the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
over the past few weeks i’ve been making brooches more than anything! lady bugs and fried eggs are my speciality but bees are my favourite. speaking of brooches„ andrew logan is my favourite/an amazing artist and his brooches are gorgeous. very inspirational but also tear inducing because i want them all. i went to his studio for the second time last week with my pal and it was fabulous. one day i hope to have a glitter collection as impressive as his.
my ten year old cousin have a game/challenge going where we each have to produce a ten paged book, the only rule is that each page has the theme of a number 1-10. this is my first page: ‘one box of cats’
- I’VE FINALLY STARTED A NEW SKETCHBOOK
- I haven’t drawn properly in what feels like forever so I feel like I’ve lost all ability to draw
- Hence why I haven’t posted anything although I’ve been done with school for two weeks
- I need to step my game up
five years of misery, maths, moaning and mostly meaningless lessons and i am finally done with school!!! I’ve worked so hard in the last few months and now i can get back to producing silly little drawings and making books and badges. I’M SO EXCITED!!
HUGE thanks to everyone who’s stuck around despite my lack of posts, it means so much to me, you’re all fab and i will be posting again very very soon ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ
my good pal princedongwoo tagged me in a fun lil thing so imma do it instead of revising maths !!
"you can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. hit shuffle on your ipod, phone, itunes, media player etc and write down the first 20 songs. then pass this on to 10 people. there is one rule; no skipping!"
- the streets - it was supposed to be so easy
- fidlar - paycheck
- amy winehouse - some unholy war
- lady gaga - i like it rough
- the fratellis - acid jazz singer
- beastie boys - girls
- paramore - looking up
- the view - shock horror
- the white stripes - i can’t wait
- blur - coffee and tv (live)
i’m not entirely sure how i tag people so that they see it? but i’ll try
I tag 1995ing bunsenburned and marymagenta ! (u obvs don’t gotta do it)
i’m half way through my exams now and today i’ve decided to take a well deserved day off. i’ve finished three subjects and potentially have A’s in the subjects i care most about which makes me happy so now i just gotta make it through 28 more days and 6 more exams. for my day off i’m gonna go out with a friend, dance to fidlar and make a birthday card to go with this brooch i made yesterday for my mums birthday which is on monday! it’s totally amateur but it’s the first of many. I intend to make loads over the summer (i’ve already started more but i probs won’t finish due to revision) so hopefully i’ll improve.
I’ve locked my Instagram (shrimpcrisp) cos kids in my year group found it and I don’t have many followers but if any if you were to follow me (much appreciated) I’d accept it in a heart beat. I’ll unlock when I leave in a few weeks, hopefully they’ll forget about me.
photographed is an apologetic jazmin featuring my current favourite item ~egg hairband~ courtesy of my super pal mahalia! i’ve hardly taken it off since i got it! apologies for being really inactive recently. i blame school but really i blame myself for being dumb.
your art is really cool and great <33
eeeeeeee thank you!!!!!! it’s 00:13am and you’ve already made my day because today all i have planned is dumb school work!
(super smile) <33
because I’m a baby who is worried about exam results the only art I’ve done recently is preparation for the exam WHICH I DID! and this is part of it! I made a lil book of selfies with cute backgrounds and actually manages to link it to my question!
a postcard that sums me up pretty well
11 (mostly cos I KNOW your music taste is 100% awesome)
(thank you thank you *winks*) yes i do listen to music when i draw!!! recently i’ve been listening to lost of babyshambles, the specials, fidlar, the kooks, the clash, THE GREASE SOUNDTRACK (the grease sound track a lot actually, it’s my fave) and i got libertines vinyl that has loads of odd recordings on it, that;s pretty great. music is great and drawing is great!
do i have any oc’s ? no not really! i mean, sometimes i draw people who i think up stories for, and i definitely have mental characters, but i don’t intentionally draw them or right about them. maybe i should…
