The Vigour Cow; part 2

Its Wheat harvest here at the moment.  For fun, on our way home I decided to unload the cow and photograph her. It was hilarious.  The header operator thought so too, but I must say…doesnt she look divine! Till next time, Nat

The Vigour Cow

The Vigour Cow in progressMeet “Parfume de Kow”, or The Vigour Cow.

I was in need of a sign, or a marker for the front of  Vigour Graphics. Big signs didnt appeal to me, and as the Vigour Graphics building is a studio separated from my home by a breeze-way, in a semi-rural area, I decided that a lifesize image of a cow would be perfect. We waited 2 months for her arrival from Melbourne and when she did we were as pleased as punch. The time frame was perfect and gave me time to think about how she should be painted, then set out to pasture in the front paddock.

In DetailI spent every Sunday I could getting a few hours in.  My skeptics, (my dear family and dear friends) watched as she came to life.  Even they have grown to love her.  The week she was finished, she ended up in a local art exhibition, (out the front on the street, more so than in the gallery) and drew a great crowd of admirers.  The following week she was invited to the local high school for Expressive Arts Week.  By now I was keen to have her home….to be continued……

Sally Wilson and Mark Kruger National Tour

We’ve started the promotional material for Mezzo Soprano, Sally Wilson and Concert Pianist, Mark Kruger.  They are coming to Australia for their National Tour from Belgium.  This is the promotional web flyer that will be going around.  Currently brochures are being printed and the early layout of the concert souvenir book has begun. To visit Mark To visit Sally.

I have been fortunate to not only see Sally and Mark live, but also to photograph them. Their performance is very funny, clever, witty and charming, opera is not about a fat lady singing….. oh so not about that at all, which really opened my eyes! Check them out. Nat

2 new logos

I wanted to show you my top 2 logos we designed this week. This first one is for Jewellery, Hat and Accessory designer  NF Designs.  I really like this one.  I am especially taken by the bird and the chocolate box stripes.nfdesigns

The second is for Sydney based company Beautiful Tiles. I liked working with their colours and the job portfolio was open ended. That meant I had considerable freedom, and this one is the one they chose.
