Kissy Kissy Bang Bang

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK
We can't even tell you how much we love and admire the work of Melbourne based toymaker, artist, ilusstrator wondergirl Beck Wheeler. As hml get busy to participate in morphe 2 with our little alphabet soup we are also busy drooling over many of our co exhibitors work (Ms Wheeler being one of them).

Of course we've know about Beck for a while. Her show late last year at Hudson was the highlight of a really mad day that culminated in us planning some sort of world domination while eating pizza and coke (breakfast of champions!)

And I tell ya, if you want to see how a great website is done you need to shimmy on over to beckwheeler.net

try not to have a panic attack afterwards like we did. See it as inspiration!

If you want to see some of her amazing work in the flesh Beck's work is currently on display in the window space of ...you guessed it... Craft Victoria.

We should add that one half of hml does work there and the other half did work there (and sometimes still does). So if it seems like we think CV is the centre of the universe it's just because we don't get out much xxx

Well, I looked and wept. That does it for me, I plan to retire permanently from craft and study accounting.....

Yes, she was in the year following me at NMIT Illustration. Clearly OUR year was all about budding up and horsing around - I should have waited a year and tried to coattail in on others' talent! I love her work, but I shrink in the presence of her stuff. Eeep...

yes that is our natural reaction to someones work that seems so so good. But there is alot to be learnt from Wheeler - she seems to have a very clear vision and doesnt over diversify. I think us crafties tend to try and be too good at too many things at once! We here at hml are the guiltiest of them all ie "sure we'll have 5 blogs and we'll have shows and we'll knit sew screeprint weave collage everything we can get our hands on and then take lots of photos of it and then talk about it ALOT and then at the smae time we'll start a business, travel and tell everyone about everyone elses work ALOT!"
I need a nap.
