The book "Looking Down Under - Contemporary Artists from Australia" arrived by courier today and it looks superb.
It's humbling to have my painting "Girl with Lip Ring" included alongside the works of many Oz artists I admire including Reg Mombassa, Euan Macleod, Anna Caione, Sam Leach, Deidre But-Husaim, Nona Burden, Jason Benjamin, Daryl Austin and Stormie Mills to name a few.

Apart from getting my age wrong in the CV section, I'm very happy to have been selected in this Luciano Benetton Collection, which I suspect will be exhibited in Australia at some stage.
Featuring Autumn Rain by Ahmad Jamal

What a thrill to hear that fellow South Ozzer 'Tkay Maidza' has just been nominated for the 2016 BET Awards in the US (Black Entertainment Television - as a finalist in 'Best New International Act’).
I illustrated Tkay last year, along with documenting the process on my website blog. She's hip hop pocket dynamite.. and it is so heartening to hear the world is catching up.

Some recent mark making on canvas, paper or screen. Getting a few prints organised too which is kind of fun and time consuming. All in all I'm enjoying a creative spike at the moment. life is good.
