Test entry from iPhone

Just got the wordpress app for my iPhone.. Thought I would add an entry and see if I could bear using it over the next two weeks on the 3G network!

I’m off on break, to paint around Culburra, NSW, from Tuesday. So no computer but iPhone will travel. I have access to twitter, this blog, linkedin and email.. and safari..

You know it’s only a matter of time before this stuff is all an implant. Won’t need a computer/iPhone! As a kid I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would have access to such technology, and we take it for granted, it’s so ‘ho hum’.. We even bitch about it!

So ends my ponderings for now and this wordpress on iPhone test.. With attached pic for the hell of it!

Western made Ad's in China

Funny where your artwork ends up! In this case it was my commercial advertising work.. I had to paint the ‘frozen’ city on the poster, the man and the dog were photographed by Sydney photographer Mike Skelton and comped over my painting.

I was walking into the centre of Beijing that day (July 2004 – a 2.5 hr walk) in hot humid conditions and came across my painting on the ad. So I had to stop and photograph it. I think the Chinese man on the bike was thinking the same as me… “I’d kill for a cold drink!”

If I find the original painting, I’ll post it here..
