N to the E, double L, that's me!

Planning, planning, planning. I can feel good things a-coming. Whether the changes I am going to make are radical or subtle, they are going to happen SOON! So watch this space...
I had a pretty good weekend, drunken fun with some excellent buddies, a chance meeting with a certain someone who has been occupying my mind and a day of rest with a spot of Mario Kart on the side!
Today is apparently a good day for envisioning what we want in the future, need to focus my returning energy on creative success! It's also Chinese New Year, so I donned some red lippy and nail varnish for luck and my super-cool name necklace from Paraphernalia. Thanks Ms. Vanda!

I've been listening to Kiss A LOT recently. I don't know what's wrong with me. I really, really want to see this film:

...even though it looks like a load of guff, I feel it could be rather amusing. So please will someone fix it for me? I especially like the sound of this, 'Peter Criss (the Catman) had super agility, could leap great distances and possessed the amazing ability to make cat-related puns.' Ha ha. Amazing.

Today was quick face sketch day. Here's a couple of my favourites:

When I got home there was a copy of TEXT from the Textile Society waiting for me, with the report I wrote for them all shiny and glorious. I am a real published artiste!

Hey, I'm on it!

It was my first day back at the studio today, and boy was it cold. There was also no internet connection, which is always a blessing and a curse. I pretty much drew and chatted to my fellow crafters all day, which was pretty pleasant really. I feel a sense of anticipation, something exciting is just around the this space!
In the meantime, I was pleased to be featured in an etsy treasury for the second time. Glad to see an appreciation for glorious grey and orange!
Also, I haven't even mentioned that I'm a featured seller on Folksy this month. Praise be to the splendid Sally Fort for bigging me up!

Hear hear!

Ah, what a splendid day I've had, pottering round charity shops and stomping through crunchy snow with a dear friend, discussing future plans and feeling general merriment. Tomorrow it's back to the studio, so thought I'd allow myself one more day of fun times, just to make sure mind body and soul are ready to rock!

A little piece of my mind

Here's a little drawing I just did whilst listening to Metamorphosis read by Benedict Cumberbatch (possibly best name ever?!). I would like to say that I'll do a drawing a day and post it up, but I fear I'm not too hot at routine and will most likely tire of it soon. I've been a tad lazy of late, not really done much work over the festive season, although I was in urgent need of a rest, so I won't beat myself up too much! So starting to draw again, no matter how nonsensical, weird, rubbish or stupid the drawings may be, is really helpful for the creative process. Enjoy my stupidity!
