FULL LINE UP: ART BY DALE, MUCHOS, SINDY SINN, MIKE WATT, SHIDA, IROK, DIZZY LITTLE DOTTY, MAD CROOK, MAID, MICKY HORA, MASONRIE, TORI-JAYE MORDEY, CRISIS, ZOO KEEPER, LUSID ART, HARLEY AND HANDEN, INK BOY, LACEY, MARK RICHARDSON, JOEL MCDONALD, BILLIE SCHNEIDER, QUINCY MIKE, SHVMVN, ADAM AVERY, TUCKS ONE, JOE O'TOOLE, ERIC BRUCKNER, MATTE & LUCKS.

We catch up with one of the feature artist's from the show, and a new comer to the gallery walls - Sydney based illustrator / creepy character creator, Mike Watt. 

CC: Tell us about the piece you’re creating for No Such Luck - what’s the story behind it?

MW: I was a massive horror movie nerd when I was younger and Jason from Friday the 13th was my favourite character. When I got the brief all I could think of was Jason, I think he's probably already a sign of bad luck but I covered him with bits of broken mirror just to be sure.

CC: What materials did you use to create it? 

MW: Mostly acrylic on water colour paper, there's a tiny bit of whiteout and biro in there too. 

CC: Are you superstitious, if so - what of? 

MW: I'm not that superstitious, but at the same time I'm really paranoid, so I avoid opening umbrellas inside and every thing I can just in case. 

CC: What should you be afraid of on Friday 13th? 

MW: Jason.

CC: What’s the most unlucky thing that’s ever happened to you?

MW: I think it's really unlucky to drop food. It sucks on so many levels, you loose your meal and then you have to clean up. It's the worst.
