The Old Newcastle Post Office



The colonial PO on Hunter St sitting empty. It'd be great if the Awabakal Land Council could get their shit together and make it a public building again. Eg as a cultural centre and gallery it would be cool.

It's a bit like Interzone down the Hunter St mall now the railway was closed and DJs moved out, and this and other buildings lying semi-abandoned. Thanks to all the friendly crowd who stopped for a chat or threw a few $ in the hat




Getting closer to being finished - I'll go and paint more on the trees and the PO itself and maybe add a few people etc tomorrow or next weekend and then it should be done


With the Post Office and Hunter St behind



 

A beautiful sandstone building falling into ruin, while property speculators and politicians attempt to profiteer from the nearby abandoned rail line

I did a couple  of small panels in a mural at Rough Edges that Stephen Corry has organised  for regulars at Rough Edges to come and paint a section. So I painted some people playing music

The Bakers Dozen from Wisdom Lane



This is just about finished now


The Bakers Dozen in Darlinghurst with the city behind and the freeway tunnel in front. In the 1980s it was all squats around here

Girl dancing for Martin


Martin Walsh asked me for a drawing of a dancing girl for a collage he's putting together, so I trawled the interwebs for photos and drew this

I went out to do some portraits on King St Newtown last night. Here are some sketches of the people on the street


This is Glenn with his portrait - he was feeling down and wanted me to record that

Trees and heads




trees and a car in front of BED in Glebe


a few fragmentary faces

Some of the base of the huge fig tree in the front of Newtown cemetery. I've been drawing and painting a few trees lately. This one will be part of a mural I'm painting in the waiting room in Newtown mission so I'll also post it over on the Newtown Last Supper blog

Dark Ambulance

I went to Rich Machine's Dark Ambulance experimental music night at the Record Crate in Glebe . There'd been a bit of a callout for sketch artists on facebook so Geoffrey Goodes and I both did some drawings of the acts and the scene

nOOOOOOOOO - with Sim and Alex

Joe Manton and his brother- with Geoffrey Goodes drawing at the side

Matt (his hair at least) and Someone whose name I've forgotten - can someone fill me in and I'll fix this.

Quantum Collapse

Or else Observer effect 
The fase where our observation influence the Forcez to Manifest into a form that is understandable for the human mind . 
In this sense All creatures manifest their Reality as observe , desire and intent various manifestations of the same energies

Quantum Collapse

The "quantum" is just A quantity of energies synchronised into a specific freequency in Time , positioned in our dimentions thru our preconceived information . 
The eye of the observer reflects visible or not  light and more spectrums resulting to interfere / exchange information with the "observed " and so create a third New entity / spectrum/ frequency ecc 
More or less like Sex 
Two opposite forces mix and create an independent third . A baby - A new entity in 3D that initially existed only in the imagination or the Potential . !
