“Public Friendly Caricatures”
Yes, that’s right. Wayne’s caricatures can exaggerate your good points but still make them amusing, but you can request anything you wish.
If you think of me as a bar-man and like an alcoholic beverage you can actually request the potency of your caricature.
The more flattering would be like champagne, the more zany newspaper-editorial style being a stiff scotch whiskey to a more savage being a lethal backyard moonshine, usually for rare instances, like clients in legal stoushes.
So to this end, in addition to the Default ‘Flattering’ caricatures mentioned above, there are five basic ‘blends’>>>
‘Go easy’, ‘Naughty but Nice’, ‘Whatever you Reckon’ and “HIT me with your rhythm stick !”.
Children can look super cute, Guys can look like super cool, and Femme-Fatale flattering for the Ladies.
Options are nearly limitless and prices vary but most common.
Applications have a wide range. From package design, brochures, manuals, books & magazines, PowerPoint display, T-shirt prints and comic strips.
Cartoons are an effective mode of communication in this information overload world of ours. Their popularity is on the increase with government brochures, safety manuals, team building seminars and company mascots.
You may be a teacher wanting to convey an idea to students on a PowerPoint display, yet you cannot think of a concept. Just contact me and I can submit a draft for as little as $50. If you decide to proceed, that fee will be deducted off the price of the final art.
Your business logo is the first noticed image about your type of service or product.
If you have ideas and maybe some reference material such as some similar designs that caught your eye, maybe a magazine cut out, you can bring them along with you to a consultation and I can steer you in the right direction into what I feel will work.
From there we can progress to a series of low cost drafts, until we know that we are on track before proceeding to 'finished art'.
Whether designing a Building, Landscape Garden, Town Planning or just selling a property, my illustration can be an effective communication tool between builders, architects, development applications or potential buyers.
Architectural and Landscape commissions can range from the cheaper loose one colour sketches to detailed realism and can come in a wide range of mediums.
Consultancy with Builders or Architects is usually necessary to obtain the best reference material possible, which can range from Wire Frames from CAD software to plain two dimensional elevations.
Like Graphic Art a series of low cost drafts are an advised procedure before proceeding to finished art as this can save a lot of changes to finished art.
Notable public murals have been a commission for the car park mural at Brisbane’s Conrad Treasury Casino. I made a private collection of banner murals, one of which is still for sale, see humpbacks image.
They’re great for restaurants to create an illusion of a view. Cars, bikes, surfboards, nothing is safe from my airbrush. Drab old public buildings or drab old car parks can become a visual asset.
From a background in Sign-Writing, large scale and difficult access is not a problem. I can supervise a whole team to make sure that difficult projects meets the crucial deadline.
These are mostly a private collection, based on different themes which appealed to me at the time.
The Hype Art series was a particular passion for me at the time from an obsessive love of Dadaism and Surrealism.
At the time I was honing my skills with the airbrush and I thought it made sense to try something difficult like this techno genre.
The other genre is a mystical/ tribal theme which I still would like to expand on.
These paintings are based on mental images that have occurred to me in more meditative states, for which I have had the good sense to have a pen handy to sketch or write them down to put on the "bucket list".
Landmarks and Milestones in people’s lives are a good reason to capture that moment in a person’s life.
Formats can range from a simple charcoal A4 head & shoulders, to a large scale colour oil painting and can feature backgrounds about that special person.
Shipping is a special advantage of commissioning any artwork in that it is usually lightweight and easily shipped worldwide.
Genres can also vary to your preferences, such as realism, impressionist or abstract.
If you need an artistic feel to some signage, I can accommodate certain requests, particularly when it comes to traditional lettering.
Restaurant chalkboard menus are ever in demand and I can usually quote within 24 hours if you have a reasonably accurate list of the content.
I can work on site or custom construct the chalkboard from my workshop, deliver and install.
Traditional calligraphy is also a specialty if you need an individual, human touch to, say, wedding invitations, or historic photographs on display in your local club or hotel.
TShirt commissions began in 1984 with Golden Breed, a long established surf/ youth culture clothing label. This catalogue of prints range from 1987 to present day and span across five categories, from up market to habitat, to name a few.
Commercial Designs involving any sort of Cartoon is a specialty, particularly designing your business mascot.
Of particular highlights are the Noosa Region habitat in the style of early newspaper lithographs.
Sunshine Coast native vegetation is particularly suitable for this style of Line Art, with it's rough textures.
