Happy Halloween!
Here’s a little illustration I did of the Bride of Frankenstein (his monster actually) a few years ago. Seemed appropriate in the flickering light of jack-o-lanterns...

Oh and I just realised I’d inadvertently synced with today’s prompt for #mabsdrawlloweenclub 😁

Back at the machine after three and a half weeks away - first a whirlwind (truck) driving trip of South Australia and now I’ve come home to a heap of organising for the @marrara_craft_fair ... great to get back to work making again!
.
The crafting countdown to Christmas has well and truly started!

Heading home to the tropics...
Leaving behind the unpredictable spring weather in South Australia and driving north again into the totally predictable steamy stinking heat of the build up. Oh goody. Or not 😒😜

It’s fun to go home to SA and visit family and old friends. And it’s fun to find things you made years ago nestled in the homes of people you love ❤️🧡💛
.
.
Heading back to my other home - the Top End - to get busy making again, get back to the market and the rest of my family and my furry friend, all of whom I have missed while I’ve been away...

I was explaining to someone only yesterday why I don’t give out business cards ... instead I print 500-1000 postcards and change the design on the front every print run and put all my business info on the back.
Instead of getting lost in the bottom of people’s bags, or going through the wash, overlooked in a pocket, people take them home and put them on a notice board, or a fridge. People receive them as the small gift they are intended to be and remember where they came from.
I explained to my friend that there are still people who have my magpie geese postcard - the first of around a dozen iterations of the postcard so far - on their fridge. .
This morning, I woke in the house of other friends and wandered into the kitchen, where I found that the proof of my claim was right in front of me. Magpie geese, reminding me that these little gifts are cherished and find their way a long way from home, a long time after they were given. .

The Hotel Metropolitan is a grand old establishment located directly across the road from Central Markets in the Adelaide CBD.
It’s also the location of the Chiggy & Boo pop-up this Saturday!
Head on in between 10am and 4pm Saturday 13 October to say hello and check out some art & design from the steamy Top End.
We’ll have cushions, stationery, bags, purses, coasters, original artwork and prints, jewellery, yoga mats & towels, glasses cases and more - loads of great gifts for a loved one or for yourself!
It’s a one-day only event before we drive the 3000km back up the centre into the pre-wet season build-up...
Check out my work in my feed and check out Chiggy’s feed too @chiggy_artist .

‘Hover’
Dragonflies dancing...

Sitting in a motel in Alice Springs, relaxing after a day filled with minor frustrations. Birthdays are not meant to be like this! Here’s to a better evening 🥂

Happy Sunday!
We’re doing our last Nightcliff Market for the 2018 dry season.
Heading south for a couple of weeks and then it’s Christmas preparation time when I get home.
It’s been fun, Nightcliff (apart from the wind this morning) - we’ll be back next year!
In the meantime you can find us at Parap Village Market most Saturdays all year round (but not the next two).

So Adelaide, this is happening. Come & say hi. 🤗
We’ve got time to squeeze in a Sunday session before heading back up north, if anyone has any bright ideas where we might pop up!?

There’s just no way Hettie the truck is going do over 3000km in one day and 8 hours - especially with one driver!
We’re leaving Monday and will get to Adelaide on Friday.
Interested in catching up with bippidii boppidii in Adelaide? DM me and I’ll let you know where you can find me!

Labels are fun!
These are for all the colorways of Mr PeeWee goes to town, one of my most recent designs. I’m frustrated by a lack of time to design - and Christmas is coming... it’s not about to slow down!

Oops...
My day or two off social media turned into more than a month...
Sorry folks. I’ll try to be better!
Truth is, I find social media really hard work. I live out bush and my work is very solitary. As good as it is to connect online, the hermit in me sometimes has to be hauled, kicking & screaming, to the party.
But here I am - and I shall endeavour to get back into my daily posts. I have a road trip coming up and lots more besides.
Thanks for hanging in there. I look forward to catching up with everyone’s pics now I’m back.... xxx

Catwoman is back!
.
Based on Julie Newmar’s Catwoman of the 1960s, this purse is a rare piece of fan art from the bippidii boppidii studio, where birds usually rule the roost. .

We’re at Nightcliff Market until 2pm today. .

Wiggly rows of Sturt desert pea leaves for a Friday morning. I’m focusing on staying calm this week, so this seemed appropriate.
I hope you’re having a great day, whether you’re easing slowly into your day like me, or busting your chops to get to the Royal Darwin Show, making art or hitting the office.

Had a little bit of TV chill time last night, but I can’t just sit there and do nothing... so got my fingers busy making a big bunch of colourful hair elastics while watching the wonderfully whacky Swedish Dicks (no, it’s not porn!!!).
