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

Awesome to make some art for the @fredhollows installation at @vividsydney this year.

A whole bunch of us painted with invisible paints ?on the the innards of a converted shipping container ?and when you go in to it it’s as dark as the ace of spades but them you shine your UV torch ?on the walls and the art magically appears. It’s pretty sweet just like what the Fed Hollows Foundation does when it restores a persons sight ?

Introducing Tiger Hat Takeshi ?? I painted him at @nikoandtokyo and he is the brother of lion Hat Hajime. He’ll be chilling at @nikoandtokyo for a few weeks along with some sweet merch.

An Ode to Tiger Hat Takeshi

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

Introducing Lion Hat Hajime, I painted him at @nikoandtokyo today.

Tomorrow I will be back from 1 to 7pm painting something new, please come and join me for good times and a paint if it is convenient for you ????? An Ode to Lion Hat Hajime
The greatest of beards had this dude that I know
He lived life fast and never slow mo

He travelled the world many times in his life
Many adventures he did have and even some strife

He only had 8 fingers cause a gater got 2
And 9 toes cause a lion nibbled his shoe

With his 2 bare hands he fought that lion
Recovered his foot digit before it was dying

Got it sown back on but it just didn’t stay 
So he got it taxidermied and it really looked great

Sometime later at the watering hole, he met that lion again
They ended up chatting and becoming good friends

They went on many adventures all over the place
Even talked about building a rocket to space

That’s the end of this story I hope you had fun
Remember why walk if instead you can run

I had a great time at @greenroomfestival meeting lots of cool peeps and drawing lots of flamingo’s.

An Ode to Ken and Rumiko the Flamingo Lovers

In the land of the rising sun there was these flamingo’s two
Ken and Rumiko were their names and they liked to do the boogaloo

Every time they saw each other in the poppin flamingo disco
They’d always have a boogie till their cheeks got a rosy glow

Then one night Ken asked Rumiko if she’d like to go on a date with him
They went to the Lobster Hut and their waiter was called Jim

They had a lovely time together and they laughed and chatted away
And before they knew it the night had turned into a brand new day

Now they spend their days together having the greatest time
Those two flamingo lovers that I wrote about in this little rhyme

The End

Spanner Beard Samson Original Painting

My online shop has heaps of rad stuff up there at the moment including very rare original paintings like this one of good ole Spanner Beard Samson whom I named in honour of my heaps strong nephew. Check it out here.The Story of  Spanner Beard Samson

Spanner Beard Samson was the strongest mechanic to ever live. He was so strong that he was constantly breaking his tools as he never really got a grip on the extent of his immense power. He was so sick of his tools breaking that he invented a new type of metal called Samsongold. It had the lustre of gold and the strength of 10 bulls. He made all of his own tools using this new hybrid metal. It was so strong that when he was working sometimes his spanners would go flying out of his hands and get lodged in his beard. The spanners stayed lodged there for his whole life because he could not get them out because his beard was the strongest part of his whole body and no scissors (not even Samsongold scissors) could cut it.

Chief Great Beard

Chief Beard-web

I painted Chief Great Beard recently and he is based on a track from Little May’s debut album “For the Company’.

He is available to buy as a print and on men’s tees.

An Ode to Chief Great Beard

There was this dude and he was the chief
Before he was the boss his name was Keith
He used to be just a regular guy in the tribe
That was before growing a beard he did decide
First his beard was ok then it was good then it was great
That was the point at which he took control of his fate
He became all that he was meant to be
He was a man destined to be wild and free
He rode around the place on a huge buffalo called Bill
And his hunting skills were so superb he always ate his fill
One time when he was in mortal combat with a rival tribe
His beard stopped some arrows from which he would surely have died
He left them in there as a reminder to one and all
That a beard can be the difference between life or your downfall

Newtown Art Seat

For the month of July 2015 I displayed 3 bearded dude heads in the Newtown Art Seat. I called the artwork “Beards, beards, beards”.

There was a poem that accompanied the 3 bearded dude heads, it went like this.

An Ode to Beards, Beards, Beards

Beards are nice and useful too
They are great to house your spanners or flamingo crew
