In 2020, Reg was invited to produce an artwork for the graduating HSC class, in recognition of their resilience and strength during the year. His artwork "Onwards and Upwards" was what he came up with, a nod to his hope that students will harness the strengths they uncovered this year and carry them into the future.
"I thought this would be an optimistic image. Students might also be open to an Australian animal superhero – especially an animal itself that has gone through difficult times this year with drought and bushfire"
All HSC students received a copy of Onwards and upwards with their HSC credentials, and one lucky student was presented with the original artwork at a ceremony celebrating students who achieved the top result in an HSC course.
