I am stoked to be a finalist in the 2011 Vodafone New Zealand Music – Technical Awards for my illustration on the cover of the Bannerman Album – ‘The Dusty Dreamhole’!! That album cover was such great fun to make – thanks again to Richie from Bannerman for the opportunity! Check out the amazing work of Nick Keller and Baly Gaudin & Thomas Young the other album cover finalists here
Its been a long week or at least it feels like it! Much to be excited about though, only five more days and we are off to Hong Kong once more followed by a wee bit of a holiday in europe! Cant wait!
The ‘Out There’ exhibition opening at RAMP gallery was great! – thanks to all those who stopped by to say hello. If you haven’t seen it yet the show is on till the 10th of August. There are a range of different works from past graduates of Mediarts,Wintec. My friend Gary Venn has some awesome giclee prints and Lynda Wilson had a great take on the recent royal wedding hat wear! Other friends/artists included Hannah Cleland’s delightful small hairy house, Ani Fourie whymiscal painting style, and Jane Siddall’s beautiful embroidery works – these are just a few of the great works and artists on show. Do check it out!
Also on at present is an outdoor exhibition at the Waikato Museum called ‘Collected Fictions’ – which my fellow artist Lynda Wilson took part in – her work called ‘Bandits’ I think is one of my favourites to date! The minature artworks are displayed in what reminds me of a rabbit hutch structure with separate compartments to view each work. Totally worth a look through and is on display till the 21 August 2011.
Meanwhile lots going on at the moment for me with packing & moving house – planning the building of a new one, also heading back over the seas in a few weeks time so working on multiple tasks to complete before we leave.
This is a small spot illustration i made during the chaos of moving house..
