Every Friday night I am running 'Masterclass Workshops' from my studio, tonight being the first! They will be different every week but I will repeat some if there is a demand! This week is Watercolour, and next is Pop Art portraits. If you're in the Newcastle area, email me for info or to book!

What a month Ive had! After an opportunity presented itself to me earlier in September, I am now the very proud, very excited proprietor of Melisah May Illustration Studio! I have a huge, light filled space in the Hunter St Mall, Newcastle where I can now work freelance, and run classes in! I have always dreamed of having my own art school, and its here much sooner than I expected! Im going to very busy for a while until everything is set up but I am loving every moment! Even the lack of sleep doesn't bother me! If you are in the area, come check it out! Just email me to make an appointment, or come along to one of the classes - more on that soon! x

In the wake of Robin Williams's tragic passing, I found myself unable to stop thinking about him, and just how cruel depression can be. It doesn't matter who you are, what you have done, or how much you are loved and admired, that black dog can still haunt any of us. My thoughts inspired me to create a portrait of him in graphite, and I am donating all the profits to Beyond Blue - a fantastic Australian organisation supporting those struggling with depression and mental illness. I sold out at the last Hunt and Gather Markets, and I had so many people thank me and comment on how happy they were to support the cause. The prints are still available on my website in A4 and A3 size. Thanks again for all your support. x
