Abbe May - Design Desire

Check out Abbe May's new single 'Design Desire'

I was lucky enough to be asked to do the costumes on the video. It was rather a fun little experience. There did need to be some drastic alterations to one of the costumes on the day. Wind is not a shamans friend, and his hood and draping sashes needed to be streamlined to survive the gale, but that's the nature of the game.

Now available @ The Ginger Fox online shop

Style and Smyth Balloon Twisting

Another Saturday and another market. This last market however was wildly entertaining as I was lucky enough to have a prime view of Mr Aaron Smyth's amazing balloon twisting talents. I never knew you could create such amazing designs with the humble sausage balloon. I was very quick to snap up a sky blue monkey to adorn my stall. He became my market mascot and got a fair amount of attention from the passers by. Best of all, when Mr Monkeys tail sadly popped at around 3pm, the Balloon guru himself came to the rescue and gave my monkey a fresh tail transplant. To cap the day off nicely, I was given a tini tiny turtle to take home. It was a great day!

I have popped (haha) onto Aaron's facebook page and pulled a few more examples of his creations. How cool are the super heroes?

So now I have a whole week to decide what creation to get next.

Dead mans boots

Align Center

An illustration and oil painting I did quite some time ago. They were intended for an album cover for the now disbanded TV nation. Just some of the artwork I have unearthed recently in a bout of mad home organisation.

Life is grand when you're jumping on the bed.

I don't post pictures of myself very often; I cant say I'm the hugest fan of eyeballing myself. However, this is a blog, and I do hope you will care about what it is I have to say, so a little pic of myself from time to time is warranted I guess. Fellow bloggers out there, what are your thoughts on personal pics. I know a majority of blogs do showcase the authors pics and I love them for it. Some of the blogs incorporate such style and flair in their portraits that you cant help but fall in love with the style queens.

I am far happier behind the camera! Posting pictures of myself just makes me feel anxious and a little bit too vulnerable. Who else feels like this?
Well I hope you enjoy my blurry pics. These shots cause me no distress as I remain safely hidden behind locks of hair and muddled pixels.

Culture & Cornjacks at Cottesloe Beach

Farewell Ella

A very dear and wonderful friend is moving to Melbourne on Saturday. For her farewell gathering she chose a picnic at Cottesloe beach with good friends,tasty treats, wine and a tour of Sculptures by the Sea. Gorgeous evening; fitting for such a gorgeous girl. The tides sure have turned in my Perth life and more and more of my cherished friends now send me emails and postcards from their exciting new homes. Ah the roaming 20's; may have to pack my bags soon.
