Lachlan’s drawings and animated GIFs are put together with cheerful yet limited palettes, pleasing shapes and good humour. Working first with scrawls in a sketchbook then shaping and refining in Illustrator and Photoshop, Lachlan’s timeless 2D work takes inspiration from the colour and overprint of Risograph printing, Grug and Werner Herzog. He also makes comics, objects and music. Lachlan creates art in his Newcastle home studio, and studied printmaking, graphic design and sculpture at the University of Tasmania but dropped out to pursue an interest in making gig posters and ‘awful, inept noise-music’. His clients include The Lifted Brow, Thames & Hudson, Apple, and he has created murals for Jacky Winter Group HQ and Newcastle’s The All Story gallery and bookstore.

I find a project rewarding when…
Everybody involved walks away happy and hopefully expanded.
My favourite kind of space to work in is…
Light-filled, quiet, and close to or inside my home.
A creative area I’d like to explore more is…
Three dimensional work, murals and books.
For me, getting from A to Z looks like…
A labyrinth with many dead-ends, but with a solution that seems totally obvious. once I've found it.
I can’t stop listening to…
Arthur Russell, every day.
My solution to creative block is…
Doodling aimlessly, making coffee, pacing, and Oblique Strategies.
