Another busy week, and while nothing's getting finished, things are definitely progressing. These are some images of my first real sculpture project. It's titled Squid in a box and is based on one of my lino's from last year of the same title. It's a little complicated and involves a cambered plywood cube inside a wooden crate with this relief sculpture of a squid spilling out. There's a wait now as clay dries, is fired then glazed. Will post more as it nears completion.
Last Friday was the announcement of the Marie Ellis Prize at Jugglers Art space and congratulations must go to Peter Kozak for his drawing "Absorb". A really well deserved win.
Saturday Night was the bi-annual costume dinner dance at out daughters school. A fundraising event involving a lot of booze and 300 grown ups in fancy dress let out for the night without their kids. Even Campbell Newman the State Premier was there, though by all accounts he doesn't much care for the arts so we'll leave that there. I donated a framed print of one of my water tower lino's for the silent auction which went for a good price so I'm really thrilled about that.
Saturday was also my last Suibokuga class at the Budo Kai Kan. I'll post images of that work later.
I'm also working on this pen and ink drawing of a school of tuna. It's taking forever.
Clicked on BNEART tonight and saw one of my drawings with a link to my website under the title FEATURE ARTIST. What a totally surreal moment!
