Oh no I didnt...

Un-officially the most neglected blog on the interwebs...? Well, maybe, after http://www.tumblr.com/blog/fuller-circle .... or http://365project.org/empotential/365 ....

Yeah so that project? Didnt happen. Shocker! :-b Ah well. I'm still full of intention. And sometimes that does push something out there into the world. I've started doing some sketching at work which is good. Working on tattoo designs (for myself) and other random drawing practise.

Just for the sake of adding *something* ... a couple of versions of a photo I took (fairly) recently....

New year, new project

In addition to my "new camera" Project 365 (which, by the way, is going pretty well, aside from my sporadic uploading) I've decided to celebrate the 2012 Chinese New Year of the Dragon with another project. This one is to encourage me simply to make more art. Hence I'm pledging to make one original piece of art/ craftwork each week, and post it as my fb 'cover' image for one week.

So here is week 1:

Seemed fitting to start with some dragon sketches

Red balloon

Well I was pretty much forced to do this, using the tools available (Gimp in this case).... I looked out my office window to see a little red balloon flying away, past clouds and patches of blue sky. I was too slow (it was too fast) to grab my camera and even if I'd managed, it would have been a dot with the strength of my zoom! Needs must.

Clearly I couldn't be bothered with the detail in the foreground! The sky and balloon are what matters.

New book

I started a book this week, for the first time since finishing college over a year ago. Yesterday and today were mostly spent with a spot of paper cutting.

I did something else!!!

The dress
Well, this is what I have been working on every Wednesday evening for the last couple of months or so....! Not the best picture, but still, evidence of my creation :) Had a lot of very nice comments on facebook and one commission even! 
Oh and I also finally have that purple hair I was talking about....!

I DID SOMETHING!!!

Wooooo!! I actually did something!! I made cupcakes....! They were kind of supposed to be made for a friends Tiki Blowout all-weekender at The Lanes, but I also had a sponsored Bristol-Bath skate (13 miles approx) and Roller Derby practice that weekend, so it didnt happen. I had however promised cakes to any Briz-Bath skaters who finished so I made them the following weekend anyway... I made a whole big batch so just took them to practice Sunday :)

Here's one cake... (There was meant to be a little icing lei draped on top, but the flowers took soooooooo long to make, and the leis to assemble I gave up in the end!)
