Painted the Flaming Flamingos Bros at Avalon’s newest and best restaurant @sunset_diner_avalon. Head to the opening party night this Friday at 5pm to see the bros and eat and drink some delish food and bevs.

The story of the Flaming Flamingo Bros

There was these two flamingo’s and they were identical twins, they were super handsome and all the ladies swooned when they chatted to them or gave them a wink and thumbs up. They travelled all around the world being international flamingo men of mystery until they got to Avalon and they loved the vibe of the town so much that they stayed and never left. They would go surfing during the daytime and when the sun was setting they’d be at the beach playing that game like tennis but a bit different where there is paddles and a ball and you hit the ball to each other using the paddles. What’s that called? Anyhoo they loved the sunset and they were magical, handsome, surfing, paddle balling flamingo bros and they were the toast of the town. The End

I painted Pojo the Pig for a huge group artshow at @thestockroomgallery opening on 12 Dec 6-9pm. All the artworks are 12×12 inches big and it’s on the 12th day of the 12 month. Pretty cool. Let me know if you’re going.

The story of Pojo the Pig

Once there was this pig called Joe the Pig and when he was six years old he discovered a pogo stick under his house. It was his dad’s old pogo stick and it had been under the house ever since the day his dad had broken both his ankles attempting to pogo jump off the garage roof onto the trampoline. After Joe found the pogo stick he started pogoing around on it and it turned out he had a bit of a talent for it and he loved it so much that he pretty much pogo’d everywhere that he went. His friends started calling him Pojo and he started to compete in competitions and get pretty good scores. Then when he was thirteen he discovered skateboardingΒ and he liked it more than pogoing so he stopped pogoing and just did skateboarding instead.

A mural I painted for @touchedbyolivia at Livvi’s Place in Wagga Wagga earlier this year. Featuring crew from Wagga Wagga High. 🎡@jj.peters

Here’s the story of Bailey the Bull from the painting, to read the stories of the other characters scroll back through my posts.
When Bailey was just a young calf one of his young human overlords kicked a stray footy ball and it bopped him on the head. It didn’t hurt him cause his head was as tough as a piece of concrete or so I assume it was. Bailey then picked up the footy and dropkicked it perfectly back to his young human overlords. They were amazed and asked him if he would join their footy team. He said yes and as you can imagine there was quite a bit of outrage from the other teams like in that movie about the snail that wanted to join in that car race and like that movie Bailey was allowed to play and he was pretty much untackleable and his team easily won every game. After that season the governing body of the competition made a rule forbidding cattle from playing in the human football competition so Bailey started a cattle footy competition called the Cattle Footy League, or CFL for short and heaps of cattle joined in and had a grand old time playing footy against each other.
The End

I painted Andrew the Alicorn at a huge charity gala dinner hosted by @unltdaus, it was a great night. Cheers @mktg_aus for the invitation and @1tchy for the sweet photo.

The story of Andrew the Alicorn

Once when Andrew was on holidays with his family up the coast they stopped at a petrol station to get some fuel and snacks and they forgot about Andrew who was out in the back field going to the toilet. They left him behind and just drove away. Up to that point he had never flown as his wings were still developing but when he was running real fast to catch up with his fam he just started to fly and he caught up with them and beat them to the holiday house that they were going to be staying at. He claimed the best room in the whole house because he got there first and his bros and sisters were heaps jealous. The End.

Chappy the Chopped Pineapple was originally developed for some live art I did in Cronulla Mall then I drew him on my surfboard and then I put him on tees and tanks for dudes and kids and then on art prints and now on stickers.

Check them all out in my online shop or in my pop up shop in Westfield Miranda.

And congrats to @julesmuirhead who won the sticker pack giveaway Chappy is a part of!

The story of Chappy the Chopped Pineapple

Once there was a pineapple called Chappy and he was a life guard at the beach. One day he went swimming in the water to rescue a penguin called Tim who was struggling in the rip but instead a sword fish called Jim came along and chopped him up real good like a potato salad. From that day forward e’rybody called him Chappy the Chopped Pineapple and he eventually got promoted to head of the lifeguard division at the beach for examplary service. The End

It’s Spout Trunk Sammy and he appears on the cover of the latest issue of Artfuly Magazine and on the inside there is an interview you may find interesting. Click on the link in the bio of @artfulyart to read all about it.

An Ode to Spout Trunk Sammy

His trunk is powerful and when used right
He always wins any water fight

His skin has a weird orange hue
From eating many carrots, his favourite food

He’s the only Pachyderm in the herd
To sport a beard and not look absurd

Because of this he is the leader
The alpha male, the big chief breeder

The key points that we can take from this
Is that growing a beard is not amiss

Everyone will know that you are a man
And not a woman who is called Sam

My healthiest ever mural at @southvillageshoppingcentre featuring all the characters that you know and love like Lennox the Lemon πŸ‹ and some new ones like Billy the Broccoli πŸ₯¦. Together they are known as the Greengrocer Gang.
An Ode to the Greengrocer Gang

Once upon a time in a village down south
Lived a bunch of fruits and veges who were totally grouse

They loved dancing around all about town
Whenever the music was loud playing a funky sound

Once time they danced all day on the grass
They had so much fun that the time went real fast

They did the Macarena and the chicken dance too
And with every dance they did their numbers grew

Until there was a great multitude of food
So fresh and delicious and all really good

That time I painted Lennox the Lemon πŸ‹ at @southvillageshoppingcentre.

The story of Lennox the Lemon

Lennox was born a big lemon even from birth. He towered above all the other lemons in class and never lost an arm wrestle or any other strength based activity for that matter. No one knew why he was such a powerful and huge lemon but some had their suspicions. One dude thought it was because he was born next to the compost heap and all the nutrients from the compost heap seeped into him when he was forming. That was probably it. One time when Lennox was thirteen he went to the international shot put tournament and beat all the other fully grown competitors because he was so huge and strong. The End.

Yo yo yo! I’ll be at @finders_keepers markets this weekend, it’s on at Barangaroo and kicks off Friday at high noon till 9pm and all day Saturday and Sunday. I’ll have these new Hipster Santa sacks for sale and you can also get them online and at the Mulga pop up shop in Westfield Miranda (level 3 near Kathmandu). Let me know if you’re coming!
The story of Hipster Santa

Everyone thinks Santa is a jolly old fella saying ho ho ho all the time and being all rotund and jovial but really he’s an uber hipster dude and keeps spare reindeers in his beard when his regular reindeers breakdown on Chrismas eve. He actually was the originator of the hipster craze wearing his hipster beanie and his hipster beard before anyone knew what a hipster was. One year heaps of dudes had Christmas wishes to be cool dudes so Santa gave them the gift of hipsterness and before long everyone was being a hipster and growing radical beards and doing all the things that hipsters like to do like having a cold pressed juice.

Putting the final touches on a winged lion for a recent @tynan_motors charity event.

The story of Wayne the Winged Lion

Wayne was a winged lion and out of all the winged lions he was considered one of the fastest and most agile flyer. He often competed in that Red Bull event where the planes go flying through an obstacle course. He never did very well because he was competing with airplanes which have engines and stuff and he just had wings albeit pretty sweet wings like that of a splendid eagle but non motorised wings nonetheless. Having sweet wings also made him a pretty good hunter cause he could swoop out of the dark night sky and eat antelopes and stuff before they even knew they were a midnight snack. Thus he prospered and enjoyed a fine life. The End.

Vincent the viking now on dudes and kids tees and tanks. Available from my pop up shop in Westfield Miranda (level 3 near Kathmandu) or from my internet shop.

He was a collaboration with @mike__watt who drew the outlines and I decorated (or tattooed) him and he appeared in Mike’s zine called Tattoo Me with a heap of other artists.

The story of Vincent the Viking

Once there was a viking and his name was Vincent and he was the raddest viking in his whole village. He was the first viking to rock the suspenders and socks combo before it was even a thing.

He trained every day to be the best darn axe wielding viking that there ever was, for example he would get up every morning at 5 am and chop wood for a good 27 minutes and then do push ups for another 13 minutes before doing 11 or so chin ups and then he would throw his axes at thick tree trunks for another 3 hours. He had a super precise aim and could even split an apple in half from 50 metres if it was balancing on someone’s head.

I was recently commissioned to paint Betsy the mermaid for her birthday, she is pretty magical.

An Ode to Betsy the Magical Mermaid
Once in the Caribbean was born a girl
The moon was full and there was a nice swell
She learnt to surf before she could walk
And learnt how to free dive before she could talk
Some of her best buds lived under the sea
Like Chrisso the porpoise and a turtle called Lee
She spent so much time frolicking in the waters blue
That on her a mermaids tail grew and grew
It was a truly wonderous and magical thing
And as fast as Chrisso she could now swim
So she gathered her buds and told them the news
Everyone was stoked and there was many woohoos
Then they all raced to the lighthouse and some waves they got
All they way to shore where the sand was hot
They ordered milkshakes made by Sammy the crab
At the old milk bar which was pretty fab
