I was flicking through Desktop (my fav design rag) recently when I came across an illustrator with a fondness for all thing Australian. A Melbourne artist, Eamo (cant find his surname anywhere!) has a uniquely quintessential Australian flavour, think Ugg boats, fluoro zinc, flashback to 1980 Oz… (you get the picture!) His work has a quirky sense of humour and a uniqueness that really appealed. I love his referral to nostalgia, icons and imagery of an Australia past.  Who would of thought that Paul Hogan would one day be my creative inspiration…

A good website to view more of his design and illustration is http://www.designfederation.net/general/eamo/
