David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust and Iggy Pop
This drawing was preparation for the Iggy and Ziggy section of the Garden of Earthly Delights at the Record Crate in Glebe where they're riding a cloud. Bess O'Malley was telling me about a Cambodian Space Project rock opera about Iggy Pop and showed me a picture of him as Hanuman -Monkey. So I was thinking about the Japanese TV series and the irrepressible Monkey's cloud chariot.
Bess has an Iggy Pop show on very soon at Newsagency Gallery that I'm painting a canvas for
Bess has a
Susan and Kerrie drawing and chatting around the art table at Rough Edges. And old mate on the phone who name I didn't write down and then immediately forgot - argghh
My first time at Roughies for a bit, but now I'm in the area more for a bit I'll get up there more regularly. Grace is now leading the Urban tour Roughies run sometimes. I'm looking forward to going on one

2 views out the window at Weave in McElhone St, this one shows the skeleton of the Crest hotel, finished now
I worked out a shopping list today to get started on the large canvas I'm doing for Weave - we're getting them on Tuesday, it's exciting to be getting started
Houses and flats on McElhone and Brougham Sts, I'll keep fiddling around with this one. The versions from yesterday are below.
Earlier layers in this painting can be seen here and I'll add it to the page with all of my Woolloomooloo paintings soon(promise) . I've also started a page to put all my work at Weave but I won't start pasting links around until there's something there
We finally finished the mural in Glebe. Many thanks and a big round of applause go to Grace Woods for her flowers and sun which transform the setting. We haven't signed it yet or taken photos of last minute additions - I'll get some when I put a sealing coat on, meanwhile check out Julie O'Brien's photos below and on the Garden of Earthly Delights page.

Some beautiful photos taken by Jules today. Over the next few days I'll try to find some time to write some captions.
The Garden of Earthly Delights is nearly complete and we'll have a launch on the 19th August, with some entertainment and nibbles, so if you're in Sydney come along, the Record Crate is at 34 Glebe Pt Rd in Glebe
