Laura Blythman has got it going on! Independent designer, illustrator & creative director, Laura is also one half of the talented duo behind the popular online city guide 'Oh! Hello Geelong'

For those unfamiliar with the Oh!HG phenomenon, Laura & Penny Phipps share their retail discoveries & happy adventures on their cute blog, keeping us informed of emerging talents & cool happenings in the Geelong area as it grows. An absolute must read for locals & visitors! 

Blogging aside, Laura is also an incredibly talented graphic designer & illustrator. Her whimsy, sweet illustrations have fashioned stationary packaging & clothing as well as the lovely layout of Oh!HG blog. Most recently, Laura showcased her work in the 'Love, Lyrics, Neon' exhibition at Kaleidoscope Gallery in Geelong & has just released a collection of hand drawn & hand stitched prints through her online studio. Amazing!

This week we are giving away one of Laura's beautiful artworks...'Feathered Fox' pictured above. An original hand drawn illustration & paper collaged A3 giclee print signed by the artist! WOOP!

Simply leave a comment on this post before 5pm on Friday 1st February (Melbourne time) & one LUCKY reader will be drawn at random & notified by email. Good luck!

What I love about this work is the tiny detail and the spots of pink among the black and white! Even more so, the time it must have taken to complete. My goal for 2013 is to be mindful and to be able to focus on a project for longer than I am currently able. Am calling this my feathered fox project. thank you Laura!
