We're very excited to announce that the second instalment of Melbourne GPO's True Self is now open to the public. Get your handsome selves over to Level 1 of Melbourne's GPO to view this amazing collaborative show in a custom-created space by Melbourne's one and only Gloss Creative. All proceeds from True Self will be going directly to Fitted For Work, a not-for-profit organisation that helps women experiencing disadvantage dress the part for job interviews and gain the skills and confidence to find work. A6 postcard packs (only $5!) and limited edition prints are available at GPO only. Artist signed single framed prints (pictured above) are available via silent auction closing June 23 at 5pm.

The past week saw the opening of the 'See More Janes' exhibition, which is a part of Sydney's 2013 Head On Photo Festival. The exhibition is a project from the See Jane Run collective, which features four female photographers who are "committed to an ongoing dialogue about the visual representation of women and girls in the media and in art". SEA's Emma Phillips is in the mix, and her stunning work can be viewed until this Saturday June 8 at the Depot II Gallery in Waterloo. (We were even lucky enough to snap up some pictures from the hang – check these out below.) For more information, check out the Head On listing.
Over the past month our very own Travis Price has been working with Eddie Zammit of T-world and Johnny Cupcakes, for the Sydney Johnny Cupcakes Pop-Up Shop. Travis not only took care of the shop's collateral, he even created some exclusive t-shirts. Jacky Winter's Timba Smits also has tees on display in the store, which is stationed on the George St side of the Museum of Contemporary Art building, as a part of Sydney's Vivid Festival. But wait, there's more! Travis will also be speaking at Vivid's Movers & Bakers event this Friday. If you're keen to head down to the Pop-Up Shop, it's open from May 24 – June 3.

This deserves a big round of applause. RG/A Sydney and MX commissioned The Hatch's Ben Constantine to create a set of four illustrations to help launch the MX App. From yesterday, Ben's weird and wonderful illustrations appeared online and in MX print in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. It's really refreshing to see such a bold illustration style in this arena, so tip of the hat to RG/A, MX, Ben and the producers here at JW for making it happen. To find out what all the fuss is about, Search for "MX News" on the iPhone or Google Play app stores, or head to the MX Facebook page.
It's a big week: True Self 2013 is launching Thursday night, and open to the public from this Friday May 31. If you haven't already heard, the exhibition will feature 10 framed, large-scale photographs created in collaboration by 20 Australian artists, with all proceeds going to Fitted For Work.
Just for you, we have another True Self artwork sneak peek. Pictured above is Misha Hollenbach and Warwick Baker's piece, titled 'Humanature'. Misha and Warwick took the exhibition's theme of positive self-image very seriously, by creating this striking photograph using a digital-free process: film negatives, no Photoshop, no make-up.
True Self will be showing at Melbourne's GPO from Friday May 31 – Sunday June 23. To find out more, head over here.
We're very thankful that James Gulliver Hancock's love letter to NYC – 'All The Buildings In New York' – has finally been made into a hardcover book. Published by Universe Publishing, this 64 page book features a whopping 60 illustrations of NYC's rich and diverse architecture. Organised by neighbourhoods, the book features New York icons including the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the UN building, as well as the more anonymous (but well-loved) apartment buildings that help make up the unique fabric of the city. If you're keen to grab yourself a copy of 'All The Buildings In New York *That I've Drawn So Far', head over here for more info.
