i've been pretty fixated with bookplates since i read 'ex libris - the art of bookplates' a few years ago, and i've been keen to do one of my own for just as long. i hand-lettered this one for a friend who's probably read more books then i've even heard of, so i have no doubt that it's going to get a good work out...
photography by mum – mostly because she's awesome at taking photos and partly because i'm too lazy to...

the thing about surprise birthday invitations is that they have to stay a surprise unless otherwise stated. or at least until the party is over. i did this custom type a while ago now – the rest of the invitation had some pretty fun folds and perforations, but it would look weird unless it was printed, so i'll have to track down a sample to photograph later...also the flowers are stock, so i can't take any credit for them. true story.

i have recently discovered the pleasure of shooting on film with something a little classier then a $5 kodak disposable... and although i barely know how to use it (and may or may not cheat by fixing the settings to match the digital) there's definitely an excitement factor to pointing, clicking and then having to wait weeks to see what you've done. i like how film teaches you to think about what you're looking at before deer season mode hits and you shoot until you develop rsi in your finger, but also not to be precious about your 24 shots, or you'll miss the whole point of it.
these photos were taken out at somerset dam and in some green space near our house...(also, how much fun are animated gifs?!)
