So we have touched down in Hong Kong and are stuck once again with the sweet dusty smells, patterns and neon shapes in the buildings towering over us. Hong Kong is in its monsoon season at present so it’s very warm, VERY muggy and full of umbrellas! We are here to work on the launch of a brand new cafe called Holly Brown. I have spent the last month or so creating illustrated artwork for the walls and now we are here to complete some photography for the project as well. Holly Brown is the happy place where the artistry of coffee meets the craftsmanship of gelato. The cafe is still being fitted out so there is a lot of construction going on all over the place. This week I will be shooting a lot of gelato, cup cakes and coffee which should be fun and perhaps tasty! I have met some great people involved in the project who have come from all parts of the world – Australia, South Africa, Tawain – looking forward to working with them all.
Ive been a bit slack on the blogging side of things lately as I have been busy working on a very exciting project which involves two of my great loves – illustration and photography! One of those awesome opportunities you only dream about! Can’t really believe it’s happening but today I head to Hong Kong to par-take in an awesome adventure – of which I hope to blog more about each day… stay tuned and ill tell you all about it!!!
I have three pieces in the ‘Stuff You Can Wear’ Exhibition which opens today 5th June and runs till 18 June 2010. Myself and 16 other artists have created works on wood that can be brought and worn as jewellery. The exhibition is been held at the Combined Artist Studios + Gallery, 11 Bankart St, Raglan. If your at the beach this weekend be sure to check it out!
Here is a peek at my three works..
Bit late in getting these pics up sorry! Great time had by all at the closing of the Drawing Show series at the La Mezz Gallery! Thanks to all who came! I sold my drawing (part of my on going explorers theme called.. for short ‘The Unexpected Sighting‘) which was an added bonus.
I’ve been a very busy lately working on several exciting projects which I will blog about in future! Cant wait to share!
In the meantime here is an inspiring artist I discovered recently…
