If you're in Melbourne then drop by the Queen Victoria Market, they have heaps of good quality slippers for only $25.
#2 Hot Tip For Staying Warm This Winter
Before you go to sleep, take your new slippers and slip them onto the paws of the nearest sleeping cat. Now all you have to do is wake up earlier than the cat and you can start your day off right wearing some toasty warm slippaws.Be warned though, the temptation will be to take this a step further and also warm up your hat and mug handle.
The show runs until September 17 and features work by ten Australia based artists; Abdul-Rahman Abdullah (WA), Dion Beasley (NT), David Capra (NSW), Anastasia Klose (NSW), Noel McKenna (NSW), Clare Peake (WA), Danielle Reynolds (VIC), Adrian Stojkovich (VIC) Natalie Thomas (VIC), and me (hello).
For the show I made three new dog themed pieces, one of which being a ceramic hotdog. Here's the claydog in progress.

First up, "You're my Number One" is still on at Firstdraft gallery in Sydney and finishes this Friday. The curator of the exhibition Talia Smith is giving a floor talk tomorrow evening (Thursday 27th) at 6pm so you should totally drop by for that if you can.
Next up I'm in the first group show at True Estate gallery at 134 Lygon Street. The show's called Open House, and curated by Beau Emmet and Elvis Richardson. The opening is this Tuesday, August 1st and then running until September 4th. The show's about what made us the artists we are today, and for this show I'm really excited to be exhibiting a drawing I made way back in 1998 when I was in grade four.
Here's the flyer with the complete artist list, should be rad hope you can check it out.
Thirdly, I'm in a show at Lamington Drive gallery, (52 Budd Street in Collingwood). The opening is next Wednesday, August 2nd, from 6-9pm, and it then runs until Saturday August 19. Also exhibiting in this show is Susan Robey, Madeleine Thornton-Smith, Tai Snaith, Andrei Davidov, Mechelle Bounpraseuth and Dawn Vachon.
The exhibition is basically a hot pot of local artists who sometimes work with ceramics, and it's called "Cooked".
And last but not least I've got a new sculpture and some of my self published books in an exhibition called "Self Made; Zines and Artist Books" at the State Library of Victoria.
And so yeah, hopefully you get a chance to slip on your slippers and check out one or maybe even all five of the exhibitions I've just mentioned, and if you'd like any more info on any of them definitely don't hesitate to send me an email or to shout at me from across the street.
Most importantly though thanks heaps for reading, hope you're having a nice week, and just for fun here's a drawing I did of two puppies that I saw today.
