It's too darn hot...at least it's cooler now


The heat here in sunny Adelaide has been stifling it's been in the high 30s low 40s all last week and the week before. Hot and dry and just plane nasty.

From a Box wall I was part of a few days ago I made the stencil and sprayed the surounding pattern. Spray art is fun.
Follow me to lots of Arts.Collapse )

Puppets and poppets my precious


I've been doing puppet shows all week so far and been having a great time. I'm doing a show called Pigs in Wigs, a corrupted fairy tale. It's the story of the three little pigs but retold form the perspective of the wolf.
I've also done a few stints in the puppet cabaret just filling in and generally helping out.
I'm trying to get another few shows up based on my poetry.

Just give me Vodka and watch me dance!


I've seen a bunch of shows including Vulgar Grad a Russian band out of Melbourne that does the most perfect music to drink Vodka to.

Another band I saw was the Crusty Suitcase Band, a full brass and drums line up.

I've seen countless comedy shows and puppet shows too. Some highlights are Professor Haig's Gothic Punch and Judy and Lawrence Leung Learns to Breakdance.

Some art as I'm still finding the time somehow.


The two above the cut are for a set dressing job I'm doing.

Not in the biblical sense but that can be fun to


I've often said it's not what you know, it's not who you know but it's who knows you. I've been working flat out for the Fringe coming soon and have got some fairly good stuff lined up. Firstly I've got my exhibition that you hopefully already know about. Secondly I've got some puppet shows I'm doing that I'll tell you all about as soon as I know. Thirdly I'm doing a whole lot of work for High Beam Global including some set dressing, a TV ad and much more. I love this time of year but am planning a holiday after all the dust settles.

Cast your eye


For those of you in Adelaide or those of you coming hither I have much news. I have some events to talk up and more so when I get some official press. Firstly if you turn to page 70 of this year's Adelaide Fringe guide you will find an ad for High Beam Global. I did the graphic design for it. Not only that but I have an exhibition coming up in High Beam Global Visual Arts program. It opens on the 25th of February and runs 12:00noon to 5:00pm Monday to Saturday. Secondly on page 19 of the Garden of Unearthly Delights guide you will find an ad for the Puppet Palace. I have two things in the Puppet Palace. Firstly a short show that I have written and produced myself and secondly a show I'm playing. I'll of course put up proper press and more details as soon as I get them.
Anyway, here's a sneak peek at the kind of thing going to be shown.

Hither and thither and yon


I've been as busy as bees doing all sorts of work. Mostly graphic design related and drawing for the up coming exhibition.
The fringe guide is out and my ad (The one I designed) is in there. It looks rather good to. I love seeing my work published, it makes me feel ever so fulfilled.
I'm trying to get my head around a book keeping system the tax office gave me and finding it hard going. All the help files and tutorials are presented as flattened JPGs that my screen reader, obviously, can't reed. Thanks again government accessibility and equal opportunity legislation.
I have been having meetings all week and it looks like I'll be having more. January is marching on steadfastly. There are a number of people I need to get in touch with regarding things like publishing, puppets, merchandise, website, printing and a bunch of other stuff. I need to go through everything and write out a list. I fear that a few things are falling off the back of the wagon and I don't want to miss anything important.

Art roundabouts


Despite all my busyness I've been doing the Baby grind daily. I think it's good, it grounds me or something.
