We escaped the Brisbane heat and endured Melbourne’s unpredictable weather to attend the 2nd PAX Australia game convention. We spent the whole day wandering through the exhibition hall trying out new and upcoming technology and playing some of the many featured games, particularly those by indie developers. We also got a chance to attend one of many panels that were running throughout the day with speakers from all different sectors in the industry. Below are a selection of photos from our adventures at our first PAX!Read More
The Sex, Drugs & Helvetica conference was back in Brisbane last month with another great line-up of creatives to share the highs, lows and everything in between of a selected project. The day was filled with interesting insights, sound advice and lots of laughs and I’m glad I got the chance to attend the conference once again.Read More
Last Saturday we headed to the city to attend the first Brisbane Oz Comic Con! While our main goal of the day was to get the last of our SG-1 autographs from the lovely Chris Judge, we also wanted to check out how it fared against other Brisbane conventions (mainly Supanova LBR) and what the stalls had to offer in the form of precious loot! Photos of the event were of course taken to share just a slice of what I came across on the day 🙂Read More
Who would’ve thought you could have a conference inside a movie theatre? I certainly didn’t but that’s exactly where the Brisbane Analogue/Digital 2014 Conference was held. Quite a good venue choice actually with nice comfy seats! I managed to attend the second day back in May with speakers from respected agencies and individual artists. It was my first time attending an A/D event so was interesting to see what had to offer.Read More
Once again, Semi-Permanent returned to Brisbane for its 6th year with eight new talented speakers. From artists to architects, the Brisbane line-up seemed to be one of the most diverse range of creatives we’ve ever had. It was refreshing to spend the day sitting and listening to their stories about their humble beginnings up to their work and experiences now.Read More
It was great to be able to attend this years Brisbane Supanova on Saturday after being unable to come last year. Every time I go the weather seems to get hotter and the crowds seem to get bigger. There was also lots of cosplayers of course and I admire their efforts to wear full body costumes in the November heat! It’s interesting to see the trends within the community, lots of Batmans (batmen?) and Gotham related characters, Attack on Titan uniforms with full vertical maneuvering equipment and many more that made me realize I’m not up to date with some pop culture references *sigh*.
Anyway, here are my photos from the day!Read More
On the 6th of September I was fortunate enough to attend Brisbane’s first Sex, Drugs & Helvetica graphic design conference. I was excited to see the great line-up of designers that would each be talking about one of their projects – from initial beginnings to the final product. The conference, held in the Garden Theatre at QUT, had a great turn out and the speakers gave great insights into their thought processes and the challenges they faced.Read More
With surprisingly good weather last weekend, I spent my Saturday afternoon at the Brisbane Finders Keepers markets seeing all of the wonderfully crafted creations by amazingly talented people. As always, the markets not only had stalls but also some tasty food delicacies and local musicians playing outside in the gardens. I stupidly forgot to take more cash with me but I still managed to bring back quite a haul!
Unlike previous times I’ve gone, a gold coin donation was required for entry into the markets, not that I’m complaining (totally worth it). Inside was bustling as always and there were so many stalls I wanted to buy from, especially those that had cool and quirky cards. Some of my new favourites were hello lemon, Hannakin, Hungry Designs, Each to Own, Beau Wylie Illustration, Team Kitten, Rabbit & the Duck and Lauren Carney Art. It was also good to see Bespoke Letterpress, Sharon Muir, Ella Mobbs and Beneath The Sun back again ^_^.Read More
The Semi-Permanent Creative Conference finally rolled into Brisbane last Thursday after an unfortunate rescheduling from July. It was worth the wait for the 8 talented speakers that came to share their stories, experience and advice. This was also a special year for the SP as it was their 10 year anniversary (5th time in Brisbane). Despite the disappointment of the video intro saying ‘Sydney’ (Brisbane pride!), the day was, as always, insightful and inspiring.Read More
My friend invited me out to the Paniyiri Greek Festival for my birthday which gave me a chance to practice taking photography after what seems like ages. We had a great day of trying out Greek food, watching people dance and trying out all the rides in the carnival area.
To save myself from constantly changing lenses, I decided to stick with my 50mm for the festival which ended up working out the best even if I missed out on a few wider angle shots.
