I appeared on the tv show Studio 10 with Kurt and we painted a sweet bearded dude with the hosts of Studio 10 sitting in his beard. We also talked about the Innerwest Council’s Perfect Match program. It was grouse.

This is a timelapse video of when I painted King Kemono King of Beasts on a canvas in Tokyo.
The story of King Kemono King of Beasts
King Kemono King of Beasts was born Lazarus the Lion on the island of Delos in ancient Greece. He lived a humble life spending his days attending school and sailing his sailing boat and fishing for dinner.
When he grew up he took over the family cheese making business. The family cheese making business prospered under his stewardship but Lazarus grew restless and longed for adventure.
So one day he packed his sailing ship and sailed into the big blue yonder. He sailed the world for 3 years and had the best of times and the worst of times but mostly pretty good times.
When he arrived in Japan he fell in love with the place and the delish sushi on offer and decided to settle in Tokyo a bustling metropolis.
He purchased a minority shareholding in a local cheese importing company and through his contacts and expertise in the cheese industry he was able to grow it to be the number one cheese importing business in Japan. The Japanese people named him King Kemono King of Beasts (and cheese) and everyone had a good time.

An Ode to Wayne the Wolf
There was this wolf and his name was Wayne
He had the most magical colours and none were the same
He liked to prance on the rainbow while howling at the sun
Because as we know prancing on rainbows is the best of fun

These are some photos from the night of live painting on 12 September 2013 at Lo Fi for The Basel Royale Art Prize 2013.
I painted a viking with axes in his beard. I like him. I decided to paint in black and white as we had a strict time limit of 3 hours to complete the painting and colour would slow me down too much.
I painted alongside Irene Feleo, she is great at painting go check her art out.
This is a competition and the winner gets to go to the Art Basel Miami in December 5 – 8, 2013, with flights, accommodation and passes to events at the international arts festival. This convergence of key artistic figureheads is one of the art world’s most respected events with a mixture of historically important and contemporary works.
I painted a big gorilla wearing headphones at FBi radio’s 10th birthday party on 8 October 2013.
It was a splendid occasion and I enjoyed the experience immensely. There was good bands playing and all the people in the crowd had lovely outfits on. I enjoyed listening to Sarah Blasko and doing a jig when the Presets played. Midnight Juggernauts were also great.
These photos are a record of the day, you can see I am smiling in some of the photos and that proves that I was enjoying myself.
This Thursday night I will be painting live and competitively at Lo Fi. The winner out of 24 finalists is a sweet adventure to Miami.
It will be radical and the thing I am painting will have axes and horns and beards and lightning bolts in it so you know it will be good.
