Burger joint murals

Recently I was commissioned to create four black and white comicbook murals for a new chain of healthy burger joints here in Australia. The guys from Grill'd gave me four titles (Living Proof, Writing on the Wall, The Invisible is Real and Hand Made) which I had to interpret into art how I saw fit. They were pretty open to interpretation so you'll notice I've also included all the ideas I roughed out to get to the final four.

My work for Grill'd was recently mentioned in these articles-

These look great Chris - I pop into Grill'd for lunch now and then, so I'll have to keep an eye out - are they going up in all the franchises?

Thanks everyone! Always good to hear from you all.

retromancy- The photo on the blog is from their Melbourne store, and they also have my art up in the Darling Harbour, Sydney store as well. There's a bunch of other Sydney stores and I assume they're there as well, but I haven't visited them.

These illustrations make me question whether I’m smart enough to eat at this place!
