He has a modern Australiana theme to his pieces, bringing artist inspiration such as Pollock and Cristo into small wearable items.
The pieces look absolutely up to date despite being produced over 15 years ago.
I really love the little Cristo brooch, to me it's a bit jokey, but that's what's charming about it since I'm probably not the biggest fan of Cristo's work. Seeing his epic work miniaturised is something that gives me a bit of satisfaction haha, (if you're not familiar with it, Cristo loves to wrap up massive structures and landmarks in fabric and string).
Please also check out the Brett Whiteley website. It is the most amazing website for a most amazing, interesting artist.
For digital sweeties visit photoshop disasters, nice to see people making stupid mistakes for us to laugh at, I do love a bit of smug!

I HATE her chin
It's by no means finished, I'm thinking of scrapping it and starting again. I don't like her face at all, but I'll try work it. I want to see what I'm learning.
Please watch this vid. I saw a demo the creators did of how this game works a while ago... I really really really want to give it a go

EMPTY has been sitting on the shelves at work for few weeks, every other day i walk past and it yells at me to pick it up.
Today I did and colour me impressed.
I was really pleased to see a decent sized article about Stunt
Kid (Jason Levesque) who's livejournal I've been lurking for a while now.
Every image looks amazing and the articles are short but succinct.
Best thing about it? It's Australian, and CHEAP! ($14.95AU)
