His illustrations have been commissioned by clients such as The New York Times, Sydney Opera House, Penguin Random House, Warner Music and The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. His work has been shown internationally and has been awarded by the Society of Illustrators NY, Communication Arts and the Illustrarte Biennial.
