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

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 ?

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
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

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

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

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
I just updated my online shop with some sweet kids and dudes gear.
Each design is pretty limited so get on it quick.
I was invited to design a limited edition artist label for Phoenix Drinks Organic Cola.
As part of their Love Project, Phoenix have partnered with Sustainable Coastlines and Tangaroa Blue to help clean up and protect our beautiful beaches and coastal walkways.
I recently created EP artwork for Sydney band Audient. I also painted Radical Ralph on their EP launch night.
I am excited to announce that I just retired from my day job!!
From henceforth I will be a full time art dude wandering the country in my poncho and riding a mule.
Thanks everyone for the support to date and I am looking forward to all the great times ahead!
