If you're in Sydney, come check out my boyfriend's show in Redfern on Thursday:

James Jirat Patradoon, the 25-year-old Sydney-based artist and illustrator, is known primarily for his neon screenprints and stylised digital work. With HEARTACHES, he shifts into a more organic and personalised gear. Using a bold kind of reverse engineering, HEARTACHES presents a taut exploration of authenticity and identity in the form of massive graphite-on-canvas drawings. Informed by Patradoon's observations of pop constructions of masculinity and of self-representation in a post-convergence culture, HEARTACHES is a sometimes bleak, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, but always insightful personal critique.

HEARTACHES opens at Boutwell Draper on Thursday 23 September from 6pm - 8pm, and runs in tandem with Ben Frost's ART OF NOISE until October 23.

Wed - Sat 11am - 5pm

(Also, he's just babin'.)

I *think* the above vest is this one - It looks infinitely better open.

Whenever I see a fluffy sheepskin rug I just want to rip off my clothes and roll around in it. Similarly, when I see a shearling jacket on someone, I want to rip off their clothes and run away. Yes, similar.

Firstly, my iphone 4. SUCH TECHNOLOGY!! I have never actually owned an un-plastic mobile phone, so having a phone that has significantly more features than an alarm is a shock to the system. The default map app entertained me for a while as I zoomed in and out of suburban Sydney. I sit at work, feeding my virtual birds and it's like my 8th grade obsession with my tamagotchi all over again.

Secondly, these YSL boots. I picked them up at the post office 15 minutes ago, and I have to pinch myself to really believe that they're here and they're MINE! There is a semi epic story behind these, but lets just say there were some strongly worded ebay conversations, and I am grateful they made it here without harm.

Seeing Dita Von Teese tonight for her "Be Cointreauversial" show! Will be wearing my best nipple tassles in her honour. Can't wait!
