You ant seen nothing yet

Hey, I've got a couple of little things, (a ceramic sculpture and a book of my drawings), featured in an exhibition called "Self-Made: Zines and Artist Books", curated by Monica Syrette, that's open now until November 12 at the State Library of Victoria

So if ever you find yourself checking out books from the library in the next couple of months please also check out this show!
In more super exciting news, my ceramic sculpture "Ken Donut" has been selected as a finalist in the 2017 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize!
"Ken Donut" is the latest in a series that pays tribute to some of the contemporary Australian artists I admire, sprinkled with playfulnesss and iced so thick with love you’ll have to brush your teeth after looking at it. 

The 2017 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize is held at the Woollahra Council Chambers in Sydney and opens on October 13th. In the meantime though I've got work in three group exhibitions that are on right now-
The group show I'm in at Lamington Drive in Collingwood, (curated by Jane Sawyer and Shena Jamieson), is still on until August 19.  
The group show I'm in at True Estate in Brunswick, (curated by Beau Emmett and Elvis Richardson) is still on until September 4.  
And if you're in Sydney, the group show I'm in at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, (curated by Sophia Cai and Kathleen Linn), is still on until September 17.
I think they're all really special and unique group shows so hopefully you get a chance to see some of them if you haven't already, but either way thanks heaps for reading, hope you have a nice weekend and to finish up this blog, here's five drawings from the last couple of weeks...

"Here's a drawing I did of the movie poster for Antz, except I very cleverly drew the characters wearing pants and added a P to the title."

"Huge congrats to Mitch Cairns for his beautiful Archibald prize winning painting. And just for fun, here's a portrait I just did of John Olsen"

'Mirage Equality"


If you're in Australia please make sure that your electoral address is up to date. As someone who's moved homes in the last 12 months I just did it myself and it seriously only takes a couple of minutes. The fact we don't have marriage equality in Australia is cruel and embarrassing to say the least, and even though the proposed plebiscite also seems cruel and embarrassing, voting yes could hopefully help make a difference. So yeah, click here for the link if you need to update your electoral postal details.
