I spoke with my colleague Luke Watson at this year's UX Australia conference. We talked about what happens when you release cartoonists into a large company! You can check out the slides, and here's the audio:

Who Me


I'm a service designer and cartoonist in Melbourne, Australia. You'll find my comics work in Daily Review, Guardian Australia, The Nib, Australian MAD Magazine, Crikey, Junkee and SBS Comedy.


I'm also a founder of Australia's funnest open cartoonists' workspace, Squishface Studio.


I currently work in the field of strategic/service design. It generally involves making use of human-centred design techniques to help people create better services, organisational strategy and communications. I make sure it also involves lots of drawing, and when I'm doing that I call it experience illustration.



Books and Comics


#takedown is a comic book about when professional pickup artist Julien Blanc came to town (and left real quickly). It's available from Books Kinokuniya in Sydney and All Star Comics and Dymocks Collins St in Melbourne. You can read #takedown online here, and buy a paper copy too. Review at Saturday Paper. Review at Aus Comics Journal.


Some of my comics are on my blog. My little brother Tristian's well-received columns are at the Daily Review. My pieces for The Nib, like The World's Most Trolled Cartoonist, are here.


Other comics are out of print, but you can read, download and torrent them at!





Adam Wajnberg and I do a comedy business podcast called Pitchface!


If you ever wanted to hear pitches for new episodes of The Golden Girls, new Cleveland-themed sandwich stores or which action stars should play our penises in a movie, subscribe to it on iTunes or go check out episodes and show notes at the website.





If you want to hire me, check out my portfolio. I'm very busy but sometimes available for graphic scribing jobs, especially if you work in a weird industry I want to understand better!


If you're interested in Squishface Studio, check out our website and follow our Facebook page.





You can e-mail me here or follow me on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
