Mini Catch up!
Feature on Channel 10's The Circle - 10th July 2012 from dawntan on Vimeo.
Times does indeed fly quickly around here these days. I've been really busy running about places like a headless chook. Not a good look indeed. But yup, busy is good at times. So, first up, I went on TV! National Australian tv! Apart from sounding like a duck in my awkward accent, sitting funny (The etiquette teacher back when I was at high school would not be happy), plus looking like I'm so proud with my head all titled (I was SO nervous and was just thinking. I got asked hard questions!)...Yes, apart from all of that, I am honestly just so thrilled and thankful to even have gotten this amazing opportunity.
Words cannot describe my joy and gratitude to everyone, all of you in fact! All of your support, encouragement and emails have just touched my heart and allowed me to grow in my art making adventures. I know I don't reply comments on this blog (simply don't have the time to keep up), but I do read and smile at every single one of it and always say a silent thank you to each one of you : ) Of course, all these wouldn't have happened if not for my amazing family, friends, teachers over the past years and my super God too. You people know who you are, you guys rock! Heh! For those of you who would like to watch a non-laggy, better cut video, you can do so here, on The Circle's website. It is, however, only viewable within Australia.
Well, apart from Being on Tv, I've also just relaunced my new website. Yuppie doddledee! I've been working on it behind the scenes, rearranging bits and pieces, uploading new work. And it's finally done! It kind of took a lot longer than expected. But I just got too busy and tired. But yay, it's now up. Hooray! Click here to visit.
To coincide with my new website, I've also made myself some new business cards. I cropped one of my paintings and re-did my old logo. I'm rather pleased with the print job. It even has rounded corners and glossy silver foil. I feel really professional now!
Tv, website and businesscard news aside, I've just launched a new seafood print! Inspired by my recent trip to Tasmania - the land of clear waters and super fresh seafood, I've painted a piece, filled with all my very favourite seafoody bits! Scallops, lobsters, crabs... oh yum! I've turned my painting into an archival high quality print and it's available now on my online shop. There's only going to be 25 prints available. So do hop on over and get yourself one if you're keen. Also, in other exciting news, I've finally started production of my new pillowcases. This time round, they're ice cream pillows! Paddlepop, Matcha, strawberry, rainbow sprinkles. OH I LOVE ICE CREAM! I was over at my trusty textile printers yesterday, and there were lots of of squeals happening throughout. Haha. These ice creams are printed rather large on the pillows. Sweet dreams instead! They will be available on my online shop sometime in Mid August. But if you'd like to pre-order one first, you can certainly drop me an email. (firstname.lastname@example.org) some have already done so and bought themselves a pair. Perhaps you might like one too? Hehe.Alrighty. I should really end my post here. I just simply love talking to you guys and can't help it. So much to tell you! In an ideal situation, I'd love to tell you more about the fun tie-dye session I did with my little kiddo friend, Hugo. But I do know it's been a lot to read for today. So maybe another time! Oh but one last thing I promise! I've recently been HOOKED onto making my own bread. I'm trying out this NY Times recipe today. Another hour more before it goes into the oven. Can't wait! Just thought I'd share the following few bread recipes. I hear they're good. I've tried the quick 8 hour one. Works like magic! Well, till next time! XO
