Final BEACH CLUB!! update

After Much messing about and forgetting what I started this blog for, here is the last of the BEACH CLUB!! show that Sean Morris and I had back in December. It was a controversial exhibition that culminated in the artwork being banned from the Little Creatures Brewery for inappropriate content, and then being re-exhibited at Spectrum Project Space a few weeks later.

"Mighty Aphrodite"
Features the lyrics to "Bossy" by Kelis in the banners.

"Scared White Boy In A Black Neighbourhood"
Features the lyrics to Everclear's song by the same name.

There you have it, the final update for BEACH CLUB!!... most likely. I am thinking about putting up a coupe of detail shots because the works here are about A2 size and pretty detailed, but it will clutter up the page and waste everybody's time. I have two more about this size that never even got finished in time for the show, and that I'm not really that fond of. perhaps one day I'll finish the other two off and push them as some sort of long-lost artwork bonanza... "see the work that time forgot".

Riding With Wolves...


Pigeon Hole at 7A Shafto Lane, Perth, is launching a sweet range of wolf sculptures and imported bikes tomorrow night with a mini-exhibition or PARTY at the store. The shindig kicks off at 6pm and will showcase the new merchandise and 5 original works by local artists Sean Morris, Kate-Anna Williams, Jess Horrocks, Jessie Mitchell and myself.

The artwork is on medium sized squares of pine and are for sale while on display at Pigeon Hole, but if you miss out or just plain can't afford it there will be postcard sized prints of the works for bugger all. So forget the usual boring wednesday nights, most often fraught with disappointment and drama, and kick it off this time with free drinks and expensive toys at Riding With Wolves.

Pigeon Hole Preview

So today I got busy with this mini-exhibition that a local store is having to promote some new merchandise.
Pigeon Hole is on Shafto Lane in Perth and sell loads of cool everything... it's hard to describe. The handful of artists selected were given squares of nice, thick pine of the same size to create something incorporating the themes of wolves and/or bicycles. I was pleased to get the basic pencil work out of the way for my piece today... drawing bikes has always pissed me off.

This is just a taste. The whole image sits nice in the middle of the pine and includes the full lowrider bike... thinking of slipping in some Bushwick Bill lyrics somewhere.

So I still haven't got this thing totally up to date yet due to uni, commissions & exhibitions being in the way. Also I'm just a really lazy guy at the moment who can never start work until the late afternoon. I have been designing stuff for one of my units regarding a fictitious collective for local artists called ITCH. If everything turns out to look pretty sweet I might think about making it a reality... maybe. Anyway for part of the stationery set I drew this which I think looks pretty alright.

It's not much but I'm still thinking about you, my precious blog.
