My mate Gibbo.
This is a portrait of my mate Gibbo, with a bunch of his toys, dinosaurs & music pedals he has collected at his house.
Gibbo is part owner of a pub in town, a place that’s made a whole lot of misfits feel at home in Hobart. I would of left the state along time ago if it wasn’t for him convincing me to stay & even renovating the bar so I could reach the top shelf!
I see him as someone in touch with their inner child. One night at the pub (after closing) we used the bar and bench tops to get around, pretending the floor was hot lava.
He likes to party, dance, work n play. He’s my mate & I love him.
