Koko Black have realeased their Christmas Boxes and I can finally show you my painting! Hooray! I am so proud
It came up beautifully on the boxes and they are available for a limited time this Christmas. They are full of hand made BEAUTIFUL chocolates. And Oh so delicious. And did I mention, delicious? Yes. I like chocolate.
The oil painting itself is in their Royal Arcade salon, I believe. I will have to go and visit it soon. Let me know if you have spotted it! I will be putting the pine-lapse movie of the painting up on YouTube soon. I’ll pop it on here too when it happens.
The exhibition is going wonderfully well. We had a great opening with lots of people and pictures and champagne and red dots. Huzzah!
And then I saw my pictures and time-lapse drawings on the big screen…
THE SHOW CONTINUES.
NOW RUNNING UNTIL SUNDAY 24TH NOVEMBER.
Because, why not? I’ll be manning it for 3 days next week so I might see you if you are cruising by
The day has come! 6-9pm No Vacancy Project Space, the Atrium, Fed Square.
Oh dear. It looks like the last mail out if the invitation has broken my email! If you are trying to contact me, please use Elise.firstname.lastname@example.org until we are back from whatever bottomless pit I’ve been cast into.

All work for the show is new and for sale. The opening night is on Thursday 7th November, but the exhibition will be open for preview on Tuesday and Wednesday. Works will be gradually added to the exhibition website this week.
Please come along and join us! Feel free to pass this along to others who might enjoy something a little different…
Here’s another drawing from my upcoming show…
There has been too much happening in the last couple of weeks. A good portion of the house and my studio are being torn apart so that we can finally have functional windows and I can more easily work through the hot summer days and nights. Interesting timing, I know! It’s looking great though – we now have windows… the rest is a bit of a work in progress.
Through all of that I am hard at work on my exhibition and have started the Month of Markets (commonly known as October). On Saturday I hoofed it to Ballarat for the absolutely splendid Design Exchange. That is one beautiful space. We were treated to live music all day and I got to meet a lovely crowd of locals and travellers. I will most certainly be back.
This Saturday it is the Sisters’ Market in Coburg, followed by the Maker’s Market on Sunday 20th, and the set is completed by a first-time appearance at the Kensington Arts and Craft Market on Sunday 27th.

I’m working on some new cards today. This is a favourite of mine and I’m thinking of turning it into a print too. I think the rabbit has just hopped out of the wallpaper…
I’m so excited to tell you this! In early November I will be staging my second solo exhibition.
The focus of this show is small works – yes, I will finally be selling original drawings for the first time! Along with a small selection of oil paintings and some new etchings, the show will be full of intimate windows into much bigger stories.
I will be posting sneak peeks here as I work, so stay tuned. For extra information, an invite to the opening and any special offers, please sign up to the Newsletter (in the column to the right). If you have previously signed up here or at a market but didn’t receive news of this show this last week, my apologies, and please sign up again so I don’t miss you.
Elise Hurst welcomes you back to a world of dapper foxes and elegant ladies, early last century fashion and a landscape that is recognisable yet surreal. From her background of picture book illustration and fine art, Elise combines her abilities to create extraordinary moments of narrative. Following on from her highly successful first solo exhibition Strangely Familiar in 2010, this collection marks the first time that her small original illustrations will be available for sale, accompanied by a selection of oil paintings and etchings.

No Vacancy Project Space @ The Atrium, Fed Square.
Earlier this year groups of illustrators come together all over the country to create works based on a theme to be auctioned for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. In Melbourne the word was ‘Hairy’ and I worked for the next 4 hours to create the below drawing. Well, the auction is upon us and there is some fantastic work up for sale. Its a chance to both support a great cause and maybe take home something really special. Bidding can be done in person or from afar… check the link for details.
I was really happy with this one – I hope you like it!
Date & Time: Wednesday September 4th 2013 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Venue: ABC Southbank Centre, 120 Southbank Boulevard, Southbank
