You have to laugh..

October 30, 2010

While this isn’t strictly HGC related, it’s pretty bloody funny, so I wanted to share…

Saw this on the way home from dinner last night on a sign post in the middle of Nundah.

Good to see that not everybody in the world has lost their sense of humour  🙂

A breath of fresh air :p

Final adjustments to the Artist statement and Titles is complete and the series is now finished.

The series will make it’s debut at Brisbane Square Library in January and February 2011 alongside a selection of images from THEY CAME

01:31:12 (The Last Goodbye) from the series 'austrALIENation'


New series online now

October 27, 2010

Finally, after a years worth of planning austrALIENation is online.

A departure from the processes of the ‘THEY CAME’ series, it’s still principally shot on the iPhone, but austrALIENation focuses on the underlying messages as it’s prime goal.

In the coming days a trailer will be released as a companion to the 2D works as well as some deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut. But for now it can be viewed online at

For those that know me well, this has been a labour of love and I have had some major personal issues to overcome and that has made this series all the more special. Thanks also to Luke Roberts, who opened my eyes to a wider, more positive world.

Thanks for looking…

Graduating Exhibition…

October 22, 2010

I would like to invite you all to the graduation exhibition at QCA on Thursday the 18th of November at the QCA Southbank Campus.

More details to come, but in the meantime, how cool is the cover of our catalogue   :p


The new series is finished and is off to the framers tomorrow. Will post a few images on the website in the coming week.

I am so pleased with how it has all turned out after a year of planning, writing and constant brain draining it is worth the bottle of expensive red I’m about to open.




ps. that cow looks green to me


At least I think this is on the cover... I hope so.

There is something oddly compelling about Catholic iconography.

To me this is inspirational, but not in the religious sense…

I have to admit to a love/fascination of religious imagery, from the sculptures and paintings in the most beautiful cathedrals to things like my Frankin Mint Commemorative Jesus Plate and my Glow in the Dark Saviour figure.

This image I captured for it’s sheer beauty in St Stephens cathedral in Brisbane. Just wanted to share  🙂

After all, it couldn’t be HolyGreenCow without the Holy.

Opening Night part 2

October 1, 2010

Wow!! What a great night at the opening of C Gallery at Centro 2 on James street.

Troy and his staff did a fantastic job and it was packed. There was live music great food and drink and some great art.

Unfortunately we had to go early, but I snapped off this photo (much to Jean’s dismay)  🙂
