The Drawgasmic show in Missouri USA looked like it was amazing…

If you were to ask, I’d tell you that one of my greatest fears is being on TV in the background of one of those tabloid news stories. You know the ones where all you see is a slow-motion close-up of a cellulitey bum walking away. Or worse, a zoomed in slow-mo shot of someone eating a hamburger, beetroot and sauce oozing out the side.
So I broke into a little sweat when a friend left a message on our answering machine the other night saying he’d seen me on TV. It was a news program, but a reputable one, and I was in the background, but thankfully not doing anything embarrassing.
The story, on the 7.30 Report, was about the success of Frankie Magazine, with lots of footage of the Finders Keepers Market. So my 3 seconds of fame was proudly riding on the coat-tails of Frankie Mag. And what a fine coat it is!
You can watch it here for the next few days on the 7:30 Report, from Tuesday 8th June (fast forward to just before the 25th minute).
I have works in a show, Extempore, at Open Studio; a graffiti based gallery. Each artist was encouraged to paint the walls before hanging the show over the top. So I got to try out some spray paint!
The Extempore show will be on display for the next two weeks at:
2/25 Vernon St,
Thank-you to Finders Keepers (again) for featuring me on their website. Read the full interview here.
This weekend we attended to the wedding of some friends. The groom is a cartoonist and the wedding was held in a gallery. Instead of wedding gifts they asked each guest to create a cartoon or illustration to hang in the gallery for their wedding.
The gallery, in turn, is holding an exhibition of them all, not just for one night, but for the next few weeks. There were over 60 works, and they were amazing!

During the hustle and bustle of the Finders Keepers Market, Alex English from Side Street Sydney sat and interviewed me.
The article is really well written and rather complimentary I must say. Thank-you Alex!
(Mind you, although I WISH I had a photographic memory, sadly this is not the case.)
