This is an illustration for Melbourne Child magazine. The article is about how parenting advice changes over the years and the idea comes from the following passage in the article
"In the 1970s we knew just how wonderful sheepskins were. Air circulated between the fibres; there was no suffocation risk. Sleeping on the stomach was healthier and more natural. Any mother who positioned their defenceless baby on its back was just asking for trouble.Why would you expose your little one to the risk of aspirating vomit?The linework is black faber castell pencil on detail paper. It gives a nice soft rough line. The scans were assembled in Photoshop with each element on a separate layer. Colour was added using adjustments layers and masks. More information on this technique can be found here-
I wouldn’t dare utter the word ‘sheepskin’ out loud now, and as for placing a baby on its stomach, that would be tantamount to placing it in the middle of a freeway. On the back is back…and that’s that!"

This is final painting of the silver haired girl. Check out the colour rough here. I have made her gun smaller and adjusted her mouth to the left a bit.The paint was applied quite thickly since i wanted the brush marks to be visible.Will be coating with a nice thick gloss varnish which should unify the colours a bit more.
The title is "The Betrayal".
Acrylics on canvas. approx size 20cm x 25cm.

The Nintendo "Out of Controller" opened on Wednesday night (exhibition runs from 10 - 27 Sept)) at the FAD gallery in Chinatown. My entry "Pauline and Donkey Kong" won the second prize. Here are a couple of pics from the opening night.
