Who ya gonna call... ♥

i know, i know... i've been bad again! what happened to the daily posts i hear you cry?!

well, i don't really know... it's just me being lazy + college stuff i guess!

anyway, as i may have mentioned once of twice before, one of my absolute favourite films EVER is 'Ghostbusters

i must watch this film AT LEAST once a week (along with 'the Blues Brothers' which is probably my other top fave film) sometimes more, sometimes a lot more...

anyway, since i luuuurve it soooo much and because it really is one of my favourite films i though it was about time i had a go at a little fan art piece inspired by it's sheer bloody brilliance and genius!

so let me introduce to you, the one... the only... The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man


isn't he adorable! 

...adorably EVIL!!!

ah i love him, it's one of the best bits in the film, when he appears on the streets of New York seeking out the Ghostbusters to kill them... with his marshmallowy goodness!

yaaaaaaay for Stay Puft!!!

and yay for the pure genius of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis for thinking him up in the first place! x

anyway, in other news, i've spent the past two days working on a new piece for college, it's a hand embroidered Pinup type thing and it is taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r!

i have a proper embroidery hoop and lots of lovely colourful embroidery silks + a stack of needles and threaders yet it still takes me HOURS to complete a small section of the piece!

here's a few photos so you can see how it's progressing... slowly





there's a loose sketch of the image on the back of the cotton so i'm not working completely from the photocopy which helps...

in case you were wondering, it's based on this lovely lady


so hopefully it'll look a bit more like this eventually (fingers crossed)

and that's it really i guess, i break up from college for the Xmas break officially tomorrow so hopefully i'll be able to do a post every day (ish) leading up to CHRISTMAAAAS!

i am sooooooooo excited! aaaaahhh it's nearly christmas!!!!!!

(SCREEEEEEEEAAAAAAAMMMM) 

i'll post a few snaps of our Chrimbo decorations tomorrow or... soonish (promise)

ok i'm off to make some tea now and maybe have a walk in the snow... oh yeah, i forgot to mention, it's snowing here AGAIN!

oh before i go i'll mention this as well, i'm on 49 blog followers now so i was thinking, when i hit 50 i might hold a little giveaway, i'm not sure what the prize will be yet, possibly one of my illustration keyrings or a little print of one of my pictures or something... or both, we'll see!

so to enter it you'd just have to leave a comment on the blog or on the facebook page... or something, and don't worry, you can still enter if you follow me on bloglovin or bloggers instead x


anyway, byeeee for now

that's all folks...
