So this is what I'm doing next week. I've set myself a bit of a challenge – pushing the boundaries of my drawing a day idea. If you're around pop in and say hi. I'll be in the Macquarie room ( conveniently positioned next to the cafe ) as from next Monday drawing like a crazy thing.

175:365 A table of old fashioned measures. Dried milk, shredded suet, sago, treacle and tapioca all able to be accurately measured and then weighed in pounds – if we wanted to know such things. But these two modest kitchen tools are helping with our fight to lose weight stop eating sugar and bad carbs and reduce portion sizes right now. Two weeks down, 6 to go.

And here is a different version of the same shade. New turmeric Stoney on the outside this time made by the good folk at Paralume. The shape of the shade apparently is called a scuttle. Nice one Fiona and Preston!

I like these shades a real lot. All the action on the inside for those tall vintage lamps with two or three shades that droop over like tulips. You know the ones I mean? Matthew made these using a new Stoney colourway called quink. Just lovely @grahamandgraham

This man is called James Thornton. He is a good man. An environmental activist who takes on big business and governments in the courts and wins. I was reading all about him in last weeks paper. On you James Thornton. Sorry my portrait doesn't do you justice.

I've made a new type of workshop and will be running the very first two in Sydney at The MCA in August. They're a version of LookDrawPrint where, rather than using nature as the starting point, we use our very own selves. It's a shorter workshop, which allows us to work fast and unguarded, so we tap into our alter egos. It's energetic and light hearted so should be a fun few hours. I'm doing two classes on a Wednesday evening with 10 people per class. Follow the link in my contact to book.
