T Rex Work in Progress

Grant Hunter - the Imperial Wizard of the Nancy Vandal Fruity Youth Legion of Tomorrow: Wyong Shire Zone - recently invited me to submit something to a forthcoming exhibition at the recently opened Newcastle Arthive Gallery.

The exhibition is a group show called TYRANNOSAURUS REX
which has prompted me to explore the subject of 70s glam superstar Marc Bolan punching a dinosaur. Grant is a pleasing opponent of art wank so I shall hopefully avoid having to provide too much in the way of message, intent or thematic purpose. However if pressed I'd say the finished work accurately conveys my feelings that Marc Bolan is way cool - as is the notion of punching a dinosaur.

Here's a little bit of progress....

Wall To Wall Opening

Some of my stuff appeared in the "Wall to Wall" exhibition - a collection or rock poster and flyer artwork put together by ex-Lawnsmell legend Glenno Smith. The exhibition features a stack of great underground artists including Ben Brown, Giles, Link Meanie, Ray Ahn, Oxx, Glenno himself and heaps more. The artist bios were a great read and a massive affirmation of the power and popularity of the artline pen.
