Larger Than (my present) Life

The last few months have brought a few opportunities to literally expand my boundaries. Not pants just paintings thank goodness.

Head in the Hole board for The Heads Hotel

Murals aren’t something I’ve been drawn to (haha) until this year.  I did a few months work with a local chalk artist, which dumped me in the deep end with the speed/size ratio. These murals aren’t related to any of that particular work, it’s just that the offers came at the right time for me to take them on with a bit more confidence 😉

 

I’ll have a few more pics of this job in a few weeks – Liam and I made a whole lotta signage for The Heads Hotel which included this head-in-the-hole board. There’s a first time for everything!
It was a big job with a tight deadline so massive thanks to Liam for helping me out with this one.

My good friend Carrie felt the need to brighten her wall in the back garden. She’d seen some wall art in South Brisbane that she liked the look of and wanted to replicate it, so we spent New Year with a few drinks, a few paint brushes and lots of smiles 😀
We’re still not finished so these count as progress shots. They’re also a little dark – we only stopped when we couldn’t see anymore!

Carrie has done a little more work to the flowers since our New Years Eve session. As soon as it’s finished I’ll be posting the final shots. I’m dead excited to see it completed 😀

And last but certainly not least, my bro and I worked together on this cowgirl mural for the upstairs bar at Johnny Ringo’s in Brisbane.
Again, this was part of a bigger job so I’ll be sharing pics of the chalk boards alongside the
signage in NSW.

The pic had already been chosen (we didn’t design it) so it was just a matter of getting it up on the wall. I got a nice storyline of progress shots for this one 😉 Most of this was spray paint and stencil rather than all brushwork, although the details were painted in by hand.
