I have had the busiest week of my life. I cannot believe I survived it! I had the dundee university dance show, and many rehearsals, uni classes, AND our class fundraiser. But thankfully it's all done now. All were successful except my uni work. But i will get back into it. I even managed to drag myself into uni for a short time today, which I personally think is impressive! I have too much to do and very little time to do it in. The degree show is being held in DOJ this year, not brilliant but nothing we can do about it.

Instead of uni work tonight I have started watching The Fall it's so beautiful.

Regina Spektor lyrics which link quite well with my project at moment. I really like numbers and words.

"She like to keep her body clean clean clean. Thought the world could be quite obscene"


My space

Thought I'd post a few pictures of my desk or let you look at my art influences at the moment. I think all the images on my desk are inspirational in some way. They also mean I don't have to stare at blank boards as well as sketchbook pages! I know I probably should've tidied up my desk before taking the photos (just taken on my phone, so not great quality, despite my phone claiming to boast 8 megapixels) but I guess it shows how I'm working at the moment. I made some sort of progress this week by taking an image (sadly taken from google) and playing around with it on photoshop. I've experimented with numbering the surgical way of washing hands to show repetition of the daily routine and OCD. I am just worried that with all this fundraiser pr-ing that my uni work is disappearing rapidly. Last semester was more productive AND I had a dissertation to write. Balls. Anyway here's some of the flutter books I made... must persist with working not procrastinating!

Cheap Monday

I just like that word play, the fashion is pretty cool too.

I can't seem to get into this semester. I am of course freaking out about this because it is my last semester of doj. It's strange that I can feel both fear of leaving the safety of art school, but wanting to make it on my own too. Sigh. I am doing my project on daily routines. I'm not sure how to illustrate it as of yet, and trying desperately not to have a melt down about it all. But it's not easy. Everyone seems in a similar (ish) boat though. It's just a bit over whelming, that after almost five years of intensive art training, that it's almost finished.
