Respite & Reclination

It’s been a massive year … I did a whole bunch of exhibitions, a solo show, went up to Outpost Project, cranked the website, painted a whole heap of spots … so I’m really looking forward to the next three weeks off work as of next week – pretty much going to paint for the entire duration.

I’ve been working on a new project for about the past month or so, and almost have it all ready, really looking forward to getting it out there!

We did some painting down at Union Lane in Prahran, and Wayne Tindall did this video of the afternoon – was fun, even though I still havent finished my piece as I was coming down with the flu that afternoon …

In the meantime, here’s a small roundup of pics and stuff from the last month or so – post-exhibition!

All things Body Canvas

Well, the weekend was crazy. In amongst frantically drawing up a whole heap of girls and other crazy stuff for my upcoming show, I took a "day off" on Saturday to participate in this years Body Canvas fundraising event at Flemington raceway.

Images sourced from a few different places, links below them …

I was part of the graffiti round, (the hugely talented Mayo took out the competition honours) and I had an awesome model, Sammy, to paint on – she was great with having to sit still and put up with my fussing over getting clean lines for seven hours – even towards the end where I was rushing and stressing at getting it all blocked out!

I  forgot to mention in my blurb about the whole theme for the piece, which was "Hope for a better future" – obviously, mine was all technology based and I was "hopeful for a world of wonder filled with technological advances that aid humanity" (possible that would have helped haha).

Really though, It was all an extension of all the work I’ve been doing for the show.

Honestly, I could have probably kept going into more detail for another few hours haha … but, I think the simple look turned out great.

A fun, but exhausting day, and I can’t thank my model, Sammy Elise enough for her great company whilst I painted, and her patience! A really fun event, and something unique that I hope helped to raise some funds, and awareness, for the National Breast Cancer foundation.
