Oh hi there!

We're just rounding the bend for our pending relaunch and are just so excited to share what we've been working on next week! Much like the original T-800 terminator, we're going to chuck our current website into a vat of molten lava for a much sleeker and up to date T-1000. Also like the T-1000, it might just start out like a puddle of metal on the floor of a psychiatric hospital. I'm saying things could go either way right now. I know referencing an out of date movie doesn't make much sense with this whole metaphor of something that will really be awesome and new, but I was just thinking of Arnold Schwarzenegger waking up naked in the middle of the street, and I've already written this whole paragraph out so it's too late to turn back now.

In other news, I've finally upgraded my kindle at home which is very exciting, but I'm still getting my head around why all electronic devices need to be waterproof all of the sudden. Maybe it's because I'm an Aquarius, but being in water (voluntarily of course) is probably one of the best things ever. I don't understand why we need to bring any other consumer devices into the equation. I mean mayyyybe a bathtub, but then again - just use common sense and be careful? Surely though Amazon and such somehow found this was a huge need to build this feature? Are there really that many people fully submerging their eBook readers in water? Let me know please.

Until then, you can submerge your eyeballs in our latest round of new content from this week, including my recent interview on The Design Files Podcast, to our next opening at Lamington Drive! So go on, have a gander.

The Week

Highlights from our Instagram

We celebrated International Friends day with works by Andi Meier, Guy Shield, Christopher Nielsen, Jason Solo, Melanie Matthews, and Nancy Liang for Disney.

Sojourners magazine called upon the artistic talents of James Jirat with Metaleap Creative to bring us his interpretation of the apocalypse for this editorial illustration.

Jeremy made a guest appearance on this week’s The Design Files Talks podcast.

Jason Solo captured that perfect moment when your online order finally arrives in this set of illustrations for Addition Apps!

Here’s a look into the process behind Guy Shield’s wraparound cover which he illustrated for Airbnb magazine’s latest issue.

The Podcast

This week! We're going through our open tabs and will be discussing the 4 Attachment Styles and late paying invoices.

“There’s really enormous value in being able to identify the deeper roots of your roadblocks – personally and professionally. It’s important to start there before you can actually address them.”

// Lara Chan-Baker

Each week on our podcast we dissect three links we’ve come across our internet travels. These are jumping off points for what’s shaping issues, processes and happenings in the creative industries today. To find our more about our IRL open tabs events, visit opentabs.rodeo

We discuss how to handle late paying invoices

and then chat about the 4 attachment styles, where we fit within them and how they can affect your work.

Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down / Shaka

Lamington Drive Residency


As the 8 weeks of in-gallery work and exploration have come to a close, we’re now prepping for the LDR group exhibition!

Clear the mind. Feed the process. Jacky Winter Gardens is a creative retreat nestled in a half-acre of natural bushland only 45 minutes from Melbourne. It’s a perfect getaway for solo travellers, couples and small groups.

Nature is a dictionary; one draws words from it.
