While in his first year at the school, he was offered his first book illustration commission. When he eventually returned to Australia, he worked as an artist in the newspaper industry. He also wrote articles, book and art reviews and designed theatre sets and costumes.

His illustration style is characterised by spontaneity and wit, and he has illustrated many books written by other people.
