Colour-fast ink on recycled felt in 3 sizes.
Limited edition of 50 prints, 2019. Ships in a box.

In 1961 the Australian government launched a national campaign called Operation Boomerang, featuring a cool boomerang logo that Aussie manufacturing companies could use to show that their goods were made in Australia. Unfortunately in 1986, they had Melbourne graphic designer Ken Cato design an ugly green and gold update showing a kangaroo stuck in a triangle.

A series of 200 felt prints I created during 2019 & 2020.
Every work is hand-printed in Sydney on recycled acoustic felt.
I sign, title, number, date, and frame every print myself.
Not only is felt warm and fuzzy, it improves a room’s acoustics.

All Going Viral prints come in the frame colour shown.*
Only 70 × 50 and 50 x 50 cm prints are available unframed or framed.
10 × 15, 21 × 30 and 23 x 23 cm frames include a stand and hanging hook.
L-pins or a hanging brace are the easiest way to hang unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. A frame is better if your wall is brick or concrete.
None of my frames include glass because felt looks better naked. 
I can provide clear acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $30 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
*Unless otherwise specified.


Ships in a box. Sydney art lovers can avoid shipping costs by collecting work and paying cash at my studio in Darlinghurst. Otherwise shipping is calculated at check-out. Each print is hand-made so please allow 2-4 weeks for domestic delivery and 3-5 weeks for international. Let me know if you need a piece urgently as I may have one already printed.


I’m happy to quote on custom felt prints featuring your choice of subject matter in any size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance living or work spaces.
