During hanging photo by Jemimah Clegg
This was David Lee Pereira and I, 2 days before opening night.  Jemimah Clegg wanted to do an article about us and about the exhibition so she caught up with us while we were running around mad trying to figure out the hanging.  The exhibition was held at Pepper Cafe and should be up for a month!

To find out more about the exhibition, check out this article by Matto Lucas.

I had an amazing opening night.  I was actually quite worried.  This is my first joint exhibition and the first time I exhibited that wasn't part of a large group.  Not a whole lot of room to hide when there's only two artists.  Everyone said they had a great night and feedback for the work David and I did was incredibly positive.  A stranger came to approach me (neither a friend of mine or Dave's) just to thank me for putting up my work and that he loved it.  I was very touched.  Another stranger even gave Dave and I sunflowers to celebrate the opening.  I sold on opening night too which is amazing!  I am extremely happy with the results.  I would like to do more exhibitions, commission jobs and illustration jobs this year.  I would certainly like to exhibit with Dave again as well!

The staff of Peppers were incredible and I would love to do another show using the venue again.  They were very organized, helpful and everyone had a fantastic night! Was certainly amazing!!! They were also very accommodating with Dave and I hanging till late.  In the meantime, make sure to visit them for lunch and breakfasts!  They are also open till 6pm on Thursdays and Fridays, check them out for drinks!

Some journal entries!

Hi, hi!  How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri. I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more.  Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
