Street Drugs

Dean illustrated the street drugs feature theme for this months Australian Family Physician. (And welcomed the opportunity to do something with a bit of grit)

The Kinglake Cookbook is a collection of meals for everyday family eating by Chris Owen, chef and owner of some of Melbourne's most popular restaurants, who found himself running the kitchen at the Kinglake relief centre after the devastation of the Black Saturday bushfires. It's also the story of how the simple act of preparing and sharing a meal can help stitch a community back together again.

Deans work throughout the book illustrates the advice, spirit and humour that helped both the people affected by the fires, as well as those pitching in during the months following Black Saturday

The Kinglake Cookbook was released on the 7th of February to coincide with the first anniversary of the fires. All profits from the sale go to The Kinglake CFA
