There were a LOT of people and a lot of good costumes at Sydney Oz Comic-Con which always makes things interesting. Here are a few!

This September, Tall Rabbit went on an adventure to Sydney! I packed as much cuteness as possible and jumped on a plane to the other side of the country to go to Sydney Oz Comic-Con. It was a fun trip and hopefully introduced a few more people to Tall Rabbit in my plan for world domination!!

I decided I wanted to to a poodle design but then it turned into a unicorn poodle which I liked even more!

The workshop was run by Emily and Rob from their spacious West Perth studio and was a small group of six. We split into two groups, one setting up the presses while the other mixed the inks. We used one of two hand operated presses, called Little Leo and Lilian, to print our designs.

Everything has to be just right to get a perfect print which includes adjusting the amount of ink, the height of the paper, the pressure and lots of other little things. But it turned out well in the end!

After a yummy lunch of pumpkin soup and turkish bread, we had time for a little experimenting with the old woodblock type which Emily was lucky enough to find on a trip to India.
I had a fun day and would love to do it again and make a friend for my magical poodlecorn!

Another highlight was the Pip & Pop wall. Pip & Pop is Perth artist, Tanya Schultz, whose installation works I have enjoyed for a while. They are always bright and fantastical and often made of sugar and glitter! This is the first time I have seen 2-D work by her and I love it! There is a lot of cute in the kaleidoscopic wallpapers - if you look closely you might find kittens, plastic flowers, owls, cupcakes and of course, lots of glitter!

It was another busy year at Supanova with the crowds going wild for Nathan Fillion! But my highlight was when my favourite superhero, Wonder Woman, and her pal Batgirl came to check out my stall. Maybe some of their superpowers rubbed off onto my things!
