Occasional Blog Posts

I mostly update on Instagram but I put up blog posts here for bigger things.

A Curious Pageant wrapped up!

Thanks so much to the wonderful people who came down to celebrate with me!

Here are a few pics of the install, we went with drippy walls and bunting strung across the flow of works:

Our little merch wall:

I didn’t take many pics during the night as I was holding a drink and I’m crap at taking photos with one hand:

Here are the pins I offered on the night: a walking fish in a couple of colour ways, and an antlered duck. These were priced at $15 each and there are limited amounts left so if you are keen to grab one contact The Stockroom Gallery.

I also released my first A3 sized limited edition print, “Monomyth”, this is $90 in an edition of 30, plus a few other limited edition A4 prints available such as these ones:

Each limited edition print comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Also some open ended A5s:

In the days before the show opening I painted a mural on the outside of the space featuring augmented reality!
Here are a few WIPs. Me in the comfiest overalls ever spraying the red paint to create the gradient effect:

The first lines going in:

Some colour and underpainting squiggles:

Most of the colour in, before the shading:

Mostly done, before the last black outlines and white highlights (notice the cars in these pics…I was taking photos from the other side of the road!):

And done!

Another angle:

It was a biggun, 4m tall by about 5m wide I think. Here’s an animated gif of the augmented reality:

Thank you so much to everyone who came by, bought an original or a print, or shared my work and the mural on social media…I’m so thrilled at the end result of the show that I worked towards for many months, which worked out to be my first solo show since 2013. I couldn’t have done it without Melika at The Stockroom Gallery who as always went above and beyond to pull it all together. Thanks you guys!!
