Love From Patt.

If you are looking at sending cards this Christmas to your Family, Friends and Loved Ones look not further than Love From Patt.

Created by the wonderful and talented Laura Strange, they are a ‘Naked’ character card, customisable with your own set of stickers that you can arrange to create your very own Love From Patt character.

You can also draw, scribble and paint whatever you wish as well to make a truly unique message.

They are available from the Love From Patt website and selected stockists including Canvas in Nobby Beach.

And when you’ve finished your creation, take a photo of it and upload it to the Facebook Page to share your Masterpeice.!

But be quick cos there are limited cards left, and not many days till XMAS.!!! :D

Two Years to the Day that you left us My Brother…

You, So Amazing,Never to be Replaced by Another.

I’ll never forget this Hot Summer’s Day in December 2004 that you came to our place So Excited with a New idea, as you always did. But this was different…

You were Bouncing, like SO Happy more than I had seen in a Long Time, your energy Always rubbed off on me and you instantly inspired me… Always… You piled me into your car and drove me not even 3 Blocks, you jingled a set of keys in your hand with glee and said ‘This is the Future’.

As you lifted the roller door into a concrete warehouse space the darkness turned into a light, streaming from the roof skylight. It was one of ‘Those Spaces’ the ones we have dreamed of for years and it was surrounded with your canvases, paint tins and objects to be turned into Art. This space at 23 Avalon Parade Miami, was where one of your biggest projects and creations would be born, morphed into something totally different and take you around the world to corners you had only envisioned in your wildest dreams. Those of you who were there 2 weeks later will remember the amazing gig that went down, and will go down in History as a major surge in the undercurrent of the Gold Coast’s Creative Heart.

These days Most if us will know it as Factory 5 of ‘Rabbit & Cocoon’ – our wonderful Central Gold Coast Arts Hub, it fills my heart that it lives on as a creative space, almost in irony, and will foster the creative visions of us Today.

I will hold My Word and Complete the Work that WE started here my Brother, you, a constant inspiration to us, and for those that never met you.

I Love You Beau.

Studio Visit: Tyler Warren

Today, as part of my California Excursion, I had the pleasure of once again working with the Multi-Talented Tyler Warren.

The young 24 year old, with a soul as old as the hills.

Tyler is an amazing talent in Surfing. Through Surfing he also expresses his gifts for Surf Board Shaping, Illustrating, Painting and Design.

Such an inspiration and lust for all things Life… So refreshing to be around and work with.

We visited his Studio in Dana Point California, and as he is soon moving out of this space he has been in for a few years, i asked him if it was fitting I document a couple of Photos.

Please Enjoy Tyler’s Collections, Inspirations and Obsessions.
