Recently i did some graphic design for Melbourne sound company JOLT. They create experimental and found sound combined with orchestral music. There recent project over the weekend at Footscray Community Arts Centre was a free gig where the sound was made with Jolt artists as well as the Amplified Elephants, a disability sound group from melb as well as Noise Scavengers a youth based group founded at the Cloverdale Community Centre in Geelong. Those who follow my work may recognise my elephant in the gas mask…as i was told to do my thing and use my artwork within the design…which is always the best kind of graphic design!

So if your out and about in melb keep your eyes peeled for my elephant billposters, there should be 500 round town. There will also be a cool poster coming out soon with a vulture on a pile of electrical and white goods…also featuring a TV with a mash up of Charles Manson and a Buddha! So keep your eyes peeled!

There is also another gig coming up in december at 45 downstairs, in Melbourne.

Visit there site for further details on times, dates and prices >>

Above is one of the A5 catalogue/books that folds out into a poster.

Here is my new print, “Ceci n’est pas un Banksy”.  Sold a few of these over at the Sweet Streets festival. It’s just a bit of a piss take on how anything using a stencil is called a Banksy. What about Blek? …among others!

Anyway, this was originally made just as a tongue in cheek image for a friend…originally titled, “The treachery of copyright images”. Looks sweet in the flesh…a solid and lush deep flat blue to it.

Email me if you want one…going for about $70 AUD (plus postage).

Well its been a few weeks since i have updated here. So it has been interesting times…I have been busy with work stuff but was also out of action for a bit with a torn calf muscle…yes painful, and it went pop…out loud!

The Sweet Streets festival has finally come to a close. It proved to be sucessful for me with my painting in the award show selling, as well as four prints i had in the folio on the mech desk. My piece created in the collingwood underground art park also found a home as part of the charity auction. There were a few serious bargins to be had at the auction, so if you missed it be sure to get along to next years one if you want to take home some seriously cool art at great prices, and help a charity in the process.

Anyway, I will be updating a bit more over the coming week, but here are a few cool shots from the collingwood underground. I only had time to get some pasties together…but its all good!

Head to head with HaHa…mine is the skull stencil. You can also see the magnifying glass by phoenix the street artist, and some little men by Civil. (Not sure who did the quote piece or the pyramid one)

Sexy Scissors…

My little terrorist…

No Frills Mickey vs HaHa…pretty sure he’s going to get smashed!

Peace Out!

Well, its been an interesting few days. I have made a new small Mash Up Zine playing with the idea of reintroducing the artists hand into a photocopied zine to embody it with a bit more ownership and value…Think the Artist’s mark versus Art in the age of mechanical reproduction.

Zine – End Game available soon from Sticky Institute in Melbourne.

Small hand sprayed edition of 20

…so keep your eyes peeled as they will go quick!

Exhibition – I also was lucky enough to get one of my paintings selected for the Sweet Streets street art exhibition coming up in Melbourne this October. It wasn’t the work I was hoping was selected, but getting a work on the wall is all the same at the end of the day. Anyway, to find out more about whats on during the festival follow the sweet streets link above.

Mail – Today I received a few awesome paste ups from the crew over at UK based Prefab77. The pasters will be hitting the streets of Melbourne soon, maybe during Sweet Streets…so keep your eyes peeled.

Or go visit their site and see their awesome art >>

Old Friends – I caught up with Mel Kerr, a Melbourne artist and an old friend of mine this week at her studio. Her work inspired by suburban interiors and urban exteriors blends fine art beautifully with inspiration from street art.

 So go check her art out here >>

 

Copyright Breach – And the final bit… not as fun as the rest above, is today when I went to log into ebay I found one of my t-shirt designs for sale on ebays front page from a seller/company over in Thailand. The funny thing is, that its not even a particularly good design of mine. They had also ripped a few from mechline, and a few others designers also. I guess if you look at it one way its flattering. But if you look at it another way it just pisses you off.

Anyway, at least I can say things are never boring!

Enjoy,

No Frills

Here are a few images of some of the awesome new stencils by Melbourne based street artists HaHa. I have sat on these pics for a few weeks to avoid being a spoiler…as they were taken in his studio and were for an exhibition in Brisbane. Its now opened, so i thought i would throw them up here now. They are pretty impressive being about 2.5 metres high and using up to 40 layers.

So keep your eyes peeled for his work, its well worth it!

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.

Here are my new die cut to shape stickers that just arrived. Very happy with the results…they look sweet.

and these pamphlets are my tongue in cheek ‘Dollar a Day – Change an Artists life’ brochures. These will be out and about in the public sphere soon.  Although, they may end up in black and white on coloured stock to make them viable as freebies and viable for my hip pocket. So if your looking for a laugh, keep your eyes peeled…

and finally a little stencil of my local just for fun. Enjoy!

Here are a couple of new mash up images that i have been playing around with this week. I was thinking of maybe making a few screen prints using these images onto plywood. Not sure though…So at this point these are basically straight digital print mockups.

 

and up at Hosier Lane Melbourne…

If you go for a wander down Hosier Lane in Melbourne at the moment you may stumble on the new Obey piece to go with the exhibition of his prints upstairs at Until Never Gallery.

and here is another section…

Methinks it looks pretty sweet. Get there before it gets burried in tags. There were a few pieces in the Citylights lightboxes also.

I also stumbled across one of my old stickers.

And this cool David Bowie dog sitting in a classic old car.
