The Australian Orangutan Project





Im involved with the Australian Orangutan Project by sponsoring one of their youngsters called Krista (pictured above left), over in Pangkalan Bun, Borneo. Its been lovely to see her grow and read about her progress and Orangutans are definitely one of my favourite animals (as well as the Red Panda). So when the AOP asked if Id donate my time to do some illustrations/design for their upcoming Children's Merchandise range, which would help raise money for the organisation and educate children, I said YES! In the end, if all goes to plan, they will be printed onto many different items for the AOP including their educational program and sold to help raise awareness for Orangutans and their habitats. http://education.orangutan.org.au/

Sneaky Sound System Music Video & Philips comp entry

Australian electronic dance band Sneaky Sound System recently held a competition for artists to make a music video for their new single 'It's Not My Problem'...you had to take the footage of singer Connie and then go for your life to make a video. So my boyfriend Maik Hempel had a go and WON! Taking home some prize money ($10,000) and the joy of having his music video launched yesterday online and on Australian music video show Video Hits starting this weekend. Its was a simple idea and a quick execution and Im proud of him. You can either watch it here at Vimeo or look up Sneaky Sound System on Facebook. Id hope it opens the doors to a music video career for him.

Here is another competition Maik entered for Philips, he made both videos in Anime Studio Pro.
Below are some random scribbles I did; a man I see a lot on Chapel Street in a small fur jacket & a little picture of Mr. Hoek and Stimpson J. Cat.
