Mega Fauna Project Screening at Milk Factory

I met another creative, Joseph, at the Australian Koala Foundation Christmas Dinner last week, and he informed me of a Mega Fauna stop motion project he was working on.  How utterly cool and amazing I thought!  He has since provided me with details that there is a screening of this project at the Milk Factory in Brisbane on Saturday 18th.  I am definitely going!

Details from the Facebook event page:

A screening of the lastest and greatest of the Australian Mega Fauna Project. The project has been criss crossing Australasia for four years chasing scientists, bones, and all things mega fauna. This event is combines projected visuals and a live violins soundtrack as we take a viceral look at natural history down under.

Additionally we will be screening Restoring Earth a new film by the Wilderness Society. Stick around for a group discussion afterwards about the film.

From paddock to plate, more and more consumers are looking to know where their food comes from, and will be surprised to know that Australia ranks third among developed nations for land clearing globally. Land clearing has soared under reforms in Queensland, and now the NSW Government’s reforms to the Biodiversity Conservation Act could pave the way for a return to broad scale land clearing. Contrary to the pioneering philosophy that clearing the native landscape equals productivity, land clearing is responsible for a deficit in water and poor soil quality.

Comic St Wrap Up

With my last post about Comic St this week I would like to thank the organisers Sam and Bea for a well run event and everyone who visited my stall and were awe struck by the cuteness of Ringo the Ringtail Possum and Z the Sleepy Koala.

I learned lots on the day and look forward to the next Brisbane comic/market to put these things into practice to make my display even better.

I still have greeting cards available so if you would like to buy some please contact me.

A great moment on Saturday at Comic St was just walking around and seeing what other artists were creating and chatting to them about their craft.  There was such a wealth and variety of talent it was awe inspiring and great to be a part of.

Now that I have been to a few events its great to start building friendships with other illustrators and getting to know a few more people in the local industry.

But not just the artists, it was great to chat with the public and hear their words of praise saying how my illustrations were cute and stylised 🙂

I am going to write a series of posts over the week to break down what I gained and learned from the day so please come back to have a read 🙂
