Weekly Drawing: week 10

What I love about the rain

The dirty city is finally washed like a reluctant child avoiding bath time. 
The plants quench their thirst, while the people run for shelter. 
The gushing slushing streets roll and flow like forgotten creeks.

One of my dream jobs would be to design Lego models...

Last night I had lots of fun building my new Lego Lighthouse. As I filled out the online product survey I realised one of my dream jobs would be to design Lego models...

Four designs I would make:

  1. Captain Kidd on the Adventure, his privateering rig “well suited for catching pirates: weighing 284 tons with 34 cannons, oars and 150 men” (Source: Wikipedia). Just imagine this one in your living room!
  2. Charles Darwin and Captain Robert Fitzroy on the the HMS Beagle.
  3. Django Reinhardt in a gypsy camp.
  4. Matthew Flinders and George Bass charting the coastal inlets of Port Jackson in the little sailing boat Tom Thumb.

Publicity for The Lurkers album Padlock and Chain

The Lurkers CD launch poster on Regent St, Redfern
I recently had a lot of creative fun designing and illustrating The Lurkers the latest album Padlock and Chain. It was great working with like minded people. They’re great a mix of old time folk music, punk attitude and three part harmonies.

Album Launch Saturday, 17th September, The Red Rattler, Marrickville. Get tickets through The Sydney Fringe NSW.

Hawthorne Canal Community Artwork Launch

On Friday last week, the Hawthorne Canal Tunnel mural was launched. It is part of the Greenway forming across Sydney from the Cooks River to Iron Cove. One side is covered in a giant community mural in artwork, co-created by artists, school children and other community members. On the other side is a "story wall" mural, which I was lucky enough to be asked by Leichhardt Council to put together. At 25 metres, this is the largest design I have ever created.

This is an amazing project which has come to fruition after five years of community work. I was just in on the last five weeks! Project heroes include:

The band from Kegworth PS & Jamie Parker MP

Every launch deserves a sausage sizzle!
