At the Claremont Goods Shed this morning for a gathering of the #typeclubwa – people interested in hand lettering, font styles and graphic design. Lots of different types of pens, brushpens, textas, pencils, watercolour – creating lots of different writing styles…. some curly and wandering…. others angular and edgy. I had fun scribbling on the paper covered table but even more fun sketching the people down the table as they created their “words of art”.
An insect exoskeleton blew across the backyard this morning, I think belongs to a cricket. It’s so beautifully detailed….the delicate and magical world of insects is rarely seen close up. There’s a split on the top of the carapace where it squeezed out to grow a new shell….maybe I’ll hear its owner chirping in a new skin tonight….

First time inside the renovated space that is the old Claremont Goods Shed, now an art space, currently has some “tisher” lighting installations that are pretty cool…Interactive lights that turn or off or dim when blown in the breeze or touched by a hand, other creation that caught my eye was artificial butterflies trapped in large light bulbs that flutter to life when you walk past. Very hard to sketch someone else’s art creation especially installation art that is created by lights but a quick sketch of the gallery space below….
