After the ABC comes Jez and Dougz …

Following ABC Sunshine Coast’s radio interview, today I had the great pleasure of discussing aspects of the spectrum and my art with Jez and Dougz on their 3WBC 94.1FM radio show, On The Spectrum, which is broadcasted across inner-east Melbourne and accessible online.

A great thank you to Jez and Dougz for allowing me on the show.

Martin Robinson’s journey from autism to art

My contribution to awareness is done! Thank you to all that allowed me to tell part of my life’s story to date for a positive influence.

Quietly pushin’ on …

A lull of magnitude nine (amount of weeks in-between!) in blog proceedings, however stuff has been a-happenin’ here at Woody’s Studio.

Participating once again in the Immanuel Arts Festival for 2018, which is held in late May, followed with entering into the Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing to have a chance of being a finalist in August.

Home run! Caricatures for another wedding! This time for a lovely couple in Canada who just love their baseball team of the Toronto Blue Jays. A portrait commission has also come my way, where I can utilise my continual practise with soft pastels.

The next quirky installment of Woody and the Schlock Gang is to be released in the next week or so, and soon, a chance to find out what each of the characters are about – in the most unlikely of places around the Sunshine Coast! Keep those homo sapien eyes peeled …

The Brain of Mr Downes

2018 begins with a ‘flu virus and a lot of figuring out on what could shape this year for Woody’s Studio. Recently, however, I had the great pleasure of having a coffee with the one and only Mr Christopher Downes – one of Australia’s illustrating and cartooning extraordinaires and 3-times nominated finalist at Australia’s 2017 Stanley Awards (‘Oscars’ for Australia’s professional cartooning and illustration peoples).

A good hour was spent on picking his brains about the industry and himself, along with plenty of sound advice. Truly grateful and very thankful for his time and effort. Hopefully, I can make it to the 2018 Stanley Awards and learn even more from him and others.

Thank you, Mr Downes. You can have your brain back now.

A state of adhesive despair!

When every dollar is stretched and there’s the need for adhesive envelope labels. Scraps are begged for. The desperation is real …

The state of a yo-yo, yo …

What has eventuated the last few weeks? A completion of a caricature for one thing. A revamp underway on the online presence of Woody’s Studio. Completing steward duties for Architects of Air’s Arboria Luminarium, as part of the Horizon Festival held here, on the Sunshine Coast (Queensland, Australia). Incredible colour sensory overload. Unfortunately, this has resulted in contracting a virus. Joy. Oh, well, fortis in arduis.

A start been made on work for the upcoming Celebration of the Female Form exhibition, which may, or may not be a tad cheeky …

Amongst all this, this creative mind is one of a yo-yo state … the end of the year is approaching and decisions need to made when ‘drifty’ has come in to roost. Does that make sense?
