There is a huge demand for skateboard decks at the moment with a handful of secret commissions completed in the last few days. This one however was an indulgence because I wanted to see how the rainbow feathers would work.
Battle Lines is where two artists compete against each other over 90 minutes only using black markers on a white board with the crowd and judge deciding who wins at the end. Usually I don't like adding a competitive element to art as it is completely subjective but I knew I'd be painting alongside my long time compadre Process Smith so I thought it would be fun to do. With no idea what I was going to draw I turned up at The Ostrich Inn with a bag full of Poscas. It was really well attended and had music from Mista Crowe and food from Resist Vegan Kitchen which made for a really busy and entertaining night.
Its not important who won the event :) however I was really pleased that my artwork sold on the night to a member of the crowd who had a Korpworm tattooed on his leg. Check the photos below to see.

Massive thanks go out to Prin for organising the event and Simon for letting us take over the venue. Hats off to Process for doing a great job on the other board and a final big thank you to everyone who turned up to support me, as always your support is greatly appreciated.
Next event is scheduled for 27th October, click here to confirm your attendance through Facebook.
Just framed and titled "Lonely" but not in a bad way. Sometimes a bit of time to yourself is exactly what you need. Become a patron to get a 38% discount on this artwork but be quick before it sells.
Worm army pieces take longer to finish so I'm looking forward to having more time in the future to do more like this.
My favourite thing about this artwork was SkeletonCardboards suggestion that some people are full of beans!!!
A dark and drippy background contrasts the silver moon that catches the light as you walk by. Lots of detail in the korpworm feathers and you can choose whatever colour eyes you want (as long as I have the colour)
Size: 300mm x 600mm
Media: Marker pen, spray paint and a liberal splash of Indian ink on wood.

While exploring concepts for an upcoming group show I decided to start work on a project I've had in the locker for a while. Essentially the idea is to have an army of Korpworms that are all seamlessly linked together over several canvases so where one canvas ends another begins, check out the video to see what I mean.
The first 5 pieces are ready to go, check them out here...
