I have officially started sharing a studio space at The Workshop Albury, and am all set up at the new Swift Street office. My new desk is almost three times the size of my previous nook at home (with a lot less distractions), and I am enjoying the extra creative space. The address is 493 Swift Street Albury 2640 which is conveniently located – for lovers of good food and coffee – next to Jones the Grocer. Drop by and say hello next time you are in the area.
I have recently purchased a Estonian translation of the book Circus by S. Marshak with legendary avant-garde illustrations by Vladimir Lebedev. Lebedev was a Soviet painter and graphic artist. He became famous for his exceptional illustrations of the poems of the prominent poet and translator Samuil Marshak, such as Circus, Ice Cream, Tale About a Foolish Mouse, Moustached and Striped, Book of Many Colours, Twelve Months and Luggage. I love the colours and forms of his illustrations and hope to collect them all!
