Va va voom- Paris 2011

Jolie le taxi- Sketchbook cover- it took me so long to remember
if french flag was blue white red or red white blue.......

An artist in the square at montmarte :)

French Pigeon
I'm always drawing pigeons in London too, this is one of my favs- with its shape and character. Usually they're hard to draw cos they are constantly moving

I was loving all the hats and long coats the guys wore in France. This guy wasn't quite so squat and disproportionate in real life!

JE'TAIME- i got these leopard print bad boys in the HnM
sale down the champse elysees, only 10e!!

Little Louvre

Yummy mocha frappucino!!! Which they dont do in my local :( Starbucks wasn't anymore expensive then the other coffee houses which were all expensive so go corporate!

Awwww The City of Love

As my friend said 'smoking is cool in france', vogue menthe filters

Remnants of my pan el chocolate

In one place we went i got cider which arrived in a bowl!
was delicious and only about 2.90 euro, way cheaper then coffee or coke!

What my friend Natasha said to a tourist couple that wanted
in photo taken outside the Notre Dame lol

This is my friend with her awesome polar bear hat- i was always trying to draw and capture her but never quite got it. Here she looks about 6.
I did about a sketchbook and a half of drawings, took a while to warm-up because i was quite lazy and apathetic over christmas with drawing. There's loads more but these are the ones i like more (at the moment!)

i miss the 1900s!!!!!!

Some letterpress work, type over magazine images/collages. 'I ate civilisation' said by the Savage in Brave New World.

frankly my dear .....i dont give a damn!

Letterpress on a page of my old calendar , nice retro 1950s dancing image.  Cant find the final one of it i used, where i tweaked colour slightly to suit rest of images for concertina book on soma (drug from brave new world, gorvernment use it to pacify the masses and keep them docile and distracted)

From Gone with the wind, playing with the infamous line from the film  and 'a gramme is better than a damn' quote from brave new world . My teachers didnt get it

A Handmaid's Tail

whoooo havent updated in a while, 2011 happened!this is some of the final images i used for my project on dystopias. I made concertina book on a handmaids tale/womens role using quotes and repitition of hands and eyes and the icon of a red hood, which covered/half covered the womens faces to represent loss of identity.

'Being seen as a sex object is so incredibly dull' Scarlet Johanson!crazytimes, she was reference for lenina crown from Brave New World.
