Apart from the fact that i started my big weekend on thursday with the Gordon Institute’s Grad Show, Friday night was the launch of ‘Pinned’ over at Boom Gallery. A crazy night where i somehow managed to sell 12 works…Yep, you read that correctly! Not what i was expecting…but more than happy to accept. 😉

Shots of the show @ Boom Gallery below…

A big thanks to Boom and those who continue to support my art by acquiring pieces!

So after having a big night in celebration, I had to be awake and up at Boxhill Hospital to give back to the community and do a makeover of their Adolecent Health Unit with a bunch of other melb artists bright and early. Organised by Doil over at the Melbourne Street Tours some of the other artists included the man himself Doil, Adi, Tad Evil, Rusty, Makatron and some of the boys from the Napier Crew. If there was any fear i was going to fall asleep during the day from the big night, that quickly went away due to the complete…and i mean complete soaking that i got on the way to the hospital.

Anyway, below are some pix from the day once the rain disappeared…

Above: A piece in progress I did with TAD using my Think Tank image.

Below: A couple of overview shots.

And below a couple of my fav pieces from the day, the first one by the boys from Napier Crew and the second by Makatron.

And finally below a few of my NoFrills cans have finally started to hit the streets…

On Sunday the madness continued with the scramble to get ready to go set up a table over at the Charles Street Artist’s Market over in Brunswick. A beautiful day in the sun, lots of great live music and good people. So keep your ear to the ground for the next market which I think is running monthly.

Phew…feel tired just retelling this. Think i will sleep well tonight.

Peace Out…NF!

The theme is simply small unframed works pinned to the wall to try to keep prices down…keeping the GFC(Global Financial Crisis not the Geelong Football Club!) and christmas shopping in mind.

I will have a mainly archival prints, many of which haven’t been shown before up on the wall. So if your in the hood pop by have a wine, chat to the artists and enjoy the art!

Somehow on Sunday I managed to get involved in a live drawing session at ACMI for the closing party for the Hola Mexico Film Festival. Arranged by Michael Fikaris, there were a bunch of cool artists and we basically decorated skulls for the film goers to help celebrate the Day of the dead. There was good people…free Mexican beer, food and live music…so how could you not have a good time!

Below is one of my Skulls!

And speaking of the dead…i managed to find myself in the middle of the Melbourne Zombie Shuffle during the daytime which is always a fun time!
