Farmer squid spots some babies!

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I’ve got a mini farmer squid tending to my veggie patch out on the balcony, and he was pretty excited to show me the first little strawberries of the year are starting to grow. Its the first time I’ve tried growing strawberries, so I’m pretty happy to see those little fellas sprouting already. Has anyone else grown these before? Got any tips?

Slam Magazine

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Heres an illustration I did for Slam Magazine (issue 170) last month. It was about a guy (Dom Kekich) who had a bobcat push him down the Nirto Circus mega ramp in one of those giant Zorb balls. Only problem was the bobcat punctured the ball and snapped his leg! Poor dude, sounds super painful, hope hes made a full recovery.

Alibi Room

Monday, July 5th, 2010

After having spent the last few months behind my computer screen animating, I jumped at the chance to do some actual painting today at a local bar (the Alibi Room, New Farm). Now I know I’ve got a long way to go with using aerosols, but I figured this space was a pretty good one to try my hand at them again. The colours that flow out of a can (I was using Ironlak and Kingz Cans paint today) seem to be some much more intense and vibrant than anything that comes from a tube. The down side was that my wrist really didn’t enjoy it. I’ve been battling tendonitis in my right wrist since Christmas (probably a lot longer really) and today really gave it a beating. I was pretty happy with how it all turned out and I look forward to playing around with cans some more, just as soon as my wrist permits it.
