‘Reaquaint yourself with the pleasures of a hand-sharpened pencil’, goes the tagline of David Rees’ new venture. For $15, Rees will mail out a hand-sharpened pencil, or send him your own favourite drawing pencil for him to work his magic on. The former political cartoonist uses his expertise bring your dull old pencil back to life and send it, with the bagged shavings, back to your studio. What could be easier?
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third 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. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
