Formation - Beyonce.

I'm more of a Solange Knowles fan but this, from Beyonce, is something else. I just can't stop listening/watching.

More Is More For Alessandro Michele SS 2016.

Alessandro Michele is not just the best thing to happen to Gucci in a long while but to the whole of Ready To Wear. Multi colour brocade with tromp-l'oeil ruffles! Etc Etc Etc.

Magella's House.

These are some photos I took of my friend Magella's house before she sold it. It was one of the few heritage listed houses is Canberra and I always loved going there. So did my kids. Kind of like visiting an eccentric grandma's house  you could just spend the day exploring. Magella just has such a great eye for beauty and collecting and the whole wabi sabi thing. Not that you can tell from these photos. I took heaps and they all turned out pretty crappy due to my amateur camera and my crappy amateur photography skills. Still I wanted to post a few here just to remind myself how much I loved this gorgeous old house.

Glittery Gold Card inspires Christmas Project in Otherwise Unrelated Subject Material.

Printed out some copies of my zine/mini artists' book and turned them into xmas presents for some fellow zine enthusiasts. Mainly because I stumbled across this glittery gold card stock in Eckersleys and after that it just became a kind of imperative.

Jodie's House.

Visiting my friend Jodie's house makes me happy. She is in no way afraid of colour. And it shows.

Comme Des Garcons.

Late at night, can't sleep. Stumbled across one of my favourite images from Comme Des Garcons 2005 A/W show. The couture detail is sublime. Plus I never get tired of the riffing on Miss Havisham.

2D, Graphics and Printing.

Lately I've been working in 2D, putting together some illustrations and graphics suitable for screen printing. It's been fun working with photo shop layers trying to figure out how this translates into an actual hands on printing process using more than one colour.
I'm going for satire again, my ongoing love/hate relationship with fashion magazines.

Gucci Spring 2016.

For my money Gucci's Spring 2016 show could best be described as "Wes Anderson meets Frida Kahlo" with maybe a little bit of Sponge Bob thrown in for good measure.

All in a good way of course.

Lynette's House.

My sister in law is leaving us for a new life in New Zealand soon and we will really miss her. To mark this I thought I would finally post the pictures I took of her small apartment a couple of years back. I thought she did such a lovely job decorating with mostly second hand stuff, books and her Alice in Wonderland paraphernalia.
