Baby Clothes

Yesterday I was busy putting my designs on Zazzle's Infant Creepers so I thought I would share some with you.

Infant Organic Creeper

The finest organic cotton for your baby. 100% organic baby rib cotton, combed for softness and comfort. Designed for easy on-and-off. Fits all babies – both boys and girls. Triple-seat snaps for bottom/diaper closure.

Josh Pyke is one of my favourite Aussie singers. I picked this clip for all the little chickens hatching out to start their new lives.

21st Century: Art in the First Decade - Leandro Erlich

Wondering what these are photos of?????

Leandro Erlich

b.1973 Argentina
Lives and works in Buenos Aires and Paris

Swimming pool 2010 is among the artist’s most well-known and critically acclaimed works and is currently on display at Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art current exhibition "21st Century: Art in the First Decade". This installation is a lot of fun and when you are in it, you start to become unsteady on your feet. It's the closest thing you can get to breathing underwater without any devices.

The gallery was closed for a couple of weeks due to the recent floods but is now reopen. Thankfully there was not any damage sustained to the works housed in GOMA. This exhibition is on till the 26th of April 2011.

These photos and the video are taken at the Museum of Art in Kanazawa, Japan where there is a version on permanent display.

Now yesterday Triple J held it's annual "Hottest 100" countdown of the most popular songs of the year before. "Big Jet Plane" by Angus and Julia Stone came in at number 1. Here is a live version of the song.

My Studio

This is my creative space "Studio Kewzoo" or the garage under my house He he. This is a much better use for a garage than storing a car I'm sure you will agree. I usually have several things on the go at any one time so it is very messy and will require a big clean out before the move to Melbourne.

There is usually music blasting, cats and dogs wandering through. My pet galahs have a cage in there as well although, when I let them out to go in their night one, they are not allowed to walk around for long due to their tendency to tear things up and wreak havoc.

I create sculpture, painting and lino cuts amongst other things so there is all sorts of interesting things in there to make things with. There is cloth, clay, polystyrene, paint, wire and too many more to mention. It mightn't be much but it's my little kingdom.

Finished this one yesterday. It's called "Groovy Garden Fairy".

This is a clip for Melbourne based muso Whitley called "Killer". The animation was done by an college classmate of mine called Stephen Baker. Great video and very clever.

Friends on Friday - Gloria Tury

One of my co-exhibitors at the Golden Globes was Gloria Tury from West Chester, Ohio in the Unites States. Her bags were a big hit and I'm sure you will agree with me that her work is elegant, unique and high class. Here is how they are created in Gloria's words:

I developed this Pyramid concept 3 winters ago,after many prototypes and 2 sketch books ...g.j.e.t. is registered with the copywriter office of USA,trademark and patent is pending.

Each Piece is hand fabricated. From the foundation to the finished piece.I try to use vintage and recycled fabrics and embellishments ,whenever possible.
Each box used for packing and display are also handmade.One at a time for each piece I ...create.

Now if you would like to make purchase enquiries please email Gloria at
or call her on 513-777-2723 remembering it is a US number.

This one is called "On the Nile" . This one is my favourite I think but it was very hard to pick one.

Now I usually add a video to the end and all these pyramids have reminded me of this song. He he a blast from the past.

The Golden Globes Gift Lounge 2011

This year I was fortunate enough to exhibit at the "Golden Globes" gift lounge with "The Indie Exhibit" A group of Artisans from all over the globe. It seems I managed to get myself some new fans. This was a wonderful experience for me and I am very grateful to all involved.
