For all those artists and graffiti artists out there that might be wanting some extra coin..and i only mean a LITTLE extra coin as Airtasker takes 15% off the agreed fee, Airtasker is proving a good little regular earn. You will need to renegotiate the price but please do as alot of people dont know what to pay a graffiti artist to do something and are open to being helped with throwing a price on the table. I have “over quoted” (thats what airtasker calls it when you quote back at the person wanting the work with a real price) on all of my jobs and the airtasker is always been ageeable to the reasonable alternate fee. Dont get greedy or youll wreck it for all the rest of us just trying to do what we love but get a reasonable price for our work,time and skill.

Here is a canvas job I took on right before xmas. In fact I delivered it Xmas day so the client could take it overseas as a gift for his friend Helene. Merry Xmas Helene. I hope you like your canvas! 🙂

What a way to start the new year!

Out of the blue, I received an email enquiry from Tony of Ferguson Street Provisions cafe in Williamstown VIC.

“Could I paint their inside wall as a feature, in a short time period for a reasonable price?”

He explained that they had had other quotes from artists Id never heard of for astronomical amounts so he was already expecting my reply. I went down, sized up the wall and we talked about what he and the family ‘saw’ on this feature wall of their much loved family business. After I showed them a couple of examples of styles, and showed them more of my style and work, we agreed on the elements they wanted included and I went away to brainstorm a couple design drafts for them to approve.

 

This was a new kind of challenge for me as I’m not used to having the assistance of a projector for precision and efficiency but after this job will definitely think about utilising one for indoor, limited time, food prep area type jobs,  that’s for sure!!

It was a dream!!

And weirdly, after 4 hours of painting , my hands were pretty much paint free!!! (and anyone who knows me KNOWS that THAT is unheard of!! Even when I’m NOT painting! 😉  )

This wall is a bit different -style wise for me and in all honesty I loved the challenge of doing something a bit different but with the same SEARious flavour!

A HUGE thank you to Tony and his beautiful family. I’m so chuffed that you love the wall and I look forward to dropping in to sample some of your works of culinary art!

Graham Street Port Melbourne gets a makeover!

For years the residents of Graham St. and its surrounds, have voiced their concerns regarding the safety and ‘ugliness’ of the Graham St. underpass and now skatepark. The dark and dingy thoroughfare for light rail commuters and the recreational area for the young people of Port Melbourne has been an ongoing concern that has either been put in the ‘too hard’ basket or just ignored….UNTIL NOW! Port Phillip council recently hired 8 of Melbourne’s prolific graffiti artists and youth mentors to give the area under the Graham St bridge a colourful makeover. Launching TODAY (29th November 2014) from 2pm-5pm, the finished artworks have transformed the area from an antisocial, intimidating hovel to a welcoming, bright, colourful, fun and safe feeling space that the youth of the area can call ‘home’ when away from home.

I finished 2 complete pillars on my own and collaborated with the amazingly talented artist (and my treasured friend) D.ROQ -(formerly known as ISIS) on another 4.

Community feedback over the 2 weeks of painting was nothing but positive! People tend to forget how much we are affected by our environments…changes WILL affect moods and behaviour.

If you have a neglected area in your neighbourhood that you think could do with a colour blast, contact me or your local council and get them to contact me at searious.jones@gmail.com.
