Life Goat, pencil, A3

Happy New Year from the Life Goat! And many thanks to everyone who has supported my publications, ramblings and exhibitions throughout 2016, commented via this blog, offered advice or just borrowed a book. Wishing you all the right balance of inspiration, doubt and perserverence for 2017: let's all step into the fray with a rational heart, listening with our eyes and fighting every shadow with a well-sharpened pencil.

Whisper: an exhibition in Ballarat, Victoria

Highway crossing, Colac, oil 20 x 15cm


I will be part of a group show in Ballarat from January 18 until February 26 at The Lost Ones Gallery (14 Camp Street, Ballarat Central, Victoria. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm.) Fellow painters Nick Dridan and Harley Manifold (with whom I shared a studio for a couple of years) have a shared interest in solitary objects and figures in vast landscapes; the title of the show is Whisper. I will contribute about 50 small oil paintings of the kind often posted on this blog (as above), and very much looking forward to hanging alongside Nick and Harley. More info about it here:

Never give your keys to a stranger, from Rules of Summer, 2013

Three of my larger format prints are now available through my local Brunswick supplier of pop-surrealism, beinArt Gallery, at Sparta Place in Brunswick. You can check them out here, or even better, pop in to examine all other weirdness. A broader selection of other prints continue to be available through Books Illustrated, with a couple of recent additions.
