Hey Melbourne. I was too ‘delicate’ to drop my #freeartfriday yesterday so I saved it for today. Find my new shutters and you’ll be very close @vs.gallery.melbourne #freeartfridaymelbourne #mydogsighs.

I’ve lived and breathed, sweated and toiled for the last five months in Readiness for this moment. I’m spent; an empty shell. But grinning. Everything is set up, the work (a hundred hand made pieces) is on the wall, the beer is stacked and we’ll be opening soon. As the show title suggests, I have divided the gallery into corners, with each area of my practise represented. They are My Dog Sighs, a strange pseudonym I hide behind, a persona I occupy. (Or some May say, occupies me). To offer it up to strangers is the strangest thing. Any artist or musician will know that feeling. It is as indescribable as it is terrifying; and oh so addictive. This show wouldn’t be happening if it wasn’t for the belief of @benfrostisdead and the incredible hard work and dedication of the @vs.gallery.melbourne team. (Jane, GT, Nixi and Ben). You Four. I salute you. And of course, at home, there are those I choose not to share but who are my crutch. Who’s love and support is my everything. (Sorry. Tired and emotional rant over.  Let’s drink beer and talk paint and party!!!)

I slipped off and hit a sweet little out of the way spot for @tinynonprofit in St Kilda today. When Elle sent me pics of the wall it seemed the perfect concrete canvas to have a go at rendering the lead image of the show on a wall. we’re also running the image as a small edition print run. It’ll be released initially in person at the opening with some being released at 9pm Melbourne time (midday uk time. 6am Chicago time). I’ve spammed the catalog details already but if you’ve missed them you can follow the link on my profile. @vs.gallery.melbourne #mydogsighs #streetartmelbourne #melbournestreetart #tinynonprofit #eyesonwalls #eyedrawing

Don’t you just love happy accidents. The original plan was to prime the raw canvas black. I’d payed it flat, poured the black paint on and started spreading it out with a wide brush. Very quickly I realised it had made the coolest, almost Japanese brush stroke, pattern and instantly stopped. From there it was just a matter of adding the subtlest eye (with gold iris pattern). It’s a sizeable 120x60cm and available for presale via the online catalog for £1900. ($3500 aud) (Link in my profile) @vs.gallery.melbourne
