my favourite artist/painting/book

audrey kawasaki has been a large influence on my textiles for a long time - the way she paints reminds me of art deco paintings, most of the time the only word i can use to describe her paintings is beautiful! i have done two transcripts of her work and they are on my flickr (i posted a link on an earlier blog) but anyway, here is my favourite by her:

my favourite painting is not by kawasaki, its by john william waterhouse and is titled 'the lady of shalott'. i've always thought it was a beautiful painting, ever since i saw it when i first read the poem the painting is based on.

and lastly, my favourite book is definitely fresh fruits. it's based on a japanese fashion magazine.. and makes me wish i had the confidence to dress just as they do!! i love spending ages looking through this book at all the different ways they all dress, it's always extremely inspiring!

so today i have been tidying my room, due to a room inspection tomorrow.. i think i've done a pretty good job!! bearing in mind the hoover completely smells like vomit.. ain't nice!

last weekend i went home, it was nice to see my cats.. and family again! i also picked up a few things to bring back to norwich - one being my pocket gameboy! i was so stoked to find that, and then turns out i cant find ANY of the games.. i seriously had a gazillion! so i bought four online last night. nostalgia is a word that comes to mind. i should do a project on all of the characters from these games i played as a grew up, would be kinda cool! a break from cats and japan methinks.. haha!

i'll add some pictures of my beautifully clean room later on... and maybe some sketches from my new project!


here are some pictures of my room. strangely this room feels more like my own then any other bedroom i've ever had.. possibly because i've always had to share with a sister!

busy busy busy!!

so yesterday i spent about.. ten hours working on a project ive had for two weeks!! i did complete it luckily enough!.. it took me from 2.00-11.00 pm!! i did take a break to erm, clean the kitchen.. god knows why.. i guess i just didn't want to do my work!!

so afterwards my room looked like a bomb had hit:

however it no longer does, i tidied up quite well - filled three whole bin bags hahaha!
certainly taught me i should plan alot further ahead - rather than trying to wing it all the time.. that doesn't mean i won't be doing this again!!

see that ludicrous display last night??

today i did alot of wandering.. during my wanders i wandered into HMV and debated whether or not to buy the IT crowd boxset. i didnt and now i am sincerly regretting it!! maybe i shall go back tomorrow.. all three seaons for £20 is a bargain!!

i also have realised my new love for impressionism.. during a drawing class today.. here are a couple of shots of my favourite pieces :
