well, here i am again – finally. bit of a break, yes, but i was busy too: 3 insane deadlines, raph away, an overload of kid-based commitments, a quick solo trip to sydney. i’ve also been feeling that between instagram and pintrest there has been enough of me out there on the internets. those 2 combined are almost like a mini-version of this blog (minus the words – how nice). and you know, i don’t want to over do it with this whole online presence business.
but, there is a lot to report. the above mentioned insane deadlines were quick jobs for telstra, virgin airlines and a new NY based magazine (thanks JW). i also went to the opening of megan morton‘s ‘the school‘, which was amazing, and worthy of it’s whole own blog post a bit later. and possibly the most exciting thing: receiving samples of my favourite job to date.
it was orchestrated through the geniuses at GAS in japan, and involved 6 female artists designing a range of sweets (and accompanying packaging) for isetan department store. designing sweets? SWEETS! it was well and truly a dream come true – chocolates, jellies, cookies and a few other things in between:
it all turned out so beautifully. you can read an interview with me on the project here, as well as with the other ladies involved in the project too (make sure you check out emily forgot - my new favourite! nice blog too).
my only problem now: what to do with the many boxes of sweets sitting on my desk. surely you can’t archive chocolates? surely you have to eat them instead?
