Inspiration : Tim Walker

I remember being mesmerised by the glamour and other worldliness of Tim Walker's photographs in the pages of glossy magazines as a teen. Living pre-internet in a hot desert like rural town was isolating for a creative kid and his photos gave a glimpse into a creative world that offered comfort in simply knowing that it existed.

I love the above interview with cover star Adwoa Aboah chatting to Tim about how he got started photographing his first models - elderly neighbours while staying at his mum's house. And how he never thought he could be a photographer because of the technical knowledge he didn't yet possess. Also, his mantra, 'Stay Weird, Stay Different' used for a recent project, i-Cons, a special issue of i-D magazine released earlier this year. This mantra emanated from those glossy magazine images all those years ago when I was a teen wondering how on earth I'd ever feel like I'd fit in ~ thanks Tim!

Books & Zines XII : Professional Crocodile

A wordless story about an early morning routine and commute to work for a professional crocodile. When I spotted this beauty at my local bookstore recently I couldn't resit adding it to my own shelf. The well observed characters and attention to detail in Di Giorgio illustrations make revisiting this story countless times a total joy.

Professional Crocodile by Giovanna Zoboli and Mariachiara Di Giorgio. Originally published in Italy by Topipittori, 2017. This version is published by Chronicle Books USA, 2017. 

Enjoy!

Hey friends, over the coming days I'll be adding the remaining original Australian animal paintings to my Etsy store. They will be released across a few listings in small batches which you can find here if you're interested in taking a closer look. 

These paintings were a part of a year-long daily drawing project I completed last year on Instagram. There were thirty Australian animals in this mini series which I later made into a poster. The poster is available in three sizes and can also be found via my Etsy store, here.

Thanks for stopping by!
