This is what you look like inside. You may not realise it but living in you is either an amazing little toy robot or a magical music box.
It's been there since you were a child but you probably forgot about it.
Today might change your world because what I'm about to tell you will give you a chance to make it move again (and funnily enough it's three tennis balls that helped me remember mine). My hope is that what I tell you will make this Christmas your most astonishingly great ever.
Three months ago In a small parking lot an old man selling paraphernalia approached me offering his goods. I instinctively waved him away only to be persuaded by my wife’s urgings to purchase three tennis balls - one for each of our little children. As I drove away a strange feeling stirred in me.
You see, somewhere between my compassionate boyhood and my thirties I entered an autopilot mode whenever someone asked me for money which was “no”.
But on this occasion as I shared the tennis balls with my excited children something happened.
It's like a little childhood toy robot started moving again inside me.
These inspired many of my artworks and in particular three which you might think of as my simple instructions to make your little robot or music box to come alive again (because here's a secret: art isn't a picture but rather an arrow to pierce hearts).
I’m hoping this Christmas will be Australia’s and your most astonishing by giving a little only to find you’re the one that got. You see, that little toy robot or music box you vaguely remember inside you is powered by a tiny amount of kindness.
For that reason I’m offering a personally signed A3 print of this artwork for free to the first twenty people who contact me in the hope it will help you to turn your robot or music box on.
(You can also give one as a special gift for Christmas if you'd like to sprinkle the magic here)
I’d love to hear what happens…
Purchase your very own original print of how to find your own inner robot or music box.

These are the most common questions asked of Oscar.
● Why are your products so special?
Many products (including wall art and t-shirts) are made by combining stock art (you know, images you can buy on used on bad advertisements) to make pretty patterns that don't mean a lot.
Oscar’s works are original and interesting - all designed and crafted using his own hands onto real paper with his imagination, real pencils and ink. That’s what makes each piece like nothing else in the world.
● What are the prints made of? Why are they such quality?
Each piece is printed onto the finest museum grade paper. Oscar chooses the Hahnemuhle brand because it feels and looks superb (if you’re interested it’s acid free and calcium carbonate buffered) plus it can last longer than 100 years!
The inking process is called giclée printing and is a high-quality way of getting ink onto the best paper.
● Which size is right for me? A few helpful things to consider:
A4 is small and good for a small desk, kitchen or small wall like a corner.
A3 is medium and good for a larger desk, larger kitchen or moderate sized wall.
A2 a larger and really nice on a wall, behind a bed or desk, adorning a hallway or thoroughfare.
A1 a very large and a wonderful way to make an impact in a room, office, reception, thoroughfare or atrium. Pow.
A4 210 x 297 mm | 8.3 x 11.7 in
A3 297 x 420 mm | 11.7 x 16.5 in
A2 420 x 594 mm | 16.5 x 23.4 in
A1 594 x 841 mm | 23.4 x 33.1 in
● Do you offer free worldwide shipping?
Oscar offers free shipping to anywhere in the world. The farthest flung so far is the Netherlands, United States and England but he’d love to go even further! (perhaps you’re from Nepal or Antarctica maybe?)
● How can Oscar offer free shipping?
Well, Oscar loves free shipping and it’s worth what it costs him for radically happy customers!
● Can I return and get a refund if I’m not 100% happy?
Yes! Of course. Oscar wants you to be radically happy and satisfied (that’s good business isn’t it? But also good humanness...). We’re convinced you will be! But if for whatever reason you’re not super happy please contact us and we’ll arrange a full refund as soon as humanly possible.
● Oscar is Award-Winning?
Yes. He’s entered and won art prizes including for a piece about a magical bus and its passengers and a 22 page piece Moleskin about a boy who woke up with a strange knowing one day. He was also featured in prominent publications for his work and journey to one of the world’s largest portrait prizes, The Archibald Prize.
But now he prefers to imagine and make to change the world.
● What is Oscar’s life Mission?
Oscar mission is to change the world with a pencil, pens and beautiful paper so that his imaginative tales and creations can be found in rooms, offices, buses and wall facades in town and cities large and small - so people awe at the ordinary.
A billion people on earth would be nice :) A beloved collection of children’s books too (that Roald Dahl would be proud of). Oh, and a film trilogy...
But I’d love to start (if you don’t mind) with you today!
