Block Party Markets

In December 2020, Hey Neighbour sought to provide an opportunity for our creatives to make a cheeky buck before they jetted off for their silly season break by hosting an artist market at The Bearded Lady in West End. 

We hosted 25 artists and brands from in and around Brisbane/Meanjin selling goods from funky crochet hats to one-of-a-kind paintings on recycled timber.  By our numbers, each and every delightful guest that walked through the door went home with at least one product.  Hurrah!

In Parallel Series 

We set ourselves a challenge to make a three part documentary series featuring four digital illustrators in 2020.  

 

After pondering over who would become our feature artist, we decided Brisbane/Meanjin's cartoon king, Zac McMah from Over It Man, had what it takes. 

His challenge? To design a brief for a new neighbour and dream up the neighbourhood in which that character came from. 

While Zac's ideas bubbled and brewed,  Hey Neighbour engaged a further three artists; Hannah Brown, Joel West and Lily Turek,

who would take up the challenge of creating their own unique version of the character using only the words that spilled from Zac's pen. 

The result?  A three part series rich with side-splitting fun, authentic creativity and new friendships.
