I have man-flu! wah!

Well this sucks some, but it is giving me a chance to catch up on some picture making, but my bed-covers are getting all painty, because i'm not leaving for no man. suck it.
I also have school tommorow and Black Maria have a gig in Exeter Saturday, so I'm downing the beechams my very good friend just wasted his lunchbreak buying for me like its Tequila and i'm 15 or something.

Busy week alltold, and i will post more pictures soon. i'm going to go find something to wipe my snotty face on...bleugh.

Moved by some beautiful dresses by Claire Armitage (search for her on ) and some seriously gorgeous reportage work by Anna Cattermole (I must find out if she has a website, I'm not sure my google hitting is bringing up the right lady) to properly pull my finger out, and explore the joy of illustration through textile design...and a song about wallpaper and heartbreak by the Black Maria Memorial Fund (please check 'em out! I am their newest member)
so watch this space! I'm loving the idea of putting together a design and having it printed digitally onto silk and wool and other lovely things, and a possible collaboration with Sarah Hunt, an immensely talented haberdasher and designer...

oh, I'm so excited I have almost forgotten my misanthropic ranting from the last post...

I start teacher training on Monday, so wish me some luck x

Congratualations and a big shout out for all the MA convecators whose shows are PVing tonight, doubt I can make it as am wearing IT hat tonight, but will be Falmouth-bound tomorrow to bother Paulie for tea, and I'll be snooping then.
The spirit of Brooker has subsided somewhat, now the weather has turned for the better. Still having minor intermittent rages at forms and being put on hold by the SLC. It's almost as if they don't want to give me free money. Baah!

Please, If you can get along to the MA Shows at Woodlane at 6pm tonight, I'm sure they'll be beautiful, and wine may be involved...

Today's nod to Illustration career...resizing images and saving to disk for streamlined fashio folio. I'll peg them on the website soon...laters
