French knitting !

Yep i’m a closet French knitter. This is a fun thing to do while watching the Tv. It,s so easy you can

do it blind folded. A friend of mine gave me a french knitting kit and i decided to make a large rug for the

lounge room. Its now been about a year and it is slowly coming along. I think i have a few more years to go until that rug is finnished.

A day at T A F E

Last wednesday at collage we received a great brief.

We were to create an illustration under the theme of sea castle.

The catch was we had to use blue tak to create the original drawing.

So we went ahead and created our art work using blue tak, then a photo copier,

then a scanner and then manipulated the image with photoshop. Below is the final image i came up with.

I had a great day and enjoyed the brief so much.

Japanese food.

My favourite food has to be Japanese. The reason for this is i love seafood and all the other great ingrediants they use in their cooking. Its to me the stock and mirin and saki that give it a taste like no other.

Okonomiyaki mmmmmm A Japanese pancake with squid and vegies topped with bonito flakes, hp sause and mayo.

Swedish design

I went to Stockholm about 5 years ago. I love that city. While there i visited a museum and on display was lots of old laminated beechwood chairs. There simple effective design is amazing.

vintage surfboards

I would love a collection of vintage surfboards, maybe one from each era. 60’s 70’s 80’s.

The 60’s would have to be an old log 10ft+ and little rocker. The 70’s would be a single fin

swallow tail and also a twin fin. Then the eighties dream for me would be a Simon Anderson thruster.

Here’s some dream boards for me one day.

1960’s Australian muscle cars

I love the sleek lines of 1960’s aussie muscle cars they were hugely American influenced  with their big Coca cola bottle hips and beafy rear ends. Here’s a couple images of my favorites.
