The female unicorn - the beginning

Well, I've ordered a tube of lilac Hobbytex paint and some of that non-woven fabric that looks like the stiffening stuff Mum used to sew into collars and cuffs. Yes, there's still a Hobbytex factory in Sydney ( I've been quietly slaving over Photoshop, creating an image I'm going to title The Female Unicorn. It stars Denise (who is making a Manwich in the previous blog) on a rearing unicorn waving a feminist flag. Yes, Denise has gone through a huge process of self-examination and self-realisation since that day with the Manwich. After this, things have to move off the computer and into physical reality as I trace the design and work out a sort of paint-by-numbers colour scheme. Can't wait until the tube of lilac turns up!

The Race Weekend

It's the race weekend in Bathurst. With the sound of the races in the distance, we sat around Karen's gorgeous little laminex kitchen table and worked out some stuff. The soundscape would be different in each room and you'd be able to hear all three simultaneously as you wandered through the space. Karen has created a series of Manwich posters and furry things with bands of plastic, very 70s, very now. I'm starting to book in my interviews. The first is on Tuesday, the last is on Wednesday, November 21. I want to interview up to 12 people in that time.
