Read: Tracks

You probably know all about this little story, and so did I for the most part, but I still enjoyed reading this book. Robyn Davidson isn’t your typical human, so the idea of walking from Alice Springs to the Indian … Read More

Creative: Caffeine and Concrete Volume 20

Creative: To Make a Difference be the Difference

I can’t believe this magazine exists. If I was going to design a magazine to show to potential Blurb users I would attempt to design something EXACTLY like Peter Morley’s “To Make a Difference be the Difference,” only my design … Read More

Dispatches: Zoë Sadokierski

Australia turned out to be a trip of audio difficulties, but even with a blown XLR cable and ONE working microphone Zoë Sadokierski is a voice that comes through in surround sound. For ANYONE with an interest in books, design, … Read More

Dispatches: Lorenzo Princi

Within minutes of meeting Lorenzo Princi you know you are in the company of someone who is creative to the core. Driven to do. Design, photography, layout, interviews, art direction and much more. I came to know Lorenzo through his … Read More

Yoga: On the Road,England and Australia

Yoga keeps me sane while I’m on the road. Even on the days I don’t want to do it. I force myself by remembering it’s only 25 minutes. Getting the blood going, a sweat going, is so key to things … Read More

Print: ebb+ by Chloe Ferres

I’ve featured Chloe Ferres here before and I’m sure I will do so again. She makes great books. In fact, a book we did together last year, with Andrew Kaufman, was recently up for a book of the year award. … Read More

Sydney Journal Eleven

Glass pack feedback on a second gear scratch. Kent and Bathhurst. For us or the audience who doesn’t really care? On this street corner, right here and now, just watching. There is no reason to act but believe me when … Read More

Sydney Journal Ten

Slow sweat creeping up. Jacket off and packed up. Southern light burning into me. Autumn is such a lovely word. The train is whisper silent. No one speaks, and beyond this there is a “silent carriage.” My kind of place. … Read More

The book is done. Two days. Shoot, print, edit, sequence, design, upload and print. 58-pages. Perfect bound. $14 with shipping. Prior to the completion… Sugar. Tea. Milk. The book build continues. A full day of Garry working. He sits like … Read More

Sydney Journal Nine

“I wanted a mission and for my sins they gave me one.” Captain Willard. Upriver. Parramatta. Green to gold and then to black. Bubbling. Turmoil. Jet foil. Narrower and narrower. “It’s a slow boat,” someone warns but the thrust of … Read More

Sydney Journal Eight

Sydney smolders. Smokestack lighting. Vapor trails off a high rise. Moments of wonder. Can I climb down twenty floors? Control burns like a necklace around the Big Smoke. Nature reminds us all of the inevitable. When we go it will … Read More

Sydney Journal Seven

No time for dreams here. Days too consumed for the freedom of random night thoughts. Install, lecture, install, meet up. Classified. “International Guest.” There are moments when the conversation lags and my other mind creeps in. I forget to ask … Read More

Sydney Journal Six

There is someone I need to mention who has nothing to do with this post. Someone put on this planet to endure. Put here to party, to explore, to make stupid moves, to fall in love from country to country. … Read More

Sydney Journal Four

A light day. Both in mind and spirit. Tasks. Duties. Movement. The back of my throat moving toward the angry side of the spectrum as my mouth moves in these situations far more than a normal day. The booth for … Read More

Sydney Journal Three

Heart shapes floating on the top of flat whites. Rain. Things are bright and pink here. Steel doors rolled back as downtown Sydney wakes one hour later than yesterday. A weekend. The chef is different too. This one a bit … Read More

Sydney Journal Two

It’s all about the party. Outside as the day progresses the light shifts from good to great. Hazy with a touch of yellow, even when the sun is high, direct and bright. Walking in a haze myself, looking at places … Read More
