Here's an illustration I did in college. It is based on Puccini's opera number "Senza Mama" from Suor Angelica.

I wanted to show you some cute stuff I bought last weekend when I went shopping with my mum.

In a large tunnel near Waterloo station there is an explosion of amazing graffiti. I'm not talking about your average train station vandalism but proper street art. When Josie did a course in Street Fashion Photography she asked me to model (I'm using the term 'model' very loosely:) in the tunnel, and I also photographed her. It was a really fun project!

Today I have had a really busy but boring day, didn't have time to do anything fun or creative... So to cheer myself up I'm gonna show you an illustration of Swedish singer Robyn that I'm really pleased with. Hope you like it too!

This weekend my mum was here to visit me, yay!
One of the best things about having someone over is all the yummie food and cute cafés you can find when you have time to stroll around London. On our first day we went to Angel which is a great little area of London, that's where I photographed these amazing meringues in the window of a place called Ottolenghi.
and later found this precious little shop opposite of Spitalfield's Market. If you are ever around Liverpool St Station in London you must visit this shop! It's so cute and the couple that owns it are lovely. And they make the best sandwiches I have ever tasted! Make sure you try their special home-made mango chutney-mustard...

Thought I'd show you some old-fashioned (stop motion) animation I did back at university during my first animation course. They are very simple but I still like them, they're cute and remind me of how excited I was to see my drawings move for the first time!

Today I have been working on a new illustration for my profile picture here on Blogger. I liked the photo but thought it was a bit boring in black/white, so I drew a self-portrait for the first time since school. What do you think, does it look like me?

My old friend Nina came to London over the weekend, it was so good to see her again! We went to our old workplace Hard Rock Café and had way too much food, danced to country rock and laughed at old memories.
On Sunday James and I had a little Valentine's dinner. He bought me an awesome remote control for my dslr camera, now I can photograph myself! Pictures to come...
I hope you had a nice Valentine's weekend too!
Nina and her boyfriend Axel.
An old photo of Nina, I think she looks like a 1950's movie star here!

At a recent catering job I did all the staff were dressed up as magical characters from fairy tales. It was so much fun! I was dressed as a 19th century princess. I loved the dress, unfortunately we weren't allowed to take photos on the fairy tale set so this shot doesn't do it justice, but you can see my amazing hair creation! The dress was sooo warm though, and it was heavy to carry around all the underwire on my hips. Don't know how the women could stand it in those days!

The portfolio review was great! The designer that looked at my work was so helpful and he even said some of my work was 'amazing', yay! I also met a lot of lovely people, it was fun to mingle with other graduates and designers. If you are a design graduate in London and want a professional designer to help you with your portfolio I recommend signing up to Consurgo.
Shoredith is a funny area of London, it has got some really funky cool bars and shops, but there are also extremely weird places. On the way home I walked by this massage parlor called "T's Massage. Would you go there for a rub?
