  1. Google said I look like a man in tights

    2020-03-25 22:34:00 UTC

    Unfortunately, quarantine doesn’t look good on everyone Only a few days into quarantine and already bemoaning the boredom?  It’s a perfect opportunity to clean out the roof gutters or sequinned disco outfits you never wear, but for some reason you’re “just not feeling it”?  I have a solution.  Mr Slager…

  2. Graphite: what is it? It isn’t lower back pain

    2020-03-18 22:48:50 UTC

    Like activated almonds served on a bed of brown rice, my blog topics arise organically.  Occasionally there’s a rhyme and reason to what I write about, other times, I divulge absurdities that are best left for a therapist.  Today I bring you both rhyme and reason.  Somebody recently told me…

  3. Artwork feature: Chip bandit

    2020-03-11 22:30:01 UTC

    Seagulls. If they’re not pooping on our heads, they’re stealing our chips.  Has this been your experience? Whole pieces of fish, ice creams, iPhones, slow moving children. These feathered thieves don’t discriminate. It’s all theirs for the taking! I’ve never had anything stolen by a seagull, but I remember the…

  4. The great pyramid scheme - commission

    2020-02-27 03:00:00 UTC

    Well, who do we have here then! For the sake of brevity, because he likes a lot of superfluous letters in his surname, we’ll call him by his first name - Steve.  ‘Steve’ - graphite drawing by Candace Slager Who is Steve? As you can see from the picture, he…

  5. Artwork feature: It’s alright once you’re in

    2020-02-26 22:15:14 UTC

    As 27 February is International Polar Bear Day, I thought it would be remiss not to revisit my graphite polar bear piece ‘It’s alright once you’re in’ ‘It’s alright once you’re in’ - by Candace Slager There’s no grand activist story behind my decision to draw a polar…

  6. How to be a professional artist - the day I headlined for Duran Duran

    2020-02-19 23:19:27 UTC

    Ok so I wasn’t expecting a part 2 but here it is.  I was once again taken aback, this time by a phone call asking for an interview on ABC Radio Gold Coast drive time. The team had been contacted about my Art Lovers Australia win for ‘This is not

  7. How to be a professional artist - the day I became a selfie star

    2020-02-12 02:59:38 UTC

    I thought I’d amuse myself and share my latest art studio escapades Having only recently moved into this house, my studio is still looking a little barren. I don’t have use for easels, drop cloths, trestle tables, racks of canvases and the like, so everything is fairly minimal and compact.…

  8. Artwork feature: When is a Roman soldier not a Roman soldier?

    2020-02-05 23:42:31 UTC

    Here is my piece ‘Do you have change for a denarius?’ What would you say is depicted here? Roman centurions or Roman Legionnaires ‘Do you have change for a denarius?’ by Candace Slager Surprisingly, it’s neither of those. The secret lies in which century you live. These are actually fake…

  9. New art: Skipping from the hips, a lesson in being a cow!

    2020-01-24 07:50:25 UTC

    Huzzah! Here is my latest colour pencil piece First, I must tell you a silly story.  ‘Cow corner’ - colour pencil on watercolour paper For locals on the Gold Coast you will know these cows pretty well. A random farmyard in the middle of udder suburbia (sorry). A remnant of…

  10. 7 Tips for looking after your artwork

    2020-01-16 22:00:00 UTC

    As a fair skinned gal living in a part of Australia where it is hot and humid, with most days reaching a UV index of 13 (Extreme), I can appreciate good weather protection. I wear SPF50 sunscreen 363 days, and a light jacket the other two.  Artwork is an investment…

  11. “How do you do that?”

    2020-01-09 22:00:00 UTC

    “How do you do that?”. Sometimes people ask me this when they see my drawings. I have no doubt they are being complimentary and see something great in what I do. My response? I shrug and say “Thanks. I don’t know. I just kind of…do it”.  Yep. Real helpful I…

  12. Shipwrecked in the Med and other nonsense about me

    2020-01-02 22:00:00 UTC

    The Med. Corfu to be precise. Serene isn’t it. Or is it? What you will get on my blog… I started this blog as an extension of my work as an artist. As I’m the introvert, likes cats better than people type, my drawings don’t always express who I am.…
