Groot with Koala (Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy exhibition at GOMA, Brisbane)

Marvel GOMA Brisbane Groot and Koala

Groot with Koala

As soon as I saw Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy at the Marvel Creating the Cinematic Universe at GOMA, Brisbane, I knew I needed to create this picture.

Groot, being a tree, just had to have a koala on him!  And in such a great pose, my little koala just fitted perfectly hugging his arm.

Cute or what?  Maybe Groot could be the Guardian of the Koalas?

With the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group on Sunday we visited the Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art.  If you love the superhero movies then you will love this – the exhibition features a whole range of costumes, props, movie clips and scenery from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.  

Here are a selection of my favourite photos showing costumes, artwork, artist work space, and even the awesome train set from Ant Man!

How Cool is this Drawing Board?

On Sunday I visited the Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, and one display was this awesome drawing board offering an animation featuring snippets of concept background artwork.

Very mesmerising and inspiring!

Now I just need to work on making my drawing board look like this… ūüôā

Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup – May at Northshore Harbour

Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup – May @ Northshore Harbour

In May, the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup group met at Northshore Harbour – it was a lovely day with lovely views across the Brisbane River.  We all stayed in the same spot so was great to view everyone’s art as they progressed through the morning.  It is so inspirational seeing the variety and quality of what others were creating.  It took me a little while to get going but I then opted for a comic style approach documenting things as they happened, from me arriving by City Cat, having our coffees and seeing dogs walking by.

The next meetup is on Sunday at GOMA – for more information please see the meetup group page: https://www.meetup.com/Brisbane-Painting-Drawing-Meetup/

Brisbane Painting & Drawing April Meetup – Southbank

Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group - Southbank April

Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup Group

In April, I organised the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group and chose to hold it at Southbank.  There’s such great views of the city from Southbank and so can really get stuck into drawing a landscape full of skyscrapers or people meandering by.

Afterwards we all had lunch together and is greatly inspiring learning about other peoples techniques and to see their artworks from the day.  As my sketchbooks are normally full of animal sketches it was quite nice to get stuck into the Brisbane skyline.

The next meetup is on Sunday at Goma and to sign up or for more information please visit the Meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/Brisbane-Painting-Drawing-Meetup/ 

SKETCH: Cicada shell, Whites Hill Reserve, Brisbane

“I Can Hug Trees Too”

Just thought I’d post this as it is something a little bit different from my usual cute and fluffy wildlife animals!¬† I came across some cicada shells on a tree on a¬†recent lunch time walk in Whites Hill Reserve in Brisbane and so I attempted to sketch them..¬†¬†Then I realised that, yes they may not be cute and fluffy, but they do belong to the wonderful natural landscape and the¬†order of animals called ‘Tree Huggers’ which classification covers a wide range of animals which includes¬†koalas, possums, snakes, and nature loving humans.
