Anika Cook – scenestr of the day

Published in SOD  
What do you do?
I run a teeny, tiny design company called The Gently Unfurling Sneak. We make clothes, accessories and cards featuring my illustrations.

Why do you do it?
I get to be weird. Plus I'm not very good at working for other people.

What do you love about the city you live in?
Coffee, rivers and autumn leaves.

Where did you go for your last holiday?
The forest. It was very Twin Peaksy.

What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
Our clouds peg pants. They're so fun to wear.

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
I loved 'Cities Of Lost Gold', though for awhile I thought I'd made it up because nobody else seemed to remember it.

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
Probably the Weimar Republic, so I could hang out with the Dadaists.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us?
Well I don't know, what do you like? Are you vego? How do you go with fructose? This question is really not specific enough.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
Give it a crack.

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I just sneezed (no one else is here).

Are you happy with your work/ life balance?
HA HA HA HA. Well not especially. It's a constant battle, but it is almost 5 o'clock and I'm about to leave the studio, so that's a win for today.

How do you define success?
Do you like what you're doing in general and can you eat some food today? Yes? Then thumbs up.

What's your spirit animal?
A giraffe: peaceful, slightly awkward, tree loving.

Anika will join other stallholders at the Bowerbird Design Market at Wayville Pavilion Adelaide Showground 5-7 May.
