After many years of watercolour love I’ve recently purchased my first batch of gauche paints, and to get used to them I’ve been working on a little series of original paintings that are hopefully going to be sold through a local art framers. Here’s the series so far!
Recently I was involved with a very fun project, working with the great team at Erstwilder on their “American Diner” jewellery range just released (with more to come soon!). They supply through some great stockists over Australia and the world and this month’s release also has some beautiful Australian Animal pieces.
All images sourced from Erstwilder.
A super fun job and a bit different than my primarily paper-based practice, can’t wait to wear some of these!
Like last year, I created three new and very bright posters for Perth non-profit group Community Cinemas,
Run by over 700 volunteers, now with five outdoor movie venues, we proudly donate all profits to kids charities. To date we’ve raised $5.25 million for kids in a health or physical crisis.
These posters will be used to celebrate their amazing volunteers and the great work they do. It’s great to be able to use illustration in this way on occasion!
I’m back in the studio after a lovely break, and ready to crank into 2015. Portraits are coming in and I thought I’d share this large one that finished off 2014… a team of great work buddies, and lots of fun to draw. May your “Year of the Goat” be filled with the things that make you happy.
This has been a wonderful year, and I am very grateful. Thank you to everyone who’s supported my work this year, or provided mentoring, opportunities or hellos. I feel so lucky that I am working as a freelancer now, and some of the projects have been more fun than I could really call “work.”
For now I’ve also finally slowed down, begun napping again (!) and enjoying some time out with my husband and two year old (and mum visiting!). A happy Xmas to everyone, may you have a restful safe break filled with fine food and family. xx
Tania’s lovely 52 Week Challenge is almost at the end of the year! But do not fear, it will be back in 2015 with another 52 snappy challenges (and I’ll be helping behind the scenes next year too). But this week’s theme is Sunshine, and to kick off Melbourne’s and and off again summer, here is my drawing for this week.
For the second year I am joining the creative folk from the Abbotsford Convent for the 2014 Pop-Up Shop. Located in a space that had been long unused at the beautiful convent, this year the shop will be open from this Sunday all the way up to Christmas. Art, ceramics, clothing and much more, it is definitely worth a visit! More info can be found on the shop Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ConventPopUpShop.
