new beginning

Hi guys,

sorry for neglecting you recently I have been so busy at work working full time, going back to uni on monday will mean more time to post as I will only be working two days a week.

So it's a new beginning, starting my second year of uni on monday and we have to have a project idea in mind for the 1st project of the year; innovative design. For once I actually feel inspired, which rarely happens to me before I've even started a project. I'm planning on basing my project on native american indian folklores from lots of different tribes including Cherokee, Makah and Navajo etc. Our project is meant to be based on something new, we are setting the trends rather than following them so I looked into Navajo prints to begin with and have found they have been in trend in Fashion for some time so I figure they will be in trend in interiors and giftware soon enough, which is what I am planning to design for.

I have also been researching other artists that base their work on folklore, not necessarily native american india folklore and legends but folklore's from all over the world. One artist that really stood out was Sanna Annuka and her amazing screen prints. Image below taken from her website :

I haven't blogged in a while I don't have internet at the moment in my new flat so fingers crossed I will have it within two weeks time which means I'll be to keep you up to date with what I am doing throughout the rest of the summer, which includes a couple of craft fairs and getting some ideas together ready for starting my 2nd year at uni! Last year went so fast, it's quite scary that Damien will be graduating this time next year and the same for me in two years time.
I've also scored myself a part time job in a lovely organic and health food store called Millies :) , about time, after applying for over 30 jobs in Leeds ha!
Anyways, you won't hear from me again for about another two weeks so I bid you farewell for now!

i went to the show last night, loved seeing some old faces, and i've been working on the designs i mentioned in my previous post, not sure if they are working out how i wanted them to though, remember they are meant to be for the top of kitchen chalk boards. any comments would be much appreciated.

tonight i'm off to my old college to go and see the degree that i was on before i moved to Leeds, final show :) i'm quite excited actually, will be nice to see a few old faces too.
i'm also in the process of sending a design to a guy on ukhandmade, just need to wait until i get back to Leeds on thursday to use my scanner. He's looking for designs to go on kitchenware chalkboards so i'm thinking of using some of my house designs from my previous project and spruce them up a little, we shall see how it goes, fingers crossed!

i've also decided what my next project will be on.. i know i'm a little bit early but it's going to be based on surbubia and the classic street as i enjoy drawing little quirky houses so much it should be right up my street haha.

oh well toodle pip :)

so i'm back in newcastle for a week and have no way of uploading any photos of my work so instead i thought i'd upload a few of my original illustrations from my last project, then upload the photos when i get back to leeds.

also i need a shopping spree, especially with glastonbury festival coming up, i need some serious summer/festival clothes so etsy and eBay here i come.
