New illustrated Newcastle wall print with the iconic landmarks from Fort Scratchley to the Bogey Hole.

Newcastle illustrated print
Newcastle, NSW, Australia illustrated print by Supertrooper Studio.

The Newcastle illustration features the possibly oldest swimming pool on the east coast of Australia – The Bogey hole – said to derive from the Dharawal name for “to bathe”. Hidden away under an old shopping arcade the original baths can be found. The  illustration is also featuring Nobbys beach and Nobbys Lighthouse, Shipwreck Walk in Stockton, Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Art Gallery, Christ Church Cathedral, The Obelisk, King Edward Park, Darby Street, Fort Scratchley, Convict Lumber Yard and the Art Deco  Ocean Baths.

And if you look closely you might find the kangaroo hiding away in the ground said to thump it’s tail so the land is trembling. The print is available in our online store here.

This winter I went back to Stockholm and spent time sketching and researching. It is the city where I grew up, went to school and climbed over the backyard fences in the island of Sodermalm together with my friends.

The Stockholm illustration features Sodermalm, Mosebacke, Gamla Stan, Sergelstorg and the Hotorgsskaporna and Stadshuset where the Nobel dinner is being held to name a few places. Included in the illustration is also the old houses on Sodermalm and the Mosebacke quarters (where I’ve had so many lattes with friends), the Katarina Hissen (elevator), and the Sergelskraporna, Stureplan, Kungstradgarden, and the Royal Dramatic Theatre – Dramaten. They are now available through the online store.SPSTOCC Supertrooperstudio Stockholm CushionCover 1000x1000

Meet the different colourful characters of Tinytown and turn them into cute softies. Each DIY craft pack includes two pieces of fabric; one side which is printed with the illustration on a linen/cotton blend and one side of backing material in soft white cotton. And we do have free shipping within Australia. You’ll find the craft packs in our shop.

 

After the design of the Superplaces Collection, clients and customers asked “can you please do design for our children too” – and so, Tinytown diy craft kit collection was born.

 

This week in the Studio

This week we’ve been preparing for Finders Keepers Market in Sydney and Canberra Handmade Market. With an array of new ideas popping up on the drawing table we are working long hours here in the Studio to make them happen.

One of my favorite things to illustrate is projects for children as I get to use all the colours in the toolbox.

One of the first items I made when working in the Supertrooper Studio (before it was even had a name of sorts) was the Happy Alphabet ABC-poster. People we met along the way all told us how much they loved the illustrations, and if you’ve met us or have our card you might have noticed that all our business cards use the ABC-illustrations. As a rule of thumb we run out of these at every event as everyone is looking for their letter 🙂

My personal favorite is the Sun illustration. In fact I liked it so much that you’ll find different versions of the Sun in the Super Places Series as well.

And now, here we are trying to get a small run of pennants for the new Beautiful Day Collection finished. As you might have guessed – there’s a happy Sun in there too.

Bits and grids

This weekend I started a rather large painting based on the landscape grid used by the Super places series. It’s fair to say I probably have sketched a mile today before packing up.

As you might know I have an interest in information graphics, grids and systems of various kinds. Here’s a sneakypeak.

Have a nice weekend, and Thank You for this week.
