It was such a thrill stumbling across the blog of UK illustrator Lisa Evans. I was in the Nordstrom department store with my mom over Thanksgiving, admiring the annual Christmas displays, as I do every year. Nordstrom has always had a fantastic tradition of using wonderful illustrators more often than not. And this year I was loving the cute bird theme that kept popping up in various forms throughout the store. Lo and behold, as I recently discovered, they were Lisa Evan’s birds! Aside from the Nordstrom holiday birds, the rest of Evan’s work is simply beautiful. So even if you’re not one to get so excited over department store holiday displays, I certainly recommend paying a visit to Evan’s site to soak up her whimsical illustrations.
The upgrade to the Jack Evans Boat Harbour creates a waterfront recreational centrepiece for Tweed Heads on the Queensland and New South Wales border. The design strongly promotes physical activity by providing a range of public domain elements, such as extensive walkways and cycle-ways.
