Afrtwin and Whitby High getting things done

Every three years i get a call from British school to say they coming to Cape Town with a number of there students . They will lay out there agenda and we will start the process for them leaving a mark in a under priverlaged school in Cape Town. This year that benefactor was Makize Secondary School in Guguleto .

Once they arrive I meet with the students and teachers, we go over there designs and discuss the layout and all that is needed and when. We trim and add to the design and set out the next few days with paint brush in hand to make it all happen.

The English roses struggle under our blazing African sun -drink lots of water , but nothing keeps them back from making there mark. They also take part in lessons at the school, learn about the culture and share there learning experience from there school. They also take in many beautiful beaches and sites in Cape Town. This all is done in a week.

The student work at collecting there own funds for the trip . I think they take away alot and leave alot in the process. Think that is the greatest lesson of all. Dont always be the receiver but be the giver also.

It is great to get stuff but it is even better to give stuff.

This year they gave a truck shop that will sell wholesome healthy foods to the children. The children eat alot of unhealthy cheap processed food that is not good for body or mind. Hopefully this container will make a difference .

BOTTLE CAP PATHWAY

So what kinda fun did i get to do , well i placed a few thousand bottle caps in a mosaic sea theme format for Save our Seas in Kalk Bay South Africa.

THREE STORY DOG KENNEL

So what do you do when you dont have four kids you need to clothe , feed educate and entertain but rather four beautiful dogs. You take all take extra cash you have that you would have spent on your kids and you spend it on your dogs. That is what my one friend dig when she hired my other very talented carpenter friend to build her a three storey kennel for her dogs. Now i dont know if you had a play house as i child the closes i came is when mom bought a new deep freezer ,and i got the cut out a door and windows with a kitchen knife out of the box creating my own play house -that is until the rain washed it away. Yes that was the extent of my play house but i cant say i was never fed or clothed as a child. But seeing his kennel made me feel deprived as a child, i know my dogs would feel deprived if they saw it. Beutifully hand crafted home with spacious living space and sunny deck area .....all the kids and pooches out there eat your heart out.

I recently partnered with a golf program for children with disabilities. This is an amazing program that caters to nearly a 1000 children spread all over South Africa. What is does is recognize that children with disabilities will most likely never get a change to be on a golf course or play the sport , so they bring the sport of golf to the children. So how do they do that , they get a venue in the school and that were i get to play a role , a room is painted out like a golf course with a host of funny animals to make it fun for the children . They are taught the gentlemen's game rules like respect one another, be honest eg "about your score" , have integrity... they many other aspects of the game . They do target practice this all helps the children with co ordination. The kids love it , all the children can participate no matter the disability . Its a great priverlage to be part of this project ,it is very heart warming to see them laugh, i am so humbled as a able bodied person that can move without restraint to see these children laughter, because i wonder they have all the reason to be without it .But there dissabiltity doesnt disable there ability to laugh and have fun.

Dolphin mural
Location : Hospital Cape Town

Time Taken :3 days

If I think about 2015 it will be the year of the fish , I have for some strange reason done alot of sharks , sealife, seals and dolphin murals this year.

This mural is in a new children's ward that has some very expensive and impressive equipment in it . Children can send quite a while been examined by this machine , to be honest I not quite sure what I can say about this machine or not so I choose to keep info to minimal. I mean the last thing I would want is a engeneer calling me out ,on this fact and that fact.

The lady that heads up this department wanted dolphins and colourful coral mural, she also told as a diver that you can hear the coral , they give off a sound . I didn't know that .

Car Mural
Location :Cape Town



Time Taken :3 days

In the eight years I have painted wall murals I have never had the change to paint a car. I have collected images of possible cars that I could or would like to paint with hope that one day I would try my hand at it .

That moment came when meeting with my latest clients, they decided a fast and furious car is what they wanted for there sons room. Finally I got to email my collection of cars to my clients .

Would it surpise you to know I had no idea what any of the cars make were . So when my client responded (the husband of course)" thanks I like the Orange Dodge viper ', I was like 'that's a Dodge viper!' I like the image of the cars for there colour , there design but that is about as far as it goes .

Speed , from 0/100 and info like that is way over my head ,I mean I drive a Toyota- I know that much, and I learnt it takes a 155/13 tyre and the 13 stands for inch . But I am clueless to what bar the trye must be pumped up to.

Think this possibly will be the closest I will get to a Dodge viper , and that might be a good thing ,neverless quite a pretty car.
