My 6 y.o. with activity book. “I don’t know why they call it ‘Jumbo Fun’ because it’s actually quite BORING”. Well observed, if a little jaded.
Selling this and other faves as prints tonight at the Nicholas Building Open Studios. Come and say hi. 37 Swanston St, Melbourne, 4-9pm.
After Brack. Getting together some faves for Nicholas Building Open Studios tonight and Friday. 37 Swanston St, Melbourne. 4-9pm
I’ve had a studio in the Nicholas Building (37 Swanston St, Melbourne, cnr Flinders Lane) for many years now, but for the first time this year I am participating in the annual Open Studios night. So come along! For two nights only - this Thursday and Friday nights (28 and 29/8) from 4 to 9pm, many of the nine floors of artists, craftspeople, jewellers and other creative types who have studios in the building open them to the snooping public to visit, chat, snoop and buy stuff - I’ll be selling books and prints. It’s always an interesting, fun night with a great atmosphere - so come, look around the building, and drop by to say hi.
The Sunday Age 24/8.
My Sunday cartoon about the problem of unwarranted names given to political groups, and how to fix it…
'Don't Look Now' won a book design award at the ABDA Awards Night on Friday! Big shout out to Bruno Herfst - the books' designer. Also big thanks to Erica Wagner and Jodie Webster - the books' publisher and editor at Allen & Unwin, and to designer Sandra Nobes, who ended up executing a lot of Bruno's concepts. And of course Paul Jennings who wrote the great stories to begin with. We all really sweated to get the finished look of the books, and it's so ace to have them recognised like this. Yippee!
