This week the Melbourne Stencil Festival kicks off in their brand new venue J-Studios Artist Community in 100 Barkly St, North Fitzroy. The ladies of hml who are huge illo and stencil fans are most excited about the exhibition component 'Drawing Fancy' which promises to showcase artists that have names like 8-Bit, Mute 81 and Zombie Trash. What would our tags be I wonder? hml collective? craft-ho? We'll work on it and let you know. It was this time last year we had a crack at some stencil art ourselves, dodgy as ever but with the best of intentions!
