Suburban Legends

About the project

When the Distillery offered me a chance to produce a limited edition letterpress poster for their upcoming exhibition, Suburban Legends, it was an opportunity no-one could say no to. The brief was simple - choose a suburb that you relate to in or around Sydney, and produce a design that would be sold with proceeds going to Starlight Children’s foundation.

For many people, the Blue Mountains is a place of beauty. Growing up there was one of my greatest privelages, but when thinking back on what I remember most about it, I couldn’t go past summer and its bushfires - a season as threatening as it is carefree. ‘Something from Nothing’ came from the idea of regeneration and an acknowledgement that through destruction comes new life.
