“Brendon has worked on a number of complex and demanding jobs for me. I use him because he delivers excellent work, on time and to the brief. I have no hesitation in recommending Brendon.”Roger Dennisconsultant: innovation | foresight | transformationwww.rogerdennis.com
"Brendon has been doing illustrations and posters for my books and my work in schools for over 10 years now. His posters, charts and illustrations have really appealed to the children (and teachers) I work with. They love the bright colours and variety of interesting characters that he has created. The posters are eye catching and very clearly portray the information to be shared."
“Love your work and thanks for just being an out of sightly amazing artist!”Chris MeneDirector, Mene Solutions Ltd | Director, Canterbury District Health Board | Chairperson, CDHB Disability Support Advisory Committee | Chairperson, Core Education Ltd | Trustee, Sport Canterbury | Trustee, Wayne Francis Charitable Trust | Board Member, Inspiring Communities | Chief Fat Boy, Fat Boys Club
“Brendon is fabulously creative and easy to work with, his illustrations brought the characters of my children's storybook to life. My youngest (now three) asks for Ovkors the horse every night.”
“THANK YOU so much for all your work on the latest ARP poster. We love it!! I think I even love it more than the first one which I didn’t think was possible.We’re doing a massive print run of posters for schools, and it will also appear in the Future Christchurch Update for November. ....has been a pleasure working with you.”Jane Mahoney Senior Advisor MarketingCanterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA)

The NZ Inland Revenue have recently expanded the job titles for folks in the creative professions.
I’m a little bit pleased to report that this year I’ll be paying tax as a cartoonist instead of as a commercial artist!
We asked ’em a year or two back about this and it’s come to pass. Official and all.
Last year the Yellow pages did the same, I can’t recall If I vied for Illustrator or cartoonist, but again, it was because we (and hopefully others) asked for it.
My son is a prop-builder and model maker, at this stage he has to be satisfied with “sculptor” and “builder” but there’s time.
Changing stuff at a governmental level takes time (long, long time if it’s something important) and you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes… They DO hear ya.
