Here's a little excerpt quote and film from the NEW ERA lads.
Nowadays Steve Cross can be found operating out of the highly successful tattoo studio Korpus in Brunswick, Victoria, where he is co-owner. In this third video profiling Australian tattooists for New Era, Steve chats about his beginnings in graffiti and his transition into the B**** controlled world of Perth tattoo parlours during a time when tattooing was still underground and far from today's fashionable acceptance.

Thanks to the amazingly informative fashion blog- CUTE SUITE I have a small cameo.
Last August while chilling in Barcelona I was given the privilege to paint some brand new roller-shutters for an up and coming cafe/bar named CARAVELLE - A now beautiful venue in leafy C/ Pintor Fortuny 31, Barcelona.
Caravelle is the creation of Australian owner Zim Sutton. I met him through 2 friends of mine who were helping construct the interior of the place.
Zim told me he had moved to Barca some time ago, and after a good stint in London with a string of successful cafe/restaurant endeavors under his belt, he was itching to create something new and fresh for Barca, keeping in mind the old tradition of 'the meeting place'. A place were you can catch up with friends, have great conversations and watch Barcelona walk on by, and trust me, it doesn't always walk.
So if you're ever in his neck of the woods, check out the 2 birds I painted on ol' Zim's place Caravelle.
And even though I'm on the other side of the world I still check out his menu.
Well, it's been a while since I last posted (life's pretty busy these days) and I often think of this blog hating the fact that it's all alone.
So, here's a new post-
Instagram has become the new and easiest way for artists of all professions to expose themselves- No, not in that way, but in the way of instant image upload. I rejected it at first, thinking it's another "Thing" I have to keep on top of. Well, after about 7 months on, I've seen more amazing images, paintings and photos than ever before, and have also made many a friend. Yes, I've embraced it!!!
