My LJ account is where i blog after comming out my cave after a big slump - this time even more so.

The last month was pretty hellish and i reached an alltime low for unreliability and failing in general. Went from having afluence and half a house to myself to living in a small room with no room to work, no regular job and living day by day on loose change and busking. September exploded into what is usually a busy time for my doing tours, teaching and exhibitions and events. 7 days a week.

Basicly while being exhausted, sick and depressed at letting several projects fall apart
considering retiring full time art to something more regular like prison industry


Firstly probably last possible chance for anyone to register for Pastemodernism 3

If you dont know this is the biggest paste-up art event the world - mentioned on wooster and juxtapose websites. It is a great melting pot of artists of all pewrsuations and this year is a part of the massive outpost festival on cockatoo island - the biggest street art event in the southern hemisphere.

here is the web site
here is the flickr group featuring the pool of the last 2 years
here is the FB group

all you really need to do is refgister and send your art on ready to paste form like a poster or print
plenty of artists new to theis medium involved - see website for details

im also looking to interview ppl for this event



ive been running this on/off since 2002 with various helpers. This year we recieved our funding 5 weeks late which made me cancel most event i didnt have time to work on during school holidays and the lead up to them. im still hoping to put on some of thers over then summer

publish a broad sheet 34 page newspaper one shot mostly on art

a show featuring several foamcore mounted postcard sized tiles of street art photographers work

a show on cencorship

a show with artist cover gallerey with one roll of paper, draw on it in B&W, get kids to colour in then paste up

instead of going overseas ive been moving - next get new job and ST2k for 20011 fest to manage

hoping on having:
broadsheet newspaper
popup gallerey
-affordable street art mart
-cencorship show
-flickrs most prolific street art photographer exhibit

looking like a busy last quarter for year

here are a few goodies from sydney last few months

I did about 30 throwup artworks on stray wood while prepping to move - this one best - not reproducible lucky accident of my signature girl

I know im too sickly and frail to sk8 but ive always been a fan of sk8 culture since i used to watch my brother make boards in the seventies. This was a late entry for a charity show which i missed when curating a kids exhibition for city os sydney. I have several more on assembly line.

A nice one by fukt who is probably the most exiting stenciler in sydney right now. Comment on our supposed leftie government turning cencorship mad - want aretists to have to pay to have work classified like film, theatre, books etc - a prohibitavley expensive and retarded position.

oh really closing down art

letting kids colour in my art is awesome fun

strange design i did - any welcome any to explain

needs mouth and roo foot fixed but ok prelim design

another playful lil design - girl from old sugar add

steel table tennis table i did with aboriginal kids in slurry hills - red yello black with TJ Hickey heads - local kid killed while being chased by police (various interpretations of this story) - which i like to put on any city of sydney mural - locals seem to aprove. Community mural should look like kids did it right?

Ive been busy working towards ST2K festival - my streetart and diy event since 2003

loadsa events and stuff hastily knocked together
im just getting over sleep deprevation now
plus "networking" over beer too many days in a row
mild halucinations and every second thing fucks up day after binge can go away now (clumsier than when i was actualy drunk couldnt paint a curve)

fringe fest in sydney we are a part of is awesome and i think really needed
feels more lose and less contrived than many sydney events

spent day painting with the movement crew

got to draw toons in state gallerey for charity next to some of my lifelong fave aussie painters

heres the pix and links cheers

this is the fgestival folder has program pages and updates to art

Phew - a wacky coupla months and managed to survive managing munchkins and having exciting social ops and fun drawing get 2gethers. Have been fairly healthy self suppoting my self tenaciously throughb art and acumulating some really fucking cool records and some good books. Sorting my stash of shelves got me back into music and reading.

Dumped lotsa comics and books - some good sf and roman history and some old sf picture books and books on armour (i now wish i wish i had shredded some for collage). Still i found some books on assyria/babylonia/sumerian history (pssst Iraq) which has got me reading instead of killing mutants in fallout wiyh as few bullets as possible.

Seen alot of cool street art - lots of beef 2 and my friends getting in trouble with laws and others getting work tagged on by nazis. Also amazed how proffesional the whole street art world is now.

Crews talkin ABN numbers, business plans tax advice not just chillin and drawing. Five years after cleaning out street art from some chic streets and its back but now indoors.

Awesome street art!!!

Have been pretty busy this year - april did 7 days a week which im still living off. The last month ive been recovering and feeling a bit shy and in need of lotsa quiet time and not dealing with people. I do find i go through little phazes like this and i used to perform and stuff as a way of battling these tendancies. Probably need to do something again to stop being increasingly isolated. My spell of bad health last year made me more so too - feeling like im dying cramped my amour a bit. Even online ive been pretty shy - just getting over now. Had my 40th birthday so feeling a bit introspective. Have been cracked onto by old greek men, prostitutes with bad teeth and makeup and old women. Sigh.

Art been doing well - couple of movement crew shows, fashion week, a tv set furnature, some 12 aniversary of my crash campagn posterrs and some bad taste humour.


TV Set Furnature

just back from adelaide fringe and festival of arts season
i was there for the street art stuff mostly

the city looked busy and the celebrations were well attended
many shops were empty and closed on sat and after lunch
lotsa friends laid off since xmas

phd grads working in bbq wherehouse stores and other tragedies
the city is seriously depressed and distant suburban boguns now getting about more do to improved public transport - more agro on the street and bad vibes and intolerance
free bikes might be better than improved public transport im thinking

had a nice interview here:

street dreams and format are decendants of my st5k fest yaz and i started in 2003 - following our strt zine and street art tours in 2002 - from a rooftop zine and diy fair in 2005 during a st5k - a healthy scene has emerged and now they have a one year lease at the format venue

the street dreams was the street art arm of the whole project
with my projector-bike tour show - inspired by GRL new york guys i worked with 2 years ago
there were workops - i learned stuff from stores writing gig
a paint t-shirt party
met lotsa cool old and new artists i was inspired by
a exhibit of designer scale model dumpsters painted by various artists

all posted on my flickr here

tour pix here:
