have a good day! Kimxo
I thought I would share some photos of my workspace at the moment. My parents are moving the whole house around, so I'm in the conservatory- so TONS of light! Which is great for making and photographing, but gives my screen as massive glare in the daytime. haha.I got these awesome cup and jug for my paints. They are pretty much my favourite thing at the moment. :D I got some lovely records today, when Mum and I went thrifting! One of them is a Beach Boys album, and the Barbra-ann song is soooo funny. It reminds me of Keith Moon and the Who playing it and messing up a lot. aw. I love the who so much. so so much.Just thought I would share that. [: I went to a friend's house last night and at one point they put on 'dance' music or popular funky stuff, and I had never heard any of them before. hahaaaa. Just shows you how much of a granny I am. I just like funny sounding old guys with cheeky rhythm and a lot of attitude.
I've been keeping up my photobooth photos, (i've been trying to take some to make one of these each week, while my hair grows) and I'm having to be really creative with some of my hairstyles cause it's such an awkward length. :]If you've got any hair tips, let me know. I might do a bouffant week this week. I can't wait to wear pigtails, oh my gosh! (that's my cat, by the way. her name is Negative- like a black and white photo. haha)
It's almost easter! I'm going to try and post before the weekend. My friends and I are thinking of making an easter egg/treasure hunt? mayybbeeeeeeeee. :]
My hair is getting longer and I love it! I've also been working on a photography class for this summer, and I've editing lots of pictures. here are a couple that make me smile from last oct;[: thank you to everyone who posted on my giveaway post saying what you like& what you'd like to see more of. I'm really happy that I'll be able to give you what you want! I love my blog and my readers. so thanks again.
Kara and I also have another one of our collaborations to show you. [: This one is called 'GAP'.
See them in their set here or here. This is the 'QUIET' one. [:
I'll draw the winner for the giveaway tomorrow or monday, so last chance to enter!
I bought a new sketchbook yesterday, and a few new pens. Sometimes that's all you need to get started on something.
One of the things I struggle with (daily!) in college is the fact that everyone in my class seems to have their own way of drawing people and I lack severely in that area. I'm not good at it- I have to work really hard at it, and drawing from my imagination- FORGET IT! Considering that I'm on an Illustration Course, this presents some serious problems, and over the past 6+ months I've been learning, literally from scratch, and trying to overcome this.
These are few photos of some people I've tried to characterize. This is really new to me, and I feel all vulnerable posting this- but It's all part of the learning process, so here they are, the next step in learning people-drawing.At the moment, I have no idea if my little people will stay looking that way- I expect they will change a lot as I search for something that feels 'me'.
Speaking of college, here is a photo one of my friends took outside our studio (she had a roll to finish). There's more to come, later.Thanks to everyone who's commented on the giveaway post! I'm really glad you like my journals/drawings, and that you're so interested in the course I'm taking. That's actually why I'm sharing this with you today! :]Love, Kimxo
p.s. If you're in Viv's (polkadotrobot) journal class, there is a sneak peek at one of my never-before-shown journals on the class blog!
