STUDIO SALE


I'm having a massive clean out of the studio and have put some of my work up for sale.
The mailing list subscribers have had their first dibs, but there are still a few of my favourites available, plus I'll be adding a few bits more in the coming days.
One of a kind pieces, test prints, old jobs, and artists proofs.
BARGAINS!
Thanks to sales so far we've been able to donate to petsinthepark.org.au a great charity run to give veterinary assistance to homeless pet owners.

Visit the sale shop here.

Rural Fire Service

By way of saying a very small thank you and to raise funds to help support the  Rural Fire Service, I've got some postcard sized one of a kind prints available for the next week. Priced at $50 each, all proceeds bar shipping and paypal costs will go to a donation.
This amazing group of volunteers have a very hard fire season ahead of them. Already battling massive blazes in the Blue Mountains where my Aunt and her family live, they work tirelessly to save property and lives.
Available here.

True Self



I'm very proud to have been asked to once again to contribute to Melbourne GPO's True Self exhibition in aid of the charity Fitted for Work, who do a stirling job by assisting women entering the workforce, by mentoring and securing them employment.
Once again the brief was collaborative, but this time it was to be in conjunction with a photographer. I was incredibly honoured to be paired with the dynamic duo of LOVEWANT magazine, Bec Parsons and Bart Celestiono.
The pictures above are part of the creative process.
I screen printed and drew onto laser cut shaped perspex,mixing some of Becs photographs of blossoms and figures alongside linear geometric shapes. The pieces slotted together to create a large 2metre sculpture that Bec and Bart went on to photograph.
The final A0 framed large format photograph will be unveiled on the opening night and will be for sale alongside nine other creative pairings, some of whom I'm completely biased towards because they're friends.
Private view is on the 30th of May from 6.30pm, opening from the 31st. Find all the details here.

Desktop Magazine

Many thanks to Heath Killen for another Desktop magazine spot for an article on Tibor Kalman.
A hugely inspiring gentleman, much missed in the creative world and whom was a ubiquitous design presence for my college years as editor of the groundbreaking COLORS magazine.

Desktop Magazine

As always, it's great to work with friends especially when it comes to my favourite editor Heath Killen.
Two pieces for Desktop Magazine - the first from the new edition of out this week and the second from last months special focusing on print process and paper.

New Prints







Attempting to fit some personal work in amongst editorial jobs, I've worked hard to change things up a bit, working through some of the ideas I came up with for Dion Lee and taking them further. Turning a flat 2d linear shape into a 3d photgraphic image into a series of 7 different handpulled silkscreen prints, each an edition of only 15, available from next week.

Bob Evans


I've just finished working with Bob Evans, alter ego of Kevin Mitchell, lead singer of Jebediah and member of Basement Birds. Seriously good fun to work. Spec for the single cover was astronauts - what's not to love about a job like that?! Album and cover will be out in a month or so...

Sad to read of the death of Helen Nicoll, who was one of the main motivators in encouraging me to read.

Write a letter!




Since I've been making notebooks for the last 10 years, I thought it may be about time to expand my repertoire to include a few other stationary products - keeping my hands busy and away from the tv remote control in quiet times at work.
Last week it came to fruition - handprinted and handmade cards and envelopes. Old fashioned in style but rewarding in purpose - you can write on them.... WITH A PEN! 
See the selection here and get free shipping until the 3rd of October with the code E6QVCA.
Stockists include Koskela, QT Hotel, Sydney and more in the coming weeks.

Brisbane




A whirlwind 36 hours in Brisbane was pretty amazing.
After a fantastic nights sleep in the Emporium hotel (wow, could get used to that - pillow menu?!) and  giving a talk at breakfast alongside Rick of Frank Creates (apologies if you were there and could hear my knees knocking together from terror), I had the first proper afternoon off in months that didn't involve a pile of laundry or dirty dishes. Having only a couple of hours I headed to the art galleries and saw the exhibition from the Prado and then onto GOMA, which I loved. An amazing space with beautiful art. Thanks to the Design Institute of Australia for arranging it all, it was really special and Leesa Hickey of DesignFront for your kind hospitality.


8 Aug 2012

In equal measure, I'm hugely excited and hideously terrified.
I'll be part of a morning seminar for the Design Institute Australias 'Bubble and Speak' program.
Alongside sign writer Rick Hayward of Frank Creates we'll each be giving a brief talk about what we do and why we do it, followed by a Q&A. If you're in Brisbane come on in (6.45am start... OUCH!) and have some breakfast.

Mens Health



Weirdly enough, the whole family missed out on Olympic selection for any sport, including caustic humour and ruthless fridge inhalation.
We even missed the opening ceremony which I was a bit gutted by - 5am start? Optimistic in our household.
I managed to sneak in an editorial spread though for Mens Health magazine, full of eye popping colours.
Out now amongst pages of some very chiselled 6 packs and other manly bits that I know not the names of.

17 Jul 2012


We were lucky enough to have the loan of a friends house on Pearl Beach a couple of weeks ago - I had never been there before, it's a very beautiful spot in the world, even in the blustery rain.
We took copies of the keys and hope to sneakily move in whilst no ones looking.

26 Jun 2012



It's not often that I get a hugely open brief for editorial - let alone for a cover, but the jacket of the excellent slow journalism magazine Delayed Gratification was mine for this quarter. 
The brief was set around the theme of looking back to look forward plus add in a little chaos.
The current issue hit the UK newsstands or is available online from the 25th of June.
It's a great magazine, highly recommended for its thoughtful and interesting content.

True Self

I took part in the collaborative exhibition TRUE SELF  to benefit the charity Fitted for Work last month.
Fitted for Work a not-for-profit initiative, providing clothing and training to help disadvantaged women find employment. To date they have transformed the lives of more than 6500 women.
I collaborated with Lachlann Conn and David Bromley to create the two A3 pieces below, which have both sold (fantastic!).
The exhibition is on till the 24th June at the Melbourne GPO building.

A favourite

It's been a long time neglected for this blog, in my defence I have been caught up in a whirlwind of activity with talented, charming and incredibly good looking clients for the last three months that have been a mix of fashion, editorial and a well known sneaker brand.
I know it's not proper to chose a favourite, so I'd say that the one that I've spent the longest on and has just come to fruition is designing the prints for the Australian fashion designer Dion Lee who will be showing in London in September. Press day was last week, but the look book is still not public, so here's some pics from instagram via Dion, Russh Magazine and Oyster Magazine. It's been so enjoyable I haven't wanted it to finish - it really didn't feel like 'work'.
Digital prints, embossed neoprene, light reflective geometrics and hand screenprinted neoprene and silk.
It's been an honour to work with such a talented team.

Yup, it's been my favourite pastime of this quarter.

Modern Times Pop Up 3


If you're in Melbourne this Friday and like mid century furniture, Modern Times will be opening up for a third time with a pop up shop with beautiful mid century Danish pieces and a selection of work from Australian artists and designers. I'm hugely honoured to be a part of their selection, alongside Maddi and have 4 framed (Thanks Ryan at United Measures!) silkscreen prints available through them. 
Check out the available pieces here... but be quick, it will sell out fast!

Dinner

Last week I downed tools for an evening and caught up with Matt, Chris and met Maricor and Maricar and Sam Hoh for the first time.
Food was great and the company was even better.






Between the four of them they've inspired me to start drawing again.
