You can't go back home to your family, back home to your childhood, back home to romantic love, back home to a young man's dreams of glory and of fame, back home to exile, to escape to Europe and some foreign land, back home to lyricism, to singing just for singing's sake, back home to aestheticism, to one's youthful idea of 'the artist' and the all-sufficiency of 'art' and 'beauty' and 'love', back home to the ivory tower, back home to places in the country, to the cottage in Bermude, away from all the strife and conflict of the world, back home to the father you have lost and have been looking for, back home to someone who can help you, save you, ease the burden for you, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time – back home to the escapes of Time and Memory.
- Thomas Wolfe

OK, I have to move house in a few weeks, and some of my compulsively hoarded stuff has got to go.

With that in mind, I thought I'd cut down my stacks of extra prints, posters and original artworks by running a little giveaway on Instagram (@raychponygold) ... head over there and check it out, so I can get these artworks out of my cupboards and onto some people's walls!

The basic gist is to regram any of my work, tag it @raychponygold and #heyponygold, and you're done. I'll close it off at 12pm Saturday (Melbourne, Aus time).


OK, so I have some residual out-of-control-hurtling-through-space feelings that I think come from travelling and then trying to readjust to normal life, and then parting lots and then getting sick, and then being told we have to move house and contemplating moving back to the coast and then deciding to stay in the city. 

I am tired and I feel weird. 

But in among all this life-chaos was a really fun couple of days spent with the other Volcom Ambassadors in Melbourne -- we hung out, had a product night featuring a typography workshop with the super talented and equally ridiculous Gemma O'Brien (@mrseaves101), and put on an all-girls art show.

The pictures above are from the 'Girls, Girls, Girls' show at Juddy Roller gallery, and of my work that was in that show ... What an epic end to that particular stint of out-of-control creativity, connection and laughter. 

Also, thanks Life Without Andy for the cute pictures.

Here's a little sneak-peek/experiment/first ditch of something I'm working on in those little slivers of spare time that I occasionally glimpse. Hopefully I can make a bit of progress on this over the summer, and put all the results in the one place for people to look at. 
I don't want to say too much about it yet, just that it's a project that means a lot to me, has generated a lot of familial laughter so far, and is very close to home.
