I got my copy last week in the mail, and it is great to see this project come to fruition. I’m super happy with how my submission came out and it’s great to be side-by-side with animators and artists I really admire.
You can get your own copy at Sutu’s store, and more info about Eyejack, the app that runs the the AR on your mobile device, here. Very exited to see where this goes in the near future, and how artists bridge the traditional and digital arts with this tech.
Sutu (Stuart Campbell) is a prolific visual and comic artist who has been exploring technology in his work thematically and in the way it’s seen for some time now. His latest project – Prosthetic Reality – An Augmented Reality Art book has kicked off and is calling for backers on his Prosthetic Reality Kickstarter page. I’ve been very lucky to be included in the International 45 artist line up with some amazing people, and from the samples I have seen it’s shaping up to be something really special. If you are a collector, a fan of animation, or are interested in the new space technology is pushing art into check it out (click on the pic above)
New paintings! There are things happening in the studio again. Detail shot of new acrylic work on canvas – more to come.
In the Studio
I’ve been working on small scale studies recently. Acrylic on paper mounted to board, 210m x 297mm (A4) – the last of the supplies I brought back from Japan. If you’re interested in purchasing one of these pieces get in touch via my info page.
Going on trips
Journeys have been on my mind recently, and it reminded me of a trip I took to Kyoto for the first time way back. At one of the shrines I was encouraged to buy some of the lucky charms (お守り) from the stall in the gardens. There were literally dozens to choose from – charms that helped to earn more money, others that kept you safe on the road etc. I’m not sure if there was one for journeys but this painting – Ryokou Omamori (or is it Tabi Omamori?), is my lucky charm for just such an occasion. I don’t think you’ll find a charm quite like this one there.
Acrylic on wood panel, 140mm x 180mm

After several studies and 2 months of work, this piece is finally finished and has found it’s new home back in Australia. Working with natural motifs, I discovered more about what can be done with this method of painting. I’ve always been pretty meticulous with the drafting work at the beginning – measuring all the angles and keeping everything in check, like a perspective drawing, but this time I could sketch things out more loosely and try new things with colour -relying more on the light and contrast to make the figures.
It’s been quite a while since there was any significant news to report, but that’s not to say I haven’t been busy.
Lots of days indoors recently – working on large wood mounted paper pieces in acrylic. This piece was the first, and it’s setting the level for a small series I’m doing on “spiritual kitsch”. Over the turn of the year I’ll have a few pieces on display in Niseko, Hokkaido. More details on time and place very soon.
Above is a teaser from the new series. “A change in fate / 運命の分かれ道 ” 52 x 73 cm, acrylic & ink on mounted paper.
