Relative Apparel Launch Tonight.

Tonight I'll be doing live art at the Manor in Leederville for the Relative Apparel Launch. Doors open at 8pm, $8, the event is to launch a range of shirts with designs by local designers, I did one with some monkeys on it.

I'll be painting on the same board with Abdul Abdullah, and alongside us will be local talent including Creepy, Daek One and some others. I would link to these guys but I'm pretty sure I've done that in previous posts like a million times.

Come check us out, there will be naked women, snakes, pandas and monkeys.

Clutch-pencil Love

So i got a clutch-pencil on the advice of my buddy Abdul, and it's my new favourite toy. I drew this in class today and think I want to base a live-art piece on it for the Relative Apparel Launch on May 15th, 8pm @ The Manor in Leederville. Alongside on the night will be Daek, Creepy, Abdul and Drew from Keith & Lottie. I Don't want to say too much about the night, but it is the premiere of a small range of t-shirts with designs by local artists and produced by Relative Magazine, one of which features something by yours truly. Pics will go up after the launch.

Post-Riding With Wolves

As some of you may already be aware through STM or Dropstitch, the Riding With Wolves show was launched at Pigeon Hole in Shafto Lane the other week to much praise and many a raised plastic cup of champagne. The other artists involved, including Sean Morris, Kate-Anna Williams, Jess Horrocks & Jessie Mitchell, all produced some outstanding work for the night and I was happy to see a few purchases on opening night. The crowd were, for the most part, lovely and a good night was had by all. The end.

Acrylic and pen on pine.

Oh yepper, before I leave you this is the piece I created for the show, with the toned-down hand gesture and different choice of lyrics than originally intended. Hope you dig it, I do.
