An Ode to Eberto the Cockie
Eberto was a cockie and a very stylish one
He loved flying about and having a bunch of fun
The Banksia flower was his favourite dish to eat
He loved it’s delish flavours and texture so neat
For over a year he once lived in a Banksia tree
He ate a lot of Banksia flowers and was often overcome with glee
He could often be found singing at the top of his voice
Belting out Elvis ballads and sounding pretty darn noice
So next time you hear a black cockie screeching out loud
Listen out for some Elvis vibes in amongst that sound

The brother of Lion Hat Hajime was Takeshi the guy
His adventures were as big as the big blue sky
To the mount of Everest he once captained a hot air balloon
And did a jig on the summit with a Himalayan snow baboon
When he landed in the wild jungles of India land
They met Tony the Tiger playing in his jungle band
Because Takeshi was a master of playing the flute
He hopped up for a jam and it really was a hoot
Takeshi and Tony became the very best of buds
They played heaps of gigs and none of them were duds
So in closing this lil story this is what I’d like to say
Learn yourself an instrument and good friends you’ll meet this way

Cheers @rio_rakoia for the funky tunes.
Cheers @riorakoia for the funky tunes🎵🎶 An Ode to Captain Fumio Flamingo
Captain Fumio Flamingo was a fine old fellow
Whenever he’d spy a flamingo his mood would go all mellow
He devised a plan to keep the good times rolling
It involved getting those flamingo’s into his beard a strolling
In his beard he stuffed heaps of a flamingo’s favourite snack
Gummi worms and in his beard those flamingo’s practically stacked
Now when the seas are deadly and his mood gets low
Captain Fumio need just stroke his beard to get the good time flow

I recently sat down with My Creative Way TV and got deep and philosophical talking all about my art. It gives a pretty good insight into my art making practice and you will really enjoy it.
Mulga’s Magical Musical Creatures picture book is nearly here!
To celebrate I’m hosting a big launch party and artshow at aMBUSH Gallery at Central Park Sydney on Saturday 24 Sep, 4-8 pm. Save the date it’s going to be sweet!
This is a vid of me illustrating a page from the book. Big thanks to Ray Lalotoa who wrote the song as part of the book/music collab project.
Listen to the full song on the Mulga’s Magical Musical Creatures Soundcloud page or below.
I painted on the broken surfboard of pro surfer Adrian Buchan using Posca paint markers.
The music was written and recorded by Rio Rakoia especially for this video.
It is for an art show called BROKEN DREAMS involving ‘LA Division’ artists which sees broken surfboards provided by elite professional surfers repurposed into amazing artworks to convey the message of Take 3 for the Sea. The idea of Take 3 is pretty simple, next time you visit the beach, find three items of trash and throw them in the bin.
The boards will be exhibited at Wild Things gallery on 26 Feb 2016, Manly as part of the Australia Open of Surfing. All proceeds going towards the TAKE 3 education program that focuses on influencing our youth to take action against pollution.
An Ode to the King of the Sea
In the sea there was a king and he was king of the sea
For many years he was content as content as can be
But then stuff started to happen that made him real sad
All this junk entered his kingdom and this junk was real bad
The land dwelling folks got more careless by the day
Dumping their garbage in an offhand kind of way
All this rubbish was killing the creatures of the deep
They were choking on garbage and entering the eternal sleep
So if you see some garbage while you’re down at the beach
Pick up at least three pieces and that would be sweet
The king of the sea will be well pleased with you
He’ll flash you a smile and also a shaka too
I painted Remy the Rainbow Lion on the window of the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre at the University of New South Wales for their Climate Change Festival.
The story of Remy
Remy the Rainbow Lion was the most magical lion that ever lived. He was heaps bigger than a regular lion, like at least 4.5 times larger in diameter.
Whenever there was a big storm in the area where he lived he would run up the mountain like a crazed mountain goat and when the clouds would pass by the Cliff of Wonders he would leap off and land on the clouds and go for a magical ride as if he was Aladdin on his magic carpet.
After going for a bit of a ride he would sometimes get so excited that he would do a roar of glee and out would pop a magic lion rainbow the likes of which the savannah has never seen before.
Sometimes when there was more than one rainbow in the sky at the same time that was because his brother Barry was also going for a ride on the clouds and also getting a bit excited.
