Australia has this remarkable ability to harvest some of the world’s most talented writers/crews out there. With what seems to be a perfect combination of transit, concrete, and talent, these guys are constantly dropping original work or pushing the envelope on what can be accomplished with a can. I was lucky enough to have the participation from SKARY, whose work i become hooked on after seeing his Simpsons references adjoining his pieces.
