A Creative Career

I’m still alive!

19 August, 2008


I’ve just been working on stuff, you see. One of those bits of stuff is evident in the picture above… see the bunch of squiggly lines down the bottom? That’s mah paisleyz on the cover of the launch issue of Peppermint magazine!

The magazine is launching this Friday in Paddington, so I might scoot along to pick up a copy. I also contributed my pretty face drawing and some hand lettering for the fashion editorial. Peppermint is going to be pretty rad if you’re into green fashion (encompasing vintage, ethical, fair trade and hand crafted prettiness) and the first issue is freeeeee.
