Anybody who has been to a semi-permanent design conference knows the quality and calibre of creatives that speak and attend. I’ve not been for quite a few years, but a friend today sent me a link to the submissions for their 2013 book! It’s completely open (no set theme) so I’ve decided to send in a couple of entries… one being an old favourite of mine, Sad Swan. I’d LOVE to see it printed next to all the fabulous artists that the Semi-Permanent Book always includes. Wish me luck!
I am very honoured to have been able to draw this cup for the final of my little project. See below the email Ruby’s mum sent to me along with the picture of her cup.
I’m Jazz, Al’s friend from uni. Firstly, I love your work. Secondly, I’m not sure if I’ve missed the boat on the cup thing, but I love this coffee mug for many reasons, so thought I’d share. I love the movie Hairspray (and similar, Grease, Grease II etc.) and got such a buzz out of being able to share them with my daughter, Ruby Angel, and she loved them the same. As you will probably know, we lost Rube to cancer in May 2010. In November 2010 – Hairspray came to Melbourne & . So as a bit of a tribute, 25 of her nearest and dearest went and saw the show, and went and had dumplings (her fave) for dinner. A little while later, I went out to the cemetery and this mug was there. Someone from the 25 had bought it for Rube, I still don’t know who, but I brought it home and now I get to see it every day. xxx
So I’m almost at the end of my 12 cups in 12 days project. When I originally did the call out for people to send me photos of their cups to draw, I didn’t think I’d get so many (I got a lot more than 12). I’ve had such fun doodling them all. It’s given me a reason to draw each night and helped the creative juices to flow again. Thanks for all the likes and views and follows. I appreciate every single one. xx
