you must take the time to watch this amazing video of melvin the magical mixed media machine (or just melvin the machine), which is best described as “…a rube goldberg machine with a twist. besides doing what rube goldbergs do best – performing a simple task as inefficiently as possible, often in the form of a chain reaction – melvin has an identity. actually, the only purpose of this machine is promoting its own identity….”
trust me, it will make you smile!

i gave my very 1st guest lecture today on illustration, my own work, and children’s book illsutration at vega‘s durban campus. my lecture was titled a small story of whimsy and was a brief look at how i serendipitously became illustrator and the ‘dancing in the dark’ experiences of setting up my little whimsy brand.
it was actually an interesting personal exercise and forced me to look at the evolution in my drawing styles, methods & techniques…here are some of the slides showing the progression in my work over the past 3 years…and whimsy is only just beginning!
