I got my ‘Terrorists often wear suits’ image back from the framers yesterday. It’s the version pasted on the billposters that were taken down from Hosier lane recently. It one of my favs for a while as it looks really precious the way it has been framed, while still remaining very street in my opinion.

I also got some tees this week for a friend, one of which was the same image.

The mailbox was actually pretty full this week as i also got a pile of new stickers too.

What else…hmm…I also managed to drop into the semi-permanent show this week in melbs, well worth a look especially the piece by Beastman on the wall. Ghostpatrol has a new one on at No Vacancy QV which is awesome…go see his bizarre/tent thing…you feel like a kid again. And i spent friday night at 1000 pound bend seeing the ‘just another group show’…and then having a few…way too many over at the blender studios. Oh and went for a wander on the street art tour today which was fun times. I actually got to see a heap of art this week considering i have been super busy and up to 2am every night doing graphic design on the side. Anywho…

Peace out!

Here are my new paintings based on my ‘Terrorists often wear suits’ image that just recently went up in Rutledge/Hosier Lane. The terrorists wear a range of abstracted multinational logos on their suits. These are a bit experimental, being digital prints on a heavy weight canson watercolour paper with spray paint…and the odd bit of ink over top. Then a matt varnish top coat. I’m having a bit of fun with them…fun enough to drag me out to the workshop in this cold weather. Enjoy!

Today about a dozen or so artists hit up the back section of Hosier lane in Melbourne to do a wall in protest of the BP oil spill. There were some of the familiar suspects from the scene including HaHa, Civil and Mags(from brisvegas) among others. It was a pretty cool day with everyone helping each other out and working well together to link in a whole bunch of diverse styles and create a bit of unity surrounding this important issue.

Below the hive of activity:

I think this piece was my favorite for the day. It kind of sumed up the overall message in a light hearted way. I have a few process shots so you can see it coming together.

This work was also pretty rocking, and a massive stencil  The text is a little burried in the image but it says ‘ Cars suck ‘, and hopefully it works on a subliminal level. Bikes rule!

Here are a bunch of other shots of the work getting made.

below are a couple of stencils by HAHA:

 The crew were still going when i left for the day…so get on down there if you are in the neighbourhood, as its well worth a look at the wall. Those of you who follow my tees may be familiar with these little images. 😉

and this one…

We also helped put up a set of the new Breakdown Press Peace Posters. These are also floating about in Melb for free, so keep your eyes peeled as they are well worth a look.

My latest statement on BP and their mess. The mess that could have be avoided if the bottom line was not more important than environmental safety. Although, BP are not alone. Thousands of oil spills happen every year and most get little or no media coverage yet do untold damage. Its time to change and move toward the more sustainable and safe alternatives that have been developed such as solar, wind and hydro to name a few.

Stay tuned to see more of this guy!

A couple of new designs to express my dismay for BP’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This is a terrible disaster! Considering we have the means now to move away from our fossil fuels, and the fact this is going to have a long term impact on the sea life in the area(and a large surrounding area), water quality and beaches and even the people who live off the sea in the area. If you agree with these sentiments, join me in expressing it on your chest…and make sound energy choices to start moving towards a more sustainable future.
