Recently I was having a general clean out of my studio. I do this every few months or so. I get rid of lots of old junk as well as artworks that will not play any part of my artistic output. Going through my plan chest I came across the set of prints below and couldn't bring myself to throw them out. In fact, I ended up revising and re working them as a set. The original set of six prints had the umbrella title of 'Oh Mr. Hawking' as they were to accompany a poem I had just w
Mask 2 Below is one of my early digital prints. I came across it while going through the plan chest in my studio. I have clear outs every now and again. I know some artists think this is sacrilege.

I wrote the two blogs below in 2016 as a response to the appalling situation re the cancellation of the Melbourne Art Fare that year. At the time, I decided not to publish it on this blog. I should have. I chickened out and shame on me for doing that. Well, it's back on again, The Melbourne Art Fare that is; presumably because the tin pot nobodies of the ACGA feel like there's a profit in it this year.
