Kaff-eine menagerie at The Rusty Fox, Kensington

I recently painted a range of  characters at a brand new deli/cafe in the middle of quaint Kensington, Victoria.

The Rusty Fox, which will operate as a deli, cafe + larder focusing on locally sourced, ethically grown products, asked me to create something which complemented both their name, + the beautiful building itself. I decided to paint a combination of fox-children, woodland deer + a single, solemn pig, all in pigment ink, directly on the walls.

The delicate black linework  was designed to complement the warm tones of the reclaimed wood fittings, benches + walls throughout the cafe.

I completed the signage on a summery, stormy day, with thunderclouds roiling + lightning flashing nearby as the final lines were painted, + the sign was hung.

The Rusty Fox, at 501 Macaulay Rd Kensington, opens on 2 April 2013.

Visit the friendly folk there for great coffee, thoughful tasty food, a range of quality deli products + a great atmosphere. I will post more photos of the cafe after the opening morning.
