I was sent over some photos of the Drawgasmic exhibition this week (strangely from Ms Flossy-p ) and in every photo I can see my little sea beast. If you look at the left, top row, there is a spotlight shining on one piece in particular, well, that is mine. Surely a little unintentional, but makes it easier to spot.
I am handing over all my pieces for the exhibition at Sweets Workshop this evening, which I am excited about. I have no real idea if I am helping John and Emma set it up or if they want to do it all alone.
I have a new stash of little cuddly monsters too, all ready for Hide & Seek
See you there perhaps.
short trip to Melbourne

During last week, I took a three day "holiday" to Melbourne with my man, who had never visited my parents there. I took the opportunity to visit some store while there, even though it can be horrendous for me to do it like that, but good for me in other ways (character building I can hear my parents saying, from when I worked in a department store as a teenager).
Any ho... it went ok the places I saw, and now I beleive I should make myself a "stockists" page so you know where I am. Stay posted!
on the rampage

As the new financial year starts, I have been making an effort to get my work (in whatever form it needs to be) in bricks and mortar stores. I figure I have something for all types of gift or paper style stores these days.
The two Pulp Stores on the Northern Beaches have had my work in them for a while (the above photo is my monster stuffie in Pulp Life, Manly).
This week I dropped off some Colouring Books at Little Paper Lane (Mona Vale) after just appearing and talking to the lovely Jayde... and...
yesterday I dropped of my pieces for the first exhibition at Sweets Workshop in Summerhill. Emma and John (more super nice people) have a selection of my originals and ACEOS, plus the gocco prints they wanted for the opening exhibition. I wanted them to be my Hipstamtic photo of the day, but I found out after I took it, if you have your hipstamatic application set at higher resolution, take two successive photos, then, don't look at them in between, it doesn't save either of them. Disappointing. No matter.
Anyway. Next week, I am going to Melbourne, and plan to get some of my pieces in stores there. Crossed fingers!
no postage sale and hiding from the foul weather

Anyone got a very large umbrella that can cover my whole suburb? Or perhaps a wind machine that can blow the clouds just over the dam and let us be for a few days?
Until the end of June I have decided to have a no postage sale in my Etsy Store. Some nice little savings to be had there.
Mono-print therapy starts again.

I have started to do some more monoprints in my mad rushing around. I kid myself if I think I don't rush around all the time. I blame it on markets and deadlines and my man being a crazy maker... but really, I feel guilty if I do nothing.
