I have been looking at the beautiful illustrative work of Lehel Kovacs. He is Hungarian and has a really distinctive style - mostly drawings or screenprints I think. I really liked the image below. The container ship makes me think of vast distances and the tree makes me feel at home. He also has a lot of his commissioned work on his blog.
Browsing the internet for inspiration (not shopping!), I discovered a great site featuring vintage firecracker labels - www.crackerpacks.com. Here is a sample below:
Sketching in my car on Brunswick St. Not great, but a good start for my folio of 'car drawings'. (I wonder if I'm spending too much time in my new car??)
A question that arose during the week. If a man bicycles around town searching for a window box for his office at work to plant succulents in, should he feel guilty about buying a Chinese-made one for $1.50 in Kmart? Considering he tried several nurseries for an Australian-made one, I don't think so. Also, he rode his bike. Also, the plants will improve the air-quality of the office.
I am also working on a picture book about sleepwalking elephants.
I think that's all.
