Chinese New Year

I'm a member of a kung fu school in Sydney (although to be more accurate, a lapsed student for a few years now) but when I can I help out at Chinese New Year with lion dancing duties. For those unaware of what lion dancing is please check out this link to my school, Jin... Continue Reading →

You Am I

I went and saw one of my all-time favourite bands in the whole wide world last night. And it was awesome freakin fun. They're an Aussie band and have been around for a  few decades now, and every time I have seen them they put on the best damn rock n roll show ever. Seeing... Continue Reading →

The Black Angels

Last Saturday night I went and saw an American band called The Black Angels. Their style of music is very psychedelic, grungy, bluesy rock and roll. I am reminded a little of Jefferson Airplane and the Doors. My friend and I sat upstairs at the Enmore Theatre and right at the front. I dont normally... Continue Reading →

It all happened so fast

December flew by and I had a small collection of drawings I did over that time, plus some from the last few days.  Collectively they're all a little random but it ends another sketchbook at last. Only took me a whole year and eight days. My dad's long drawn out stay at RPA to have... Continue Reading →

As several of you know I am a student of Japanese taiko drumming, and over the last month Australia's TaikOz and Japan's very own Kodo have been touring the country together. To explain how exciting a prospect that is, it would be like the Avengers teaming up with the X-Men. I did promise myself not to... Continue Reading →

Not only are the taiko, or drums, beautifully crafted generation after generation in Japan, this style of drumming is an art. It not only requires great technique but an insight into Japanese...

Already April

I cannot believe we are four months into the new year - it's ridiculous. It's been awhile since I did some Urban Sketching, admittedly I never felt motivated too, but once I did one I wanted to keep going. I also drew my first "ghost" stop - which is a bus stop that is no... Continue Reading →

A capital idea

I went to our country's capital, Canberra (NOT Sydney, for all my international followers) for a few days. It was mainly to visit the touring Renaissance Exhibition at the National Gallery but I managed to fit in a few more museums and markets. Anyway, for those who do not know, Canberra was a planned city... Continue Reading →
