Melbourne-based illustrator Rik Lee wrote in to let us know he has stayed busy and updated his blog with new work. I am digging the integration of illustration and simple typography in the piece above. That is a lot of drawing.

The oh-so-so-young Aussie rockers who call themselves Powerage have asked for a little help. If you recall, I posted a video of them performing at the Hinton County Fair not long ago. The boys are currently running in a national school band competition called My School Act that is exclusive to Australian high school students. The winning act will receive a Sony Music recording deal worth $50,000 to help them get their start in the industry.

In order to vote for them:

  • go to the link www.myschoolact.com
  • register as a fan ( and you will immediately be sent a password to your email address)
  • re-enter www.myschoolact.com with your password
  • Become a fan of Powerage

I wouldn’t normally post something like this but these fellas are very young and really going for it. The front man was only around 11 years old when he started getting people’s attention. I think they have some genuine talent and could really go somewhere if the right people get behind them and I am all for helping out up and coming talent in any way possible. If you don’t like them, then don’t vote but if you do, this could mean a lot to them. Good luck boys.

Since I last posted them way back in February, A Friend of Mine has updated with some red hot branding/stationary work. The detail on the business card above is just gorgeous. I am currently getting some cards printed for Changethethought and was really inspired by their work.

Rik Lee sent his work in this morning and there is some really nice stylistic illustration work happening in his portfolio.

Here is the word from his about section:
“Rik Lee lives and draws in Melbourne. He is a founding member of And Collective, which has released four publications. He finds deadlines inspiring. He has worked for Nylon USA, Vibe, Vice Australia, Girlfriend, The Sunday Telegraph, Mooks, Stussy, Lee Jeans, and Oyster magazine. He works with grey lead pencils, textas, watercolours and his computer. He enjoys the radar on the Bureau of Meteorology website. In the future he intends to draw more, travel more, get more tattoos, drive a ‘67 Chevy Impala and move down the coast with his girl and his dog.”

Thank you for the email Rik.
