Neighbors: Mike Giant (Trailer) from Agency Charlie on Vimeo. Even Mike Giant uses a projector, take that haters.
I’m pretty busy for an unemployed person. At any given time in the past year I’ve had a to-do list of projects that has kept me drawing a minimum of twelve hours a day, some of them paid projects, some of them favours, and some of them just for the love of it. If there is one thing I’ve begun to miss about my old nine to five job, and there isn’t much, it is the forced...
Other than getting stuck in an elevator for an hour and then having a dispute with some racist Sydney cops, I did manage to have a productive Saturday screenprinting at Arcade Screenprinting (Screenhaus by day). Come to the Arcade T Shirt Screenprinting Party next week: Friday, December 10 at 8:00pm Arcade Screen Printing 17 Hutchinson St Marrickville Tickets $17 on the door or via...
I bought this A0 poster last year by Ari Marcopoulos called ‘The Chance Is Higher’. Since his work was all photocopied posters anyway I figured it was like I was getting one of his real works. It was probably one of the first pieces of art I actually loved so much I needed to have it in my life, but I lost it moving house. It was cheap, $25, and $50 shipping which was redonkeykong but...
Seriously saw this outfit on Oxford St today, I wanted to take a photo but he looked mean as hell.
I despise artists and creatives who obsess over keeping their techniques and resources a secret. I’ve always been about sharing my technique and my approach because I believe it isn’t about secret tricks but more about what someone could do with those tools. If sharing your ‘secret trick’ makes you redundant then all you ever had was that trick. It irritates me so much when...
Generation Why? Zadie Smith
Zadie Smith’s article on The Social Network and Facebook. These are the parts I underlined, put here so I can find them later: too hyped on the idea that he’s in heaven to notice he’s in hell. That a lot of social networking software explicitly encourages people to make weak, superficial connections with each other (as Malcolm Gladwell has recently argued1), and that this might not...
Even Batman had some sleep eventually, I need a new book to read. It’s going to be an insane end to an insane year.
Yo remember this guy??? It’s ENZYME yo!! I just remembered him because I was googling enzyme washing because I’m trying to figure out how to do it at home because all my black shirts are too black to wear with my black jeans without looking like a stage-hand so I need to fade them. This is why I never get any sleep! Because of stupid shit like this! Also I have that group show...
THE SOCIAL NETWORK
“A film of our times that captures the spirit of a generation that isn’t prepared to wait their turn or pay their dues and instead will make the opportunities for themselves or tear it away from the less ambitious.” - Thomas Caldwell of Cinema Autopsy My work has been influenced by Facebook, Myspace, and Livejournal for a while now. Online social networking is a medium that I...
KeithAndThomas x Advantage cycle x Avoid
via Mafia Hunt via http://people.zozo.jp/0229/diary This jacket is my reason for living right now. It pains me so that I know the exact shop in Tokyo to get it as well, I’ve been in it before, I even took a photo of a bin across the road from it because I liked the textures. I wish I could teleport to all these places in my memories and just teleport back. The more I think about...
I miss screenprinting, I’m planning on getting back into it with the help of some new friends! I spent four years perfecting the craft - for what?!? Bah!!!
“One Via Zero explores gangs and gang insignia. From scarification used by indigenous peoples across the world, through to more recent street subculture references, in particular the Australian underground music scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s…” I swear to god I tried to write something that coherent in an exhibition proposal once but totally failed. I’m shit at...
So today I spent two hours trying to figure out how to update my blog from my phone, it still doesn’t work. Then I started on a flyer while watching Clash Of The Titans which ended up being far too distracting and by the time I turned it off it was 11pm. Where did my day go?? Now I’m doing laundry and browsing font foundries just to relax, what is my life?!? I’ve been looking...

Here’s an interview I did on the show over at the Ride tumblr Here’s the facebook event I also somehow need to get to this show as well by Peter Burgess at Peloton Gallery in Chippendale.
Backyard Bill makes me miss the fuck out of New York. I miss being so cold I could actually co-ordinate layers, and staying in and watching marathons of Project Runway and Top Model during the writers strike. We still do all that now but it is never cold enough to wear a pea coat here. I’m back from Kuala Lumpur, I hung out with Munkao and We Are Mutants. It was good to get away from the...
Some awesome work happening from the two girls over at DI$COUNT
