Media Arts Showcase

There is a bunch of great talent on show at present for the 2012 Media Arts Annual Showcase! see here for more info. The exhibits are open to the public from 29th Nov to the 3rd December so plenty of time to pop on by for a look see!

The Graphic Design students even have there own online website - like an online exhibition. Check it out here. It was a great privilege to teach illustration at Wintec this semester with Mark Liu and Dale Sattler. All the very best to those second year students heading off for their final year and the third years off into the big wide world!

Spark 2012 - Talk & Illustration Workshop

It was great fun to speak at Spark 2012 yesterday as part of the graduate panel along with the likes of Michelle Savill and Adam Smith. Thanks to all who came along to listen to my very nervous but thankfully smooth talk on my background since leaving Wintec.

Afterwards I got to host an illustration work shop with some awesome creative people. We spent our time creating islands similar to my Isles Series and chatting about illustration.  Thanks to all who came - hope you all had fun!

Thanks also to Kat Cox, Mark Liu and Wintec for inviting me to be a part of Spark! Only one more day to go now of excellent speakers here.

Seen and Heard

The 'Out There' exhibition opening at RAMP gallery was great! - thanks to all those who stopped by to say hello. If you haven't seen it yet the show is on till the 10th of August. There are a range of different works from past graduates of Mediarts,Wintec. My friend Gary Venn has some awesome giclee prints and Lynda Wilson had a great take on the recent royal wedding hat wear! Other friends/artists included Hannah Cleland's delightful small hairy house,  Ani Fourie whymiscal painting style, and Jane Siddall's beautiful embroidery works - these are just a few of the great works and artists on show. Do check it out!

Also on at present is an outdoor exhibition at the Waikato Museum called 'Collected Fictions' - which my fellow artist Lynda Wilson took part in - her work called 'Bandits' I think is one of my favourites to date! The minature artworks are displayed in what reminds me of a rabbit hutch structure with separate compartments to view each work. Totally worth a look through and is on display till the 21 August 2011.

Meanwhile lots going on at the moment for me with packing & moving house - planning the building of a new one, also heading back over the seas in a few weeks time so working on multiple tasks to complete before we leave.

This is a small spot illustration i made during the chaos of moving house..
