Melbourne, you old dog you

So I’m back in Melbourne, first time in two years and it is weird, weird, weird!

I’m noticing more things about this town, but I think travel does that.

I’m enjoying the coffee so much, I use any excuse to get into the city and go to my favorite coffee place -Jungle Juice, I want to capture your lovely, beardy baristas.

 

 

Poetry reading

Last night was brilliant, I have been meaning to go to poetry readings for a very long time – I finally did and it was fantastic.

Everyone was so passionate – I haven’t had fun like that in such a long time and it was so nice to meet so many lovely people.
I did a reading too and I have to admit – I contemplate just grabbing my bag and coat and just running – but I didn’t!

Working

In the evenings when – and if – the little one sleeps I work at my drawing board. The series I am currently working on is called ‘Flesh & Bone’. It’s a very emotional series for me but it feels really good to be exploring it.
I am working on the second one at the moment and I have drawn up two others, but there are more sketches in my book that I have to shoot some reference material for. I’m really on a roll and enjoying it.
