This is a commissioned piece I was asked to do in B&W, but the subject matter was up to me.

Playtime at the Costmores.

Hand cut pine with acrylic & wall paint. Something old, something new, nothing borrowed with a bit of blue.

The painting is framed and on the wall. I’d swear it’s haunted. To see the full piece, detail shots and the frame (oh yes the frame is important)

Since I’ve finished the painting, I’ve really gotten back into working on the alien. I bought this new plaster cast that is almost like sculpting clay. It’s amazing, now I can add the detail that I’ve always wanted to. The weight of this thing is getting crazy, so i’ve also been reinforcing the structure. One step ahead, two steps behind.

The ‘helpless’ painting is also now being framed. I can’t wait to post the final. I found a frame that totally suits the painting in style and colour. It’s almost like christmas, I can’t wait any longer.

It’s finally done!

I have to say it feels amazing to have completed this piece. Once it’s dry, I’ll frame it and showcase the full oil painting on intwine design.

I just finished a song with a bunch of friends who love making music as much as I do. The song is called ‘Fuck Your Drama’, Chris Whyte made the beat… Thanks Chris. This song also features guest appearances by Malcolm Gilderdale (aka EXPENSIVE), Noel Calalang (aka HALF-LOONIE) and me. You can listen to it here.

there’s something about getting your hands dirty.

This is a music compilation I put together featuring various bands I’m in with a bunch of friends. We do this for fun, I record and produce all the songs. If you go here you can download the compilation for free. There are 22 songs, from various genres of music, including acoustic, hip hop, metal, rock, pop and more. The download also includes a printable version of the cd cover, and low res artwork for all the bands that are featured on the compilation. Perfect for your mp3 player of choice and itunes. Thanks to Telma Costa for creating the promo video on intwine design. And of course everyone involved in the creation of the music.
