Damn The Man Night Market

Last night was the very first Damn The Man Night Market, held in the gorgeous old Queens Theatre, Adelaide. I didn't get the chance to venture very far, as I was the only one manning my stall, but here are a few photos of the space around me. On my left was Resinate Jewellery (who I made a little trade with, love my earings!) and on my right Artist and Illustrator, Fruzsi Kenez. Was a great evening, next project, getting ready for That Dapper Market, December 15th. See you there!

Sydney Weekend

I just came back from a glorious four days away in Sydney. On Thursday night I had a print in an exhibition in Manly, which was kind of the main reason for the trip. The rest of the days were spent walking to Surry Hills, visiting the Botanic Gardens, the Opera House, eating delicious Spanish tapas and browsing the art gallery. On the last day we returned to this playground especially for me to conquer the giant rope pyramid (I really wanted to climb it on the first day but I was wearing a skirt, the second time I went back there were too many kids on it...). There I am on the top of it, I'd fly back just for this. PS. I want that turtle fountain!!

Monday Night

Last night I invited some close friends and family to help me celebrate the completion of the thesis that I have been writing this year. 

Just to give you a brief run down, my research revolved around digital design simluating hand-made image making techniques. I asked myself about the benefits of adding nostalgia to current design aswell as the fascination people have with the past. My practice ties in strongly with these ideas; although my illustrations are digital, I always aim for them to appear one off and unique. I embrace the natural imperfections that come with working by hand.

As part of my research I also set up a display of some of my current work. Dad helped me make the tressle table legs, the table top is an old door that I painted and then lined with ply wood, and the accessories are all bits and pieces from my home. 

Thanks everyone so much for your support and encouragement, it means so much to me. pip xx

Happy Birthday Irving Baby!

Irving Baby has just turned 20, happy birthday! To celebrate, they gave 20 Adelaide creatives a lamp each to adorn / embellish / remodel / paint / sew / glue...etc as they chose. The opening night was last month, but they are still all on display in store. This is what I did to the lamp I was given:
