Vortex Frame of Mind - Acrylics and aerosol paint on canvas.
2 panels, 101 x 76 cm each
I painted my ass off for this one. The pressure was definitely on... how often do you get to hang your piece next to Sam Leach, Juan Ford, Michael Peck, Anthony Lister, and Yvette Coppersmith....??
Big big props to Michael Staniak, the man who put it all together. A standup dude and awesome artist.
Next up, the video of the Secret Wars battle is up:

Also, a while back I did a couple of illustrations for Penguin Plays Rough who were putting together a book of short stories, and I just saw some pics on facebook. I did a picture of Johnny and Vivian Cash, and some naked chicks. Can't wait to get my hands on one. They having their book launch at Sydney Writers' Festival.
And I'm gonna be in a few group shows coming up in next few weeks.
First up is Urban Art Throwup! at Brunswick St Gallery. I'll be doing a live painting on the opening night.
Then there's a group show at Lo-Fi Collective in Sydney to launch Colour By Numbers Gallery. Colour By Numbers is a pop-up gallery concept that will operate both in Sydney and Melbourne, and all over the interweb. Very interesting!
And then, there's a group show at ArtBoy gallery in Prahran, with comic books theme.. and being such a superhero nerd, i'm gonna be in it with some new paintings (the batman vs joker piece + some more new paintings)..
