Its a Marshmallow world for me

In me, my work on July 30, 2010 at 8:55 pm

HOORAY good readers i come bearing glad tidings- i have got a job as an apprentice designer for a lovely lovely company who make christmas and easter decorations, so i think i am going to be festive all year round

If you too would like some good cheer i suggest you listen to Darlene Love and mull up a wine or cider!

a very merry un-christmas to you!

this is something i drew today whilst listening to David Copperfield on the old bbc iplayer. about five hours of Dickens has made me feel a little …odd. i am experimenting with vector images, i am not sure if they are for me, i certainly like them, i have been trying to create a goauche version and vector version of things i draw in my sketchbook- just to try out the best ways to get images finished. I must also apologise for the lack of blogging, I promise i have not been slacking, i am working hard to find a job in London so that i might be able to move in with my Mister sooner rather than later. eeep it is a tough task. but i will keep working.

something i am working on

this happy loving couple is what i have been working on in between being at my day job and sobbing at how much i miss being at uni. it is commission for a printers in Bath and i think it will need some type and background but the love birds will be the main attraction i suppose.

first things first

Well if the amount of flowers one receives is directly proportionate to the success of ones degree then judging by the many beautiful flowers i have inhabiting my room i did pretty well- indeed i got a first so i am pretty happy about that. and so is Bunny who gets to hang out in the florals now.

and whilst we are on the subject of nature, take a look at this weird thing i came across when walking my dog:

it seems all a bit Blair Witch to me. i walked down the pathway through the wooded area that i always take and walked over this spot, i noticed nothing like this. and then a few steps along it began to rain so i decided to turn back (it can not have been more than a minute later) i walked back across this spot and saw this. I imagine i simply didn’t notice it in the first instance but i must say it seemed very curious at the time. and curiouser and curiouser still now that i think about it. i hope it was some fairies.
