Joshua The Jolly Elephant – Video

This is a time lapse video of me creating Joshua the Jolly Elephant.

I also recite a poem about Joshua which I composed whilst staying in the African Jungle with a herd of African Elephants called the Big Grey Crew.

They are a lively bunch.

An Ode to Dracula Darrell

Dracula Darrell comes from a family
Of bloodsucking monsters ever so scary

He has the skill of shooting beams of energy
Outta his hands and into his enemy

These radiactive lasers, so mutant and deadly
Will vaporize anybody who appears unfriendly

A zap zap here and a zap zap there
My laser beams are gunna give you a scare

That’s what he sings when he’s zapping away
And his smile so deranged stays around all day

Shark

Here’s a little drawing of a shark i did. He is made up of a few different kinds of patterns.
Here is a poem about sharks in acrostic style.

Sharks are the kings of the sea.
Huge.Sharks can get pretty huge. A case in point is the 470kg, 3.8 metre tiger shark which was caught 500 metres off Main beach, Gold Coast in Queensland on Thursday 13 October 2011.
Awesome predators. They are heaps good at eating stuff. They are king of the food chain in the ocean. They are like the lions of the sea.
Running is not what sharks are good at. They are better at swimming. A Mako shark can swim 96 kilometres per hour.
Kebabs. Sharks like to eat kebabs, and people.
Swell shark, which lives in New Zealand barks like a dog. Woof woof!

See you next time.

Cosmic Egg Head Man

Here is my latest art for your viewing pleasure.

Here is a poem I wrote inspired by the Cosmic Egg Head Man:

The boundaries of the mind
Can translate to the face
Take care what you think
Everything finds its place

Here is another little poem:

The cold winds of space
Is where you’ll see the face
Of the cosmic egghead man
And his master race

Skull Mania

Hey hey

I drew a skull and then waved my wand and multiplied it in many beautiful colours and inversions
This is the resultant creation
Skulls are cool

Eyes are cool

I drew some creatures with many eyes to thee
What you do they shall see
There’s an eagle, a feline and a man as well
There is no fish or a dog or bell

Owl

This is a picture i painted of an owl. When Pearl sees it she says ‘toot toot’.
I wrote a poem from the perspective of the owl.

I’m an owl, in the darkness i prowl
I love to eat meat, that’s my kind of feast
When i grab some mice they usually die of fright
When i see a mouse that’s when i pounce
My eyes are lazy but my neck is crazy
It turns 270 degrees up in them trees
When i hang with my buddies people call us a study

The end

A group of owls is also called a parliament or a wisdom. I thought that was interesting but found it too hard to incorporate into the poem. If you can rhyme that little tidbit drop me a line and ill add it into the poem.

Mr Monster man hanged from the cloud and got zapped in the noggin!

This is a drawing i did of Mr Monster man hanging from a cloud but the cloud got really angry (as you can see from his eyes which are tilted inwards) and decided to zap him on the noggin with some high voltage electricity. Now this really stung Mr Monster man and you can see he is not really having much fun in this instance but he is determined to hold on so he didn’t let go. Maybe he was hitching a ride somewhere on the cloud and floated up to the currents high in the atmosphere and if he let go he would fall to the ground with a great big thud and maybe sprain his ankle. Pearl drew the little monster man in the corner. She has some talent.

Mr Shooting Starman

This is Mr Shooting Starman I drew for our film clip for the song Shooting Star which Anna is making.

Here’s a link to the song if you want to download or listen to it. 

I like the look of him because he has a crazy gleam in his eye and has a bow tie and curly shoes. There’s not enough curly shoes out there for my liking. The bow tie gives him a formal look while the baseball cap (he wears backwards to give him some street cred) adds a casual juxtaposition to his whole look. He brings it all together by ensuring his accessories are all a matching red colour. You will also notice he has black and white stripped socks. These socks along with the curly shoes you might recognize from the major motion picture titled ‘The Wizard of Oz’. In the movie they made you think it was the Wicked Witch of the West which got squashed by the flying house after the tornado. It was actually Mr Shooting Starman which got caught up in the storm and squashed. He had a lengthy stay in hospital and 2 years of gruelling re-hab before he could take to the skies again. He has never been happier, which you can see by the big smile on his happy face. I applaud you Mr Shooting Star for overcoming your obstacles and living your dream!
