It's nearly the end of January, which means that New Year's resolutions are starting to circle back around like sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads, and hot cross buns are in the headlines again. We strongly suggest you assuage your guilt for possibly not having done as much as you intended to in January by putting your name down for a masterclass at Supergraph. What is Supergraph, you ask? Why, it's a three day fiesta of graphic art and design at The Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. A bunch of our artists are hosting masterclasses and we're even giving one ourselves to explain the lifespan of an average commercial illustration commission. You know you'll regret it if you don't go. Besides, it starts on Valentine's Day - we'll hold your hand if no one else will. Meanwhile, don't forget to check out Sean Fennessy's latest work in Feast Magazine and keep your eyes peeled for Megan Hess's campaign as creative patron for The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Also, check out the cushion covers that We Buy Your Kids created for East Editions. Yep, they'll provide a soft spot to rest your head when those cycloptic cretins around you refuse to furnish your needs (just one shark with a laser beam attached to its head? Is that really too much to ask?) Love always - jw.
'Cushy' isn't just an adjective, it's a lifestyle. Or at least it could be from hereon in with these hand screen printed cushion covers by We Buy Your Kids for East Editions. There's a sweet little interview waiting for you after the jump and a limited edition run of these, so be quick! Valentine's Day gift is looming.

East Editions launched last month and invited We Buy Your Kids to design some two-colour screen printed cushion covers. They happily obliged. If this is a heads-up of what to expect from East Editions in 2014, we’re mighty psyched. You can get your paws on the limited edition cushion covers from their online store.
Megan Hess for The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation

The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation recently announced our stylish illustrator Megan Hess as their new creative patron. Megan is internationally renowned for her gorgeous fashion and editorial work and will help raise community awareness for OCRF via the ‘Brave is Beautiful’ campaign. Look for Megan’s sweeping lines and stunning silhouettes on billboards, at airport terminals, and in most major shopping centres around Australia. Congratulations, Megan!
Presenting a feast for the eyes from Sean Fennessy for… er, Feast Magazine. Sean travelled over to Yangon, Myanmar to shoot these pics for a story on local street food. The magazine is out now – get into it!
Introducing Supergraph: a three day fiesta of graphic art and design held at Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building, featuring the most masterful of masterclasses hosted by the most marvelous of artists. Ahem. The superlative line-up of masterclasses will showcase (and discover?) Australia’s brightest Graphic Art talent right under the dome and places are extremely limited. Check out Supergraph’s website to find the class descriptions and learn more about the fair. From ‘Pictionary for Professionals’ to ‘Pop-up Painted 3D Packaging’ and ‘The Art of Collaboration’ to ‘How to Draw Badly’, we’re telling you, it’s like standing at a gelato counter. It’s overwhelming, it’s a little bit epic, and you want to get *all* of the flavours.
