As if his dress sense was not embarrassing enough, DJW takes this extremely haggard and worn sketch book accompanied by children’s colouring in pencils wherever he goes. Social shame aside, the drawings that flow onto the pages despite bringing into question DJW’s mental state, are phenomenal. We have decided to start sharing with you some of the raw concepts that emerge from the bent and twisted mind of this artist... Buckle up and enjoy.
He is at Kirra Cultural Centre until 4pm today and from 10am-2pm on Sunday. ... See MoreSee Less
