An insightful eye into the inspiring mind, this month I have been flying between New York and the Caribbean, to let go of the world and find it again.
If those of you who missed out on seeing Dark Side of the Sunny Moon at the Warflower exhibition, it has been requested to screen at the Sydney International Animation Festival at the beginning of this month, Sunday 6th September. In conjunction with the festival, my lightbox etchings will be exhibited from the 5th Sept, for 3 weeks. Info and Tickets here

No Art have been busy like crazy, with new songs, shows, CDs, a photoshoot and general merriment. We've even remembered to collect evidence. (Just don't expect this every month.)
Our show with friends Ghoul and the Spheres at Dirty Shirlows was a little bit amazing. We love you!
But possibly even more, this dog loved Charles and his pizza.
This night was also the debut of our amazing new creature web, courtesy of brilliant artist/BJB creator Kevina-Jo Smith. Could that red velvet and pot plant be more perfect? Talk about a stage...Our show at Spectrum was also an excellent evening. Sadly, technical issues prevented Karoshi from playing, but we promise to join forces with him again soon... As for the other two crews, we can't decide who won: I Like Cats with their hilarity vs. cinematic brilliance, or Indian Ocean with their sneaky debut and the best African mix tape DJ set one is ever likely to hear. Here's some epic photos of us 'doing it'.
Kevina outdid herself, decorating the stage with odds and ends from all corners of her magical studio, as well as creating legs for us and amoeba-like CD art (even if these didn't stay up on the wall for long).
Kevina and Jefske also worked hard this month to transport us to the fifth dimension. Thank you both, you are the most amazing artist friends ever! Here's a peek.
Thank you x one billion to everyone who came to shows, got drunk and yelled things out. Come back and do it again sometime. For your efforts, one final treat: a mix. Download here.
More to come next month and forever. Watch out.
At Greedy Hen we've been manically drawing and cutting paper to make a giant mountain of mess on Katherine's desk ...and to coincide with the chaos we're also using the cuttings to make an elaborately animated music film clip for one of our most favourite bands The Middle East. We're seriously obsessed with them.
Greedy Hen are also currently having an art exhibition in Brisbane, which can be gazed upon until september 5th at Metro Arts Gallery, and at The Power House Museum where we're showing some limited edition sets of hand painted crockery for Design Week.
"May put you off your food" -ABC News, describing our retardo Hairy Man Chest crockery.
We were also guest speakers at The Powerhouse Museum last week to coincide with this event. yay public speaking! ....Eerrrr.
So, The big Fashion Sale will be happening at BJB Studios mid september, so come and check it out! For more info go to www.bigfashionsale.com.au
