Another Astro

Well, the last Astroboy was so much fun to draw that I had to do another one, and what self-respecting Astroboy fan can resist a pic with those arse-cannons ablazing.

Banana A-Peel prints

The other week, a friend at work invited a few of us to participate in an Art Auction she was also involved in to help raise funds for victims of the Queensland and Victorians floods of recent weeks. It's called the "Banana A-Peel" and opens tomorrow Feb 24 at the Old Bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Whilst I didn't have time to create anything new for the auction, I suggested a couple of pieces that I'd put up here on the ol' blog. I'd also never had a print done of any of my artwork before, so a little nervously I sent these two images off the print unsure of what I was going to get back.
Well, the result was fabulous...
The photo doesn't really do it justice, so you'll just have to take my word for it, or come along to the auction. They're printed 10x8 on 310gsm fine art stock.
And here they are hand-signed, numbered and framed-
Come along and support a great cause.

Astroboy week

A former workmate of mine, Tim declared the other day that it was Astroboy week and invited all of his friends to contribute.
I used to love watching this show as a kid.
Here's my effort...

This is an old pic, it's actually half of the original drawing that featured both of my dogs- two Pomeranians. I had been considering reworking it for this particular occasion, but haven't gotten around to it.
Anyway, I lost this one to kidney failure last month. It came on very quickly and was quite a shock despite him being 14 and a half. It was a very sad time around our house, and I still can't believe he's gone-I keep looking into the back yard expecting to see him trotting about or lying in one of his favourite spots. He was a cheeky bugger and was with me through some bad times, good times and numerous adventures; I'm thankful for the 14 and a half wonderful years of companionship he gave me.
