Creeps an Exhibition by Amber Smith

October 7, 2015

Amber Smith 2222

Amber Smith is a young talented illustrator who is one of my favourite local young creatives. She has exhibited at Wolves a couple of times before and this month she is doing a solo show called Creeps which is going to consist of framed original paintings and prints.

Amber is really good at what she does, her work is always fresh and unexpected. I own a couple of her pieces and I’m sure I’ll be buying this time around too. So if you’re looking for some cool stuff to add to your art collection make sure you swing past Wolves this Friday, the show starts at 6pm.

Below are some examples of the work going up.

Amber Smith I hate you, I love you.

December 11, 2012

Amber-Smith-10

Do you guys remember a post I did a while back on one Miss Amber Smith? She asked me if I would like to be a part of a zine she was designing as part of a university project. If you don’t, just click here to see what an amazing job she did. The whole idea was centred around people’s collections. She came and took photos of me with my many ceramic animals and then asked me a few questions about my unhealthy obsession with them. She also interviewed a guy that collects slinkies, watches, knives and a lady who collects crystal animals.

Bat Butt Zine

February 26, 2017

Bat-Butt-Zine

My very talented friend Shaun Hill can draw like no one’s business! This kid is so talented that he makes me want to cry. You know those people who are able to just pick up a pen and draw anything you ask them to? Well, he is one of them which means I love him and hate him all at the same time. Jealousy will do that to you.

Shaun runs a site called Bat Butt Supermarket where you can buy all sorts of awesomely designed things from t-shirts to patches to zines and he has just brought out edition 4 of his Bat Butt zine which features over 90 artists from around the world, including amazing illustrators who are some of my all-time favourites like Nina Torr, Hannah Shone, Maaike Bakker, Amber Smith, Jackfox, Megan Bird-Steyn, Imile Wepener and Shaun himself, just to name a few. This zine also comes with a CD made up of 12 local bands, some stickers, a few foldout posters, a couple of matchbooks and not one, but two books that hold all the amazing drawings.

Nina James has a new room

December 6, 2016

Nina James has a new room, a big girl’s room as we have been calling it, with a big girl bed and big girl table and chairs to draw at. I can’t believe my baby girl is 2 years and 4 months old. She has grown so much, especially over the last couple of months. In a way, it breaks my heart because my baby is fast becoming a little grown-up but it also makes me so happy to see her progress and grow and learn new things that make us flipping laugh. This child of mine is a real little character and she does and says the most random, awesome stuff. Sometimes Shane and I just literally turn and look at each other and say “Where did that come from?!”

So before I knew it my baby needed a big bed, which in my mind meant a whole room overhaul! Yes please. We wanted to get her a bunk bed because both Shane and I remember being little and absolutely dying for bunk beds. I think I would of run around the world for one if that was humanly possible for a 10-year-old to do! So bunk beds it was! I went looking around and came across a site called Clever Little Monkey who source some of the coolest kids furniture, bedding and decor I’ve ever seen. If you guys are looking for awesome beds and room things for your littles, then definitely check them out.
