Very hard to capture an image of these eloquent paintings by King Rama VI, as its so dark in the Thai National gallery and you're not meant to take snaps, but they have 5-6 of these little gems.

You can get any sort of button or zipper you need in the fabric markets in Old Siam, or wigs plenty of wigs if you happen to be a short hair lady but want long hair for your wedding.
No one can deny these guys own the lakes and swampy bits here.

would like to see some music back in Melbourne, no backyard rock here all highrise pop

Is that a love heart or a large pair of maroon Reg Grundys spotted out of the taxi window.

sorry Scarlet, I could use those sultry eyes, 2010
this one worked ok, 2010

not sure why I painted Oliver Mann touching Heidi Yardleys face, 2010

One white guy who actually pulls of dreads is the late great Lewis Marnell. I watched this tribute on old skate friend Dale van Irsels blog. Dale I think drives to bring home the soy bacon these days so takes photos to keep entertained whilst on the road.

Monkeys pose nicely for Kalighat painters.

Most taxi drivers in Bangkok decorate the dash with a collection of Buddhas and flowers hanging from the mirror, so I was surprised to see this large funky homemade fly and Saint Elvis swingin around in this taxi.
