My beautiful friend @nando_nandez made a beautiful show. If you are in Sydney you should go see it : 270 Devonshire st, Surry Hills.

Although it's my name on the cover, it takes a tribe of excellent people to make my books come together. None of it would happen without the interns in my studio, strangers I accost at music festivals asking to model for me (@_katiekelso), local business who lend me their wares (above top from @monkhousedesign_), the magic book design created @michellemackintosh, various editors who trawl through my rough text and make it readable, the sanity and meals from my fam, the great folk @hardiegrantbooks etc, ETC. So a HUGE MASSIVE thank you to all involved - in this book and previous books. There is zero way I could have made them without every single one of you xxxx (this image from Sunshine Spaces taken by @chrismiddletonphoto)

Over the past couple of months I've been working with @melbfoodandwine festival, helping with creative direction for the new festival hub. This year the hub has moved to @1000poundbend, and we are transforming the space with help of @aliceoehr @danneventhire @duluxaus just to name a few. So excited to see it all come together ๐Ÿ˜…! Opens next Thursday with insane amounts of great events, food, wine and chefs talents on offer ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฅ‚! Program available at ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ฑ

MELBOURNE! Please come and celebrate the launch of my new book 'Sunshine Spaces' (published by @hardiegrantbooks) Wed 29th March, at the Princes Park Bowls Club (109 Bowen cres, Carlton North), from 6-8pm.

Sister Corita Kent show at @ianpottermuseum is also a must. Political poster show on second floor as well...

My good friends @heavytimebooks have taken over the RVCA corner gallery for the next 3 months.

Plus a great range of Heavy Times and friends books available too. Corner Stanley & Wellington St, Collingwood ๐Ÿ‘€
