The Bee's Knees

If you click this link you'll see a short video of me and a bunch of other Element Advocates painting a big canvas we when were up in Sydney for the Happy Tree art show. I had so much fun on this day. I was kind of shitting myself because I thought I'd mess up the picture and every one would think I was a fraud but I was reasonably happy with what I painted, and the rest of the canvas looked great. So many different styles. I also got kind of drunk towards the end of the day and woke up with a bee tattooed on my knee courtesy of Sarah Larnach.
Below is a few of photos of the process. I painted the big rooster thing. Sarah helped me paint the plaid pattern in the background because it was taking me ages.

Easey Street Continues

I have added a little bit more to the Easey Street Mural. Its been slow going, I've used a bit too much detail for a big wall I think. The number of spectators who bring me beer probably hasn't helped much either, although it is very much appreciated. I'll post a better picture of the skateboard on the marlin's nose in a few days. Incidentally his name is Rodney Marlin which is a joke that only ageing skateboarders will get.

I have made the "bar" a little deeper. I painted out the back ground in grey first, same with Rodney's skateboard.

I also ordered a few drinks which are not quite finished yet.
