Boom Gallery

Dropped off a handful of paintings at Boom Gallery, in Geelong today.
It's a gorgeous space in an old wool mill and has a great little coffee bar using beans
from Coffee Cartel. They also have a new group exhibition opening next Friday (25.11) featuring local talents.
I highly recommend checking the artwork and the coffee!

Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė

Do take a look at the work of this amaaazing Lithuanian artist, Severija.
She embroiders metal objects and it seems nothing is out of bounds.
Loving her work, particularly because I'm currently working on some paintings that incorporate cross stitching (watch this space...). But her stuff is just something else!!
Check out her site here.

Moss Graffiti

Just had to share this, found at Crafting A Green World.
Might have to give it a try..!

Becky Striepe from Crafting A Green World suggests:

  • In your blender, combine:
  • One can of cheap beer or 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • A few handfuls of moss
  • One teaspoon of sugar.
Blend until the mixture is smooth, and you’re ready to get painting!
You can use a brush to paint your moss onto concrete walls, rocks, or brick. Mist the moss once a day to help it thrive, and soon your green graffiti will take hold!


Illustration Served

Received a nice email today informing me that one of my projects on the Behance Network was selected for the front page of the site Illustration Served. Nice.
You can see the project here.
