September has been and gone and again I felt like I barely stood still.
I was fortunate enough to brush up on my old animation skills and made a cool little video for an awesome organisation called ClimateClever. They do a lot of work with kids in schools with the aim of creating thoughtful, conscientious ambassadors for reducing our impact on the planet. I got to make a cool Super Hero girl and made her fly!
I was back at Fiona Stanley Hospital again to work on a project for CORD. I was asked to design artwork and paint it onto a bunch of concrete benches to brighten up the courtyard in the Spinal Injury Unit. Unfortunately (for me) I used the wrong primer and all the paint that I’d lovingly applied peeled off after a week! I’ll be going back in December to repaint using the correct primer. It was an expensive and time consuming lesson but one that I have now learned from.
In other news I’ve been going to see my good buddy Painless Luke Robinson at Beyond the Illusion in Secret Harbour. Recent additions to my skin (sorry Mum!) include two David Shigley skulls, a Saturday Jazz worm and a Space Dolphin. If you want to get some cool ink then Painless is the man to see!
Myself and Betty have done a couple of sight visits to a park in Baldivis which is going to be the location of our first major public art job as a team. It was hot, sunny and sandy but we got to mark out where our sculptures would go. All the designs have now been approved so next step is fabrication, roll on October...
