An intersting take on a classic...

The Emperor's Club

I think this is beautiful.
Im not even sure why.
Firstly, Im sure it's the colours, lots, bright but muted, like low opacity.
Layers is proably something else Im attracted too.
Strong element of pattern and structure.
The mix of straight verticals with swirls.

I want to doodle.


You know what I miss? Sketchbooks.
There really is a difference between Sketch and Module and I'm preferring the old ways at the moment.

I shall create my own sketchbooks [HOPEFULLY IF I HAVE MAKE TIME], I wonder if they can be marked later on? Although, there would be more than one project ideas in it...hmm

These are some inspiring images from the Sketchbook Flickr pool.

I've always been [RUBBISH] at sketchbooks, and it wasn't until National Diploma Yr2 and seeing what the
A Level kids were doing, that I actually WANTED to do them. So I will. I think.


I found this set of brilliant packaging via yes please blog.

It's clever. And looks good.
I mean, I'd have it on show at home!

One down

First module is all handed in.

Presentation went alot better than I thought...and has cemented the fact that I want to do a placement at Tigerprint...maybe next Summer? Although, I don't believe that I am good enough to do my own briefs etc I feel as though, I should have my own style before going somewhere so...wow.

I want to do me-art now.
Must finish other projects first.

Too busy for blogging...

And yet here I am.

I'm thinking during the holidays [SINCE WE HAVE UNTIL FEB] I will focus on inspirations.
I will blog more.
I will blog more designery-arty-crafty- things.
I will start one of those sketchbooks that's sitting on the 'sketchbook' shelf.


Lists lists lists

I have my lists.
I know what needs to be done.
I know what cant be done.

Question is, where to start?

Artists survival guide

Looky loo



So I feel MUCH better today.

Just arrived home from Leeds, Bradford and Tigerprint Studios.
It was amazing.
Im doing the right course. Most definately.

Im actually excited to do my presentation and write my report.
I even have a propostition for the designers of UCS...

Death becomes her

Im so tired. And stressed.
I honestly, have no idea how I am going to get all that I need to do in the time I have to do it.
It's 2 weeks until the end the semmester, I've already compromised most of my projects so far with having to work so much to pay the fees...

Does anyone have Bernard's Watch?
