New Website

I have a brand new website you can find here

New book

Heres art from my second book this year coming out in September for Māori language week. Check out the Book here. It's the first book I've done that's bilingual with two translations on the one page. Māori and English. Was a pretty challenging book to work on with lots of back and forth with editors but I think it came out pretty cool.

Style jumping

Style changes over the last few months.

Taonga web-series

For the last few months I've been working on an animation about a young Māori girl named Māia who finds an ancient flute in the forest and has a big adventure because of it. The working title is 'Taonga'. 

New app/book illustrations

I worked on a cross cultural collaboration between Maori and Haida Nation in Canada. I had to make up a story that could show the mythical creatures of both cultures. 

 Haida culture concepts

 Boy concepts

Lots of challenges making this but it was an awesome experience. I came up with a detailed synopsis over about 4 days. Then someone else took my synopsis and created the text layout for the comic based almost word for word on my synopsis. I then illustrated the book and it was then shown to other story advisors who changed certain things such as the names of creatures ie Sasquatch became Grizzly Bear and The Great Lynx was changed to Sea Wolf. Basically my story went through many different hands and ended up pretty different in the end. 

We also created an app version with games and multiple languages which you can download free on iPad or iPhone here.
