Well I have been so busy this week I have only just stopped to blog this morning. Firstly the three continent Australia, New York and Hauge sky phone interview on Sunday night Australian time as mentioned in the below blog went well, the interview should be published in the next coupla weeks or so in the Arts in New York magazine. I will paste a copy in my blog when I have it.

I was also interviewed for the Adelaide Magazine last Thursday a story about emerging artist in Adelaide that comes out in the May edition so loooking forward to that.

I have been welding madly on the new red series of life size metal figurative sculptures see one of them Jesus below in the previous blog. The series will have 6 pieces in the set, Iam having trouble photographing them as they are minimal and transparent so to get any depth I will need to experiment with lighting to get the full effect Iam looking for, once I get this I will add the images to my blog.

I have confirmed my solo show titled 7 Deadly Sins (my version) for August 9th to 16th at the Avalon Gallery in Adelaide Iam very excited about this, it will be part of the South Australian Living Arts Festival the festival is in it's 10th year and thousands of art lovers travel to Adelaide for the huge event which runs from 3rd to 19th August.

I just finished filming a short boxing movie yesterday about my life as a fighter that is being edited this week so I should have it uploaded on my movie page next week I will add the link to my blog also.

Lastly some images below of some time travelers I sent these images of to the Birdwood National Motor Museum in Adelaide to see if they would like to exhibit my Time Machine as part of their Museum, I have not heard back from them so far.(the time machine has been exhibited twice at the Adelaide Museum and once in the Adelaide train station) I think it would be a great exhibit kids and adults a like constantly ride the machine when they visit the crypt art house.

That's all for now.

Well it was only 12 months ago today that I was on a plane headed for the Big Apple New York City for my first International Group Exhibition at the Monkdogz Urban Gallery at the request of Mr Bob Hogge and Marina Handley owners of the newly established gallery and their very first inaugural show.

Below some images of the opening night, including shots of the gallery owner Bob and I flying the Aussie flag, my Osama Bin Laden and Sister my Sister junk sculpture's, Marina in the blue dress and Marcus next to me with head phones on. It was a great time I stayed in New York for 5 weeks and toured through many galleries and tourist attractions. I have since buit up a fantastic friendship with the Monkdogz family and Marcus from Hauge. I was also invited back to show my art for a second time in Sept 2006 the show was titled "Came to Believe" I was unable to attend as I broke my ankle but you can check out all the opening night images of all the Monkdogz exhibitions at www.monkdogz.com

Well found out today my self portrait shown earlier in the month did not make the finals of the Archibald Portrait Prize.There were 641 entries from all over Australia and 41 made it into the final, only one South Australian got in. However I was painted by another Achibald entrant named Gerhard Ritter he is a portrait painter from my local art studio and did this portrait in 2006 with me standing along side one of my junk sculptures titled Hangman. He did a good job.
I will start work on a few experimental portraits ready for next years Archibald.
