I went for a walk on Good Friday to get out of my flat and to have a look round one of the oldest parts of Sydney, The Rocks. Here are some of the photos I took.
I recently made a post of the street artist Barry McGee and his work on the Thai Airways building in Sydney Australia. My understanding is that this piece of street art would be kept on the side of the Thai Airways building. But recently, it seems that this artwork had an expiry date. But that … Continue reading
Sculpture by The Sea celebrated fifteen years this year. Starting in 1997, this event in Sydney is not one to be missed. These are some of my favourite sculptures. The walk between Bondi and Bronte beach is beautiful and on the sunny day that I went, it was magical. Hope you like the photos I … Continue reading
With the sounds of the Rufous Whistler, the White-throated Tree Creeper, Scarlet Robin and other species that have long since retreated to less developed areas, these hanging empty cadges hang in Sydney’s Angel Place are a reminder of what life once inhabited here. This instillation was part of the Sydney Laneways art project in 2009. … Continue reading
Whilst I was studying graphic designa few years ago, I was lucky to be offered a part time role visual merchandiser for Quiksilver in Manly . This was in 2007 and I came across some pics I took. Looking back on them now, it wasn’t a bad effort. I had no merchandising training and little … Continue reading
Walking home after another day at work, I was just about to walk into my apartment block when I clocked that there were a few tellies waiting to be collected. One tellie caught my eye, it had a mosaic little pattern on it. When I came closer I saw it was a space invader!
From time to time when walking in Sydney I come across interesting little pieces, Some are artworks, others might be vintage advertising, marks spray painted by construction works. Some I have no idea what they could mean. But here are some photos of these strange markings, advertisements and scribbles…
Barry McGee’s work on the Thai Airways building in Sydney appeared one day and I was really excited to see this piece of streetart. However, not all were happy to see this newest piece of streetart to hit Sydney. Channel Seven’s take on Barry McGee I went on a great walking tour of the Laneway Art … Continue reading
Being new to the whole “blogging” thing (loving it it thought), I thought that I might pop down the tunes that I have been cranking loudly whilst blogging, sometimes even having a little dance in my living room. The tunes that’s got me this week is The Black Keys – Lonely Boy. The clip is … Continue reading
With the last few post, it has got me thinking about the idea of leaving your mark behind, the act of recording that you were here, this place, this time. A couple of years ago when I was in London, I visited the Tower of London to take a couple of friends who were travelling … Continue reading
I travelled to the South of France in 2009 and stayed just outside of Nice in a small town called Vence. Beautiful little hill-top village that was the perfect base for exploring the Cote d’Azur and Provence. I took a trip to the gorgeous village of St Paul de Vence and came across this little … Continue reading

I’ve been interested in the world of street art for a while and I love it when I stumble across great articles about streetart and how it can be used in a positive creative way. Jake Hanrahan, writer for The Guardian recently wrote a great story called “The skateboarders bringing peace to Tunisia”. This article is … Continue reading
Last year when I was travel through Paris, I notice on the Pont des Arts the bridges crossing the Seine river it was clipped with padlocks the fence. Looking closer, these locks had people’s names on them. I took a few pics but still it played on my mind what they were doing there. I … Continue reading
The City of Sydney council has commissioned some fantastic streetware art in the southern end of the CBD. I really enjoyed this walk to see some great artists and gave me some inspiration for my own work. If you have the time I really suggest you get out there and see this. Here is some pics … Continue reading
Through re-exploring Sydney, mainly by walking daily, I was happily surprised to see little pieces of street art popping up. Most of these pieces are anonymous (if you know the names of the artist, please drop me a line!) and make a very nice change from the sometimes aggressiveness and perhaps the boredom of graffiti … Continue reading
The beginning – where I to start? I am hoping to get myself out there and to start freelancing as a designer. There is a great amount of reference material that is out there in magazines, websites, recruitment companies and blogs of fantastic advice of where to start out. This has been all rather over whelming … Continue reading
