news flash...there's a graphic designer in the (town) house

The 22 year old's graduating class exhibition was on last night. Two years of hard slog, and Ben is about to have an Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design in his creative hands. I'm very, very proud of him. And he's proud of him too...which is even better :)
If you facebook with me you'll have seen this silhouette already. I'm thinking of getting it blown up and will look fabulous in my newly painted living room...Tiny's team starts 13 December bloggy peeps...bit excited about that!
But I digress. I really wanted to show you some more of Ben's (school) work...I think it's pretty spesh...motherly bias aside...

It hasn't been easy; he's done it while working, supporting himself...and for the last 7 months living with me...not that I'm saying living with me isn't easy! Nope...easy street more like it!   
I think this made up paint chart booklet thing is really great...

So there you go! Did I mention that I was proud!
So, well done are a wonderful human being and I'm so happy for you and your terrific achievement...and for keeping going even when it got a bit tough. 
Now you just need to get a job and pay me some rent! :)
Anyone need a graphic designer??


  1. Good for him. I think graphic design is such an interesting field. My friend is in the business and belive me she has fun and makes a ton of money.

    Congratulations to your talented boy.

  2. Congrats to Ben! His work is really great - you should have that lovely tree printed up for cards Kerry :)

  3. Congrats there Ben. I'm loving all the work you showed, but that Christmas tree just took my breath away. Yep - should be on cards for sure.

  4. Cngratulations to Ben. He work is wonderful...I know you are so proud. And what a handsome guy he is!


  5. Well done Ben! The card is great and the paint 'book' is better than most I've seen. He is very artistic, just like mom! Congratulations.

  6. Congrats Ben!!! Creative studies can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster I found... so to get through it all with a smile on your face and a fantastic portfolio of work like that is a huge achievement!
    Well done Ben and well done Kerry for making such a talented young man - I would be very proud too if I were you.

  7. Brilliant, Ben! No wonder your mum is so proud of you - you have talent in spades! J x

  8. Congratulations Ben, your work is sensational! And well done Kerry, you must be a very proud mum, and rightly so. Love the tree too - seriously need these as cards guys! K xx

  9. I could not imagine what it is like to have your little boy grow into such a lovely, talented man .. right before your eyes. You sound like such a proud mum - congrats to you both!!

    Should I ever need a graphic designer to help me out when work is overflowing, I'll gladly give you (ben) a call OK.

  10. And he's hot too! No wonder you're extra proud, Kerry. xx

  11. Well done Ben and Kerry for surviving it all. Love the Christmas tree. I see he has his mother's flair for interiors.

  12. How exciting not only to finish and do so well but to keep going even if things were tough...there are so many young people out there that let tough things stop them from the bigger dream. Well done proud Mum.

  13. Love that boy's work!! Yep you're right about the little possum needing to become gainfully employed & out on his own. May that be sooner rather than later Kerry!
    Millie ^_^

  14. Well done Ben and you should be a proud mama Kerry. Congratulations to you both. x

  15. WOW Kerry what a talented guy, I can see why you are proud his work is Fabulous, Im sure he will get snapped up by a design company ASAP.
    Congratulations to you both!!

  16. Congrats ben! Wonderful work. You must be so proud Kerry!
    PS. I have your interview on my blog today xx

  17. Thanks for the comment! Lovely blog.

  18. Yay! Gotta rush, but promise to pore over these great designs and if I ever need a designer I will definitely let you know. In this town, he needs to find out which design companies are on the Publications Panels for the big government agencies, and get a foot in the door. I'm sure he'll be snapped up, if he hasn't already with this portfolio. Fab!

  19. Fantastic work. I love the Christmas tree (as I'm Christmas mode), but it's all so creative and attractive.

  20. Hello hello, and so sorry for my much delayed comment on this wonderful news! I read all your posts but most often on the run, and on my iPhone without being able to leave a reply..
    I can imagine how proud and happy you (both) are and his work looks great. If he decides to go into 'packaging design' do let me know and I'll pass on Marshall's details. He is the Managing Director for one of Austral-Asia's top end packaging design agencies. xx

    Ok - off I go.. to work..after a coffee perhaps..?

    xx Charlotta
