Hi - I'm Milarky, and I'm an addict. 

I'm addicted to painting big walls, and together with BMD, we just painted one of New Zealand's biggest murals.

We communicated with NZShark Alliance and worked with the World Wildlife Fund to paint 190 sharks, representative of the amount of sharks slaughtered, most just for their fins, per minute worldwide. New Zealand is one of the big-bad-guys in this shocking statistic of unsustainable wasteful killing- so we wanted to help bring attention to it. We had less than a week's notice to mobilise and coordinate the project, and with the scale of it there was no time to organise any funding or support, so we approached this on a limb, though we're staunchly supportive of this cause so we went full force.

This being a fully self funded project, with its size it required a lot of resources, it emptied our pockets and depleted our paint stocks.  So this campaign is asking for help - for reverse-funding to get us mobilised again; to pay back the debts this project made [including the loans from our mum's] and primarily to restock our depleted paint supply. We're trying to get back to a position to continue to do what we do - painting big artworks on big walls to improve public space.

To show how serious we are about what we do, and to encourage your support, we're putting the most time invested and hard earned asset we have on the line.  My 5 year grown, fully vegetarian-fueled beard. Most people I know have not seen me without a beard, and I'm very proud of it. Though being able to keep painting big walls and pushing important messages with creative freedom is more valuable. 

..will you help us

..thankyou to everyone who pledged and supported us.


..a week ago my beard was removed. I feel like I lost my strength, though people were nice and my girlfriend said she was very happy. Thank's to my mum for cutting it in her Salon, Headzup, and all the people who took a turn to hack at it, my father for Shaving the last of it off, Andrew for Documenting, and the people that came to watch.



..by the start of next week we should of received all of the fund's and can begin our full replenish, moving forward confidently with our next BigWall endeavours.

..it'd be rad if everyone who pledged [StickerPack, MilarkySketch, AdoptAShark] could email me through their postal address and Name, then we can begin the organisation of sending your rewards out.


..again, much thank's to you, we appreciate your helping's a lot



love from, Milarky and BMD

..thank's and kinda nonthank's to everyone who helped us, we made our goal, we can pay our mum's back and recover a balance with the debt's from the Shark Wall. And it seem's the wall might of actually helped, it made it into a lot of media, and helped push awareness, weather our wall helped significantly or not we wont know, though the desired result was achieved as since then Shark Finning in New Zealand is officially on it's way to being banned.

..the PledgeMe end's in 8 hour's..  

..obviously anymore help would be appreciated, the more paint the more wall's..  yet just as we've began to organise our paint order's- we've also organised the day of the deed.  Blake Dunlop will be traveling, along with a needed support team, up to my mum Lisa Scott 's Hair Salon in New Plymouth later this week to film and document the removal. We'll release this Video when it's done, though for everyone who pledge'd we'll send an email with a password and let you see it a couple day's before it goes public.
