I have been working on a mural for a local dental surgery over the past couple of weeks. I had such fun & loved every minute of it. The client was amazing & let me do what I wanted, so I incorporated humourous dental scenes & other relevant images to the practice. The mural was 19.5m x 5.2m, a rather large canvas. I did everything freehand. I can't wait to do another mural.

I don't paint politicians that often, but I thought I would have a crack at our Prime Minister Tony Abbott. To me Tony appears a little inflated & arrogant, so I drew him with a big pumped up chest (thanks Arnie) & Joe Hockey as the cigar smoking seagull pumping him with air. Lots of fun
This is a still from the recent animation work I did on the new Sara Storer clip. The amazing Duncan Toombs (5 times Golden Guitar winner) from the Filmery directed & created this clip. Canoe is a beautiful song & is a homage to John Williamson. Go check it out

I was fortunate enough to be invited onto Channel Ten's 'STUDIO 10' program to draw one of the panel. I drew the lovely Natarsha Belling, little did Ita, Jess & Joe know I had already painted caricatures of them. I had so much fun, you could not meet a nicer team of people.

I started painting Ian Thorpe months ago after I heard about his battle with depression. Like most Australians, I love Thorpie & was saddened to hear this. The background was originally blue tones & I kind of put in on the back burner, until now .... Ian Thorpe came out on Sunday night, I hope he finds the happiness he deserves now he can publically live his truth & finally get the media off his back about his sexuality. The rainbow after the rain.

I am so excited about winning the Bald Archy prize this year with my cheeky painting of Mitchell Johnson. Mitchell blitzed the English batting line with his fast bowling, so I thought Mitchell swinging on a HUGE cricket wrecking ball (a la Miley Cyrus) was quite appropriate. I had a heap of fun in Canberra on Friday & can't thank Peter Batey enough. Peter's tireless work, humour & passion make the BA's what they are & after 21 years the prize just keeps getting bigger & better. My friends Steve Panozzo & James Brennan also had some brilliant works hung. Go see this great exhibiton, it will be touring NSW & Victoria until the end of the year.

It's Bald Archy time again, the irreverent alternative to the Archibald prize that allows we artists to have a little fun. This year I have painted the amazing Tina Arena, Cate Blanchett & the Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson, who ripped the Poms batting line apart. The exhibition starts on Jan 31 at Watson Arts Centre in Canberra & will tour for the remainder of the year. Go see, I promise that you'll laugh like you've never laughed before at an exhibition. www.baldarchy.com.au
