Pamela Reid

I’ve been meaning to send you over to look at the beautiful visual art of Melbourne lady Pamela Reid for a little while- so here I go…

Pamela will tell you that she came to the craft later in her life, but I would argue she’s had it in her since day one.  Upon meeting her you are immediately swept up in her boundless energy and creative lifeforce (she is an absolute firecracker in the best possible way), it is no surprise to me that she is able to capture  both the tiniest, intimate emotions of everyday people as well as the larger arcs of landscape and light in her work.

Belly of the Beast

This week I received my reward for contributing to the pozible crowdfunding campaign for Belly of the Beast– the first publication for an innovative Melbourne based design School- Old School the New School for Graphic Design & Typography.  A beautiful children’s book by Rosetta Lake Mills.IMG_0682 IMG_0683

I chose this book Lucy & the Moving Moon as my reward as something I can read to my 10 week old daughter- Newborns are really receptive to stark black and white images and patterns and she loves to hear me reading to her- even though she is a long way from understanding the words, the melodic sounds we make when reading are all feeding her rapidly growing brain with information.

I was also really happy to contribute to the campaign to get issue 1 of Belly of the Beast off the ground- it is a great opportunity for individual voices to be championed in print- what is not to love about that!

*** I must add after reading the book, I was a bit taken aback with the ending- keeping spiders in jars because you don’t agree with their thoughts on the moon?- I rewrote the story for future readings!
