The Wolf Creek movies forever altered the definition of Australian roadkill, but Mimi Leung is about to alter it again with her new show at the revamped Lamington Drive. Inspired by the unfortunate fate of kangaroos, wombats, possums and birds on our rural roads, Australian Roadkill is a psychedelic series of works revolving around speed, chance, progress and acceptance. It's not as gross as it sounds, we swear! Opening night runs this Thursday, 10 July, 6pm-9pm. We'll have fresh lamingtons, as fresh as the macabre iterations of... never mind. Also on the cards this week, We Buy Your Kids get terrifyingly symmetrical, Tom Hutton joins our photographic wing, Emi Ueoka covers Readings Monthly, and Good Wives & Warriors go paint a three-storey gable in Glasgow's East End. Check out more stories below! Love always - jw.
Well well well! Barely a week into July and Emi Ueoka has already made a splash with her cover art for Readings Monthly magazine. Inspired by the feature story ‘Lost and Found’ by Brooke Davis, the cover features Emi’s trademark clean calm lines and soft muted colour palette. Have you checked out Emi’s folio yet? You really should – and don’t forget to grab a copy of this month’s magazine from Readings. After all - it’s free!
Wikipedia states that while symmetrical faces are perceived to be attractive, whereas completely symmetric faces are disconcerting and are not perceived as normal. We’ll go so far as to say terrifying. Anyway, just wanted to share that little factoid. While we’re on the subject though, it’s only fitting to share the latest work from famed duo, WBYK for US publication, Nautilus, a series of works on the main subject for that months issue, which happened to be Symmetry.
For those of you keeping abreast of the latest and greatest magazines in the world, Len Small and his amazing team have been consistently raising the bar for illustration in print, and commissioning some of our favourite artists to a standard of work that rivals the quality of the amazing scientific writing. With a graphic identity and ongoing art direction from one of the most respected publication design studios in America, Point 5 Design, Nautilus should be on the must-read list for any and all curious minds out there, and it’s definitely a feather in our cap to have WBYK included amongst their ranks!
So if you’ve ever wondered how and why the Moon became lopsided, just head on over here, and read all about it.
Our photographic spirit is truly alive on this fine Friday as we introduce to you, the amazing work of Tom Hutton, the latest photographer to join our flock. It’s been a real phenomenal month for SEA as we have welcomed a bevy of new amazing talents.
Tom specialises in landscape and architectural photography and his folio is a global gallery of places and locations that are guaranteed to ignite the inner explorer in you. He has an exquisite eye for detail and we think he may even have some pull with mother nature (we’re referencing his amazing lighting here, not some sort of dark sorcery).
We are so excited to welcome Tom to our photographic wing, and incredibly proud to share his entire folio available for viewing here. Tom is currently available for bookings, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch to learn more about how our production team can bring your brief to life.
Thanks to our bestest of best friends at Studio PDA, Lamington Drive has a brand spanking new website and online shop to match it’s brand spanking new location. Now located at the ground floor of JWHQ at 101a Sackville Street, Collingwood, this is the third incarnation of Jacky Winter’s bricks and mortar gallery space and shop.
Rock of Eye power duo, Good Wives & Warriors realised a lifelong dream this month as they graced the pages of New Scientist magazine for a spot on synthetic biology! It’s a rare moment seeing Becky and Louise back in the studio and not hanging out at the side of a wall, painting another one of their much loved mural commissions. Speaking of which, GWW are about to start on their most ambitions project yet – a large mural in Glasgow called ‘The People’s Painting’. Commissioned by the BBC, the pair will be followed by a camera crew for the month of July as they research, design and paint the mural on a three-storey gable end in Glasgow’s East End. The documentary will be aired in July in conjunction with the Commonwealth Games, so watch this space for more details!
And that's your lot for this week. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodbye til it be morrow,
