Wolli Creek

On the weekend was National Tree Day. Lots of local councils organised tree planting events and a friend of mine is a member of the Wolli Creek Preservation Society (WCPS). They are a group of volunteers dedicated to protecting a rarity – native bushland in inner Sydney. It would be like finding a natural woodland... Continue Reading →

On Saturday aftenoon

I went to one of my favourite sketching spots with a friend on the weekend, Camperdown Cemetery. It was established in the mid 1800s and I would say the last time it was used was a century later.  The main kind of activity it sees now are dog walkers, people on lunch breaks, history buffs...

Urban Sketchers meet up

I finally found time to head out to an Urban Sketchers Australia meet up. I couldn't stay the entire day so I went in earlier to get a head start. After spending some time considering how to approach drawing architecture (see Brick by Brick post) I really wanted to implement what I learnt. It wasn't so... Continue Reading →

Let the music play!

I didn't think I would be entering more t-shirt designs so soon, but one of Threadless' current competitions is to design shirts with a Fraggle Rock theme. And I loved Fraggle Rock as a kid. For those unfamiliar with it, it was a show in the 80s Jim Henson created. The Fraggles lived in a... Continue Reading →

Abu Dhabi Do!

In February I was given the exciting opportunity to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to play with TaikOz. A huge honour, considering I'm not one of their more dedicated students. It was a unique advenutre and a bit of an insight into the life of a professional touring musician, and it... 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 →

Alexander the Great

Visited the Australian Museum today to see the touring Alexander the Great exhibition. The collection comes from the State Hermitage, St Petersburg, Russia which is on my art bucket list. One thing I will say about the incredibly rich and powerful, they got a lotta booty and they like to show it off. So thank you,... Continue Reading →

Sketchbook Project 2013

On Monday I sent off my completed Sketchbook Project - a whole month before it's due!! Huge feat and huge relief! But if I'm completely honest with you, I did cut out the last two pages, hee hee. But I had good reason for it which I will explain. Sadly, I didn't enjoy working on... Continue Reading →

1st Urban Sketchers Australia meet up

It was a much needed day out of sketching for me, and although Sydney was thrown into 40˚ heat leading up to our first Urban Sketchers Australia meet up, the gods were fairly decent towards us on the day. The gardens are a lovely refuge in the inner city and even though there was a... Continue Reading →

Breaking out

I was given the opportunity to sell some paintings. I wasn't sure what to charge as it puts a bit more pressure on you when it's commissioned work. But the brief was pretty open as long as it related to taiko music. So I came to an agreement if they let me experiment I won't... Continue Reading →
