Beautiful photos from Irene Suchocki. How gorgeous are these lanterns? Her blog is called "eye poetry" and it is so true.

A picture I did today. It scans really crappily so I photographed it instead, might have to fool around in photoshop to make it look better. Its like a seaweed girl thing. I just thought of joke that I used to think was hilarious when I was little, ahem:

Why did the lobster blush?
Because the sea weed....

If only I still found that entertaining.

Some great things

Have you seen the Winter Olympics advert on the BBC? Its amazing. It was made by Studio AKA (who also made Lost and Found) and Jon Klassen, who makes beautiful, textural images. How does he make them look like that? I need to pick his brain. Incidentally he also contributed to a lovely book called "We are the Friction" which is full of imaginative stories and illustrations.

Just as I was leaving Canada back in October, promotion of the Winter Olympics had just started and there were soooo many cute cuddly versions of the Olympic mascots, I LOVE them. It took a lot of willpower not to buy one.

(spotted in Toronto)

Also whilst in Canada I discovered a cool artist called Sam Weber. His posters were up around Toronto and are haunting and surreal.

Lo Siento

Oh fail! I keep leaving big gaps in posts.

I have been busily job hunting but meeting a lot of dead ends. Being at home doing nothing was driving me to a slow death, so now I am part time working at my Dads computer shop, spending a lot of time hiding from customers who ask me things beyond my knowledge. I feel a lot better when I am keeping busy, I was getting lazy and apathetic.

Anywhoo, do you like the t-shirt I made? Should I make more? I'm hopefully going to post more art for you to comment on and you have to tell me if it is rubbish or not.

Tomorrow I am going to see Imogen Heap, so excited! She always has really inventive shows so I am looking forward to what magic she will create! I'll update with pics hopefully soon.

Anyway, I promise to be back.
