Interview with BBC//Once Upon Exhibition with BenZen
I have been super busy this week designing flyers/loyalty cards/menus for KOO bar. They liked the exhibition so much and got some positive feedback that they decided to incorporate my designs throughout. It's been a life time since I sent anything to the printers - my god I think I might have to rethink making graphic design into a career- I'm not so good at setting up bleeds!
However, a much more seasoned graphic designer is Ben Zen - he is graphic designer by day in Melbourne and by night he is an artist extroadinaire. I have pretty much followed his illustrations since the day he started blogging- they are always so magical and whimsical. I can definitely see him illustrating books in the near future. Below is one of my favourite drawings by him, I think it tells a good story and the eyes of the owl just seem so wise.
I'm also proud to announce that Ben Zen and I will be exhibiting our lovely works in the Once Upon Exhibition, aMBUSH Gallery, Sydney in November 09. Oh and if you are wondering what the first screenshot above is - it is an interview with me by the BBC. You can read it here. If anything it's worth a look because there's a photograph of me with a koala.
I have started a few drawings this week but they are all half finished so not worth posting up just yet....hopefully I can finish them soon. This weekend I'll be off to Canberra for a brief holiday - I intend to see Parliament House, The Mint, the War Memorial, and see some galleries.
