Currently the Eureka Hotel is in the process of getting a massive street art makeover by some of Melbourne’s best street artists. The artists working on the project are HaHa, Vexta, Kaffine, Drew Funk, Shida, Klara, Lucy Lucy, s-701a, and a bunch more. Somehow I was  lucky enough to also manage to get an invite to come along and be a part of it. The first order of business for myself was to do a massive 3 metre high bear on the front of the venue.

Below are a bunch of process shots of the bear getting done.

and finally Lucy Lucy sketching out a drawing for a colab with Kaffine. In my opinion this ended up being the best piece in the venue when completed.

More finished pix to come after opening night(29th June…this saturday!)…So get the word out and come have a look at some awesome street art.

Yesterday while in Melbourne I popped into the Blender Studios to say hi and stayed around for Trails…a melbourne tradition and a fun night of drawing. Always a worthwhile session if your about when its on. It took place in the new Silent Army Storeroom a zine/small press outlet put together by Michael Fikaris. One of the warm ups we did to get people to be a bit looser and have fun was a surrealist drawing type of game of Chinese Whispers. Each artist had five minutes to do a drawing then would flash the drawing for five seconds to the person next to them to redraw within a minute, this repeated until all players had drawn a variation of all other artist’s artworks. Make sense? Well we found it complex too…especially after a few drinks!

Anyway below are the images (In sequence) based on my drawing of a skull made out of worms…

Not a bad way to get 81 drawings from 9 people in ten or fifteen minutes!

I also can’t leave the Blender without leaving my mark…

And finally the other bit of recent news is we have adopted a new little Birman kitten/cat from the animal shelter. She has been a fairly sick little one having an epileptic fit, issues walking as well as being fairly under nourished…but she is so cute, and has starting to settle in gained 500 gms in the last week alone showing a healthy appetite.

So say hi to Audrey…
