Letterhead Meet OZ08
15th Letterheads In OZ
Cowra NSW, Australia
October 17, 18 & 19th 2008
for the pictures and explanations below....
Oz Letterheads are not "big" meets. What they lack in numbers attending is made
up for by in fun, enthusiasm, sharing and pure talent. You get a chance to spend
quality time with just about everyone at the meet.
Thank you Brian Petty for organizing another memorable meet. Thanks too to
everyone who helped.
PS: This was the 15th Annual OZ Meet and Brian is the ONLY Letterhead who has
attended every one of them!
The projects and workshops were various and it was impossible to be part of
The major "Corro Wall" for a still to be reconstructed shed occupied many hands
over the weekend. Brian had the sheets screwed to his shed to work on and this
is only one the three they did.
Another project was new "A Frames" for some of the local shops. Pat from Sign
Sheet Distributors not only supplied the frames, but cold-called up and down the
main street selling free signs for a mad mob of signwriters who just hit town!
Not only that, but SSD put up a very generous prize for the best one!
Shaz took it out with the "BookShop" one!
Paul Jordon's Glass workshop was very well attended. Paul has picked up his
father's legacy and running with it!
Of course "JIFF" from "EN ZID" was on hand to help. His blood is worth bottling!
"Enn" McDonald (Kiwi Tiger) presented Paul with an oil painting her mother did.
Paul, the flash reflection off your sunglasses was not planned, but the halo has
Old friend and original OZ Letterhead John Rigby turned up with some drop sheets
he had to do for the Big Sign Show at Darling Harbour in Sydney in a couple of
John is going to be doing a demonstration of water colour landscape paintings at
the show. These canvases will be part of the "outback" theme
I love aboriginal art and between us we bashed these out. Of course we were both
feeling "dotty" by the end!
Brian roped in a local artist to airbrush the traditional fridge raffle. Not a
signwriter, but in true spirit he stayed all meet passing on his talent.
I wacked a "bushie^" panel on the side.
Cheryl is doing some chalk art on the other, and the apprentice who won it was
almost in tears when he won it.
So ends another memorable meet. Thank you all ... I enjoyed it.
See you in Tassy next year.!
