Johny and Dave - the history

To my old, new and potential Red Bubble friends – especially those who have followed Johnny and Dave over the months and now years – here’s a bit of a Johnny and Dave explanation and context

I’ve been described as a visual poet. I have an arts background in design, photography and performance. I am also a writer and a community health worker. I am impacted by homophobia and see its effect around me daily.

I created ‘Johnny and Dave’ in 2009. They have helped me re-think myself as an artist in Sydney. They have given me a voice, a gift which I endeavour to honour.

This project began with a Red Bubble challenge in 2009 and quickly became a journey. These photographs are probably the only record of this inner-city love story between two

I've been published! ...um and Johnny and Dave have too

Great news. I’ve been published…online.

Johnny and Dave have caught the eye of “Verity La” and they love the J&D love story so much they have published some of it!

Verity La is an on-line creative arts journal, publishing short fiction and poetry, cultural comment, photomedia, and review. Bravery is essential in the Verity La neck of the woods, which means creative risk-taking, freedom, and – above all else – being no one but yourself.

Go to the site and know that Johnny and Dave will one day be a household name…um names. Love you all.
