is there anything better?

volume two; now repeating on my iTunes.

naughty nanna fabrics

I first seen this fabric made into some pillows at the Rose Street market (Fitzroy) but now it's popping up everywhere else.
(here and here to be precise)
This raunchy "softcore" fabric is made by Alexander Henry, a fabrics designer known for his "conversation-starting" designs.

hoorah! my first proper client in ages!
monroe makeup by toni alford.
models: lauren neaves and some other chick.
below are some draft images that i quickly threw together to see if our heads were in the same space.
Personally, I prefer the font in the second image to that in the third image, but I'm learning to distance myself from my work and to not become so emotionally attached.
The top image will be incorporated into the website that's in planning, and the third image will be used as one side of a business card.
feedback welcome!

right-click and "view image" for full-size.

I am so thrilled to be able to announce this tonight.
hohkyo has just employed* the one and only...

alana canning
(say it as one word: ala-knacker-ning)

Alana is a graphic artist, and a freeeking good one!
she will be working with/for hohkyo as a freelance designer,
and might be available for some small design projects.
(she's a really busy gal, but might make an exception)

We also plan to work together on a range of t-shirt prints sometime soon.
Keep any eye out for her work. Her folio will appear online shortly.

*i have no intentions of paying her. XD
Alana is doing me a huge favour by accepting my offer
to work under my brand name for publicity.
Gosh i love her. *shakes her to death*

SCENE: (thursday morning) Toni & I are sitting on the train, laughing about bad makeup artists.
(queue 12 year old, who, for the purpose of this re-telling is named Bethany)
Bethany: (sitting on the lap of another 12 year old who shall remain nameless)
(singing) ((yes, singing))

With so much drama in the l-b-c
Its kinda hard bein snoop d-o-double-g
But i, somehow, some way
Keep comin up with funky ass shit like every single day
May i, kick a little something for the gs (yeah)
And, make a few ends as (yeah!)
I breeze, through
Two in the mornin and the partys still jumpin
Cause my momma aint home
I got bitches in the living room gettin it onA
nd, they aint leavin til six in the mornin (six in the mornin)
So what you wanna do, sheeeit
I got a pocket full of rubbers and my homeboys do too
So turn off the lights and close the doors
But (but what) we don't love them hoes, yeah!
So we gonna smoke a ounce to this
Gs up, hoes down, while you motherfuckers bounce to this

Bethany is a white girl, about to get her head kicked in.
It's times like this when I truely appreciate the beauty of living in broadmeadows.

okay, so i finally got an email back from someone who works for art&armour.
although they loved my designs, they said they don't quite fit with their current collection.
they are holding onto them though, and plan to use them in a future lot.
for now though, they have offered to use my designs to create a "spotlight" sort of feature that showcases the designers who work with art&armour.
it all sounds exciting, but i dont know too much about it.
any press is a good press, so i would be jumping for joy if i could be physically bothered.

sad that corky's go flooded (again)
images snatched from this blog.
("snatched sounds like a dirty word. lol.)


Jonny Craig.
yup. we touched him and sucked his genius out.

i lost my engagement ring.
