doodles and silver....


Hello wonderful new followers...I want to welcome you all to my little blog, anytime you wanna talk please get in touch, i dont think i say that as often as i should.
Well anyway since i have been away from my blog, i have been busy with work, making and drawing.
Oh and buying vintage clothes and perving on the stalls at spitalfields market i bought a pendant and the ring above was from a little stall in spitalfields, the man was a bit weird but i really like the jewellery so it out-weighted having to talk to him for 5 minutes hehe.

I have decided with my first wage packet i am buying myself some new vans shoes, navy i think...boring but practical and my £2 primark plimpsols are on their last legs, so i have decided that it is probably for the best. I have a few things set aside to buy which i feel a bit naughty about it but i wish to cheer myself up.
I have been spending my time getting back into my drawing like i spoke about in my last couple of posts, it all came back to me (drawing) once i relaxed and put pencil to paper. It also came with the help of a new secret book i am illustrating about the last 2 months and the things that have happened to me. Its really given me alot of positive things to focus on. I just wanted to take the time now and thank all my followers on my blog and twitter for the positive vibes you have all been sending me recently about my heart-break, shop stresses and life. Very wonderful thank you.

On another note has anyone ever seen the film what's eating gilbert grape? i am probably a good 18years behind everyone else, i watched it yesterday morning at 6.00am when i couldn't get back to sleep and i was waiting for the rest of the family to wake up, i thought the film was wonderful, not to mention it has johnny depp in, added bonus on a day when i was feeling down, does anyone else ever get that? they have a dream...not a depressing one and you just wake up like "Oh" i always get that, anyway after the film i decided to illustrate into my secret book, i am working on. I will let you all know about it in due time, its just a little idea at the moment and i dont want to be laughed at. Above are some little drawings from it. It is kind of a visual diary to help me get through a few things....silly i know but the artist in me is dyeing to draw something.

  6. Loooove that film :D

    I love to draw too, always forget just how much I love it until I get back into it. I have a huge, overflowing box file full of half finished illustrations I've never had a chance to get back to...one day.

  7. I think planning what your gunna treat yourself too is totally allowed :) I really want some burgundy vans but I haven't been able to justify purchasing them yet! I'm so glad you're back into drawing, I really want to get back into it too but it's hard finding times when free time and inspiration arrive at the same time xx
