Hi mum! Welcome to the 'news' section of the website. No one needs to read this section (that's why it's a hidden page). The main purpose of this section is to document 'mini-EZ-milestones' for myself. There's nothing overly interesting here, I recommend leaving.
JUN/JUL 23 - ANDY HOOK ART FOR EROL!
Greatest honour of my artistic career so far! Andy Hook created some awesome Oddbodz art work for me (for a special occasion), but I wasn't expecting to see so many 'Hookified' EROL ZENDIS creations in the background! Please note this art is by ANDY HOOK (not Erol).Check out what Andy is up to these days with on his Instagram page.
JAN 23 - NEW ART/DECKS FOR MORBID SAINT!

Jan/Feb 22- 学校に戻る
sep - oct 21 - decks on display
EROL ZENDIS decks on display at The Little Café on Churchill. It’s a cool little café owned by cool people, and it’s next to a skate park. So, hanging up some decks and related artwork made sense. If you're in Adelaide during September - October, grab a coffee and check it out.

JAN 20 - EXCLUSIVE OH SEES POSTER for the festival that never was
A crazy-cartoon-infused design for a band that has heavily influenced the likes of Ty Segall, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard + many others... Thee: OH SEES. This music festival never took place due to COVID... and Colombus will probably be renamed 'Blinkytown' at some point this decade... Certainly one to add to your collection (a few prints left in the EZ warehouse + printed on the Erol Zendis Band Series range at boardpusher.com/erolzendis ).

APRIL 23 - ANDY HOOK(ODDBODZ ARTIST) VISITS EROL/ADELAIDE
ODDBODZ were a big part of my childhood.I used to draw the characters all the time. I got in touch with Andy Hook (the Oddbodz artist), and to my surprise he said he’d be more than happy to venture down to Adelaide and work with my students (Erol’s day job)! Apart from being ‘the legendary Oddbodz artist’, Andy is also a writer and illustrator of books and comics, including for the best-selling Zac Power: High Risk! He’s also a great person. While Andy was in Adelaide I got him to draw some ‘squiggles’ for me…. I then completed the drawing “Mr Squiggle style”. Just like Mr Squiggle’s drawings, this final piece can also be viewed UPSIDE DOWN, UPSIDE DOWN. Check out the work here (scroll to the bottom of the CREATURES page).
SINCE OCT 22- حقوق زنان & Vino senza merda DI SQUALO
