‘Paralysis of choice’ – Jon Burgerman


This weekend had a fantastic start, I travelled up north to visit Jon Burgermans’ ‘Paralysis of choice’ exhibition opening (the thing I've spent my entire internship working on) and had a lovely time, mostly because I was reunited with my good uni pal Nicola!. Oh how I have missed our chats and laughs!. The exhibition opening was great although it lacked bathroom facilities - this proved very distressing for me. The after party was equally as good, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will definitely be making a return visit to Newcastle one day!.

The Loft.


Today I’ve put up my work for the re-opening of The Loft this weekend, I was a tiny bit worried that my work wouldn’t look good in the space but I was pleasantly surprised! I was also extremely happy to see Nicolas (insidethecabinetofwonder) little hand made critters again (it seems light years ago since our degree show).

Come along this Friday or Saturday if your near by!

Pugs not drugs.

I am thoroughly excited for the arrival of these babies!
Gemma Correll is MARVELOUS, a true inspiration.

Slightly obsessive.

Twilight fever has well and truly taken well as a real fever I might add.
25 days until I'm reunited with my future hubby*

* PAH..I wish.

High 5.

This weekend has been spent drawing and thinking of top 5's for a project thought up by a friend (Gregory Wood) of my intern boss. I have come up with a fair few, although the majority are rather silly and are not going to be used I will keep them for future browsing/ laughs.

I found my favourite book yesterday (How to draw anything, by Mark Linley), stuffed behind the radiator; how long for I do not know. I spent most of childhood studying this book, mostly the nudey pages (many of which are desecrated with Biro drawn male genitalia)..not done by myself of course. It just goes to show even the nicest little country side schools harbour the naughtiest of children.

For the next few days I am stranded in a strange town called Sutton, because of this I am unable to do anything remotely creative as all my felt tips and crayons have been left at home on my desk. I have been given the task (..or home work if you like) by my new bossy boss, Mr Burgerman of setting up a new website/ another blog for just my art work. I need to get on it straight away..Gap inc have used up too much of my precious time/life already and the thought of staying there beyond January depresses me slightly, OK a lot; so I better start getting my work out there for all to see!

This situation has been helped slightly as a pal from uni has asked me to contribute work to an exhibition she's curating in Nottingham, along with Nicola (Inside the cabinet of wonder) and others. More info soon I guess.

Today at work, Ipods were scarce and we were forced to put on a music disc provided by Gap. Surprisingly it had this beauty on it, for which the video brings me great joy, so much so at the end of the song when the leaf blower sounds I LOL'd whilst serving a customer. I love you Shriggers', I'd marry you..if you weren't already married?

OK, enough. Pretty post soon.

Just nipped back to Rome for 'alf hour.

I've just found my lost Rome photographs and was so happy I thought I'd share.
Oh Rome, though your streets are filled with arse groping perverts you still make me smile.

Everyone listen to Nek - La voglia che non vorrei! eee!

By night.

Today was my day off and I set myself a task to do at least a few art related things, I think I managed it?. I tend to work better at night time, don't know why..maybe it's the tea and comforting light from my lovely lamp. I probably shouldn't post a picture of stolen property on my blog but it's my favourite mug, the only one that keeps my tea remotely warm for more than ten minutes!.

Anyway, I shall return to some late night browsing through my big book of beautiful art.

Tomorrow, proper work.

Possibly the best birthday cake I've made for the mister in all our 5 years.
