Cry for Help!


Would anybody like to help me out? My flickr account is going to run out on 3rd November and I’ll loose all of my work thats on there online to only a few pieces, since I have only £1.70 in my bank, and owe the library £39.50 before I can get books out so I can do my essay, this is a cry out to anyone who’s feeling generous enough to buy me a new account. It’s just $24.99 for a year, and I’ll post to you, with my £1.70, an original print of this piece I did a few year ago.

Thank you and good night.

If you you’re feeling generous and would like to help me out and get yourself a FREE print, the link is here:

Also, I've now got myself a Tumblr account, which I will be posting stuff on, probably more regularly than I do on here. If you have Tumblr please follow me and I'll follow you back and we can spread tumblr love all over the place!

In other news, I think I mentioned that my work that I did for Funky Toadstool last year was featured in Augusts' Vogue Magazine.
Heres it is.
VOGUE!



Made some progress with my Mary painting... I've added Gold Leaf to it, which is possibly my new favorite hobby. I'm just going to gold leaf everything I own I think. It's so fun to use, and makes a mess which is always a bonus.
Here's how she stands at the moment.

A little bit of work.
I've been teaching myself illustrator (about time), and using my flatmates' tablet, I need to desperately get me one of those things, seriously amazing and saves so much time, things that would have taken me half an hour with a mouse took me 2 seconds with the tablet.
Gorgeous.

Flyer for my other halves bands' gig.


And new flyer for Funky Toadstool, who I did work for last year, which is featured in August's Vogue magazine! I'll get a scan soon!

I finally have internet after being in the new place for a month and a half. 
Heres my new place. Its just a window.

Went to see City and Colour last Monday and Tuesday. Been waiting for that moment for 3 years. He did a little tour here in the UK back in 2007 but my parents wouldn't let me travel to Leeds to see him. Anyway. It was the greatest 2 days ever. AND he remembered me and Sam from the Bordeline shows Alexisonfire did this time last year.
Monday night we were on the balcony and Tuesday night we were right at the front, which was amazing. 
Heres a little photography I took.

I also gave him print number 2/50 of the watercolour prints I did and got him to sign the first print for me. 
What a lovely man he is. 
Nicest person ever.

Even though University has finished for the year, I still feel like I havent stopped! 
Going to be moving into my new place in the next 2 weeks so it's going to be busy packing etc!
I've been looking for a job while building a portfolio! 
Heres a sneak preview.

Super busy times at uni! 
I'm done now though! 
Decided to get myself back into watercolour since its been about a year since I properly watercoloured. It'll be a year since I started the Dallas Green watercolour, which is available (print) to buy from me for a small cost of £35. Limited to 50 prints, all signed and numbered by yours truly. If you want a copy let me know.

Todays subject was Dita. 
Although I'm not happy with the shape of the face so I think I'll probably be re doing it. Going to be getting some paintings and illustrations done soon to go up in the Independent Arts Centre in Leicester so if you're local go and take a look, its a great place with some good art!

Finally, after alot of procrastination, got my animation done! 
Here's some screen shots. Its not completely edited with audio yet so video will come soon. 
Enjoy!

Started to animate Cecil today. 
Heres a test animation to make sure hes working properly, its only short though. 
Blink and you'll miss it. 
Literally.
I did another one before this one which is available for your viewing pleasure on my flickr, but I prefer the lighting in this one. He's in the moonlight here.

Also I'd like you to meet Claudia, who will also appear in my animation.



Cecil in his natural habitat.
Animation that I'm finally getting round to doing after months of putting it off... 
I really hate animation, only because I cant do it.

I was watching parts of snow white last night (when I should have been doing work) and found that I think I'm actually the wicked witch....


And today I'm having an intense work day/getting very messy with ink...
