Party Duck

It’s Party Duck! I was commissioned to paint him for the upcoming Wollongong Uni Garden Party.
An Ode to Party Duck
There was a duck and he was a grumpy dude
Some people called him evil duck others called him rudeHe ruled the Wollongong Uni lawn with an iron feather
His methods were extremely brutal but also kind of clever

He terrorised all the students and teachers alike
If he saw you with a sandwich he’d chase you off and then take a bite

Swimming in the duck pond one day he ran out of luck
He was ambushed by the Death Feather gang and stabbed by another duck

That day he may have died a violent death but his duck spirit lives on
No longer an evil one but one that’s full of fun

So raise your glass and give a cheer for party duck is here
For good times and fun shall be had whenever he is near

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

I was commissioned to paint a turtle and a weasel for a birthday present for Tom. This is what I painted.

An Ode to Turtle Tom and Dana Weasel

A turtle and a weasel that’s what I saw
Running from the club through the back door

What mischief they made I do not know
But the fellas chasing them were ready to go

Tom the turtle was a music dude
Gigging every night and playing for his food

A weasel called Dana was his manager chick
She called the shots and was very slick

While Tom was jamming Dana was always hustling
She would sniff out a card game and muscle her way in

Her methods were suss but she always won
And more often than not they’d leave on the run

A regular Bonnie and Clyde is what they were
And an interesting couple they made, him and her

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

Captain Laramie Lion

An Ode to Captain Laramie Lion

Captain Laramie the Lion
Never felt at peace
On the plains of Africa
As much as the seas

The odd one out
He favoured the fish
Over the buffalo
As his favourite dish

His journey began
The day he was caught
By illegal poachers
From Somewhere up north

Locked in a cage
And put upon a ship
Laramie picked the lock
And gave them the slip

He ate every man
Upon that boat
And became the captain
And wore the captain’s coat

When he reached a port
He assembled a crew
A motley bunch
Drunk from too much brew

From that day forward
Laramie rode the waves with ease
No longer king of the jungle
He was now king of the seas
