Darren began drawing at age three. Whilst in grade one, his curious mother decided to enter one of his works in a Melbourne art competition held by 3AW. Invited to 3AW to collect his prize was greeted by a number of people including the runner up and winner of the competition. Somewhat shy, Darren was called to collect his prize walking up to the podium spotlight firmly fixed on him the attention somewhat overwhelming. Greeted by the presenter, Darren shook hands collected his prize and returned to his mother. Walking off stage, Darren began to cry racing to his mother’s arms. His mother clarifying asks Darren “why are you crying” Darren remarked loudly, I wanted a toy! As you could imaging the entire crowd erupted into a fit of laughter. As they say the rest is history, to this day Darren works incredibly hard in delivering world class imagery for his clients.
