Here's a Hare I made entirely from pop sticks. A Paddle Pop Leporidae you could say. It's quite fragile though and I continuously have to repair it. Hare repair.
Check out these shots I took in the Valletta Armoury. Various Grandmasters armour and weapons. Some very intricate smithing.
Here's a creature made entirely of scrap wood. This deer would have been a pile of kindling if not for the glue holding it together. I made a skeleton structure on the inside and then glued the wood panels over the top of each other to create the muscle forms. A shout out to my mate Tim for all of the off-cuts he gave me from his furniture making shed :)
The obvious concept here was to build two dragons into a yin-yang style design. I actually had a lot of fun drawing up the diamond scales. Two opposing forces that exist in harmony. This one goes out to Lee and Jason. Peace.
I recently had the band Ghyti visit my studio for some updated photos with their new guitarist Nick. The vignetted group composition (top left) was made by placing a toilet roll insulated with foil over the flash so it sent a very direct but randomly shaped beam of light at the faces. There's some light painting and double exposure in there too as well as a standard outdoor group shot at dusk.
You can check out and a music video from Ghyti below. The video was made using a series of stills I took with a Nikon d40. Find out more about Ghyti here https://www.facebook.com/ghytiandthephilanthropicorchestra
If you are a band and are interested in photography or video to help promote your work I take on a few projects a year so I might be able to help you out. Email me here : email@example.com
The Wooden Dragon Spirit is plane hopping, separating the cloud barrier between his level of heaven and that of the spirits of water, he answers a question for Master Fish by saying "Each life has its way, each way is a journey. And to leap to its end is like jumping from birth to death".
The Rememberz have just released a video I created in conjunction with the band. It was a new approach for me in that the band gave me a stack of handycam footage and two hours with a Ford Galaxy to take as much footage as I wanted.
I've spent a few late Saturday's infront of Rage watching "Karma Police" by Radiohead so it was my first point of reference and a heavy influence on the video. The band wanted a certain vintage look, which alongside of Tarantino, I too enjoy. Thank you to the various Youtube users that provided me with film grain overlays.
As an added point of interest I worked in a format of 1920x860, aiming to give it a particularly wide screen look. Hopefully it's something you like :
There's also a Rip It Up article that gives a good summary of the video and the band.
Here's how my mates and I spent our time a few weekends back. They played music, I drew pictures. Just doing what we like to do. Thanks for the vid spoz
Hey everyone, here's a little experimental pot I created. It was meant to hold some sort of succulent plant but for the time being it's a useful vessel for holding my chickens fresh eggs. I'm considering doing a series of animal pots, what do you think?
I'm putting in a last hard push to get through a few creative projects in the last weeks before Christmas. I'm channeling my inner Tarantino for the current music video I am working on and of course I am painting some fish. I'm also going to perform some live art with Trent Worley this Sunday at Wild at Hart markets at Port Adelaide 10am-12.
