Use a Keep Cup

Friendly reminder to use your keep cup pals!! I drew this up a year ago and never posted it. I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to this, even going so far as to yell and rant at people I love dearly (sorry). Not only is this important from a biodegradable perspective (lack there of), we also have to think about the production of STUFF. Everything we use, especially products of convenience, has a global footprint. Check out supa gifts if you have a mate/spouse/family member who has an imminent birthday but doesn't [...]

Ethical Practise

After the Typism conference yesterday, I wanted to get stuck into some lettering, so I made this little ditty. It's about how I've been revising who I want to work with. The sentence I've come up with so far is "People committed to producing ethical and eco-friendly products and services." Who are your favourite ethical or eco-friendly businesses or ? Some of mine are Who Gives a Crap, Flora and Fauna, Soda Stream, Diva Cup or similar, supa gifts, Take 3 for the Sea, Boomerang Bags, Plastic Free July and Extinction Rebellion. I'm passionate about [...]

Take a Break, Review & Refine

This week's HomWork assignment was to turn someone's neg comment into something more positive that they could have said! When I was a teenager I did an art day out at Arthur Boyd's artist retreat called Bundanon, which is on the Shoalhaven River and had beautiful plants and ferns all over the property, it's really peaceful. Unfortunately, I remember some woman killing the vibe when she walked over to me and a friend while we were working on our little section of a giant piece of butcher's paper, she looked down her nose at us [...]

Follow your Value

Evening, dudes 🌈 This week's HomWork challenge is to reflect on how I want the rest of this year to pan out, and the answer is to follow what I value ✨ This is intentionally kinda vague as it covers a few different things I've been thinking about recently. 1️⃣ Valuing my own skill. I'm gonna level with you here, I've been working as a freelancer for half the rate that I could be charging for a pretty long time. After chatting with new pal @delphiejoy, I found out I've been under selling my skills [...]

Do What You Love

When I watched Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond on Netflix, Jim told a story about his father. His Dad could have been a great comedian he says, but instead, he got a safe job as an accountant. He was let go from this 'safe' job and their family struggled to make ends meet. So, he said, the lesson is this: You can fail at what you don't love, so you might as well do what you love. I illustrated this piece as it really rang true with me. To be fair, I've never not [...]
