A bit of random stuff

Hallooooo! Probably last post before i go away. As you know if you've been following me, i'm doing Art workshops in the library where i work throughout August. Well, they put me in the brochure! yaaaay! .....

And this next picture, well its erm, a bit of fun. I was cleaning out my paint palette in prep for going away, and this happened:

I thought it was pretty awesome that it was a gradient and all i was doing was cleaning it! My mam and dad however didn't quite agree when i made them come upstairs especially to see it. Oh well! It amused me :D

Take care

New Designers

This week was New Designers. It was a brilliant yet tiring experience an i'm very glad i got the opportunity to go. I don't quite think my style of art is necessarily "in" at the moment, the work getting most of the attention was the more graphicy, block colour type of work, but still, i came away from the experience feeling inspired. I got the chance to speak to an agency about my work and got some really good feedback and advice as to what my target audience should be, which is always handy to know :) Anywho, heres some photos of the event:

I'm going on holiday this weekend for two weeks, so there probably wont be alot happening around here for a while, but hopefully when i get back there will be lots to post :)

Take care
