BEN LEE and ME (a true story)

Sydney Australia 2005
As we browsed through the bright yellow aisles we were suprised to here the distorted acoustics and crackle of song through microphone and speaker. Australian alternative/folk musician/singer/song writer and ex-beau of Claire Daines', BEN LEE, was performing a live set right there in the store!
There was a humble gathering around the in-store stage and Mark and I made our way over to enjoy the show. I took this opportunity to do some sketching of the live show. By the end of his performance I was pleased with the sketches I had done and was ready to continue through the store.
Ben had announced that he would be meeting fans and signing autographs to the side. Mark had insisted that I show Ben the drawings I had done. I was reluctant, but somehow gathered the courage to meet and greet him. He seemed genuinly impressed with my drawings and so I offered him one of his choice. I was humbled and he accepted.
I returned to Mark pleased with myself. As I turned back to admire the event that had just taken place, we see Ben flocked by a gathering of girls...and no sooner than 5min later, one of the girls pulls away from the flock squeeling with glee whilst clasping on to the drawing I had just given to BEN!!! Did he just give away my drawing?!
It hurts alittle everytime I think of it...I'm trying to move on. *COUGH COUGHjerkCOUGH*

Spidey and Venom!!!

I started pencilling this at work. I find that it helps relieve the tension that can be built up from holding a wacom all day; to just do some loosey scribbles.

I was chillin at Starbucks after work and decided to clean the sucker up with some lightweight paper I carry knowing that I left my lightbox back in Sydney.
...And this is how it came out after the weekend :)
Come on, was Spiderman 3 THAT bad?!
On a similar note, Pirates 3 was AWESOME! I hope I get some time to do a pirates pin-up!

Some shoes that i had painted up with some markers. Water proof and ready to go kicking around in the Canadian Summer; which I am keen to experience. I was fortunate enough to have them on show at the Studio B art show.
And um...they're are for sale too @ limited sizes ;)
