Stray Cash was my first project, and when it launched, it sparked a massive debate about Australian identity and was widely liked and shared across all forms of media, and quickly went viral.
The new Australian $5 note is dropping this week, so I thought it was only fair that I’d give the new design the Straya Cash treatment.
You might recall the 'cringe tidal wave' the new design was met with a few month back. It left many scratching their heads at the bizarre blue window and questioning why the new note had E. coli bacteria plastered all over its design (eventually it was agreed that it was wattle).
Because sometimes it's not worth breaking a note just to buy a dimmy.

A photographer mate of mine Garth Oriander has started a website called What Makes Them Tick. He profiling different creative people, asking them about what they do.

I was on facebook the other week and an old friend had uploaded a picture of herself as a realistic digital character, shot from every angle. After enquiring, she put me in contact with David Watts from Tokyo, the guy behind an interesting process that scans your entire body and converts it into a 3D model.
