A Sixty year maze

Client: N/A

Title: A Sixty year maze – Cartoon

This illustration began in 2014 after an unscheduled stop in Bundaberg, North Queensland. We spent this particular afternoon meandering the botanical gardens before entering the Japanese garden. The miniature and trim landscapes they have on display there are amazing, the zen experience and the imagery became the starting point for this illustration. Two years on and the world around it has just been completed and the characters have all grown outwards from that moment. The finished piece was to be a gift for my father, Brian, a gesture to commemorate him turning 60 in November of 2015. My father passed away in September 2015. At the time I had the uncompleted piece printed for the rest of the family to see, in June 2016 I finally came to finish the illustration, a tribute to my Dad.

This piece has been accepted into the ‘Imaginary Worlds‘ exhibition at the Oriel Davies gallery and will be on display between October 2016 till February 2017 .
