Mulga Artshow at Beach Burrito Newtown

mulga

This Monday night on the 3rd of June 2013 there I am having an artshow at Beach Burrito Company Newtown.

You can eat burrito’s whilst looking at some rad art featuring beards, flouro creatures, zombies and beards!

There will be prints on sale for $15 each and they are sized at 30 x 42 cm. That is the cheapest you will get some Mulga art for, trust me I know!

An Ode to Anton the Aztec Goat

A goat called Anton rowed his boat
Every day around the castle in the moat

And in that boat he wore a coat
And its patterns were great, he was known to gloat

“In the Incas I obtained my patterned coat”
In his daily journal is what he wrote

The coat was payment made in full
For head-butting one rampaging bull

He butted the bull and it ran away
And he saved all the village folk on that day

But that was a long time in the past
And now he can’t even run that fast

His time is now spent as a goat in a boat
Paddling in a moat while wearing a coat

It might seem silly but it floats his boat
That Anton the Goat who’s known to gloat

An Ode to Smokey Joe the Hipster

I would like you to meet Mr Smokey Joe
If it’s a hipster your after he’s the guy to know

He rolls his own durries and wears a big coat
And like a duck to water he’s not one to gloat

He knows the cool bands before they exist
And that’s cooler than hip if your getting my gist

But his claim to glory and hipster crown
Is the growth on his face, his beard so brown

Without this feature he would cease to exist
Be but a vapour of air or a patch of mist

It signifies that he is the dominant man
Because without the beard he’s probably bland

So the lesson to learn and heed this time
And the reason for this here hipster ryhme

Is that growing a beard could be your best move
Get you outta your funk and into the groove

This beard could become your very best feature
And transform you into a hairy masculine creature

An Ode to Ole Pointy Beard Pete

Ole Pointy Beard Pete loves his single fin stick
It goes super fast and rides real slick

He always runs swiftly towards the ocean
As if he is strengthened by some magical potion

His beard trails behind like a bushy tail
And sometimes he uses it as a sail

He’s a surf hunter adventure man
He’s surfed in Alaska and even Iran

He once rode a wave onto the back of a whale
Then the whale got angry and flicked it’s tail

That was the best darn ride Ole Pete ever had
And when he remembers that day it always makes him glad

Bearded Elvis

Today marks the day 56 years ago that Elvis’s debut album, “Elvis Presley” was released.

I drew a picture of him with a sweet beard.

You can buy a print of this artwork here.

An Ode to Bearded Elvis

Most geezers think Elvis aint alive
But the truth is he’s just in disguise

I saw him the other day cruising down the street
He had a beard so spectacular and long and neat

Turns out he’s been hiding away
Behind his beard and bales of hay

All those many, many moons ago
He grew tired of the crowds and the Elvis show

So he pretended to die and began to grow a mo
Then the mo became a goatee that hung so low

Then came the chops and a full beard in time
Thus concludes this story and bearded Elvis rhyme

I drew Terry the Tiger for a Le QC x Mulga collab. You can buy Terry on tees and jumpers at http://quaycollective.myshopify.com/collections/le-qc

An Ode to Terry the Tiger

Terry the Tiger was terrrific indeed
Of this single fact all the animals agreed

He ruled the jungle like a stripey king
Sometimes he would lounge, sometimes he would sing

Everywhere he went he wore his dazzling coat
And when he crossed the river he travelled by boat

He made his castle high in the trees
And he ate of the honey produced by bees

He was the finest specimen in all the land
And he fronted the best jungle rock band

They played every Saturday at the Jungle Pub
And chilled out after in the jungle hot tub

An Ode to Bear Hat Bob

Bear Hat Bob is an outdoors guy
At home in the mountains and under the sky

He walks around with his sunglasses pink
Even at night it seems odd you might think

Bart the Bear was his very best friend
The wilderness they journeyed from end to end

One day in the spring they came across a river
The water was cold it made them shiver

They attempted to cross on a fallen tree
But Bart fell into that freezing stream

He couldn’t swim so he drowned to death
He had breathed his last, his very last breath

Bob was so sad and he cried for week
He cried in the day and he cried in his sleep

To remember his friend, the Bear called Bart
Bob wore him as a hat and now they’re never apart

An Ode to Trevor Trumpet Face

He has big elephant ears and a trunk for a nose
He has a trumpet on his face and it looks like a hose

With every sneeze his big trumpet sounds
And the largeness of the volume knows no bounds

It scares away all the birds in the trees
That’s exactly what happens every time he does a sneeze

Laser Head Lance

Laser Head Lance by Mulga the Artist

The original Laser Head Lance painting is available for sale in Platform72 Gallery, Oxford Street, Sydney

An Ode to Laser Head Lance

Laser Head Lance is a slippery old cat
Lives in a world of shadows covered up by his hat

The one day the wind turned from breeze into gale
Blew up his hat like a boat under sail

Those secrets within did explode out his head
And the colour of his hands were a deep shade of red

His secrets revealed that he’d been quite bad
And the fallout was severe and the people were mad

Oh how the mighty have fallen and the proud do stumble
Now Laser Head Lance is humbler than humble

An Ode to Wavebeard Wally

He’s an old sailor chum and he always smells of fishes
His craft and his trade is the ocean and it’s dishes

He doesnt like to walk on the solid solid land
His boat is his home on the ocean oh so grand

Every day on the ocean has affected him just so
That the beard on his face has found a peculiar way to grow

These whiskers in question have formed into the shape of waves
And it’s not some parlour trick or the way that he shaves

He rocks the full wave beard and it’s pretty darn rad
That’s the story of Wavebeard Wally an ocean going lad

Jolly Joel

And Ode to Jolly Joel

Tropical island’s in the sun
That’s where Jolly Joel has some fun

Where palm trees rustle in the breeze
And that’s where there is no killer bees

Bees of the killer kind just aren’t cool
And if you encounter them while sitting by the pool

You should jump in the water and splash around
Maybe those bees won’t sting you and you won’t be found

I once saw this movie about a girl
Macaulay Culkin was stung and he began to swell

Those stinking bees got him really bad
Then he died and it was fully sad

So what you need to learn after you’ve had a little cry
Is to stay away from killer bees otherwise you might die

An Ode to Barry the Magic Bison

This bison is big, this bison is great
He’s a really nice guy, he’ll be your mate

So this is the way the stories been told
Passed through time and history and generations of old

When young in his life while roaming the plain
He stumbled upon a rainbows tail

This rainbows tail contained a pot of gold
And it’s magical powers entered his soul

He transformed from brown to many a colour
And his magical powers increased in number

He could fly like a kite and climb like a goat
Run like the wind and float like a boat

He could buzz like a bee and sing like a bird
And he soon became the king of the herd

An Ode to Michael The Magical Owl

A magical owl Michael is he
Loves everything to do with the big blue sea

He sails a boat in those Southern Seas
With the waves below he is most at ease

He never goes hungry he always eats fish
Ocean creatures are by far his favourite dish

He has a wine collection that is most super duper
Just one glass at a time lest ye fall into a stupor

Most unusual for an owl is this bird
With the wisdom of a man that is not absurd

An Ode to Gregory the Green Gorilla

Gregory is green, Gregory is mean
Gregory don’t participate in no team

This largish ape with a scowl on his face
Has hands as powerful as a largish mace

And not the kind that you spray
But the kind that when you see it you run away

Gregory the Gorilla is the jealous type
And his emotions manifest on the fur on his hind

Bright green like a chameleon on a banana so unripe
So stay away from his girl lest he turn unkind

Thus goes the tale of Gregory the Green Gorilla
Sometimes as frightening as the Mr Godzilla
