Bligh plays in Sydney band Post Paint, recently capped off a month-long stint hosting a Bill Murray ‘Murrathon’ for Fringe Fest – and was banned from the internet this week for uploading an image of Tony Abbott with a really small dick.
This guy has also turned ‘stalking’ into a literal art. Earlier this year, Bligh decided to begin painting portraits of all his internet friends. I’m not sure what number he’s up to, but he’s made his way out of Sydney because I found one of my shady internet snaps turned into a neat little portrait the other week. Thought we’d return the favour by enlisting photographer Jack Toohey to turn up at Bligh’s Newtown terrance and trail him for a whole Sunday afternoon for our next SEQUENCE photo essay.
