“Mako × Cafe -Little drawings of cafes in Launceston.”

Makocafe Poster

Introduction from Daniel Spinks
“Mako’s love of spending her free time wandering the streets of Launceston and relaxing in cafés drinking good coffee and drawing is evident in these sketches. Further, these drawings demonstrate Mako’s lifestyle. Thus, these pictures simultaneously reflect the life of this particular artist, and are a reflection of the city – and the culture of the city – in which she lives. The resulting creation, in which she has poured her own lifestyle, and which reflects her surroundings, is ‘Mako x Café: Little Drawings of Cafés in Launceston’. (Daniel Spinks)”
Milkbar introduced me on thir website
“Mako has her beautiful sketches, featuring Launceston cafes, on display at Milkbar at the moment. Come and check them out, they are super cute!

Place     Milkbar, 139 St John St, Launceston
Date      from Monday 10th September (around one month)
              Portrait session: Thursday 20th September 14:00-16:00
“Mako is often found in cafes about town, drawing what she sees in Launceston’s cafe scene, and now you can see a selection of her pictures at the café Milkbar.
These delicate pen drawings have been chosen from a mountain of Mako’s sketchbooks. She has walked around Launceston with her sketchbook, finding comfortable and beautiful places, having coffee at cafés and drawing people while they relax and enjoy their time. In the great amount of time that she has spent in cafés since she came to Launceston in 2009, she has developed a great love of the café culture here. Guess how many cups of coffee she has had in these 3 and a half years? You can share Mako’s experiences in Launceston’s cafés at this exhibition.
Mako will be at Milkbar on Thursday, September 20th, from 2 – 4pm, holding a portrait session. So come along and you can come and have Mako do a portrait of you! Bring your friends, your kids, your lover, yourself!”
