Yanni Floros is an Adelaide based artist that trained at the National Art School in Sydney and graduated as a sculpture major. Perhaps this helps to explain how he can literally sculpt his drawings created with the use of a charcoal pencil generating imagery that truly jumps right off of the page. Prepare yourself for some amazing talent.
George Nova is a young Australian artist and designer with a skilled hand at producing graphite and watercolor illustrations. His imagery is clean, to the point and a helluva a lot of fun to look at.

Australian artist/illustrator Nina Maskiell has created some intricate organic vegitation-inspired black and white renderings that would not be easy to produce. So far there are only a few images in her portfolio but it’s probably not a stretch to say that she is just getting started.
Australian designer Mark Gowing is churning out some clean contemporary design work out of his base in Sydney. He’s keeping things minimal but doing it right.
Dave Foster works at Saatchi Design in Sydney where he helps his clients communicate effectively with their audience by day and draws letters and type. He’s saving his pennies and hopes to one day attend Den Haag in The Netherlands to complete the Masters Degree in Typeface Design at KABK.

I don’t know how long ago Sydney based design agency Toko updated their website and portfolio but it doesn’t really matter. New or not, it’s worth looking into to get a glimpse at some genuinely inspiring design work bridging the gap with design as an artform. There is some sincerely beautiful work in their portfolio, including some excellent typographical work and that’s about all I have to say about that.
Australian graffiti artist Numskull has continued updating his site with more examples of his sarcastic pop culture clash artwork that mixes typography, comic and cartoon imagery we all love and fear. If you are unfamiliar with his work you can read an interview with him at Side Street Sydney that gets into his process and the psychology behind his imagery. You can also purchase posters of his Wooden Toy Publishing and Stupid Krap.
I am a big fan of his work. His use of typography is of particular interest to me but the mixing of ‘pop/comic type’ with comic book and cartoon figures is just brilliant.
I stumbled upon Sydney based Like Minded Studio’s Behance portfolio today and it looks as though there might be a few bits of work there that I didn’t see at their website. Like Minded is headed by the exceptionally talented illustrative typographer Luca Ionescu whose work I have always admired.
Sydney-based artist Rod Luff is responsible for some lovely drawings.
Robbie Powell ecently graduated from Think College Of Design, Sydney, Australia. For having just graduated, he already has some brilliant typographical work in his portfolio.
