Illustrator and graphic designer Megan Isabella Guise will be presenting an illustration workshop as part of Pigeonhole’s winter arts project on Saturday 22nd of August. This talented lass exhibited at Keith & Lottie earlier this year and works mostly in portraiture, constantly experimenting with new mediums. Her whimsically drawn handmade cards are currently stocked in One Teaspoon, Off The Wall and Keith & Lottie. To check out out some of her delightful designs go to: http://www.meganisabella.com
The focus of this workshop is primarily on how illustration can benefit you as an individual. We will be taking a look at how it can be used as a means of relaxation, self expression, communication and creativity. The group will meet and greet each other, discuss the benefits and possibilities of illustration, engage in some fun activities, and make some contacts. Expect to walk away feeling energized and inspired!
Those attending should bring:
– A handful of cards with your contact details written on them so group members can find you post-workshop
– Your favourite medium ie. Pencil, artliner, marker, collage etc.
– One medium that you are not familiar with or don’t use often
– A favorite object
Date: Saturday 22nd August
Cost: $20 at the door
Limited places available!
To register, email your contact details to: firstname.lastname@example.org with ILLUSTRATION WORKSHOP REGISTRATION in the subject line.

Lucy thinks the best part about going to the beach is being able to puff and puff and blow up her floaties before she goes for a swim!
Today I attended the Made on the Left market, and stopped by my fellow mentor and artist Ali J. Delighted to see the amount of gear she had on offer, I bought one of her large badges as a keepsake to take home with me. Ali J has 50 stockists around Australia and her own online shop.

Last night was the ONE NIGHT ONLY opening of the Condor Tower Carpark (you know, that lime green building in the city). The owner has spent the past couple of years paying for paint & supplies for local artists, illustrators and graf kids interested in tizzying up the inside of the building. In the last 6 months, and particularly the last few weeks, there’s been a huge splash of colour been made.
The opening night was amazing. Hundereds and hundereds of people of all different cultures and ages filed the several level carpark. (although I’d say the majority of the crowd was full of 16-30yr olds wearing all kinds of wicked get ups)…actually, there was even a random cross dresser in the corner. Not sure what that was about, but it was still cool.
There was decks and a dj, a temporary bar set up, and people walking around all excited like it was the Big Day Out or something.
The artwork was all fantastic. Many different styles and feels which was great. I was astounded by the amount of talent there is in my own little city and the amount of interesting people around me. (and lets face it, they were pretty good looking too!)
As one clever cat had sprayed in writing on the wall:
PERTH IS THE NEW MELBOURNE
I had a giggle. Whoever said Perth was dull?
Here is my submission to the Scribble Project, I hope they like it!
