So a while back a posted about a vinyl toy show that I was taking part in, in association with Vinyl Destination and Exposure Gallery. Well below you can see my piece and the toys from the show have just gone on sale on the internet today. You can BUY my piece here and at a starting bid of R500 for the toy, camera and a print, that is a DAMN steal!!Oh and I almost forgot, proceeds go to Charity :)

Dreams in Focus

July16

The vinyl toy scene in SA is alive and kicking and this Thursday(19th July) we will see South Afria’s first show featuring local as well as International artists. The show is being run by Vinyl Destination and it will be going down at the Exposure Gallery at the Old Biscuit Mill from 6pm till late. Looks like its shaping up to be quite the massive event, definitely not one to miss if you are into vinyl toys, art or just into being in. I will have a piece in the show, so come down and say hi.

Custom Boom

June26

So I finished the first custom Keg O’ Boom over the weekend, for Twitter friend @kikmi. He wanted me to do an “Acid Flow” type vibe with Lambo Greens. Must say it was really great to drop some paint on a Keg and it suites customising fantastically if I do say so myself. Unfortunately I am crazy busy with stuff at the moment, so this solitary shitty pic will have to do for now. Will post some decent pics asap. Let me know what you think?

The Apple media machine is once again in full steam as it touts the latest Hoola-Hoop in its product range, the iPad. I am without doubt that this will become the latest must have gimmick for our product hungry world. At Least the influx of advertising means we get to see some actual creativity, the latest iPad ad leads itself perfectly to some great adbusting from Johannes P Osterhoff in Berlin.

Check after the Hop for detail Shots, Beware possibily NSFW:
