July I spent a few weeks in Alice painting a 50m wall, Many thanks to Ironlak for the paint sponsorship. Thanks to Matty Day for organising and painting on this massive project, It was an amazing experience on many levels, especially to work along side local painter Phil McCormack.
Initially we were going to avoid the dreamtime stories sowe didnt step on any toes, but Phil was the spiritual guide and ended up including a special Echidna at the request of local painter Margaret Scobie to honour her Dreaming animal. Many thanks to the mayor for signing off the permit so quickly, to Phil’s teenage nephew Jessy for painting the volcano, to Lister for the iphone-arang concept, to kirst-eye for the mega-fauna giant aussie dinosaur animal concept, and to Owen Coles of Yeperenye for the funding.

I painted this flag at Phils town camp Nyewente Trucking Yards Community, and this carcass somewhere in the desert south of Alice.
Thanks to Inspire 9 – Richmond for inviting me to their ping pong room to paint hallucogenic hibiscuses pollenating cloud-9 butterfly auras.
