Inspired to draw as a child by comic book superhero artwork, Brett’s first published work was at age 12 in Larry Pickering’s book CARTOONS BY AUSTRALIAN KIDS, and has since produced an extensive variety of cartoon and illustration work for children’s books, TV show merchandise, magazines, newspapers, websites, corporate promotions, caricature commissions and has had successful solo exhibitions showcasing his “bright, bold and sexy cartoon style”.
