Utopia Laneway Festival

Yesterday I had the pleasure of contributing to the Utopia Lane way Festival.
Fund-raising for Afghan refugees, the festival brought together an abundance of music, art and fashion. Fellows artists & myself were invited to paint/embellish paper & fabric kites.
They were to be auctioned off with proceeds going to Hope AFAR.

Fellow artists crafting their kites
You certainly can't tell from the photo but it was a stinking hot day!

My kite design. Water colour and pencil.

 It was my first time trying out these thrifted water colours below. Not the most amazing quality but they seemed to take much better to this cotton than paper. More importantly, how cute is the tin they come in?

Hipsters in Love

Yay! the zine fair on Sunday was marvellous fun! Lots of hilarious and beautifully talented people. I thought I'd post an image from one of my own zines I was selling (Inspired by Valentine's Day of course). A Sexy Love zine: Perfect Matches in History.
Moustaches are people too.

Homage to Hannah

Cocky Coquette I
Did I ever tell you how much I love Hannah Hoch's work? Well I do.
She was an amazing artist that was funny, provocative and political. Hailing from the Dada period in the 1920s Hoch was a pioneering feminist of the time.

Above is a piece I made inspired by the brilliant Miss Hoch! 
Check her out. Also, if you're in Melbourne town you can catch some of her work at The Mad Square exhibition at the NGV.
Do it.
