Mountains of Fun

December 27, 2013

Exciting times! I did the compilation album artwork for Higher Plains‘ December mix tape. Click above to listen.

Side note: Can I just say that I absolutely love drawing Japanese wave patterns but always regret it about five minutes into the piece? This drawing is only the size of my palm in real life… Pretty sure I went temporarily blind from all the tiny squiggles.

 

Panning shots

December 21, 2013

I gave up a couple of weekends this month to complete a short course in digital SLR photography at CAE.

To be honest, I wasn’t actually sure what I would get out of it since I’ve been separately/independently learning about getting the right exposure… But it was well worth it. Some of the things we covered were quite elementary, but there were definite holes in my knowledge since I’m fairly self-taught.

Possibly the funnest thing I learnt was panning. Check out these shots I took on Flinders Street! Excitement! Such excite!

 

Mad Skills You Got There

December 19, 2013

LinkedIn have published its list of the ’25 hottest skills that got people hired in 2013.’ I only have two of the skills on that list, but in my defence the rest are extremely technical! Plus I must surely get brownie points because the top skill is social media marketing… and I spent the last two and a half years at a dedicated social media marketing firm. *ding ding ding*

Full list here.

Band Photoshoot

December 18, 2013

Exciting times! I did another photo shoot this week – this time for a local Melbourne band in Brunswick. They didn’t quite look like BeyoncĂ© but I’m super stoked with how they turned up. Will post up links when the band uses the promo shots.

Playlist Frenzy Fun Times

December 18, 2013

I realised two days ago that I need to make a Soundcloud playlist because: 1. I usually blast out tunes through Soundcloud when I’m painting, and 2. using a computer when you’re covered in paint is not fun.

Here’s my first stab at a noisy, painting-friendly, neighbour-unfriendly Soundcloud playlist. Enjoy at full volume.

Graphic Photo Shoot

December 16, 2013

I shot another Two Halves set! We did this shoot at a basketball court in Collingwood. Full blog post here.

Picking the Right Image For Your Post

December 15, 2013

…is very important. And while this is a beautiful picture to promote Refinery29’s blog post, it was a terrible one to post onto the Facebook page. Yep, do not miss moderating huge amounts of comments on Facebook.

Two Halves & Shanghai Suzy

December 15, 2013

Have taken a motherload of pics recently. One of the photographs I took of the lovely Katrina Cheung is now up on Two Halves to promote new Melbourne lippie brand Shanghai Suzy.

P.S. Only took the pic below. Other pics on the Two Halves blog post not by me. ;)

Social Media Marketing 101 with Friends of the Earth

December 12, 2013

I did a super intense, ultra concentrated walk-through of social media marketing for non-profit organisations on Tuesday for Friends of the Earth. Was great to talk about the real value of looking into your page’s Facebook insights, and then some top line guidelines for the best copy and image practices for the social media platform.

Probably won’t make too much sense without me talking through it, but my presentation is up here. Shout out if you’d like me to do a tailored seminar or walk-through for your organisation!
