Blanket Magazine

Blanket Magazine is a free bi-monthly Australian online magazine aimed at uncovering new art, design and photography from all over the world. It's the creation of Brisbane-based photographer/graphic designer/editor Bec Brown and a team of contributers... and its jam-packed with a fantastic variety of illustration, photography and artwork, as well as interviews with some very talented creatives from Australia and beyond.

aaannnndddd.... I was very flattered that Bec asked me to contribute to her latest issue! My '6 design confessions' are featured alongside those of 2 other fantastic bloggers - freshlyblended and my love for you is a stampede of horses.

My '6 design confessions'

Some of my favourite shots from the latest Blanket Magazine are below - be sure to download issue 11 - 'the confessional issue' for yourself though! (I had trouble with Firefox - try Safari).

Blanket issue 11 cover - illustration by Hannah Stouffer (who is interviewed in the mag - check out her website - amazing stuff!)

Interview with Brisbane artist Sue-Ching Lascelles. Lascelles' incredible work blurs the distinction between fine art and craft... She's inspired by everyday items, recreating them as soft sculptures and encouraging a tactile relationship with her work. I love that bacon... gathered along one edge! Genius.
