Cairns Indigenous Art Fair 2015

For the second year, Iscariot Media has been involved with Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. Our involvement was two-fold. Vernon curated, as Dark+Disturbing, Gordon Hookey’s proppaNOW representation within the art fair. The Iscariot Media team also assisted with the administration. Gordon and Vernon arrived in Cairns four days prior to the exhibition opening and work around the clock to create a work

Look at the view out of my office window today

Today we’re in Cairns working at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. We (Iscariot Media) are representing proppaNOW, and selling artwork and tshirts. It’s a funny thing, thinking about where the business has come from over the past two decades. I would never have imagined myself speaking confidently about the artists and their works. It’s easy with the proppaNOW group though,  as their work is clear in it’s intention and I know their bodies of work so well.

I’m looking forward to the next three days. It’s a completely self-funded event, so fingers crossed, Cairns will love (and then buy) our shirts.

NAIDOC and Blak History Month

July is crazy.

In addition to the Blog Carnival Deadly Bloggers is hosting, we worked last week at Teneriffe Markets for twelve hours, which I posted about on my Iscariot Media blog.

We are also launching Dark and Disturbing in two days at Musgrave Park. HOLY!!!!!

I’m also writing for Blak History Month and I haven’t even started!!! (Sunday I promise) Follow it on Facebook or on Twitter to get your Great Moments in Blakistory Fact Sheets each day.

I also have a bunch of SEQICC duties, including meetings, social media-ing, and attending two corporate function.

I’ve done no exercise for the past two months and I’m beginning to feel it. Anita Heiss is currently training for a half-marathon, and she manages to do that and train. She’s getting up before dark, in winter, in Sydney. Surely, I could find time to walk around the park once a day?? I wish I was addicted to exercise and movement. I love it when I do it, but when I stop, I’m completely stationary.

That’s it. It’s all I can afford right now. I have a report to finish before I get to bed, and tomorrow is bump-in for Musgrave, and a couple of meetings, and a corporate gig and art exhibition in the evening. *le sigh*

Come and say hello if you’re going to Musgrave. I think we’re in tent 106. See you there!!

Cheers, Leesa

Dark and Disturbing kinda up and running

Crazy week this week. In between everything (life, etc. ), we finally uploaded a design to our Dark and Disturbing  catalogue. We’ve decided to have two streams of designs, or two separate catalogues, one on Redbubble and one with our own hand-printed stock.
