Monday night paint up

It's just me and the cat at home tonight. It's still awfully cold outside, so I took the opportunity of a rare moment of quiet in our house to play with some paint. I mentioned a few posts back that I was kindly given some Liquitex paints and Arches paper by the good folk at Canson, so I worked with these because they really are damn nice to paint with. I'm retardedly busy during the day at the moment and I need my sleep, so I only got halfway through this little picture tonight. I imagined I was building it with building blocks and painting as I built. Hopefully it will turn out pretty cute when it's done. xxx

A very good day

Up early, trip to the Osteo for my monthly 'tune up' due to spending most of my days face planted into my mac screen... then onto Northside Wheelers to visit Malachi and his cute little bike store and picked up some of his Urban Crop tulips - see picture (picture taken from Northside Wheelers blog)....then into the city to collect cupcakes from Little Cupcakes in Degraves street for Philippa and Megans baby shower at Lou's house. Stopped off at the gardens and ran/walked the Tan on my way home to then perform a superman style change of garments and headed to Lou's where I ate myself stupid and chatted, all the while admiring James' bow tie. Now headed to Brighton for my cousins engagement party. It's a fucking freezing day. Tomorrow I've promised myself I'm doing nothing but lounging around with my man and my cat (and maybe picking up the paintbrushes).... Onwards and upwards xxx

Did I mention how awesome my kitten is?

I'm pretty much obsessed with Yuki. She is super cute and does super cute stuff like fall asleep in my arms and she plays with anything, especially almost invisible pieces of dust. At the moment she loves to snuggle up next to her new friend, this toy tiger. So stoked with her! I love you Yuki!! xxx

My work is in the new Jay Jays catalogue

New Jay Jays catalogue is out, and the girls emblem hoodies featured were made by yours truly xxx

In response to the utter devastation caused by BP in the Gulf of Mexico recently, I have joined with a bunch of other international designers in submitting a suggested redesign for the BP Logo.
Pictured is my entry. Enough said.

MORE NEW WORK- A giant illustration for Jay Jays!

I have had the FUNNEST week at work... listening to some new music while working (note: Suprise Wasp are especially fun - especially if you like bands like The Bronx), eating cupcakes (we eat SO MUCH F*%KING CAKE here!!) and having some exciting work offers through my inbox for some fun looking freelance jobs. Amongst all this goodness I have been working on a super fun brief, a huge illustration for Jay Jays. The illustration goes into the hundreds of Jay Jays stores around the globe in July, as a big-ass window poster with matching decals. I will post some pics when it's up, for now here is a sneak peek of a section of the Illustration. If I may say so, it's damn CUTE! xxx

New work

I was going to kick back and watch some idiot box tonight, really indulge in doing nothing. Instead I had a little play with an illustration and composition that married the branding of one of my favourite cosmetics labels Aesop together with my own design style. Pictured is the result. 45 minutes start to finish. TV is the antithesis of productivity.
