Fairy Park, a set on Flickr.
i realised i haven't shared the pics i took at fairy park with Barbarella, Dom & Riley way back in August !
(well other than some off my phone)
I recently uploaded a few more images to flickr and also remember there a few of you still here on LJ so i'll post here as well.

anyhoo, i was working as Front of house manager in the Portico room, on the second floor at Melbourne Town Hall, a 67 seat venue, with all wonderful artists performing.
I had Timandra Harkness and Matt Parker in maths of death (for 6 days), Umit Bali (for final 10 days of the festival) Anne Edmonds, Celia Pacquola and Damian Callinan
each performer was super nice and a pleasure to work with.
I didnt get to actually see their shows though (but i had seen Anne perform this show at melbfringe)
considering i worked 5.30-11 pm most days i couldn't actually see many festival shows, but I did manage to see a few things:
Daniel Kitson - Where Once Was Wonder
Watson - Shakespeare fight club
Tie her to the tracks
Slow clap - Truth
Dr Brown - Befrdfgth
Sam Simmons - About the weather
Simon Amstell - Numb
Set list x 4 ish times
Haus party x3 and other festival club bits and pieces a few times
so many things i would have loved to have seen, it's not worth thinking about ;p
over all it was a great festival.
I picked up a few new Pitt brush pens and decided to try them out and I have been meaning to try and draw birds for a while.
When we went to to Qld last year i made a list of all the birds i spotted and IDed correctly, and had decided to try and draw them all, but I hadn't got around to doing any until now. (though only 5 of these birds drawings are on that list, 2 of these are ones i saw in melb. zoo:)
first I've only drawn birds that i have photo reference of, and that i have taken those photos of the bird myself.
I have also tried to do a sketch/drawing a day this year, as well as a photo a day. so far the drawing slipped when i went away to Tas, but i have managed to draw a lot more since I've been back home.
still having problem running off the page, may switch to a larger sketch book ;p
silver(sea)gull, pied heron, crested tern, white-browed wood swallow, masked lapwing (spur-wing plover), Swan, magpie-lark (pee-wee)
Sketch, the handsome George Valentin

We went and saw the Artists last night
in case if you don't know, it is a modern silent film, filmed in black and white. it has minimal sound for effect.
it kept pretty true to old silent film scripts and style, and was reminiscent of many old films but was a nice homage rather than a copy or recreation.
quite an enjoyable and fun film.
I took heaps of pics, and you probably saw, I just put up the first set, from our visit to the MONA. still to come hobart and MOFO snaps and other tassie snaps.
i then went off to visit family for a while, and got back to melb last wednesday.
on Saturday we went to the Dr who symphony which was quite an enjoyable evening out, I wouldnt normally go to a MSO concert but was soemthing different. was just music from the 11th dr. would liek to go to the LOTR ones if it doesnt sell out.
yesterday got call Mum was sick again so still waiting for details of exactly what, but something with her remaining kidney, but not a stone. hopefully it's ok, she is to see her doc tomorrow for test results.
i also went to a life drawing class last night, first one in 5 years, really need to get my skills up, but to draw again was a good distraction to yesterdays stress, and it felt good to actually draw again. must keep it up when i can afford it. if interested a few life drawings are up here
i'm still mainly just on twitter these days, and flickr, then instagram and tumblr more than here (as they are all easy to acess on my phone mainly :)
I forget to check in here as often but i still read friends pages when I'm on a real computer, but i may have missed stuff in the past few weeks while i was away.
