Hands up if you miss Heath Ledger! Or should we say ‘Two Hands’ up, because that’s the Aussie feature film with our vote in this week’s Stellar countdown.
Two Hands was the winner of a swag of accolades in the 1999 Australian Film Institute awards (Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and Best Editing) and boasts a cracker cast and a zippy storyline that stays with you for years. Much of its success is attributable to writer and director Gregor Jordan (@greggypants1966) who made his feature debut with the film.
The story revolves around Heath’s character (Jimmy) who is asked by local mob boss Pando (played by Bryan Brown) to delivery $10k cash to a woman in Bondi. When he goes for a dip in the ocean and the loot is stolen by two street kids, Jimmy knows he’s in major trouble, so he plans a bank robbery in order to return the money to Pando.
Chaos of the finest order ensues in this crime comedy, which traverses Sydney locales and sees characters crossing paths in darkly hilarious and deadly circumstances.
Two Hands also stars the eternally fabulous @maryrosebyrne as Jimmy’s love interest (Alex), and anyone who was around in the day will remember the hauntingly beautiful @powderfinger_bandofficial song ‘These Days’ which headlined a soundtrack that included @therealkateceberano and Crowded House.
Revisiting the superbly talented Heath as he makes one big mistake in this ripper film is one of the best things you could do.

A lot of love and research went into this image that I will be showing @artericca_exhibition from this Friday onwards. It is the 2nd (of 10) Edition as I donated the 1st to the @fremantlefashioncollective (these will be on sale soon, details to come).
This gorgeous creature is a Freo Girl of course, she loves to collect mid-century ceramics and dress in natural fibres like linen. I spent hours cross hatching the fabric so that it resembled the coarse yet supple behaviour of linen. The print on the dress is sourced from a French Wallpaper and she clutches her favourite blooms - what girl doesn't love a tonne of fresh flowers?! Her hair was painted with Carbon Black Ink with a stiff Chinrese Brush then cut up and collaged into a stylish quiff. Chrysanthemums are tucked into her hair....and acacia blossoms float around her...Her sparkling ring is hand embellished with metallic silver ink by hand. Had to show a "bit" more of this image...especially for those who of course can't make it to the exhibitions.... Thank-you all for your generous comments and encouragement...I have been overwhelmed with everyone's responses....I can't wait to draw more! Also, as a result of this image catching the attention of the one and only divine @therealkatecebrano I will soon be doing a portrait of Australia's finest songstress. I'm on cloud 9!

When I was about 21 I went to a clairvoyant. I was really lost and felt like everyone knew what they wanted to do with their lives except me. She asked me if I do something with my voice - singing? I shyly said no, but I was in a band at the time and told her I love making music. Then she asked me about visual stuff… she was sure the two related somehow. I didn’t know, so I just sat quietly and waited. Until she laughed and said, “Oh I see now! You’ll be photographing musicians!” 📷 I snapped of @therealkateceberano Happy weekend!
