Life Goat, pencil, A3

Happy New Year from the Life Goat! And many thanks to everyone who has supported my publications, ramblings and exhibitions throughout 2016, commented via this blog, offered advice or just borrowed a book. Wishing you all the right balance of inspiration, doubt and perserverence for 2017: let's all step into the fray with a rational heart, listening with our eyes and fighting every shadow with a well-sharpened pencil.


  1. Thanks Shaun. All the best to you for 2017. Thank you for all your beautiful work.

  2. thanks a lot,happy new year!!!! ew

  3. Hi Shaun,

    My name is Chris and I’m from the Australian Childhood Foundation. We are a not for profit National Children’s Charity based in Melbourne who work with and for children who have experienced abuse related trauma, including those effected by family violence.

    Shaun, we are contacting you because we need to find an artist who could create one image (a house) for us to use as a basis for a game we have conceptualised that will provide a way for kids to give Organisations who work with children, feedback about how to best meet their needs. Presently nothing like this exists in the world (that we can find) and Organisations need to do a better job in terms of listening and responding to children. We love your work and use your books a lot with children in therapy sessions (especially The Red Tree).

    We understand that you are busy and not seeking commissions, however thought we’d give it a shot anyway.

    We hope to hear from you:

    Here are my Manager’s contact details- Angela Weller- Ph. 0407 946 825.

    Kind Regards, Chris Cussen

  4. Thanks Chris, I'll get in touch with Angela and see what I can do for you.

  5. Thank you for daily views of pigment and line that touch our emotions. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  6. I'm happy to encounter your blog.
    Your work is very inspiring!
    Happy new year!

  7. 您好!
    Happy everyday!

  8. Love this Shaun! This would be the perfect style for my (work in progress) book 'The Cloud', metaphor for the benefits and dangers of the Internet. Looking for new projects?
