I LIKE TO ROCK

So earlier this year I spied a hand painted rock over at Jo Tito’s site.  I thought it was really mesmerising and the colours were really choice too.  So I asked Jo how much they were and she suggested we trade art.

I like trading art.  Trading is good.

And finally, yes, FINALLY I finished a little something to trade in return.

So, because this site is all about (fist) pumping out the pictures, here’s some of the piece I made and Jo’s Perfect Rock.

They were taken with my phone, using my favourite gadget.  The first one gives a reasonable shot of the shed and all the other things I got going on.

The small collage I made was done using an old frame, clothes dye and varnish.  The collage itself was constructed from some red envelopes I picked up at Wah Lees while in Auckland last.  And the background is filled with Aotearoa 666 stamps and a phrase in te reo Māori.

The last one shows my rock in my hot little hands. I love her! She’s sitting in an eastern pointing window sill, she can catch plenty of sun there in the mornings.

 

Rockin’! 😀

 

WHAT YOU NEED IS SOME HANKY ACTION, BABY

Hank Von Helvete is the lead singer of Norwegian band Turbonegro.   I like drawing pictures of him and using them for my Turbojugend website.  These pictures show a progression from ‘Old Hank’ (2003) to ‘New Hank’ (i.e when I got better at digital illustration in 2008 – now I just need to focus on being faster!)

This illustration ended up as the centre fold for Black Chrome‘s Homorockclub CD, and as well as the mast head for the u666 site.

Here’s some Hanky Action, for you Zillion Dollar Sadists
