Just to say that I have just put a NEW HOME card in my etsy shop. I am quite pleased with it, might make a print out of it soon too, adding a bit more to it and things. exciting.
Was being a bit of a geek yesterday and was doing lots of notes and things for my essay next year. I want to make sure that I include all the theory stuff I know (thats relevant to my topic of course), and that I get loads of research done because I want it to be good and I want to have lots of time to write it when I get back to uni. My last essay was so bad that this one needs to be amazing.I hate writing essays!
Going to London tomorrow with my mum :) Hopefully get some inspiration for this essay and for my final major project next year. Anyone know of any good exhibitions on at the moment? especially illustrationy ones. :)

I remember first seeing this painting in the Tate Museum, and falling in love with it. I sat in front of it for ages! I just love the feeling it gave when I was sat in front of it, like a pureness. seeing each layer of paint or writing, or texture. Also the fact that it is actually massive.
All four of the paintings (the four seasons series) look amazing together, and I wish I could have them on my living room wall.

ok, so whenever i sit down to draw something it normally becomes a big affair with me getting in a strop because it doesnt look right, or its not 'perfect'. Annoyingly, i know its never going to look perfect because i know im not the best drawer. Sooo, i need to start drawing loads to just get me drawing more to become more relaxed when drawing and to be able to draw something and not really mind that its a bit lop sided or doesnt look anything like what its meant to be.
so with help from lists made by the likes of Keri Smith and Michael Nobbs, I have started my mission of drawing more.. drawing everything!
Last night i chose 8 things from the above lists, that I would make myself do today.
My list is:
- Draw your morning cup of tea
- Make a sketchbook and set a date to fill it by.
- Draw while you listen to the radio
- Draw the contents of your bag
- Draw the book you are reading
- Open a cupboard and draw what you see
- Draw your shoes
- Draw your pet
Well, so far here are the results..
This is my little hand made sketch book, for me to fill up by...erm.. i havent set a date yet. i think by next week would be reasonable.
I love wallpaper, its so pretty and perfect for book covers! and its free. :)
I do have a tendancy for going round b&q just tearing of massive chunks of wallpaper as "samples". perfect.
Im going on to the rest now. Although I cant find my book that I am reading because Chris is also reading it, and I am unsure to its whereabouts. hmm....
