If you've not heard of Ali J from WA, Australia, where have you been? This talented Australian illustrator has recently had one of her stunning pieces appear on a t-shirt without her permission... rather than hear it second hand from me please take the time to visit her blog.

Located on Victoria Parade just up the road from the Queen Victoria Market. You could easily stop by and check out some amazing art work, do some shopping at the market, grab a delish coffee at one of the many near by cafes and head home to make a yummy meal with the fresh produce you just bought, that you could share with a few close friends.
Offering a vast selection of pieces from established, new and emerging Australian and International contemporary artists.
Opened last week with their first exhibition "The Forty Thieves". After a day snapping up bargains on Smith street, this is the must have stop before venturing onto Brunswick street to indulge in great food, music and drink.
In the heart of the city at QV there is not only the art works to check out, there is shopping, movies, food, drinks, music, theatre and more. Next time you are in the CBD this is something to add to your must visit list!
This gallery aims to be the link between artist run and commercial art spaces.

"An exhibition of concertina books made from hand cut lino prints with dry point etching. 'Your Homepage' is a collection of dialogue gathered from eaves dropping into people¹s conversations. Today, the internet has become a
device where people¹s private affairs are readily available for viewing in a way that almost seems intrusive. What was once a privilege is now an open invitation to view people¹s thoughts and secrets. I create a World Wide Web and weave the text into maps, buildings and human figures giving an architecture to the virtual space. Your Homepage is a set of concertina books, where you can click on each page to find another secret revealed."

Well I want to add to that list but with something not driven by fashion fads, sponsorship or any other influence. Here is a small list of things that I enjoy most about the winter months:
1. Drinking hot chocolate
2. How green the garden looks
3. Wearing boots, coats, jackets, scarves and gloves.
4. Going for a surf and not having the crowds that occur over summer (yes, it's cold, but that's what my 4/3 wetsuit and booties are for)
5. Curling up in bed watching movies and eating pop corn
7. Coming in from the cold into a nice warm pub/bar/lounge
8. Going to snow for some snow boarding
9. Puddles... they remind me of being a child.
10. If you do get caught in the rain coming home and getting change into some nice dry clothes.

- Origami, this is a recent thing of mine that well I think I suck at but enjoy it none the less. (With recycled paper of coarse)
- Sort through that file on desk top titled - sort, stuff, don't know ect.
- Pull all my books out of my bookcase, give it a good dust and put them all back in. I find that after doing this its looks heaps neater.
- Email a few random friends I've not seen or spoken to for a while.
- Flip my mattress... Like want you're meant to do with tyres, is to rotate them... Same with your mattress. I do this every time I wash my sheets, to help prolong the life of the mattress and to allow for even wear; which results in a comfy nights sleep.

Maliscious is on his next project - by popular demand for more of the “Fuck Your China Made Surfboard” series, which is raising awareness related to preserving and keeping surfboard manufacturing in the united states rather than overseas, he needs pictures from all the ladies out there!
“This is not about race - it is about people selling out our surfing heritage and industry for money!”
They don’t just want any pictures though - you have to flip off the camera - it can be just you or a group of you (girls only). You can be as normal or done up as you like - you can be as sexy or slutty as you like. You can be naked if you like - in your work clothes if you like - do as you wish - you just have to be flipping the bird - middle finger in the air - so do what ever you feel. Doesn’t matter! But you have to flipping the bird!
All the photos are going to be on a “Fuck Your China Made Surfboard” collage that is going to be made into a fabric. The fabric is going to get laminated on to the decks of three surfboards that are going to be on display in various locations!
So please take a minute to snap the photo of yourself or have someone else take it and send it to edit industries myspace page!
Either in a message or comment just so they can copy it or if you already have one send them the link.
The boards/project is scheduled to be done by June 25th!!
This is a worthy project as the passion and lifestyle of surfing cannot be manufactured. Even though I’m from Australia I support the message that they are sending. My board was shaped for me and I just love it. You cannot get that from a dime a dozen board made in a sweat shop out of plastic.
