The Just Group Christmas Party... the whole of the upstairs at The Railway Hotel in Windsor was transformed into a Vegas Casino, complete with Roulette and Blackjack tables, showgirls, cocktails, Blue man Group, Trashy brides etc - it was hella fun. I made the costumes for the Jays Crew (not much explaining needed as to what we were!) The people I work with are seriously amazing. Then we had our Womenswear department party at Basque for Spanish tapas, the Jay Jays own Christmas party at Katuk, Dave's family pre-Christmas party, the IA christmas party, lawn bowls for the Adval party. It's not even Christmas and I'm spent. xxx

BIG weekend. Finally time to sit down and bash out this little illo that I'd had on my mind... Hardly an original concept but had to get it out of my system! Contemplating tackling the whole A-Z. Probably the worst time of year to do it as the next few weeks are looking ridiculously jam packed, but we'll see. xxx

12 artists (including me!) were selected by one of Australia's best paper brands to illustrate a month in their 2011 Calendar. The KW Doggett Calendar is a much anticipated release each year, so I was thrilled to be included in this project. Each artist was given a dog-related phrase to illustrate, mine was "Hair of the dog".
The Calendar was launched with a big party in Collingwood at The Compound Interest. The collection of illustrations is an absolute explosion of colour printed on amazing paper stock, and cover of this 12 page beauty is even embellished with holographic foil - tight!

I had the most beautiful birthday on Friday. My gorgeous work colleagues had flowers and cake and even presents for me - super nice of them to spoil me! I spent the evening with some of my favourite people, friends and family, stuffing ourselves with food and vino and laughter. Sooo good to get all my loved ones together! Here's a snap from Friday of me with my lovely brothers Anthony and Gonz, and my divine sister Gertie xxx
