Once day a man and his wife discovered a beautiful machine on a bench that looked like a set of sunglasses. On its inside were engraved the words ‘Tell me what would you want’. The sunglasses responded to requests by displaying a time, precise location and word to say.
What they had discovered was a mysterious device that calculated the first cause to a chain-reaction of fantastically unlikely events.
Following the machine’s instructions, the couple spoke a request then make their way to a busy intersection and at the nominated time said the word.
Out of sight, a passerby heard the word, was cast back to a cherished memory, stumbled into an oncoming stranger who in trying to regain his balance caused pizza to propel from its owner’s hand onto the feet of the couple.
They were awestruck.
The next day they requested grander things. It set off a tapestry of delicately connected events. Within days they had a beautiful car. Then jewellery. Then a house. And through extraordinary luck (or so others believed) they won a fortune.
But soon riches grew unsatisfying and the couple’s appetite turned to long faded childhood dreams.
In a short time, the fantastically improbable became certain.
He gained fame as history’s unlikeliest sporting champion, renowned for audacious feats and an unsurpassable winning streak.
She made yodeling popular with young people everywhere.
Together they grew immensely wealthy and revered. But having unlocked the key to unlikely certainty and all they’d ever wished for, a stale mist settled on their lives.
The couple lamented their empty and certain success along with the machine that had given all they wanted. So, with a final request they told the machine to help them forget they had ever found it.
Now having no knowledge of the cause of their amazing triumphs, the couple basked in the glory of their remarkable achievements.
And out of sight, the glasses dropped, soon to be found by a young boy as they had been done to a thousand people before and a thousand to come.
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

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!
