In London we drank a lot of coffee, sat around in parcs and watched people. I got educated on British culture (Whitnail and I, crumpets, tea with milk, etc) by my two favourite british girls, and of course we did some shopping.
I bought a lace buttonup, a floral 3-pound dress, fluffy animals that we made into earrings and lobster will turn into a ring, a moodring and Oh Comely. Oh Comely is perfect and full of cute images / illustrations and stories.
My lace button-up has the most beautiful collar in the world, so I made tons of photobooth pictures.
A couple of weeks ago, I received my copy of Sova Nr.1 - Sleep. It is a independent, self-published magazine full of people I adore and love (and many more), all put together by my favourite cat. And there is pink and see-through paper, which is always a big plus.
It was definitely one of the nicest things I've received in a while ♥.
I painted, clayed, drew, textile'd my butt off, but I made it through this quarter, with better grades than I would've ever expected. Now two free weeks. It feels weird not being in school pretty much 24/7, but it's a good change. I'm going to London tomorrownight to spend a few days with two wonderful girls. I am extremely excited and I wish it was monday morning already.
Tomorrow is my evaluation of the past 10 weeks. I'm extremely nervous and staying up tonight to finish the last things (and probably tomorrow as well, knowing myself).
This picture is a little sneakpeak of what I've been doing. The two paintings on the left are mine. They're both selfportraits and I'm quite happy about it. The other two are from Lotta, and our paintings looked very good together. I am now adjusting one of the paintings and need to wait for it to dry. It's getting light! lovely.
So I've been drawing again, because we have to. And I actually really like drawing, but I just don't have much time for it. In fact. I don't have time to do this either, because I should be painting. whoo.
To All My Friends played a gig in Bremen and I wasn't there because I was here, working on my shapes. But they stayed over at Martin's place who was so kind to skypecall me during their soundcheck and theyareamazing. <3
I also can't draw faces. I have a collection of faceless people in my notebook now.
Today was a good day because my painting-teacher liked my work for the first time in my life. I'm really really happy. It were the tiny paintings (not bigger than 8 cm). It was fun to do as well. I like myself as a babyhunter (last picture).
The first three pictures are details of a much bigger (2 meter x 1,5 meter) painting we made of what you can see when you look down at your nose with one eye closed (yes..) It's a brush, a boob and a sock.
I'll go into my last 2 weeks now. And I still have a lot to do. For example, 5 nudepaintings on those 2x1,5 paper. Wish me luck!
