Mostly I have been knitting capes and organising our upcoming fundraiser. This month I sold two drawings at the Linden Postcard show in Melbourne.

Culture Club... (click for more info/tickets)

So i have been working on artworks;
In short, a large lightbox etching out a vision of my dream life fantasy, to donate to the UIA charity event, Culture Club.

my short illustrative film Dark Side of the Sunny Film will be screening throughout the night.

Otherwise BLINK for a second on April 26th, and dream as if the snow is eating up your frozen feet amongst the hot springs in Colorado. Run into the nearest cinema where, it seems, there is some type of gathering. Not sure if these people are escaping from the cold, or are in the know of something your not, you follow, sit down in a seat and start munching on your popcorn. As the curtains open, Dark Side Of the Sunny Moon begins to play.

STUDIO 3A new friend to add to the spaces in between:

Ashley Chang is a gun for hire who will whore himself out for little to no monetary benefit. His dubious talents are as varied as they are vague and include writing (he has written for ‘Sup Magazine, Monster Children and Dazed and Confused among others and is the online Editor for Pedestrian TV), PR (for Sydney design studio Babekuhl) , event management (he is the Sydney Director of the Bicycle Film festival and used to run a mildly successful club night in Brisbane which, truth be told, was like shooting fish in a barrel) marketing, sponsorship, brand alignment and social media strategy - pretty much anything that involves hassling people via email with unquantifiable results. Ashley uses Studio Three as his main base of procrastination and to house his embarrassingly entry-level collection of Penguin Classics. If you need help in any of the aforementioned fields Ashley may be able to help you, but more likely, he will know someone who knows someone who knows someone that will be able to help you. Nevertheless please don’t hesitate to ask.

Yes, well I have to admit that I've never dropped anything onto a blog before... so I've put together a little scrapbook of what I've been working on over the last month, it's been full of challenges working to a new target audience but I'm happy how the job(s) are all coming together. Next month I'll finally have my website up, with a full folio of work and illustrations.

Loving the BJB space!

and today these three albums are really inspiring me

The last month has been crazy and creative. I have been retouching
mainly for magazine clients and cosmetic companies.
I have also been busy with The Silent Hour playing gigs around the
greater Sydney area.

Hello everyone!

Elke's new and intriguing collection for Winter 09 has arrived and is available for all to come and peruse AND BUY!
it is a beautiful collection and it sees the new addition of digitally printed huge silk scarfs which are already proving to be the standout piece and must have of the collection.
we have some stock available in the studio, unfortunately not an abundance though so please be quick if there is anything you might like.
The look book is attached, and the beautiful campaign that was shot as well.

please email to arrange a time to come into the studio, otherwise i can easily organise mail order for those lucky enough to be interstate and overseas, or who would just like to buy straight out.

Studio 9 is a space in our building which we are developing into a daily/weekly hireable space. At the moment it is fairly basic. the room measures approx. 15m x 7m. It has a small cyclorama approx. 4.5m wide. We have already had some exciting projects underway in there. Here are some :

Vitamin D: Something provided by the sun. If an individual spends days on end indoors, they should consumer bananas to ensure they receive the minimum requirement of Vitamin D to maintain happiness and avoid paleness.
