passing time.

Trying to make the days go by quicker seems to be working quite well. Since finishing my final project i've been doing what i do best, some illustration! I'll put decent images up when i've done a bit more. Untill then I will continue to enjoy the summer while it lasts!

Fashion joy.

Yesterday was brilliant! i got to see the lovely Charlies (Theteadrinkingenglishrose) work which was very impressive! such lovely designs and a beautiful display! Afterwards i had the opportunity to view the NTU fashion design catwalk show which was also fabulous! They are a very talented bunch and I'd love to wear many of their collections.

This week began with a beautiful four mile walk through the countryside, A chance to gather my thoughts and idea's on the coming weeks of mayhem but also the feeling of excitement knowing some marvelous packages were on their way to me!.
I've only known about Jon Burgerman for a short time but I'm absolutely in love with his work, it has inspired me to go out and buy numerous pens and draw on everything with a suitable surface! His very colourful book arrived yesterday and it is a very good read (observing mostly). Thanks to Jennings' I've discovered something else to throw my student loan money at, my tatty Divine name necklace arrived this week, admittedly a little late but lovely none the less.
This is the last week of normal studio time at uni, next week is full on clear out mode and putting work up, scary stuff! I prefer working at home to be honest (Plenty of tea at hand as you can see) but for memories sake I've made the most of this last working week and it's been a lot of fun. To top it off we've had the mother of all storms which was wonderful to watch but a tad scary! If only i could of captured the lightning!.

I have had a wonderfull birthday!
Sadly it's over shadowed by the fact that the degree show is in 3 weeks, knowing this..i should be hard it today but instead the picnic basket is calling and so are the derbyshire dales.

I hope the rain holds out!
