Blender Studio. ADi's new home, the coolest place in Melbourne for an artist...
Look closely, this is one of the few chances to preview work for the new show "Beautiful Strange" I will be keeping the works under wraps until the opening.

The piece is coming along nicely now and really gaining momentum, I would suspect it would be up to approximately 30+ hours of work so far. The piece is on BFK Rives 280gsm and is 30" x 22.5", so quite a large scale illustration for the complexity. There will be two of this size and the study is completed for the second which will be just as amazing.

This is an acrylic piece on artboard I have submitted for a show in the US, a tribute to Studio Ghibli. It is a representation of Howls Moving Castle except this is a Moving Psycomanteum, futuristic style.

The egg as a nest,
A fortune it holds,
The death of a rose,
And nobody knows.
Tears fall upon a ground,
Wanting only of their nourishment,
The ground will swell with joy,
Knowing in death all is well.
Another realisation has come to me upon working on the initial study for this piece regarding the universe, these matters are always difficult to convey with words but I will try.
I envisioned death in absolute clarity, through this is a path of true beauty and light is attained, for our longing of love and loss is the deep emotion we possess that connects us with spirit which is god. Without this hurt we are non existent as a soul. This is the connection we have from before the fall, with purity. From this can be deciphered another language, that of the soul, for we talk in words that can never express our truth and holiness yet the feeling a glance from an individual we do not know can portray and connect like no words can, whether good or bad. These feelings take hold in a deeper, different place. I think this may be the sacred vibration. This being the case we are constantly in touch with this language yet we do not acknowledge it enough. These moments seem to only be grasped when we least expect it, kind of a self meditative state we naturally fall into, whether knowingly or unknowingly. This I foresee is the language of the new age, the age of aquarius.

Scorpio with the sting, these were part of a series of 12 paintings of the Zodiac for the Intergalactic Alchemy exhibition. They turned out real nice with a real alien feel to them. All done with spray enamel as a base touched up with acrylic fluorescents by brush full of energy and vitality just like the universe that created them.
Here is a ripper from the past, circa 85 or 86, panels by Key, Dime & Anton (in order from left to right), done early morning Mothers Day by some of the old Elwood crew. Sandy was the yard and they only ran once to the buffing yards. This was the norm back in the good old days and many a fine panel was never seen. I will endeavor to add a few old school pieces that will bring back fond memories for the real old school dudes getting around back in the day when you could spend all night in a yard.
