Happy New Year everyone! I’m guessing most of you are back at work after the festive season and wishing you were still on holiday. So here is a little distraction for you, or possibly some inspiration for your next holiday.
It has almost been two weeks since my 100 Day Project finished, so here they are… all 100 days, along with a before and after to show how each day began. 100 days of adding colour to everyday scenes and my working hours. On the last day I felt a great sense of accomplishment, along with a huge wave of relief that it was over! After I signed up for the project I received a couple of big illustration commissions and time became scarce, I also managed to tear a tendon in my drawing arm, so for a while there I felt like I was running a marathon with no sign of the finish line. But I made it! And even though my husband has asked me never to do this again (it really did take over my life for a while!), I have had brief thoughts of other projects I could attempt next… maybe not for 100 days though!
In a bid to keep their local streets free of graffiti, Sydney’s Inner West Council devised the Perfect Match initiative. Local residents and property owners plagued with graffiti are matched with street artists who transform the unsightly publics wall into works of art. Perfect Match 2016 took place earlier this month.
Having recently moved from the inner west, to New Zealand, I haven’t been able to check out any of this years walls, so here are a few photographs I took from previous Perfect Matches. Artists include Fintan Magee, Phibs, Dallas Clark and Stephen Evans, Mulga, Jumboist, Ears, Sid Tapia and Peque,
And while the organised tours and events associated with the Perfect Match weekend may be over, you can still download the map and take a self guided tour of this impressive outdoor gallery.
