Emerald Aquatic Centre

The Emerald Aquatic Centre was the first gig Sauce had waiting for him in Emerald, and he was there for six days completing the cartoon murals for the children’s area. Sauce met the manager of the centre on his previous trip to Central Queensland, as the manager was looking for something to smarten the place up before the busy summer season. 

The manager was so impressed with the children’s area, he commissioned Sauce to paint an entrance mural too. 



The Dragon and the Buddha

This smiling Buddah was for a heavy metal dude in suburban Brisbane. I received a call while Sauce was on his previous tour of Central QLD, for an enquiry about a mural with the aurora borealis, a Chinese Buddah and a dragon. It sounded great, but we needed to be patient, as Sauce only had a few weeks in-between his next trip away. 

The family who commissioned this mural were great to work with. Not only were they patient, they entertained Sauce with great rotation of heavy metal while being a pleasure to work with. The design elements were easy, since they had a clear idea about what they wanted, but they also let Sauce take some artistic licence where necessary. 
Apparently, the family were so happy with the outcome, they were arguing amongst themselves as to whose idea it was to get Sauce to the mural! We think it looks pretty rad as Buddah is always an effective image to work with. 

Birkdale Breakers

Last week I returned to Birkdale and worked with the great team at Birkdale Breakers Swim Club. The breif was to enliven the pool complex ahead of sign on and the upcoming swimming season. I designed the artwork to appeal to the popular learn to swim program and incorporated a beach theme as suggested by the club. Once again I enjoyed working at Birkdale and wish to thank the staff, students and pool committee for the fantastic feedback.
