Hi! So last week I received an email from a guy in Mexico. He was looking for a hummingbird image to tattoo on himself, his mom loves hummingbirds, and he came across my piece online and he's gotten it tattooed on his chest! I am pretty pleased that he did contact me, I would have been none the wiser otherwise. I felt shocked, maybe a bit of "hey, copyright!" but ultimately pretty darn flattered. That's my art on someone's skin now. Permanently. It also made me remember that I was working on a Mecha hummingbird series a couple of years ago and I really should do something about them. Like colour them digitally and sell online. I really should approach tattoo parlours and see if I can sell my work to them. That said, I don't have any tattoos myself, so I feel a bit like a fraud if I do that. What else has been happening..... I have so many projects I want to do and there just doesn't seem like enough time to do them all and I also want to do new

Hi all! How has everyone been? In case people didn't know, Melbourne Victoria Australia is currently in Stage 4 lockdown and has been since August 09. It's not due to lift until Sept 13...probably. It depends on the numbers. Stage 4 here means doing all shopping and exercise within a 5km radius, 8pm-5am curfew and no family or friends visiting or meeting up, unless they already live with you...oooh and all non-essential businesses were shut down.

Hi! How have things been? I've been fairly busy with work and updating my Redbubble Shop . The mermaid above was one of my personal favorites for this year. Combination of hand drawn and then edited in Photoshop. I think it turned out pretty well! I am slowly, slowly updating my shop. I'll get there eventually. Things feel a bit tense and somewhat depressing since Melbourne is at Stage 4 restrictions. It's a real bummer being in the State of Australia where the virus has gone out of control. I miss seeing my family, friends and visiting cafes and restaurants. I hate the current situation and am sure that am not the only one. It could be worse of course but I would rather not think about that. Otherwise, myself, my partner and my cat are all doing well.
