September Snapshots

September was a busy month with lots of new products being worked on, some private commissions on the desk, a quick trip to Melbourne, and a lot of preparation to take some proper time off in October!

+ Joshua had a photo shoot in the studio for the furniture awards he was a finalist in recently. Lots of serious sketching and concentrating!
+ We introduced a new Palm Springs Mini City to the range, the Orange Apex House! We now have 4 Mini Cities in the Palm Springs collection now.
+ Museum magazine celebrated the launch of their new issue, and we celebrated a little too hard with champagne and canapés. 
+ Pirates and mermaids on the desk for a great letterpress commission. The finished product probably won't be completed until December, but it was such a fun piece to work on.
+ 2 new pin designs in the Collectible Pins range - Soft Serve Ice Creams and golden seeds Strawberries! 
+ My first magazine cover! I did the lettering and illustrations for a 10 page spread and the cover for Marin magazine, a California based publication. It was an amazing project to be part of, and seeing your work in print is always a great feeling!
+ A very quick trip to Melbourne, a couple of days in one of our favourite Australian cities. We fit in some visits with friends, and ate too many donuts - the best kind of trip!
+ A tidy studio before the long weekend. My mum came to Sydney to see our space, where all the McKean Studio magic happens.
+ Lettering projects for our next trip - we're off to Europe for most of October!
+ Our brand new, biggest project we've worked on recently -  a shiny new website, McKean Studio Vacation. Lots of our travel stories and tips, compiled in one location. 

Phew! What a month!
