Studio

A week ago I moved into this studio space on Rathdowne St, North Carlton. Great little room above a great little cafe. A big empty room at the minute but will be filling out as the year rolls on. Exciting times.

CALLING ALL WEB DESIGNERS

Drab needs a new home.

I am looking at launching a new website as a sort of online portfolio where I can showcase more of my art work and eventually sell prints of the illustrations I have been working on.

Must have a bit experience in this type of thing with knowledge in setting up an online store.

If you or someone you know is looking for a little paid freelance web work flick me an email to drab.art@gmail.com.

Cheers

Brunswick Mural, maybe.

I am designing a mural for a new cafe that will be opening up in brunswick in the next month or so. This was my first idea that I gave to them. I think he really liked it but was hesitant as its a little different from what you normally see around. I have another couple of ideas so hopefully he likes one of them enough for me to paint the side of his building. This will be my first major move into large scale paint work as well so I am very keen to get this gig.

100th Post!!!

Thank you to everyone over the past year who have supported me! I have received countless emails of encouragement not to mention all the amazing things people have said on this blog and to me in person. I feel as an illustrator and an artist I have come a long way over the past 12 months and it has been a pleasure to have you all here for the ride. I hope, moving forward, to keep you all coming back for more as I move into what is looking to be an amazing year for me creatively.

Updated image

After speaking with a friend thought this image was lacking a little depth so made a few minor changes. Think this one works a lot better.

Pasting

Ok so I have been out of the pasting game for a while now as have been busy with a bunch of other things but am eager to get back into it. Missing the buzz of seeing my drawings up around the place. Looking for a spot now to get the image above up now, looking to hopefully go bigger than I have ever gone. Watch this space.

To you....

Hi there,

Firstly a big thanks to everyone who continues to keep coming back to check out this website time and time again. Sorry for the lack of content over the past few weeks as I have been super busy with work and a few paying side projects (boring logo design stuff). Also having this Melbourne winter sucking the life out of me day by day has not been doing much for me creatively! This is all changing however as the days are getting warmer and the stockpile of new pasties I have built up (see above) are starting to call out for new homes in and around the streets of this city I call home.

Thanks again to all the drab fans out there

Alex Pardee

Alex Pardee is a US based artist/illustrator. I came across this guy through his blog on the UPPERPLAYGROUND webite and have become a huge fan ever since. His illustration work is unreal and his paintings or what you might call fine art works are even better. This guy is intensely talented and is living the kind of life I am trying to work towards. Here is a great link to a clip of him speed painting and also if your interested you can check out more of his work from his website here.

Much respect to this guy
