This is the room of an obsessive collector, someone who lived by themselves - no space left or created for visitors. The entire exhibition is built around this installation - it is quite simply the most beautiful thing in Melbourne at this moment. Go and see it as soon as you can.
It stirred up so many feelings of longing that I couldn't shake even after we left.

Jeremy and I recently attended the VCA graduate play "Invisible Stains" starring Annie Last, which is a "A collage of images and events from the 20th Century, traced through intergenerational memory, impact upon a group of contemporary youth caught in a culture of instant gratification."
Lead Actress Annie Last kindly allowed us backstage to take this stunning portrait of her holding a rose.

New Native American Clay pipes available at Corky Saint Clair. The last lot sold out on the day we put them on the floor.
These ones are even more stunning than the last lot, if that were even possible.
I remember in the 90s alot of my feminist friends wore whistles around their necks, but this seems like a much nicer, hipper, hippier version of that.
The MCNEILLS PORCELAIN project continues. The first lot of samples have come back after four months (thanks Northcote Pottery).
The Sarah's original drawings are so delicate it's hard to reproduce them accurately onto porcelain, but that's half the charm and half the challenge. When I nail it, I will totally own it and it won't be easy for anyone else to copy.

I kinda promised this to someone but then after I got it back and tried it on, I didn't want to take it off, so I've been wearing it non-stop for two weeks, which for me is a record.
Basically the main thing I learnt this year is that all of the characters become cuter as they get smaller, rounder and denser.
Available now from Corky Saint Clair and TNK $79Au RRP

Dear Readers and Customers
Today my new collection of men's tees arrived at the shop.
I haven't done a new screenprint collection for a couple of years 'cos of the accident and my inexorable move toward jewellery but my new collection is so sweet. Will post more pictures soon.
I won't design anymore girls teeshirts as I have no feeling for that.
I am working on a new skull tee that seems to be taking a million years but looks amazing.
Here is a photo by request for the famous/infamous Corky Han Solo in Carbonite necklace. Available exclusively from Corky Saint Clair $150 Au RRP

Brass Stag necklace. Stunning and fun to wear.
I made a larger version for myself to wear on my wedding night, but that fell through.
$58Au RRP available from Corky Saint Clair and Kids In Berlin.

The PXL-2000’s black and white image was so faded, it had no real blacks and whites, just shades of dead grey. The image also had square grains instead of dots, creating a dream-like, moving mosaic. Kids and parents were scared by the black-and-white “horror film” image it gave, but adult artists gravitated towards it, giving this new medium a name – Pixelvision.
The most famous example was probably Michael Almareyda's urbane 1994 horror film NADJA.
I'm kinda thinking of getting one to film some Corky Ads with my new in house models showcasing my new range of super hot men's teeshirts.

I imagine this is exactly what I will look like once I put the shorts on.
Shorts with cut outs HEXAGODEAN SHORT SHORTS- these would look cute if you had awesome undies underneath.
For very special boys only - ones with no body fat. If you are over 30 your love handles are gonna get pushed up and out - but that could be kinda hot, I guess.

I read this story in my favourite magazine "Fantastic Man" about a technique of shoe polishing where you polish your tan shoes with a shoe polish a tone darker than your shoes - the polish wears off leaving your shoes looking burnished and buffed.
Look at the lovely rich colour I achieved on my brogues using this technique. They were originally closer to the shoe the ginger is wearing.
