John Wolseley – NGV



11 APRIL 2015 – 20 SEPTEMBER 2015


I went to the NGV Ian Potter Gallery to see this exhibition and I think it is absolutely incredible.

John Wolseley is from the United Kingdom and has been living in Australia since 1976. Wolseley was commissioned by Sir Roderick Carnegie AC to complete a “new series of works that would capture the Australian landscape at the beginning of the twenty-first century.”

I highly recommend that when you see the exhibition that you should go on a guided tour (the exhibition and tour are free.) I feel that it adds more value and insight to you and you can get to know the art works a  lot better.

Being a city dweller myself, what I enjoyed the most (aside from being inspired by Wolseley’s techniques and art) is that it brought my attention to the natural world. Wolseley mentions in the video at the end that “as a species we are completely detached from natural world”, he says that what he does to create his work is to understand how the natural world works, and to do so he lives the landscapes and now has “almost four decades of intimate association with the land.”

The exhibition ends in September (which is a while a way) but put it into your schedule and make sure you see it before then. I know I’ll definitely go to see it again.

I only found out about Humble last week. They are made in Melbourne. I love the whole philosophy of the brand, it makes me feel nice. The packaging and products actually make me feel nicer. I have become obsessed with the lip balm ( It only costs $9.95), I can’t stop applying it which is great for my dry lips and it smells great. The only thing I was wondering though was, what do you do after you’ve applied the lip gloss and you don’t have tissue? I don’t want to wipe it on my clothes… what do you do? Just forget about it until it dissolves?

Hi old friends

I can’t remember the last time I wrote a blog post!

It’s all changed and I don’t even know where the dashboard has gone. It’s not at all how I remember it.

I’ve been spending all my time on Instagram. How great is Instagram? It is so much fun. Except for when it went and crashed for like an hour yesterday afternoon, right after I finished work. I tried to refresh my page, and nothing. I was like what? What is life? I can’t see if anyone has liked anything! I can’t see new posts! What if I miss something! And then I thought what if just all of a sudden their was no internet connection. Like if the internet just didn’t work. Would I even exist? Would anyone else exist?

Is your life recorded anywhere else other than online? You know because there is FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter (which was working thankfully), and then Email, Snapchat, Imessage, and more, where we document our daily existence. How would you keep in touch with the rest of the world if there was no internet. How can I share my drawing with everyone if Instagram doesn’t work?

Some people who thought they were funny on twitter were like, read a book, eat without taking a photo, smell real roses. I thought that was lame. Because we can do those things, it’s just more fun when you can share them with your friends, (all your friends.) Could you imagine life pre-internet. How different.


Here’s a burger I drew and posted on IG yesterday. It’s from 8Bit in Footscray. They make great burgers.

Have you been to the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the NGV? It’s on until February next year, you have plenty of time, but don’t miss out. And you probably have to go more than once, just so you can take it all in.


Above is a collage I made of a few illustrations I drew from the exhibition.




Foto Friday

Looking through these photos I noticed I’ve been reading a lot more lately. Almost all the photos are of books, or things I have found in books. Yay for books, they fill me with life and inspirations. Anyone been reading anything interesting lately?


I founds a delicious recipe for this Pomegranate-Banana Lassi. I can’t wait to make it!

Another shot from a page in the book ‘Around Australia with Jacky Winter’. Such clever typography.

This is a page from the newest Post Secret book.

My friend Joel was reading this and said it is quite great.

A little melfie after work on Sunday

This is the jacket I made today, using that fabric I’ve spoken about it previous posts. Didn’t actually turn out too bad.

My lovely brother left this for me, such a thoughtful boy!

This here is another piece of my collection, it’s like a tunic/top/dress thing. It’s menswear.

Is it just me or are the weeks flying by. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. How are all your new years resolutions going? I totally failed mine. Haha, oops. Oh well, I suppose I can try again next year.

Here’s foto friday!


The sky and moon was doing some crazy shit one night and I totally forgot I took this awesome photo

The weekend past was so lovely and sunny. I took this while sitting outside in the Bourke Street Mall on my lunch break

We shot a mini doco at New Model Beauty Queen and this is me hiding behind one of their skull screens. So cool.

This wall of threads is also from New Model Beauty Queen. It’s just like a rainbow only it’s threads.

My dads famous garlic barbecued fish. So yum!

I started cutting my jacket today. I’m not as stressed about it anymore. The jacket will still look nice, would have looked nicer in black, but it still looks nice. I just need to finish it on time!
