Merry Christmas Love IMOK X O X O

Wow, I think everyone can agree that 2010 was a total blur! It is unbelievable that we are literally days away from Christmas, yikees!

At IMOK we have been busily working on building our brand and connecting with our fans. One of our proudest moments was creating and launching this Blog IMOKLand. We have been avid blog followers for the last few years and knew that IMOK deserved a voice and this is the result. We are still learning as we go and really have no idea if anyone is reading, but the fact that we are doing it is enough for us right now!

Another highlight for us was the opening of one of the most exciting art galleries ever, The Underground ART Space on Sydney Rd, Balgowlah. http://live.redolivestudios.com/index.php/art-space.html , the talented Designer, Stylist and Artist, Kere M Baker has embarked on one of her most exciting projects to date in creating such a stunning, yet relaxed environment to exhibit your art. IMOK was lucky enough to be part of 2 shows at the space during the year and look forward to many more!

Currently we are working on our brand new website which includes an IMOK shopping cart, we are so excited at how it is coming along and can't wait to share it with you all. So stay tuned!

Lastly we want to thank those who are reading and follow this blog, look forward to sharing more and more with you in 2011.

Much love Jen & Sandra X O X O

Fun with Fashion

Most of you would know that Sandra and I live in 2 different cities, Melbourne & Sydney! So our recent holiday to sunny Queensland was a welcome break. It's always great to step out of our usual surroundings and just have some fun. Of course when we're together we can't help but talk IMOK - it is who we are after all! But one of our favourite topics and hobbies is FASHION. We devour magazines like nothing else and love to play dress ups and work out outfits together... here are some shots...

Inspiring Quote - To be a late developer

"Set your own timetable.
Don't allow others to dictate your pace.
Benchmarks are for average people.
You're an individual and you have your own individual rate of growth.
Take the pressure off and allow things to develop naturally.
It's not important when you get there, just that you get there."

Tim Burton - The Exhibition

We were lucky enough to catch Tim Burton The Exhibition on it's closing weekend at Melbourne's Australian Centre For The Moving Image (ACMI).
It is quite possibly the most inspiring and breathtaking exhibition we have ever seen. The man is such a legend and the works on display ranged from movie props, sculptures, movies and animations, sketches straight out of his sketch book and so much more.
The experience begins right from street level with sculptures welcoming you in.
Here are some shots before we had to put the camera away. Enjoy!



















much love Jen & Sandra x x x

IMOK hearts SMIGGLE

We are so very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with one of our favourite brands, Smiggle! A few months ago they approached us to add some "colour & creativity" to their new website. We looked at each other and said "hell yeah!". Since then we have created 3 backgrounds for http://www.smiggle.com/ and counting. Here is some of our work ...


IMOK background 1: Smiggle Popz

Here we used lined paper, old school typewriter font & coloured circles.


IMOK background 2: Create a Kit
Hand-drawn scissors, sharpeners and paperclips were added to a clothesline created in illustrator with a cloudy background.



IMOK background 3: Snap watch

This one was so much fun, we turned the page into a landscape with the watches turning into cute windmills.



Stay tuned for more IMOK & Smiggle

Creating with Kids.

One of the best things about my week is getting to teach an amazing bunch of kids at Kirsty's Kids Art. I have spent a term with three classes and am continually inspired by the fearless nature of their creativity. One of the best, and messy classes we have had was building recycled sculptures. I told all my kiddies to collect cardboard cereal boxes, toilet rolls, boxes, containers and other bits and pieces and bring them in. I raided my overflowing art supplies at home and brought in some fabric, buttons and circle stickers..

I set everything up on the tables and told them to go for it. I was so happy to see the personalities of each child coming through in what they made. Each and every one of them did such a fantastic job so I wanted to share the photos of their work.

A holiday class is the perfect way for your child to see if it's something they would like to continue.
