Covered in Green Ink

I'm loving my new found role as a designer for The Green Party's Bob Brown's office. I'm able to use my skills for what I believe in. I've been thinking today about how if everyone gave their specific talent to the causes they resonate with then change really can happen, as a team.

Bob's team are developing some fresh materials that I can really sink my creative teeth into and step away from the greeny green look that we might expect from The Greens.

In the booklet is a "happy selectivity" of quotes from media sources not owned by Murdoch that paint a picture less-biased than what we experience in mainstream press.
Quotes come from sources like The Monthly, Quarterly Essay, Crickey and The Age.

Gold, Lime, Teal and Turquoise with a splash of Hot Rose!

I like designing Green without grass green sometimes.

Next job is a campaign brand called 'Precious Places' that will be about protecting our Australian Icons.

My friend's home

This isn't a photo from a far off land
of brown people that are cut from a different stone
It's my friend's home. He blogs. We talk about life, god or lack there of.

All I can think about is how lucky I am.

This is an email received today from my friend in Tehran, Iran. He sent it to his blog friends.

For the record of history, and since I have no one else to tell.
Iran's dictator president held the fraudulent election, declared
victory and Tehran is on fire. Now we are in a state of coup; no web,
no sms, cellphone, satellite TV.only state run 6 channels. All the
leaders of opposition (Including the presidential candidates)
arrested.

The bitter irony of it is the NY times photo: It shows the "Avicenna"
st., my childhood home is three blocks away. I used to skate board
here when I was young. My Armenian (Christian) barber (who fled Iran
later) closed shop can be seen in the picture.

This is my home, my homeland, you, my dear friends have beautiful
blogs and nice pictures, here is mine. It was my turn to show you, my
home.

Financial Crisis Beggar

After a few conversations with some people, better off than I, this image came to me.
I imagined what they'd say if they could bring themselves to beg.
And I photographed it.
