Here’s one from a new collection of greeting cards I’m working on.
It’s a remix of renaissance Italian and Spanish calligraphy samples from the greats, with a bit of modern-ish jocularity

@collingwood_yards is a permanent and affordable home for artists and arts organisation. I went along to see the gallery space for @artsprojectaust which is beautiful! If you live in Melbourne and haven’t been yet, it’s so worth a look. There’s coffee/wine/galleries/music/writers workshops/record shop/artist run shops/rooftop bar & the whole space has plenty of charm as a converted boys school.

A little detail I’m so happy with, and wasn’t planning on 🎨
After finishing painting some rooms with @tint.paint I didn’t want to throw away the peel off paint samples. So I cut them up and made this oversized terrazzo pattern! If we get tired of it I’ll just peel it off 🤓

1. Australian flora is making its way into many lovely weddings, so why should the wedding cards be any different? Serrated banksia leaves are so bizarre! They look like they’re cut out with crimping scissors, but that’s just how they grow and it’s amazing!

I’m happy to be able to let you know, that my greeting card designs will very shortly be available on Moonpig.com
for the Australian and overseas market. It’s a great opportunity for me to experiment with different drawing techniques, think about colour combinations for different occasions and people, and hopefully create something that will perfectly fit what someone wants to express.

Looks like I’ll be laid up for a week or two recovering from a melanoma excision. A couple of things about this
-please, get your skin checked, especially if you’re in Australia, and pale like me
-dogs are good company when you’re feeling sorry for yourself
-I’ll be using this time to work on some new cards for an online card company, TBA soon 🌕🐷

Posted @withregram • @aozorashokudo 『ようこそ、あおぞら食堂へ』
本が出来あがりました!

「子どもたちに、日本を好きになってもらいたい」、「子どもたちの中にある、日本に繋がる部分を豊かに成長させたい」、「楽しく日本語を身につけてほしい」、 そう感じているみなさんへ

この本は、私たちの「あおぞら食堂」というちょっと変わった名前の日本語教室についての紹介です。また、読んでくださるみなさんも、ご自分の地域で小さなコミュ ニティースクールを始められるための最初の一歩になれたらという思いで作りました。

日本語と英語、そして絵も一緒に載っています。 家族みんなで本を開いてみてください。
他の言語グループのみなさんにとっても、何かの参考になれたらと願っています。

2021年1月下旬にホームページからご注文いただけるよう準備します。

Aozora Shokudo’s book is now completed!
‘I would like my children to be fond of their heritage.’
‘I hope that they can nurture their Japanese identity in a fun and enriching way.’
‘I want them to have fun acquiring Japanese language skills.’
For those of you with similar hopes and aspirations, we invite you to share and celebrate your language and cultural heritage with your community. With this book, outlining how we operate our Japanese language school Aozora Shokudo - meaning ‘blue sky cafeteria’- we wanted to help you make the first step in starting your own school in your local community.
It is written in both Japanese and English,
and accompanied by illustrations, so that your whole family can enjoy discovering the ideas and activities that have helped shape Aozora Shokudo.
The ideas written in this book are also for people with a heritage language other than Japanese. Our hope is that we can all make our communities to come alive and thrive.

You will be able to order this book from our homepage in January 2021!

@gippslandintrepid invite you to start the green revolution in your own backyard. Plant a native, herb or vegetable or pull some weeds and tag them on Instagram or Facebook, and they’ll pledge to match and exceed your efforts with native plantings when restrictions have lifted - oh, also I had the joy of making these pictures for them #environment #plants #nativeplants #australianplants #illustration #melbourneilllustrator

#heidiathome visual poetry challenge/ concrete poetry. Take a look at their exhibition on concrete poets, then have some fun making your own in whatever form you like. It’s fun to play around with how words look, the shapes they form and how what the words are saying might be emphasised or in contrast to what they look like. ................My words are about getting lost in time with every day bleeding into one another, so that you start forgetting what day you are in. So here, a I’ve upturned the text and added a black hole of time (ps-Halp!) #heidigallery #concretepoetry #concretepoetrytoday #typography
