Coffee art

Not a coffee lover myself but my friend is and this is what she does in her spare time at work. Worthy of sharing with the world? I think so. http://instagram.com/helenl92

Why making cards gets fun…

 I recently finished this card for a couple going through a long-distanced relationship and I thought the guy’s idea was brilliant. Been doing a new batch of cartoon illustrations and it got me thinking how my cartoons would turn out as stickers. I was inspired by the vinyl our exhibition design class used in the grad show event so I made some stickers for the journal we had to work on this week and I was happy with the results. I might start giving them away with every order on cartoon illustrations.

What you need to know about Redkite:

*As told by one of the founders of the book*

“In early March of 2011 my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia and admitted to the Royal Children’s hospital in Melbourne for what would prove to be a very long and painful journey. That year was the hardest year of my life, I can’t even begin to imagine what she was going through but through all the pain our family had some relief, this relief came in the form of Redkite. When my sister was undergoing treatment my parents would take turns staying in hospital whilst I would be at home studying. It was very tough, my parents could barely work and what’s worse is that all the materials for school where expensive and used up fast. The social worker who represented RedKite at the RCH’s name is Xuan, she helped us with everything. Not only financially but also with her big heart, I find it very hard to open up but when I felt like breaking down she was always just a phone call away.

A year and a half later my sister passed away, but Redkite hasn’t forgotten about my family. During my sisters last days, Xuan organised necklaces with my sisters name engraved into them for me and my mother. They may only be necklaces but for us it meant the world, I always want to thank Redkite and Xuan for all the love and compassion they’ve treated my family with.”

I think alot of people misintepret charities, especially charities dealing with cancer or cancer patients. Redkite isn’t a charity that researches for a cure, they don’t grant wishes and send sick children to Disneyland, they do much more than that. They actually help the families when they need them the most.

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
