Eamo Donnelly is an Australian based illustrator who is best known for his intricately hand inked, character driven illustrations, infused with an eclectically dynamic color palette with a true blue Aussie cheekiness. Eamo has illustrated for PLAYBOY, VH1, CBS Interactive, Chow.com, Maxim, Nike, Mountain Dew, ESPN, Complex, GQ, Men's Health, Runners World, Blender, King magazine, Redbull, Radar magazine, RipCurl, Monument, Jmag and Golden Plains.

As well as commercial commissions, his love affair for Australian eighties nostalgia prompted him to create personal works that reflected the beauty and uniqueness of the culture he grew up in. These works have been seen on Jeeps for Mountain Dew, wallets for Poketo in L.A, shoes for String Republic in France, t-shirts for Owl Movement, esky's, stubby holders, clocks, bar walls and street posters and in exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney and in the U.S and the U.K. In 2009 he was short listed for best original illustration in the Australian Desktop Create Awards and in 2010 he will be a speaker at Melbourne's Design Conference AGIdeas. He is also an occasional Australiana reviewer for Melbourne's online sub cultural guide ThreeThousand.

Your personal hero? Paul Hogan. YouTube the Paul Hogan Show from the ’70s and you’ll see why. His later works are still up there, but nothing beats his early oils on canvas from the 1976 period, such as “Leo Wanker”, “Donger”, “Getting fit with Arthur Dunger” and “Herb Guthrey, Mongrel breeder”. - Eamo,Design Reporter

“Working across many areas has enhanced my career but that was never the intention,” he says. “My intention is always to try new things, to learn and to make work that I like. I suppose by making more work you become more visible, which leads to more contacts and more commissions.” - Interview for Computer Arts
