Louis admiring the handiwork of the De La Salle Caringbah students currently on display next to Miranda post office.

Once a year I hold a “How to draw a gorilla” workshop at the school and these are the resulting creations of the students. One of them even inspired my Mountain Head Marv the gorilla artwork ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ #mulgatheartist #gorillasareneato #gorilla

This is me with the Birth of Beardus. He is now chilling nude on the moon at my pop up shop in Westfield Miranda.
An Ode to the Birth of Beardus

In the bearded world its a fact little known
That the first ever beard was not actually grown

It appeared fully formed and huge and long
Attached to a man as the world sang a song “Beardus is born, Beardus is here
What a beautiful beard, let us all cheer!” Indeed worthy of song was the beard born that day
The greatest beard to have ever lived so the legends say

The beard was so great clothes the man had no need to wear
His private parts covered by that beautiful face hair

Sadly the purity of beards slowly diminishedย over time
Each generations beard with less length and shine

But we hold out hope that the beard is here to stay
Growing a little on every mans face each and every day

The End

Say hello to Dougie Dolphin Beard! ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ˜Ž The original Dougie painting and heaps of other original framed paintings are now available from my online shop (link in profile) or pop-up-shop in Westfield Miranda.

An Ode to Dougie Dolphin Beard

At the Sydney Opera House Dougie was the dudeย 
Who kept the spider webs away with his trusty broom

Clambering all over them sails he’d do every day
Shooing the spidies off and brushing the webs away

His hair transformed gradually over time
To resemble the very building he cleaned to a shine

But one fateful day as he buffed the big sail
His footing slipped and his harness did fail

He slipped all the way down to the ground
And landed on a jumping castle with a big bouncy sound

He was catapulted 50 metres into the drink
And collided with a dolphin called Little Pete

Into Dougies beard Little Pete was locked
Whenever they walked around most everyone was shocked

They stayed that way for 15 whole yearsย 
Held together by the strength and magic of Dougies beard

The End

The full hairy crew at the Baby Bear Bar.

An Ode to the Baby Bear Crew

They were known in town
For having the best beards around

They were bushy and big
Like a mighty big fig

Rustle in the breeze their beards didn’t do
Cause they were thicker than the beards of me and you

They would hold weekly seminars at the club
On how to grow a beard bushy like a shrub

They had great results and the beards began to grow
Their town won first place at the annual beards town show

When the bearded peeps walked around town
They’d comment to each other “that’s a nice beard bro”

Community spirit was at an all time high
Beards bringing peeps together, brings a tear to the eye

The story of Angus the Flamingo and Molly the Beagle

It’s a little known fact that beagles and flamingos are best friends in real life, wherever you see beagles in the wild you will also see flamingos. It’s true, go and watch a documentary on flamingos and look below the flock of flying flamingos and you will see a whole bunch of beagles running around down below. Sometimes they dress up as flamingos to provide camouflage from predators but they are there, believe me they are there.

Angus the Flamingo and Molly the Beagle where no exception to this best friend rule. Sometimes when Angus the Flamingo gets tired of flying around he sits on Molly the Beagles back and gets a lift down to the shops to buy some prawns. Sometimes when they are journeying and they come to a river that is hard to cross Angus the Flamingo will pick up Molly the Beagle and fly her across the river. They are pretty much the perfect team. Like Captain Planet but better.

Here’s the full pic of Kraken Karl, I drew him for @krakenrumau and the release of the limited edition ceramic bottle.
๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŠโ›ต๐ŸŒ• An Ode to Kraken Karl

There was this beastly kraken and his name was Karl
He was a temperamental old beast known for his snarl

On a secret caribbean island he lived in a bottomless lagoon
If any vessels sailed near their destruction would be soon

Any man that ever saw Karl would never live to tell
Thus him and his secret island was a secret kept well

One fateful full moon night a ship sailed by quite close
With a full moon party underway let’s just say they were the opposite of morose

Karl awoke from his slumber like a beast from the deep
His snarling heard before his tentacles began their deadly creep

He unleashed his fury bolstered by the full moons light
He crushed that ship to smithereens with all of his might

The cargo aboard that doomed vessel was lost to the waves
Barrels upon barrels of rum floating all away

It was many years later when another ship sailed within sight
A storm bore down so they sort refuge in Karl’s lagoon for the night

There was no sighting of krakens as they feasted on gouda
Luckily for them Karl was away at his brothers bucks in Bermuda

They found an ancient bottle stained black on that island place
Filled to the brim with spiced rum you should have seen their face

Thus that is the tale of the bottle that we now see
A magical thing like a flower to a bee

The End

Coconut Head Fred had the best moustache in the coconut tree. Some say the best on the island. Nevertheless he always had a good time wherever he went and was often spotted bicycling around the island collecting rubbish and putting it in the bin because if he didn’t then the rubbish might blow into the sea and that would be super crap.
The End.

I drew Bobby the Beagle for mum’s birthday today. We had a beagle when I was a kid called Bobby and then later on we had another beagle called Mambo who was Bobby’s nephew.
The story of Bobby the Beagle

Bobby the beagle was a heaps nice dude, he spread peaceful vibes wherever he went like a sweet fragrance. Although if he escaped from the backyard he would roll around in the nearest dog poop ๐Ÿ’ฉ and after that he would not have a sweet fragrance at all. He had heaps floppy ears and was victorious at a lot of dog competitions in the floppy ears category. His floppy ears were so magical that one time he thought happy thoughts and then flapped his ears and flew from one end of the swimming pool to the other end whilst holding his breath. He was definitely a unique doggy.

New Hayden the Giraffe limited edition magnets now happening!

Grab yours for free from my pop up shop in Miranda Westfield (level 3, Target end next to Australian Geographic) or when you order from my online shop. Hayden’s also available on kids and babies tees and paper and canvas prints. Whoot!
The story of Hayden the Giraffe

Hayden the Giraffe is a funky fella. One of his favourite activities is to play soccer. His coach tells him that he needs to play left fullback but he canโ€™t help but have a run up the field at every available opportunity, he just loves the thrill of the chase.

At pretty much every corner kick he scores a header and wins the match. Heโ€™s really good at headers because he is heaps tall and he can aim exactly where he wants the ball to go with his little bally nobs on his head.

I painted Herman the Hotdog for a fund-raising exhibition at the Sydney Children’s Hospital opening on the 7th of December.
The Story of Herman the Hotdog ๐ŸŒญ

When Herman the Hotdog was just a little hotdog living in the 80s he loved the boom box culture where dudes would cruise the streets with boom boxes perched atop their shoulders blasting banging tunes so that everybody could appreciate them.

When he grew up to be a big hotdog he knew that was what he wanted to do to. But as so happens in life things turned out differently and he somehow found himself studying law followed by a successful career as a personal injury lawyer in the 6th best law firm in the city.

About 10 years into his career just as he was up for promotion to partner (and the first ever hotdog as a partner in any law firm) he remembered his childhood dreams of being a boom box hot dogger.

He decided that he wasn’t following his dreams by being a lawyer so he quit the lawyer biz and bought himself a sweet 80s boom box and started his boom box career. Turns out he was a super natural 80s boom boxer hotdog and his boom box biz boomed. He was booked back to back for weddings, parties, bar mitzvahs, Friday drinks, music festivals, club nights you name it. One time he was even booked to play at one of Elton Johns legendary parties.
