanted that instant kick and gratification from a quick project. 

Was thinking I'd submit it for Desktopography this year, but it's not happening :,(

Lady Liberty
This is one I've been working on for a few months, for such a significant city I really wanted to get this one right. 

New York blows me away with it's enormous vertical scale and insane perspective down it's long streets and avenues.

I feel the American Dream is more an economical one, than an ideological one - for this reason the wall street bull takes it's position as the head. 

About 250 images comprise this one - probably the biggest collage that I've ever made. All stock shot by myself in New York, in January and June this year.
A collage created from a few hundred photos I've shot around Melbourne over the last year. 

I captured the project progress if you want to check it out:…

I post other work and work-in-progress on my insta too:…
Blockchain Ecosystem 2018
Something I've been working on for the last few months is finally going to print! The work was commissioned for yBitcoin magazine with 120,000 free posters being distributed this year. 

Aiming to be a map of the current landscape of Blockchain, it feature 145 companies and projects. 

Most of the buildings are photo-manipulated from high angle images - most of which I shot myself during travels over the last few years (Because of that, almost all of the buildings are from London, New York, Dubai and Shanghai). Much of the rest has been rendered in Cinema 4D. 


If you are into Bitcoin and Crypto please feel free to share (and credit please). 

Follow me on insta for more frequent posts and work-in-progress:…
Part 3 in this series of walking cities - this time using images I shot in Nashville a few weeks ago. Nashville is such a fun city with a unique and vibrant visual landscape, I simply couldn't pass up on that opportunity.  

I've made a short time lapse of the construction of this image again if you're interested:…
Hey peeps, 

So I started selling some of my work as art prints on Society6 recently. Being the fine people they are, they've featured my work and until the 9th of November are selling it with FREE SHIPPING WORLD WIDE (kind of a big deal when you're ordering stuff to the other side of the world).
