Here Comes Trouble!

Last night was the opening of ST2K the month long Street art festival. It was marked by the art exhibition “HERE COMES TROUBLE” which I was lucky enough to be part of. It was a great night, very packed. Thank you to all who came! There is a really nice write up on the night here at Sydney Body art Ride. If you’d like to see photos of the event just click on the image below.

    I hope you aren’t implying I am not a diligent student (this is where I put one those emoticons with the wink and tongue sticking out so you know I am clearly joking)

  3. Am annoyed that I couldn’t make it.

    Love the website wallpaper, btw.
