Getting amped for Dragon Dreaming with this Dragonfly.

Well technically its a Damselfly, and while both Dragonflies and Damselflies belong to the order Odonata, there are many differences. Damselflies hold their wings behind them, like this dude, when resting and are generally considered weaker fliers. However, some Damselflies eat spiders by hovering in front of their web and plucking the spider right out of the middle, so how’s that for being weaker. Stupid Dragonflies. Damselflies are truly the Dolph Lundgren of the insect world.

Creature from the Black Lagoon. Aerosol and marker on perspex.

Can we still say Black? It feels very un-PC . I don’t feel comfortable saying it. Whats the right word here?

The sound of one hand fapping. A new work I rubbed out for the group exhibition, Art Wank 2. Curated by the glorious @cupco, the exhibition is tonight only, Wednesday 15 October, from 6pm at Tate Gallery Glebe. It’s going to feature work from a throbbing array of awesome talent, all centred around the theme of masturbation. So if you’re alone and bored in Sydney, put your pants back on, grab your box of tissues and head on down. #artwank2 #thetate #fapping #houlart #houl

This is what your skull looks like. Blue and squat, with a weirdly flat jaw. Deal with it, freak.

A quick little drawing from Fridays exhibition, still available. Hit me up if interested. #skull #invisibleskin #houlart #houl

Vutruvian Man rocking a thong. He’s just confident with his body and likes the way it makes him feel. Don’t judge him.

This was a brand new piece from last night, and still available for purchase. 
A big thanks to everyone who came along to the show with @mike__watt at @chopshopcanberra. A greatly reduced thanks to everyone who said they’d come but never did, leaving me standing there, a wilting rose clutched in my nervous hand, my heart beating a polyrhythm in my throat and your sweet name on my lips. You know who you are…

Dirty little exhibition sketches with @mike__watt, touching each other oh so gently. Feels so nice…

A brand new box for my markers, sectioned off and organised by size. I can barely contain myself. This is the sort of thing that gets me up in the morning, breaths life into my dusty bones and makes standing up straight in tight pants difficult.

Come and witness theis slightly obsessive glory in the flesh, or rather cardboard and plastic, at Darling Quarter tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday from 11am, as I team up with Luke Okay to run Kid’s Urban Art Workshops for Project Five.

Narwhal on wood, swimming in a sea of timber, a far cry from the Arctic seas it’s used to.

While it’s common knowledge that the narwhal’s tusk is actually an extended tooth, did you know that it’s always the left canine on the upper jaw, twisting in a left handed helix spiral through the lip? Not only this but about 1 in 500 males will have two tusks, and we still don’t know exactly what it’s actually for. Speculations include the tusk being a sexual characteristic, where size does indeed count, a weapon for shanking playas who be dissing, and breaking though the sea ice, given that one of the primary causes of death for Narwhals is suffocating when the sea ice freezes over. It’s not just art it’s education.
