This is a photo of Gene and I together.
Paris is so so big and so so beautiful and so so overwhelming.
Gene and I made the ridiculous decision to catch the train from Berlin to Paris in the heat – we arrived sleep deprived and sticky.
Paris gets very hot1. We didn’t have the right clothes for the heat – I’m pretty sure we sweated out a few kilos! The food was amazing, the buildings were beautiful.
I’m a lucky duck.
I’ve been working on a commission for the new Grim Fandango’s gallery in Melbourne for a few weeks now and have finished it!
This drawing is done in pen and ink and is very different to my usual work. It was fun to make and thank you Matt for commissioning it!

In July 2009 Australian Artist Lily Mae Martin will be showing her first European exhibition ‘Mêlée’ in Berlin, Germany. Lily’s work draws on her recent journeys throughout Europe; from post-war Berlin to the hyper-sensitivity of security and terrorism in London. Lily portrays her subjects as confused, chaotic and frantically searching to grasp some form of control and stability within their world through her drawings and paintings.
I took me three days to finish this drawing. While I was in the process a friend accidentally spilt a very lagre glass of water all over it. It’s a good thing I use thick paper to draw on, because it dried and there was nothing wrong with it.
Thanks Gene for posing for me to do this – you’re an awesome model.
Szczecin in Poland is not too far from Berlin by train. We thought it would be novel to hop on and go to another country in just three hours.
From the windows we watched the world change from Germany to Poland and marveled at how different the buildings became.
I would love to see more of Poland one day.
