This is the second T-Shirt in this series, across from where I live, this is one of the many buildings, its a bank or owned by one.

This is up at Redbubble as a T-Shirt, you can here at Redbubble.

Sketch Pad : Part 2

My latest creations using Sketch Pad. It's good for putting an idea up and it should work fine on any computer. Although I did happen to try this on an Iphone but it just didn't work, very slow, and hard to use.

Gregory Street Directory: Part 1

Today I bought a canvas (36x36 Inches) for a this collage I'll be working on with two Gregory Street Directories, mapping out Melbourne. There a little bit dated but have a great retro look to them. I haven't bought a canvas for about 5 years now, it's been awhile to make something this size.

Time to Rock!

A T-Shirt devoted to my Casio watch, hardly ever wear it unless I'm going out. Did originally have 40 in the time but was told that was bad luck in Chinese culture, so I took another time.

You can get a T-Shirt of this here ar Redbubble.

My Space Stephen Turpie

My Mum saved this article (the Age, Sat May 1st 2010) for me about Stephen Turpie, one of my Art Lecturers back in 1999.

Sketch Pad HTML5 Demo

Today I found this HTML5 Demo Sketch Pad. I was using this on my Mac Book with the Firefox browser. Not a pad little program, probably would be better with a Wacom Tablet or a Ipad. When saving an image it saves it as a png file in a new Firefox window. Also wonder if this would work with an iphone.

Also Darkroom is a HTLM5 photo editing program, which looks interesting.

Artscape - Photography Hijacked

Just watched the Artscape pod cast Photography Hijacked (via ABC au), showcasing contempory photographers. three who caught my attention were Graham Miller, Dean Karr and Angela Boatwright.

Graham Miller is Influenced by literature and Movies, creating visual short stories, capturing mood, disconnection and broken dreams. Takes pictures of Isolated people in the enviroment and has a great use of light

Dean Karr is a Rock n Roll and Music photographer and Angela Boatwright is a Photographer of Heavy Metal Culture. These took my interest as I've been taking photograph's of live music for some time now, and good change to see what other people's take is on photographing these events and people who go to them.
