I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing event organiser by @staffyandbullybreedrescue where WA rescues and Animal Welfare groups will be joining forces for all things animal & to promote rescue pets. I can’t wait to meet all the fur babies and support these great hard working rescues. Ill have a heap of pet portraits on show so you can see what your fur baby would look like ๐Ÿ˜‰ and a few other little goodies for all the animal lovers out there.

LONG LIVE THE PIRATE KING

And thatโ€™s a wrap! Gabby and I finished up yesterday arvo and started the trip home. Itโ€™s been a blast helping bring the this pirate grotto to life for some of the best people you will ever find. They are opening the doors to the newly renovated and rebranded #smugglerscoveicecreamery today. If your in Kalbarri or heading north these holidays pop in and check it out and while you there have some icecream ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜‰. LONG LIVE THE PIRATE KING. –
Iโ€™ll be posting a little more over the next few days of this job so stay tuned.

waterfall

A little taste of the last wall to keep you all at bay a little longer ๐Ÿ˜‰. Itโ€™s been hard work panting all this even Patch is buggered

flag wall

All it needs now is the pirate throne and possibly even a pirate skeleton sitting on it then itโ€™s ready to go.

cave life

Better late then never. Hereโ€™s a look at what we have been painting up in Kalbarri. Itโ€™s been a bit tricky to get good photos without losing to much detail but this is the best we can get. You will have to come see it with your own eyes to get the full detail and effect (Steco is not fun to paint on or photograph).

Perth pet expo

massive thank you to everyone and their fur babyโ€™s who came over and talked to use or just let us love you pups. –
Itโ€™s been an overwhelming few days will all the interest, support and encouragement iv been shown. I canโ€™t wait to get backing to pet portraits commissions as soon as Iโ€™m back from doing a big mural in Kalbarri over the next few weeks.

I must say with out my amazing family and friends I would not have made it through the last week and have this amazing stall. They always come an support me and help out doing what I need done, from making killer peg board displays and helping getting everything there to spending hours stamping wrapping paper and countless trips to get frames. You all rock and I canโ€™t do it with you guys ๐Ÿ˜˜.

look into my eyes

I’m always nervous about starting a new pieces and if the eyes go wrong at the start I might as well start over but these eyes are hear to stay ๐Ÿ‘€.

๐Ÿคฉ IM IN THE PERTH PET EXPO ๐Ÿคฉ.

Iโ€™m so excited to announce that this year Iโ€™v taken a big risk to putting myself out there and got a stall at the Perth pet expo on the 17th-18th November. Iโ€™ll have a whole heap of pet portraits on show (with my bookings for 2019 open) and a few other animal works for sale (stickers, Tote bags, hand/paw made xmass wrapping paper that @georgebullx is helping with ๐Ÿ• and a few other things) Iโ€™m excited and shitting bricks at the same time ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ฐโœ๐Ÿป.

little foal

Big things come in small packages and this little foal was no different.

tiny foal

My tiny foal is taking shape and colour. She has a beautiful rich coat and to make sure the shadows/blacks are not flat these are the colours I use to make โ€œblackโ€. Swipe to see how tiny she really is, her head is smaller then a 50c coin.

getting into it

I sometimes get lost drawing fur and turns out hair to, just following the strands and flicks of the way hold hairs.

Heart strings

That hand and paw ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ญ itโ€™s going to be so sweet.

Welsh cob stallion

Finished this beautiful welsh cob stallion off yesterday. It was a delight to meet this cheeky boy in person and Iโ€™ve loved the challenge of drawing a black coat and finding ways to pull light and colour from it. This will now make its way down to Narrogin to the stud farm he calls Home.

what dose she use?

Maybe she’s born with it…. Maybe it’s manebelline .
Slowly getting there when ever I have an hour to spear.

black is not black

Black is not just black itโ€™s made up of lots of other colours like sky blue to get a good black finish.

the start of something new

If you squint your eyes and turn your head you can make out the lines of a horse ๐Ÿด
This is the start of my next pet portrait for the owner of this lovely Welsh cob stallion. She was so kind and let me spend some time getting to know some of her fur babies and let me take photos of a few of them with my pet wedding signs.

Handmade

On the tools today wiping up the next batch of wedding signs. Thereโ€™s just something about doing it by hand I like. I think it adds a little something special to handmade goods, knowing that someone has taken the time.
