Hello everyone! I’m happy to announce that my book, Still Turns, is now available for preorder. Information is as follows:
- Original illustrations only; features work collected over 2013–2014 along with a few unposted pieces drawn for the book
- A5 size (roughly 6×9″)
- Full colour & perfect bound
- 56 pages in total (not incl. cover) with 42 pages of illustrations
Please note that as this is a preorder books will not ship immediately. Orders placed during this period are scheduled to begin shipping from early to mid September. Once orders begin shipping I will make a post on this blog regarding delivery expectations. If there is an unexpected delay, I will also make a post.
This preorder period will last from now until the 15th of August, AEST.
For those attending Sydney SMASH! 2014, Still Turns will be available for purchase on both days (the 9th + 10th of August) at my table in the Artists’ Circle. There will be a separate post with relevant information later. If you would like to reserve a copy for pick-up & pay at SMASH!, please do NOT place an order through Storenvy and instead fill out this form.
Regular orders for any remaining stock will be open later this year or early next year.

"Our main objective was to re-think traditional packaging methodology. Used as a tool to showcase our ability to think & work beyond convention, we determined from the out-set that drawing inspiration from uncommon sources was essential to the success of the project. Cue the Terpentine: An attractive shape, an airtight seal, something unexpected. This container delivered on all counts, but how to break from the unfriendly, industrial, and for all intensive purposes toxic associations we as consumers have made with that form?
A bright yet soft color palette combined with elegant and approachable serif type helps soften the brand against the harshness of material. A quick sand, prime, and dip in paint helps add some individuality among the products and re-enforces the handmade nature of the product, No two wishbones being exactly the same.”
AKA is not one of those big fancy agencies – they are a small focused design studio that works efficiently to make the most of budgets and timelines through their streamlined positioning and design process. They are a team that believes that “all work and no play makes for a dull day”. While they take their work seriously, they believe you need to enjoy the ride – as the journey is often just as important as the end result.
I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.
