i was really happy with how my exhibition turned out – thanks so much to any of you who came to the opening or have visited since. feedback has been so very lovely indeed. i will post some photos of the gallery when i have them. lamington drive also have an online catalogue which you can download here.

after the opening, my recovery from the show was forcibly rapid – i had dreams of taking a break (or at least a few hours off) which were rudely shattered once i discovered i had 3 deadlines to finish before tuesday. so it was back to work.

even though my world has pretty much been consumed by the exhibition there was still plenty of other things going on in the studio over the past few weeks. here are some of them -

justine clarke’s new cd “great big world” was released with our artwork in place. dvd is well under way too and looking nice.

dan rule wrote a very nice article about me and my show. he managed to capture exactly what its like in our studio in words (miso even gets a mention). its on broadsheet and you can read it here. thanks dan!

i was asked to be a judge of the 2010 kit design award. its a fun competition and great opportunity, and this year open to all designers (not just students as previous years). check it out here.
