In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the first in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. We follow them through a typical day in their life, capturing magical moments of artistic expression and getting an inside perspective on what inspires and motivates them.

These cityscape drawings by Stefan Bleekrode are deceptively realistic images of well-known existing and imaginary cities the world over. Although drawn in a seemingly realistic manner further enhanced by the use of light and shade whenever possible, most drawings also present themselves as highly accurate architectural and perspective studies. All drawings he made so far were done entirely from memory and executed using ink and watercolour.
In the dramatized situations of Ville Andersson’s photographs, there’s a strong mystical and psychological force. This force is also present in the paintings, which are in dialogue with a former civilization; with both literature, film and fine art. In the artist’s style you can see influences from many different time periods. Andersson sees clear links […]
Jo Fallon is an UK illustrator and designer currently based in Japan. She draws custom pet portraits for the owners of awesome dogs, where the personality of their furry baby is allowed to take centre stage against a bold, bright background.
We’re fans of Underworld, the aptly named electronic music act that have supplied some awesome 1am dance music over the years. So we were excited to hear that they had teamed up with the brains behind the Volkswagen Golf GTI to develop ‘software and Underworld exclusive music compositions that synchronise motion, technology and music’.
Sarah Flora’s paintings focus on capturing and constructing memories that she is terrified of losing and creating the life that she desperately wants to have. They are an obsessive reminder of small moments that would be otherwise forgotten and therefore lost.

Charlene Weisler’s urban photography is inspired by the transience and impermanence of street art. Concentrating on the evolving nature of layered, decaying graffiti, Weisler’s art captures a timeline of competing efforts and messages eroded by weather and time. Notably, the photographs are “as-is” – as she finds them on the streets – and are not […]
Brandishing an arsenal of colour and mind bending subjects all smacked together with the cuteness of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon Jack Douglas appears to be onto something. Like Ren and Stimpy meets Where the Wild Things Are, he caresses form, representing animals, characterized innate objects and spews off-beat colour throughout.
