Etsy Christmas Pop-Up!

Tomorrow is the last day of the Etsy Christmas Pop-Up Shop in Sydney!!
I'm super excited that Milk and Cookies was selected to feature at the event.
Etsy has been running craft workshops, cocktail tastings, even free haircuts! Not to mention, showcasing some of Australia's best handmade designs. I'm very chuffed to be featured alongside so many kickass designers.
If you are in Sydney, tomorrow is your last chance to check it out, so get down to 74 Castlereagh St in the Sydney CBD.

If, like me, you are not in Sydney, you'll have to just drool over the pics by following the #etsypopup hashtag on instagram!

Holy moly! There are my 3 prints bottom right. Picture by @ichel09 on instagram


Colour Box Studio Summer Pop Up

You can now find my prints and cards stocked at Colour Box Studio's Summer Pop Up Shop!!
Colour Box Studio is a Community Creative Hub and Pop Up Creative Space in Footscray, Melbourne, run by the unstoppable filmmaker and creative, Amie Batalibasi
Every month this past year, Amie has changed the theme and focus of the space, running programs ranging from photography, filmmaking, writing and public art, with events, exhibitions and workshops running year round. All this, while being independently funded and volunteer run! 
Now in it's last month at this address, Colour Box is hosting a pop up shop, showcasing 20 local artists and designers. I'm happy to be one of the designers showcasing my work at Colour Box.

Colour Box Pop Up is on until November 21.


Sign Painters Trailer

With the proliferation of printed signs, the trade of traditional sign painting has been dying out. I love the older painted signs... commercial graphics made by a craftsman's hand. This new doco about sign painters looks amazing!


Mega post

Hello dear readers, 
It's been so long between posts! Here's a quick round-up of what I've been up to. 

My prints and cards are now stocked at Kids in Berlin in North Melbourne! I used to love visiting this shop when I lived in the neighbourhood (ah, memories!), it's awesome and surreal to see my prints in their front window!

Colour Box Pop Up Shop Launch night
I also participated in the Colour Box Studio Pop Up shop in Footscray just before Xmas! 
The studio's director, Amie Batalibasi is an amazing ideas woman, and is doing great things at the studio! Each month she's converting it into a totally different space. The first month was the craft pop-up shop, the second month revolved around digital media, and next month will be fashion! There are workshops on every week relating to the theme of the month, exhibitions and happenings. It's an awesome new space in Melbourne.

I went to an amazing exhibition called "Sets for a Film I'll Never Make" by Daniel Agdaga cardboard artist, stop-motion animator and all-round ridiculously talented individual who I met while studying at the VCA.

He creates fantastical and intricately detailed cardboard sculptures, using a surgical scalpel and glue, and surprisingly, no detailed plans or drawings! 
Check out his website for more mind-blowing imagery.

I had a lovely, quiet New Years on the North Coast of New South Wales...
...where it was a slow news week!

And most recently, my illustration for Song Kong was Highly Commended in this year's Illustrators Australia Awards! Yay!
