Super excited to be going to ACDC + Wolfmother in Feb next year. Saturday night concert, down in the mosh pit. Does it get any better?! And it'll be my very first concert - I held off going til something special came along. Guess I'm just that kind of girl.

In Arty news:
> Hungry Like the Wolf ends this Saturday. It's at 19Karen on the Gold Coast, QLD. There are loads of fabulously talented artists that I'm delighted to hang my work with. Don't miss it!
> Finished the painting for the CD cover for No More Heroes, waiting on approval and any further direction. She was very stubborn about coming out on to the canvas, but she's worth the wait. (preview below, because you know I love you)
> The works from the We Love Ladies Too exhibition are still at 696, either in their stockroom or rotating. The large piece (Tiger by the Tail) is sold, but I believe the two smaller, gaming oriented pieces are still available.
> Commencing work tommorrow on a piece for an upcoming art prize. Involves teacups and a bloody nose.
> Have half a dozen secret compartment books either completed or partly completed. Randomly sketching designs for shoe phones.
