in other news: phill bought the LCD Soundsystem Final show 5lp box set and we took loads of selfies with it because it’s pretty great - we can’t listen to it for another few weeks because we haven’t got our record players in halls (a big sigh) but i’m really tempted to buy one too now i’ve seen how nice it is (80quid though)
another cool thing is that phill came over and helped me film part of my final project, a film of my pot getting fired (diy kiln aka hat box ha ha), he carried a ton of stuff and borrowed a really cool camera, we were up till 3 playing with the dimmer switches n covering the lights in the kitchen with blue gels…
even more exciting news !!! i’m interning with puck collective at pick me up this year! going to be working the 1st, 2nd, 3rd + 5th May all day so pop down and hang out, we’re hosting a live drawing battle next friday!

I’m back in london after having a sweet two weeks a home. I definitely sunk back in to having loads of lay ins and being a bit too distracted to do any work…. I spent last thursday hanging out with my pottery teacher and glazing my two mantle piece dogs which I made in september. The kiln opened this morning so hopefully I’ll be able to hold them in real life + show them off in our flat next year ! the one in the foreground is the bossy one of the two, not to be messed with and the one behind likes chasing plastic bags in the wind mostly. (i have decided)
my day travelling was as follows: surbiton - waterloo - elephant and castle - catford (the pottery supply place didnt sell glaze) so - farringdon - liverpool street - white heart lane station to walk to an industrial estate and buy two little pots of blue glaze !! it was a bit of an adventure + especially cool to find out grayson perry uses the same suppliers (forever in my heart)

Anonymous asked: hello! what did you take for A levels? also, did you do an art foundation course? thanku !
hello! I did art and design, photography and english literature! I got into university without an art foundation- which was super lucky. I reckon it’s because art and design was really open and allowed me to experiment with different media and a range of ideas. I also did quite a bit of art practice in my spare time, going to clubs and submitting work to blogs and things!

Anonymous asked: pls could you say where you got the art supply trolly that was in a room post you did a couple of months ago! i remember seeing one here i think and cant find anything like it anywhere
hiya! I bought it from IKEA, its not actually for storing art supplies but for storing kitchen utencils, I thought it would be a perfect trolley for storing all my things in a much more orderly manner opposed to throwing everything in a box. here u go xx

a couple of lil personal things i’ve been working on which I’ve been waiting to post because I didn’t want my parents to see them before they got to them! The top card is (in my opinion) an accurate representation of my dad whos birthday it is today and the one below is for my mum for mothers day. You guys RULE ! I can’t wait to see them both and put my arms around them next weekend! :—)
i’m only really getting my head around photoshop going to keep working on it but it’s definitely hard when i’m so critical about my own illustration-y things.

on monday i got a kool opportunity to draw on phills film shoot!
I turned up thinking i’d just be drawing as much as I could but I got roped in to being an extra and dancing to 90s songs all afternoon. I had just over an hour off after lunch so I squeezed in a couple of drawings but there was so much going on I found it really difficult to focus my energy on one thing without getting distracted. I’m definitely going to go back one afternoon on my own to do some more location drawings. It was a really great opportunity though and it was really fun learning about the process of film making and meeting phills course friends.
a girl in his group came up to me and said “i was talking to phill about the project and he stopped replying and then it looked like the sun had shone on his face, so i looked to see what he was looking at and it was you! its so cute how happy you made him!”

the amount of money i owe to my university library account is a close representation of how difficult it is for me to take books back that i’ve fallen in love with. This book on the Barbican is a good example of this, it’s so beautiful- here are some scans from it to help me through returning it.

There are few Internet cats who I have elevated to some sort of higher level of catdom. There’s Maru, Pusheen, and then there’s Billy.
Billy is the cat of Ruby. I only became of aware of Billy through multiple posts Ruby put on her Tumblr. After seeing Billy’s first picture, I was hooked. Ruby told me that Billy is celebrating a birthday soon, and in honor of this milestone, Ruby is going to do a zine dedicated to Billy. She asked that I contribute something, and I couldn’t stop from saying YES quickly enough.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BILLY!!

last week i also made this dress ! I was invited to tea at phillips nans house and I was going through a bit of a wardrobe crisis (aka I wanted the feeling of new clothes but not having to actually buy anything) and i bought gingham fabric for £5 and made this! It was also really fun to channel my procrastination into something productive + also non related to my course!!
watching x-files and trying to do two projects at once — writing an essay about women in the media which is SUPER fun but everything is fun until you have to be graded on it
