the illustrated nail
How amazing are these nail designs by The Illustrated Nail in London? They operate out of Spitalfields Market in East London, right by my old house! Wish they were there back then….(I’m losing my shit over the Aztec inspired set at the top)
the disappearing face of new york
Aren’t these images just amazing? They are from a book I recently discovered called Store Front which chronicles these amazing pieces of New York typography. From the New Yorker: “New York’s storefronts constitute the city’s vernacular architecture, shaping the look and feel of the five boroughs no less than more celebrated elements of the skyline. These...
Just wanna turn my room into this and never leave.
Recollection is an awesome online archive of Australian graphic design from the Sixties through Eighties. Plenty more gems like the above to discover.
This incredible portrait of me is by the illustrious Joanna. What can’t this girl do?
best friends forever
This is my best friend Andrew. We have been through so much together in the 8 years we’ve been friends. I just found this picture while cleaning out an old hard drive and it sums up our relationship perfectly.
stuff I saw on the ground this week
This is my amazing friend Izzy. Doesn’t she look so happy and beautiful here? She loves Greece, and she loves the beach, so this picture combines two of her favourite things. She is the funniest person in the world, and we like alot of the same stuff, including, evidently, polka dot bathing suits. She lives in London which makes me sad, but I’m sure it makes London very happy. I...
me x blythe
I was likened to a Blythe doll this week - and I’m not really mad! She is trés cute!

watch this space.
I don’t really advertise it that much, but my other tumblr is a scrapbook / visual diary of images I find, mainly on my internet travels. I wanted to delete it, but in that weird Tumblr way, it’s my “main blog” so I can’t. Looking back at it though, it’s a pretty good indication of all the shit I am into at any given time. Including (but not limited to): +...
channelling this forever
(and ever and ever)
Everything I see from Jil Sander at the moment makes me want to puke with joy. All. Those. Colours!
My little colour experiment with Howl, led me to thinking about some of my other favourite films, and just how much of a huge factor colour is, in my memory and fondness of them. True Romance is one of my all time favourite films - the vibes between Christian Slater & Patricia Arquette (whose wardrobe in this film I think about on a weekly basis) and the romance and...
I really got into Allen Ginsberg’s poetry (in particularly, Howl) when I was a moody teenager growing up in rural Australia, and lastnight I watched the movie adaptation of Howl, starring James Franco (let’s pretend 127 Hours never happened) as Allen Ginsberg. I thought it was really nicely done! (and HELLO Jon Hamm!) Got a little tired of the animated sequences, but the whole...
he, she, it, they, i
I am the headliner this month for my friends / legends / life coaches, He She It They I. Check out a couple of gooby pics of my head and a lovely write up they did for me here!
It’s been a really busy few weeks, and here are a few peeks at bits & pieces I’ve been working on at Debaser. Will show more once the projects are out! It’s an exciting few months are ahead - with lots of new work as well as two exhibitions, so be sure to come back and check it out. Can you believe half the year is over?
went to kmart, bought these.
The prettiest of winter evening skies outside the studio right now - I ♥ ♥ ♥ this city!
opening ceremony yum yums
Look at this amazing flyer (thanks SJ) from Opening Ceremony! If only I were in New York!

my life lately
starting the morning right
Isn’t the colour combos and type on these so rad?
These are just some really quick experiments I am doing - mock “covers” interpreting my favourite Dolly Parton songs (these being Jolene & Down From Dover)
I am losing my shit over this archive of creepy and incredible vintage children’s books that I stumbled onto today (thanks to first stumbling upon Emily Forgot!) Puff, by William Wondriska, is but one of the many amazing books they have catalogued. With background info on the authors and large images, this site is a dream come true!

How incredible are these installations from American artist Ben Jones? My eyes are practically jizzing over those colour combos.
darcel disappoints x izrock
I love following Craig Redman’s somewhat sadsack character Darcel, and at the MCA Zine Fair, I happened to be lucky enough to pick up a copy of a new zine from the Izrock documenting some of Darcel’s art-world adventures. From Izrock: “‘Art’ follows Darcel’s movements through the artworld, from disdain to rapture, we see our hero traverse the world’s most prestigious and...
girl crush: naomi shimada
I stole all these pics from Naomi Shimada’s blog - isn’t she rad? She is a half Japanese plus-sized model / blogger based in London. Naomi is a totally banging curvy babe - and real sized women in fashion are cool and important!
Today in the mail, I was lucky enough to receive a little surprise from Simon at Hungry Workshop. I recently commented online about how gorgeous the fluoro ink looked on their “Aim True” job, and before I knew it, one of their notebooks turned up at my doorstep! You can see from this video what a labour of love each project is for these guys - and the results are just stunning. I am...
