This song by Rosie Lowe is so fucking good. For those of you who like James Blake I think you’ll be in for a treat with this. It reminds me of old Portishead too. I’ve been listening to it non stop this week, its one of those good songs to sing your tits off too. Enjoy x
One thing I have wanted to write about was this rather magical film me and Tim saw. Spike Jonze is an absolute genius and so I knew it would be a masterpiece, and it was. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, you really should! The look of the film is so nice, every detail has been thought up and everything from the office space, to the bedroom to the clothes they wear is so cool. It’s basically a love story and what makes this so different from any other love story is that it shows you what love is, in its most stripped back and minimal form. It doesn’t have a sexuality or a race, in this case it doesn’t even have a body or a sex. It just illustrates how important companionship and compassion is and it manages to do it in the most beautiful way. I obviously cried, non stop though the film because thats all I ever do at films, or adverts, or dogs… or anything because I’m a pussy. But seriously its such a lovely film. And I totally want to bone Joaquin Phoenix.

Week 5 & 6. So as well as working full time and moving house I’ve also continued with my screen printing every monday. Its the best feeling in the world, I didn’t realise just how great it made me feel. I think when you have been creative all you life its so important that you keep it up. It’s so easy to get bogged down in all the necessities that you actually forget to do the things that are just as important for you. That doesn’t really make sense but for me, like I have to work to pay the bills and I have to walk the dogs because they need walking and I have to clean the house because it gets dirty, but I never really give myself time to do the stuff that makes me tick. I’ve made a promise that this year after the course finishes I’m going to keep it up. I think its heath. Anyway I’m talking shit… So last week I set up all my screens and started printing and this week I made a small video of the final layer in my CMYK prints. The final layer is K (black) and so when that layer is added the whole thing comes together. There is still lat more work to be done but its a nice way of showing you the progress. Next week I’ll show you some more and the first finished ones should be ready. Fuck yeah!

I recently saw these illustrations and completely fell in love with them. A very talented lady.

I love it
So finally the move has happened! After two years of living in what can only be described as a science project I have moved into my new gorgeous home! I don’t want to sound like one of those smug cunts who shows off how nice their house is but fuck it! I lived in a house where the walls were crumbling and the floor boards were rotting under my feet! So this really does feel like a dream. Me, Tim, Terrence and Gilbert live in our lovely new home with our two best friends. I’m so happy. We have only been here a week and so I’m still finding things in bags and boxes but its all worth it. Its dead posh! And finally I feel like I’m living in the kind of place I deserve to be living in. At the end of the month me and my other flatmate are having a belated birthday/housewarming party. So excited. Anyway thats enough now because I am smug as fuck and knowing my luck the roof will fall down… our big posh penthouse roof with skylights. I’ll stop now.
This rather magical music video is by “We are Shining” and the track is called wheel. I really want to get into video animation illustration stuff, this video is fucking wicked and the song aint half bad either! Enjoy x
Hooray! I’m back.
