Ive been busy working on a few things here and there, one of which being this piece in a fundraising exhibition for SAFE coming up soon in Perth :) 


"From 1-31 July 2014, Ruck Rover General Store will host a charity exhibition to raise money for SAFE, an organisation saving animals from euthanasia. Join us on Saturday 5 July from 5pm-8pm for drinks, snacks and all round rad party times!


Curated by Kate-Anna St Valentine, the exhibition will feature original illustrations from a who’s who of contemporary Australian artists including Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Sean Morris and Mel Stringer. STAY SAFE is presented by Ruck Rover as part of the City of Perth Winter Arts Season.

The exhibition will be made up of new, original illustrations featuring animals. Each work will be created exclusively for this show and be donated by the artists. Every piece is for sale, and proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to SAFE.

Since being founded by Sue Hedley in 2003, SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia) has been committed to stopping the euthanasia of animals for the reason of them having no place to stay. The program began in the Pilbara and has spread throughout Western Australia, where they find foster care and permanent homes for rescued animals.

Artists: Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Sean Morris, Mel Stringer, Kate-Anna St Valentine, Rose Skinner, Maddy Young, Jessica Horrocks, Chiara Hunwick, Elizabeth Murraffo, Matt Moore, and Leonie Brialey.

Exhibition runs 1-31 July 2014 at Ruck Rover General Store.

Opening Hours: 11am-6pm Monday-Friday, 11am-5pm Saturday & Sunday.”

Spirit - Arabic Calligraphic Script by Ruh Al-Alam

This is a small showcase of an Arabic calligraphic script. A romantic and elaborate script inspired by classical Eastern (Persian) and Andalusian (Spanish) Kufic styles. Its been designed in such a way that it lends to both traditional calligraphic arrangements and modern typographic design. The ultra-thin strokes are coupled with thick heavier ones that originate in the classic Eastern Kufic style, but also reflect more recent Didot type design.

This works as a straightforward descorative typeface and can be arranged into more elaborate calligraphic compositions, manually.

It is not publicly available as a font. Only for in-house use on private and commercial commissions.
