Bestiolas Exhibition

Bestiolas Exhibition

Oh boyo boy!… am I looking forward to this exhibition!  Bestiolas!  For those smarty pants out there who speak latin, you’ll know the meaning, but for everyone else who is normal so to speak, it means “Little creature”.

It is being held at one of my favourite drinking holes, “Little Creatures Brewery” in Fremantle and will be featuring artworks from some really fantastic talent, not to mention new and emerging artists here in Perth.

I have to say I’m also pretty happy with my artwork… think cute, (yet creepy) little animal with huge ears.. lots of fluff…  and dark devilish eyes, that bore into your very soouuullll!!  *insert spooky music here*! 🙂

Can’t show you yet of course, but you can eventually see the piece and the others, in all their glory when it opens on Wednesday the 19th October, running till November 17.   It starts at 6pm, so hope to see you there for a pint or 3 whilst we oogle all the yummy art. (bring your wallet!)

Check out the wicked poster one of the participating artists created for the event… noice!

The delightful Nana Mouskouri

The delightful Nana Mouskouri

Today was rainy windy and miserable… it was the perfect day to finish off  a few projects I started last week.

One of them was an artwork for a friend, and seeing it hung in it’s special place was very satisfactory… it actually looked fabo in the spot they wanted it hung!  Yay.

Emerald Castles

The other little bit of fun today was creating a different piece inspired by my love of the daggy 70s.  As a teen I remember this lady well, only because at the time she had some enormous hit – AND more importantly,  wore these huge black glasses – which at the time were’nt so cool (different story now a days though!).  So  as  kids we thought this was all pretty hilarious.  She also used to sing with a BIG long haired, bearded Greek guy – Demis Roussos.   And he’d wear those big flowing gowns – called a kaftan, which again made us all crackup and think how weird they both were.

We could talk, we sat there in our purple cord flares, big flower t/shirts and mullet hair dew’s, not to mention a bunch of other dorky 70s fashion paraphernalia.  Oh god how I miss those days!! lol, not.   By the way?….they both have really amazing voices.  Not my cup of tea, but hey I can appreciate the talent.

Think I’ll visit the Salvo’s store for some more classic albums – for further painting inspiration!

 

 

You can purchase this piece from my Etsy Shop.

Breakin’- Ain’t Nobody

Breakin’- Ain’t Nobody

I came across this awesome little clip from the movie “Breakin” – which apparently was first named “Break Dancing – the movie!” lol.  It’s so 80s… no wonder I’m a complete dork… this whole era was what I had to endure and learn from. haha  I love this clip… and it inspired a dorky sketch as well.

Quite a laugh.. totally got me wishing I had some leg warmers, head band and purple Lycra leotards to pop on! Now I’m hooked on the song too. O dear lol.

Is there no hope for me!??  Youtube clip from the movie below the drawing..!

Biscuit Magazine – Featured Artist

Biscuit Magazine – Featured Artist

When I was asked to be Biscuit Magazine’s feature artist for one of their Issues, I was totally blown away… not to mention stoked beyond belief.  Especially when I visited their site to check out what they were all about.  A very high polished publication, filled with so much goodness!  Fashion, photography and some very cool articles… also my ALL time favourite band “The Living End”  have a juicy article on them in the issue.

Very excited to be included, so hop on over to Biscuit Magazine and check out the September Issue!

Disarticulated technicolour cloud cover

Disarticulated technicolour cloud cover

Here are two painting I did yesterday in the Freedom School.  I really love the yellow/blue one, which I have titled “Disarticulated” which among other meanings means – Break up and disrupt the logic of (an argument or opinion) – the other is a little more grisly.


Technicolour cloud cover is the second one.  Quite obvious why I named it that!  I’m not sure it will last  out the week  though…I am  thinking of painting over it again.  It was originally a landscape, and that didn’t last altogether long either!  We shall see.

 

Meanwhile, here is one of my all time favourite painters, Mark Ryden.  This clip show’s him painting “Incarnation” in  time lapse.  It is quite mesmerizing.
