Unforgettable Meating

Vlado Gregurek, iconic owner of Vlado's restaurant in Bridge Road, Richmond, has passed away today.

Vlado opened his first restaurant in 1964 in Collingwood which quickly gained a reputation as one of the best steakhouses in Melbourne and Australia.
I had the pleasure of dining with Paul Taylor, David Flynn, and Ian Wong, when we took Syd Mead and Roger out for the best steak in Australia recommended buy our good friend Tom Matano.
Cheers Vlado for an unforgettable feast.

Creating Concepts

After the quick speed sketch its easy to creat new concepts by evolving the sketch with some new layers...change the colour by locking the transparency of the colour layers...creat new shapes on one side of sketch to see if they work... explore new surfaces remember these are only concepts for a later finished sketch

The first snow on Mt Buller which we overlook from our farm in the high country inspired me to add some to one of my Sketchbook pro sketches

Well done

Because the work was so good I decided to award a prize for the best camera concept sketch, showing their ability to explore forms and surface, which then caused a headache because there was so many excellent concept sketches so after consulting a few of my fellow lectures I awarded the prize to Patrick Goslar. Patrick recieved a special artists proof of one of my limited edition art prints "sandcastles" which was part of my very succesful beach art series
