week...in pictures

+01 So its been along time since i've blogged something its been sucha long week, i've completed my book so this post based on my last project at university..which is quite scary, but my boyfriend helped me bind the book, and it was printed as cheap as i could get it, and i have also done my large watercolours also so everything is complete so its a good feeling i am still working hard on my prep and sketchbooks.

So these photographs arent the best quality but they are the pages from my book called remember me.. it bascially is a story about a girl called Elsa, who starts uni with low self-esteem discovers a suitcase with letters and quotes written in the 1970's by a girl called Eddie, they seem to refelect elsa life, she takes a quote everyday with the help of her new friend louise, and i have illustrated her struggle to self belief...its my first proper book made, written and illustrated by me so this is why im excited and nervous at the same time, i have been pretty pre-occupied with sorting my life out for london in a months time and the internship at Alexander Mcqueen.

Also i have uploaded some pictures of my larger paintings that will be going into the show im nervous about these too, i do a fine art course and watercolours arent very welcome which sucks big time but its all good. And also for the show, i have had a plinth specailly made for the suitcase, jumper and book :) thank you Ravi..
