Sun, surf and kangaroos..



Oh yes I do see a shark fin there but we won't talk about that :) In Leederville for a super fun Fringe World event yesterday afternoon I was delighted to come across the 'couldn't be more Aussie than this' mural in the distinctive neon glow styling of Drew Straker, last seen here using the same technique to create a negative effect. Down a laneway off Oxford Street the Straker glow beckoned :) pretty cool don't you think! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  27. Neon lights used tone quite commonplace, but not so much anymore. These particular lights brings lots of interest to the murals. imaginative and creative endeavours seem to be almost endless!
