Hey pals! Hope all is well in your world. Busy busy times over here in my little studio!
Firstly, I am a part of the next year of Minicomic Of The Month!!! It’s a subscription to 12 months of minicomics, zooming their way into your mailbox. I signed up last year, and loved every single little piece of mini goodness! I was thrilled to be asked to be part of the next round. My comic will be a special limited edition, exclusive to subscribers, and won’t be released to the public til later on, in a less special second edition in less special colours. You can read a little bit about my feelings about mini comics here and subscribe here.
Should have mentioned this earlier, but Golden The Exhibition happened last week, raising money and awareness for Headspace. They do amazing things for youth mental health in Australia, a cause that will always mean a lot to me. My piece, and the work of other artists involved, were available as digital prints on the night. Stay tuned to the Golden website, they may be available later. I’ll update here if I find out!
Secret Garden exhibition is this week!!! I am so excited, I have already planned my outfit, and I can’t wait to meet some of the other artists involved who I haven’t met yet. So grateful to be in a beautiful show with so many people I admire. We got some love on the Frankie blog today. My piece is the image above, I think I’ll write a bit about it here, as it’s hard to sneak so many words under the piece itself in the exhibition.
Voyage Complete depicts a serene, still scene. A spacecraft has crashed, the force breaking it apart and scattering its appendages across a clearing. The spacecraft in question is Voyager 2, a feat of human invention, sent into the universe with the purpose of collecting data about space, and perhaps the slim chance of making contact with other forms of life beyond our solar system. On board is a golden record, containing select sounds and images from planet Earth.
The spacecraft has crash landed in an undefined location. We are unsure if Voyager 2 has in fact landed on a planet that can support plant life, and perhaps sentient, intelligent life, in which case the mission is a success and we have made contact. Or the alternative, the craft has made its way back to earth, beyond repair, and with the golden record unseen.
The exhibition opens this Thursday at 6pm, at Schoolhouse Studios Collingwood.
And lastly, Sarah and I have a workshop on tomorrow just for teens at Work Shop! We would love to see you there. Anyone from ages 12 – 20 is very welcome. Lets make some zines!!
