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.
Make Tinytown come alive! We have just made a craft collection of diy craft kit. 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.
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.
A classic collection of timeless illustrations for the nursery or kids room interior. The Collection consists of happy and friendly illustrations: Meet the friendly Mr Moon, Miss Sunshine and Shining Star in a series of three prints. Available in the shop.
What started as a carefully illustrated observation of the seaside location in Sydney has quickly become a classic design. An illustrated snapshot of the seaside suburb of Manly, Northern Beaches Australia. During the 19th and early 20th century Manly was one of Australia’s most popular seaside holiday resorts. This illustration was also the first one in the Super Places Collection and it is very special as this is where Supertrooper Studio started.
The illustration includes interpretations of The Corso, ferry, penguins, surfer, coffee shops, sea food and Manly Wharf.
The illustration are available printed as wall prints, cushion covers and tea towels in our online store or at our stocksist.
This addition to the Super Places Collection is the Melbourne illustration with a timeless classic feel. Inspired by the lane ways and art life, bikes, trams, secret lane ways, rooftop cinemas and events it evokes memories a la the Melbourne experience.
Represented in the illustration is all the beautiful food experiences had in the city, the Royal Exhibition building, China Town, MCG, the rowing boats of the Yarra, the iconic Melbourne trams, Flinders Street station and what Melbourne always did very well; roof top out door cinema.
The illustration is available as a wall print, tea towel and cushion cover. They are all available in our online shop or at our stockists.
The Sydney illustration has a timeless classic feel. It is inspired by the harbor glamor and time spent catching the Sydney Ferries enjoying the beautiful glittering water with the contrasting skyline.
The illustration features classic city landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to New Year fireworks, city skyline, The Rocks heritage area, Museum of Contemporary Art, Hyde Park and the obligatory fruit bats and sharks of the harbour.
The Sydney illustration was one of the first I made and it is also one of the most complicated to screen print technically as the field of opaque harbour blue is quite large.
The illustration is available as an art print, tea towel and cushion cover in our online store or at our stockists.
Strandhill is located in the beautiful West Coast of Ireland, facing the open wild Atlantic and backed by the Mountain Knocknarea. The mountain is said to host Queen Maeves’s Tomb, and Knocknarea seems to have been a major place of ritual and meeting in the Neolithic era. Today Strandhill is a very friendly place, a small place with a big heart. It also hosts some of the most amazing surf brakes in the West Coast of Ireland, only crowded by seals and the occasional dolphin.
There’s a great friendly local community cultivating land and relationships planting seeds for the future of Strandhill.
The Strandhill illustration is inspired by stories from growing up on the mountain, playing among the ivy clad walls and hiding in the green lush Glen. A very special place for us.
The print is available in our online store or at Shells Cafe, Strandhill, Ireland.
New York, New York! It has been a challenge interpreting this bustling busy city that never sleeps and going through constant change.
I was only young when visiting New York the first time with my parents on holidays. I remember arriving at the airport thinking I had never seen anything so big before. Driving in to the city we saw the skyline of iconic buildings. The city left a lasting impression and when studying graphic design I had the chance to go back exploring the nooks and crannies of Manhattan. I remember just walking turning a corner where I felt there was something worth discovering. Endless photography of details, signage, fire stairs and architectural detailing.
The illustrations takes you for a walk on the High Line, look at Empire State Building, Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge, city lights, cabs, Central Park, Statue of Liberty and hot dog stands. Stroll through East Village and go see a musical on Broadway. Walk past flatiron building and pay a visit to China town. Needless to say – we love New York.
The illustration is available as and art print, tea towel or cushion cover in our online store.
London calling! Jump on the bus! The London cityscape illustration is a recent addition to the Super Places Collection. With so much to offer and with something for everyone (even jellied eel-pie lovers!) a lot of time was spent carefully illustrating the essence of the vibrant city. The illustration is inspired by time spent with very good friends in London, and observations of details in the ever changing but classic city. The London Eye, London Tower, The Shard, Big Ben, Westminster, the locals, the guards, the scones all made it in there.

Hot air balloons, ferris wheel and tulips reminds of the festive spirit of the annual Floriade combined with more formal architectural elements such as the Australian Parliament overlooking Lake Burley Griffin.
