I’ve been wanting to post this for some time…so here it is…..the very belated Ballarat Swap Meet 2012. We got such an amazing response from the Swap Meet 2011 round up As you may know things were looking doubtful for 2012 with the Ballarat council and past swap meet organisers disagreeing on the land lease. I was … Continue readings
OK I’ll admit things have been quiet on the Mister Mista blog front….but rest assured we’ve been busy creating away behind the scenes……..and are very excited to introduce our third amazing creation….Elwood James Price.
Just before christmas 2011 Ballarat received it’s first kids boutique clothing and decor store Pencilmark Lane! Quite simply it’s a trevor trove of awesomeness!
Pictoplasma (purveyors of contemporary character design and art) recently had its amazing conference/festival in Paris. As part of the conference they presented a small selection of works at the new museum la Gaîté Lyrique to be in their 2012 publication of the “The Character Encyclopaedia”

Shop 4 Kids know what time it is, showcasing our new Time 2 wall decal clock in their latest publication!
Big thanks to the Daily Buzz for their post on our Time 2 wall decal clock.
Big shout our to the fine folk from Peppermint Magazine for featuring our eco friendly art prints.
We’ve had to hold onto this little story for waaaaay tooooo long….we’ve been bursting at the seams!!!
We’re always excited when people want to profile our products on their blogs and magazines. As an independent brand we don’t have a budget for advertising….so it’s reassuring when people want to write UNPAID posts and stories about Mister Mista and we’ve been lucky to have ongoing support from Babyology, Kid Independent, Little Magoolie, Lark among others…..
It’s not everyday that we let out trade secrets, which is a shame as it’s these suppliers that help create our great products, great service with a smile………and a bit of patience.
So I’m very excited to introduce you all to one of our screen printers who just launched their website.
B.Gentle launch the Factory. A few years ago I was lucky enough to work at an advertising agency alongside a very talented designer….Selena Shillito.
I’ll say humbled but it’s hard to describe how we felt when we recently discovered this heart warming story at Six and a half stitches.
I must admit I’m hesitant to write this post……not because no one is interested…….but because it’s a secret treasure-trove of awesomeness and nostalgia.
It’s always exciting attending Kids Instyle. You always know you’ll have some amazing finds. Here’s some of our favorite picks!!!
We must appologise for the photos….we have an antique digital camera!!!
Big thanks to the lovely ladies at Babyology for their post on Series 04 from Mister Mista
We’re just back from an amazing four days at Kids Instyle Sydney. I must admit we’re a little tired after finally making it home at 1am but it’s always nice to be awoken in bed by body slamming kids saying “I missed you”.
I was recently commissioned by up and coming UK label Upper Masses Apparel to create a t-shirt design for their Artist Series. As part of the Artist Series Upper Masses have asked international designers and artists to do their take on the Brits.
Get ready, this is a highlight……………..from the director of Eagle vs Shark (Taika Waititi)………………..Check out BOY!

There’s been a strange rift with the Tee Forest inhabitants here at Mister Mista head office, ever since Spencer started an exclusive lunchtime club called “We’ve got style”.

People always have something they’d like to do if they had the time…..learn a second language, do salsa dancing, make the perfect sponge, collect belly button lint………but for me it would be to dance like James Brown….Renee’s been working on the robot and I’ve been working on soul train! To top it off, my grandfather’s … Continue readings
I was recently in the study listening to Bob Dylans song “A Hard Rains Gonna Fall” when our son Oscar came in asking about it. I told him a bit about Bob Dylan, he liked the song and off he went. I was pretty chuffed and felt like I was molding a mind. You can … Continue readings
I found this on my desktop while finally cleaning up. It’s by a good friend Lem Ozinger who’s also an illustrator/designer. This is one of many he’s done for MAD (and my favorite).

One of the great things about being a Dad is that it’s your job/duty to mold your kids minds so they can grow up to be amazing people. But it’s also our God given right to mess with them too, and maybe tell them a few untruths. I like to think it gives them the … Continue readings
