Commission // Babydoll make up artristry.

I'm so excited to share this with you guys, the wonderful beautiful and talented women behind Babydoll Makeup Artistry Kaylah whos logo and Facebook banner I have designed asked me to work on a lil project for an upcoming bridal fair. For the flyer we used 1950's shapes and typography and of course one of my pin up gals. Kaylah is from Dubbo, where I was born and it's wonderful to work with talented ladies from all over the land. Kaylah was wonderful enough to send me a few photos from the fair and I could not be more excited to share them She's used my designs for business cards, gift certs and a banner!

Adventure // Mimsy trailer trash day with mumma!

Lil lady Miss Nikki has undergone quite a few personal changes in the past weeks so sorry for not updating on the reg. I'm very excited for the future and these very exciting oppertunitys, I will of course share with all when the time is right!

So a little while a go my mumma bear and I for her birthday booked into to see Mimsy, From Trailer Trash Tattoo here in Brisbane. Every once and a while mumma and I book a day together to get tattoos it's wonderful mumma and daughter time and it's something I'm always going to remember. Mimsy is one of the most wonderful and inspiring people I have ever met, getting tattooed by her is a pleasure! We both got mermaids on our legs. (Mines below!) Mummas bear needs a second sitting so I'll post that when It's all finished. Mum packed a lil picnic and we had it down stairs in their lil tiki bar near their caravans, it's so cute and a lot of fun.

Next door is a battery shop and outside they have a massive battery so of course I got my photo with it for my collection of Miss Nikki with Big things.

My Mumma & I the day after but thought I'd share how cute we look.

The amazing Mimsy at work.

Poster // Kustom Krafts at La Costa

After the first Kustom Krafts market at Westfield was such a big hit it's really making me excited for the next one on may 27, but shortly after that there is a wonderful Kustom Kraft market at the beautiful La Costa Motel. La Costa motel has to be the cutest motel ever, super wonderful shade of mint green by the sea! The Markets are a special event with select market stalls being there. I was lucky enough to work with the wonderful Kat again and to be able to design the poster for it. We keep the same lay out as the first poster but tweaked it through the use of colour and design elements! One of my favourites yet. So make sure to pop down to La Costa Motel on the 1st of June.

Adventure // Garter Belts and Gasoline Nostalgia Festival 2014

Garter Belts and Gasoline Nostalgia festival that runs for three days up on Mount Tambourine. I had a few lil Miss Nikki things to do this weekend so we only went the Sunday. I had artwork showing in the Art show portion of the fest so it was amazing seeing my work on display with other Kustom Kulture Artists. We were up super early in the val and on our way.

Up the mountain was the most cold I've been since my trip to Melbourne mid winter! Brrrr so cold, My mum and dad came up for the day and Mumma Bear brought my good winter coat so I could rug up and not shiver all day. But the cold aside it was a wonderful day, Full of hot rods, Market stalls ( I may of bought another hat and my Boy bought me a skirt how sweet is he!) Art show, Food Trucks, Music and  Dancing. On the note of dancing, my gosh I want to learn I think when I finally get some free time I might take a few classes so Ben doesn't feel like he is dancing with someone who has two left feet haha.

My parents & I

I took so many photos of all the beautiful cars,
 but not to use all your bandwidth here is a few.

(one day I will have my own wagon sighhh)

The art show.

And here is my piece "HeartBreak Hotel" Which was displayed in the art show.
