new project and exciting news!

So we are a bit behind with announcing the new theme - hmm okay I am seeing a pattern here for us - but we have some excited news to share which I think definitely makes up for our lack of organisation this month!

As you no doubt heard, this Saturday is Safety in Art! Kel from Catacomb Creative has put together one awesome day out for all you creatives. You can read more about it here and here but basically it is one action packed arty kinda day being held at Guildford Lane Gallery in the city. It is bringing all type of interesting and excited people together to meet and chat and make and share their wares.

There will be round table discussions, artists selling their work, live art, all kinds of crazy creating, as well as coffee and nibbles and a bunch of awesome people to meet.

AND! Also... most importantly! We will be there for the day with a bit of a challenge to keep you all busy!

Which brings me to the theme for this month! Things will work a little bit differently for September so listen up!

Submissions can be sent to us or blogged about up until 5th of October, however during the Safety in Art event we will be running a competition to see what you all can create on this given theme in one day. It does have to be polished and perfect, it's just about getting your ideas out and having a go! So come along and play!

Okay, the theme:


  1. Hey girls, thats really exciting hope it all goes great. Can't wait to see what you get out of the creatives at the event!

    I think you meant It doesn't have to be polished and perfect, but hey perfect is in the eye of the artist and is very rarely achieved.

    Wish i could come along ... Hope you get to do the same at a Sydney event!?

    Have fun :)

  2. haha yes... i meant it DOESN'T have to be haha

    we arent THAT demanding and hard to please!!

  3. Well you might not be -- but I stand by your original wording :p

    Haha... I'm really looking forward to it. Perfect or not!

  4. i'm having a reversal ... just as i am supposed to create perfection with half a brief and 26 minutes i expect everyone who submits to have their work illustrated, textured, sewn and rendered immaculately (all on time and under budget)! Though i will probably be more lenient after a cup of tea and a nap :)

  5. hello... hapi blogging... have a nice day! just visiting here....

  6. hey girls. another great challenge :) once again I left it to the night before, but a rainy day makes for good drawing.
