YES....finally I got to see my 'Black Widow' on Page. 61 in *Midnight Echo Magazine* which has now been printed and release to the public...it is available to purchase for US$3.50 as a PDF download. I am all set to read the blood curling stories inside this magazine now, and if anyone is into Horror and Macabre writing and art, this is definitelly one of the best magazines on the market. Woo-Hoo - I can't believe I'm in print :)

Well....what can I say, but that it was absolute madness with the amount of people that were there last night...these pics were taken after the winners were announced (not me by the way) and half of the people were leaving for some air out side, and that gave me enough space to actually put my hand out and take the pics. I lost my two teenage kids within 5min. in the crowed, and waited 30min. before I could even enter the main gallery room.
ohhh...and a word of warning, when you hear that it is an open call and no pre-selection, the nude and pornographic art will be EVERYWHERE- my 16 year old son finally enjoyed a gallery show - he didn't once ask "when's this finish' - I actually had to call their mobile numbers to ask where the hell they were in the gallery and to get their asses outside and meet me as I was finally ready to leave, and already planning a bottle of red to hit at home and cleanse my self of all the energy of all those people off me. I don't dael well with crowded places, and being rubbed and touched by hundreds of people-ughhhh yuckeeeee!!!
One thing that I found very sad and disappointing is that out of 4 big rooms, crowded with over 2500 works, there was only 4 red dots that I noticed...I guess art is still a luxury people are not ready to spend on.
The bottom pic has a red square that shows two of my works on the wall, the third is covered by the head of that man in front. All in all, another art experience I will not forget any time soon :) Cheers !!!!

As you all know, just a quick reminder that the 'Openning Night' for Small Works 09 is this Friday 26th of June, 2009, and it is at Brunswick Street Gallery, 322 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. This time I will sneak a few photos of the night and will post them up on Saturday. I expect it to be a great night and I'm getting excited about it now. There is over 200 artists participating and there will be over 2000 works on display from contemporary to traditional. I will keep you all posted & the three works above are my entries ;)
Once again, Midnight Echo Magazine will be publishing this work -
"IN SEARCH OF GREEN HORIZON" in their September Issue, and
there is a chance that it might make FRONT COVER - but all that is to be confirmed closer to the publishing date...and I will be here to let you know of the outcome!!!
My Black Widow painting has been published by this magazine already as most of you might know already, and the release of that issue is 1st July, so I will be posting that up as soon as I receive my copy of the magazine.
I have been busy with work as you all know so I havn't been blogging much, but I did keep up with everyone else's blogs and commented when I could. I have also been busy with some new works, at this stage its all preparation, composition of works and theme that I have been working on, but by July I should have some new works to show you ;)
