Ennui Emergency

sweep

All that stuff I said about taking down the exhibition has turned a little bit line-in-the-sandy. Turns out the Sidespace Gallery is available for another couple of weeks, so, er, BY POPULAR DEMAND WE’RE STAYING OPEN A BIT LONGER!

Doors will be open Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm for the next two weekends (November 21, 22, 28 & 29) so if you haven’t yet experienced the greatest cartooning haiku event of November 2009 in Hobart and/or have nothing to do, please come on down.

This also means the haiku competition will be open a bit longer. We’ve already got some cracking entries, so you’ll have to be good to take out the GRAND PRIZE.

The Kudelka Up The Wall Exhibition

 

The Mill That Wasn't There

The Mill That Wasn't There

I finally got around to doing the adding up for the Exhibition, and over the nine days, we ended up getting 1263 people through the gallery, so we’ll definitely be doing it again next year. All originals are spoken for, though prints are still available. To see them, go here.

Looks like The Mill That Wasn’t There’s going to haunt us for at least another couple of years.

A very particular fetish

 

 

 

Well, Big Red In The Tub finally sold on ebay for $1277 and will be most appropriately gracing the buyer’s newly designed bathroom. Bon voyage big fella, I have plans for a great big Bartlett In The Sandpit for next year if he survives that long.

Just one final parting pleasure for Paul Lennon’s portrait – I was checking my blog stats the other day and one of the google search terms that brought someone to the site was “erotic hot tubbing paintings”. I can only imagine the poor chap’s disappointment when Big Red appeared… or perhaps it was just what was wanted, which is indeed an appalling thought, but the internet’s a broad church. Different strokes and all that…

BIG RED IN THE TUB UP FOR SALE

The infamous painting of Big Red In The Tub by Walkley Award winning cartoonist me is on the wall at my exhibition at the Sidespace Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre. Big Red’s hot tub marks a tumultuous period in Tasmanian history and is for direct sale for $3500 or you can bid for it on ebay here (currently a snip SOLD at $100 $120 $193.49 $406  $610! $1277) Apparently, it will be gracing a bathroom in its new home. Happy hot tubbing, I say.

Also at the exhibition are my favourite 20 newspaper cartoons for 2008 and some other paintings:
