Sweeties, Fairies and Birthday's

It’s the start of the last two weeks of this current term, which means I have only two weeks to try and get EVERYTHING finished! Right now this seems like a totally unachievable task but hey, I always love a challenge! nah. But jokes aside, I am once again starting to feel the little panic pixies settling around me! In fact, the only project that is nearing possible completion is my Hospital Art project, purely because it consists entirely of my illustrations of sweeties and fairies. The rest of the projects… well right now I feel that there is little or no chance of completion! However on a slightly lighter note, it’s my 18th Birthday next Sunday (the 31st) and the Bday cards have started to arrive! + I just bought myself a snazzy new mobile phone, and i have a brand new online portfolio (that's right, yet another one!) check it out here. so i guess there are some good times as well as the bad. oh well, onwards and upwards! L2a :-D x

killer zombie heels and krazy keyrings

i've had to stay in aaaaallll day today. but instead of feeling sorry for myself, i have embraced my lazy saturday in and have created a few new pieces of work. firstly there is the drawing of the utterly amazing 'zombie heels' by Iron Fist. 

i see them in town every week and am inexplicably fascinated by these crazy shoes! see the real thing here. next came the cute little keyrings that i have been dying to make all week. i bought the clear empty keyrings on tuesday and have been trying to think of things to put in them. it took me a while to draw the pix sooo small but i managed to finish them in the end. :-D

lots o' love :-D xxx

helter skeltering

Only a few weeks of this term left now and the pressure is really starting to pile on. I have now decided to design a ‘Manx’ (as in the nationality of the Isle of Man) mural of my own illustrations for the Hospital art comp. I can’t go into it too much (it is classified info lol) but hopefully it will be an improvement on my other ideas. The yearbook isn’t going very well, or rather it isn’t ‘going’ at all as the class can’t stop arguing about it. I’ve given up and am doing a few illustrations for it instead. The landscape paintings/sketches are ok, I’m starting to enjoy it a bit more now, I wish the same could be said for the Douglas art comp, struggling a LOT with that one. Anyway, just an update on my rapidly spiralling out of control life. i fell like i'm on a crap helter skelter! oh well, Lots o’ luv x :-D

ps: i don't really feel like doing any college homework, i think i'll go do a few new illustrations instead :-D

live projects

So, 2 weeks in and once again I’m beginning to struggle! This term we have been given a series of ‘live projects’ to work on. These include a competition to design a pice of artwork for the local hospital, a competition to paint a scene of Douglas (the island's capital) to hang in the local museum, a competition in which we produce a body of work (watercolours and sketches) of local landscapes as well as making the yearbook for the College Art dept leavers. The only reason I am struggling is because I have so many ideas swirling around my head I don’t know where to start. So in true ‘me’ style I have spent this weekend drawing things, things that have absolutely nothing to do with my college work :-D it’s a bank holiday weekend as well  which means I will undoubtedly spend the rest of today drawing things! Blissful indeed :-)
Here’s the first finished drawing of today. 'link' Enjoy… L2a xxx :-D
