Shag's Movie

Not a movie about shagging - but a movie about the artist, Shag. So far I have no idea if the movie "The Sophisticated Misfit" will ever be released on DVD or whether the Outre Gallery will even stock it if it does... but one can only hope.

The eyes have it...

Only a tinsee winsee snippet if Tamra's artwork:

It all comes together once colour is added and all the tonal "airbrushing".

Congratulations to "The Number Plate Man"

Congrats to my husband, now known as "The Number Plate Man" (on radio's 3AW), given the recent story about the VW signature plates he purchased and VicRoads.

Yesterday was an amazing day, with 3 television channels visiting to interview him, listening to updates via radio and the news - and again today with follow ups on the story.

I think it's pretty cool though, that the area I had set up in my gallery to start video blogging paper craft projects was used as the interviewing area, and now that I've seen it on tele I know that it will look good for when I begin my video recordings ;o)

And I was also chuffed to hear compliments on my photography up on the wall by channel 10's cameraman and channel 9's cameraman!

Lost in the 50's

We went to visit Castelmaine & Daylesford over the Easter long weekend and saw some pretty neat-o things.

Castlemaine is known as the "Hot Rod Capital of Australia" and we did see some nice vehicles around town. Unfortunately the "Rod Shop" was closed so we'll have to pop in again another time. There was an awesome antique store there as well. XXXX Antiques have a section dedicated to motor vehicle collectibles called "Automobilia". There are items such as old tins, signs, pedal cars, petrol bowsers...

Daylesford was filled to the brim with day visitors such as ourselves but we managed to check out what we wanted quite easily. There's a store in the main street called "Lost in the 50's" and oh-my, I loved this store. I asked about having my artwork up for sale within it and I'll to contact the owner about that again as he wasn't in.

I bought myself a little badge with cherries on it and a very cool "Valiant" badge - for my passion of Pacers. The Valiant badge was made like a real chrome car badge but a mini version. Will take pics once a charge up the 'ol batteries.

My artwork was spotted at the Iceberg bar and as a result, I was contacted by Tamra regarding a custom job!

Rove's back

In case you've been living under a rock - Rove's back on tele. This makes me happy, 'coz he's a funny fella.

He even inspired this once upon a time:

Used to be in Croft Alley in the city (Melbourne) but as is the case with all stencil art, it has a limited lifetime in public view.
