I realise that it’s like 3 days to Christmas now so this is a bit of a rubbish/short notice wish list but I’m only just getting into the Christmas spirit really. In my family, we don’t put our Christmas decorations up until after my sister’s Birthday on the 15th so quite late (unfortunately with my Birthday being Boxing Day, I don’t get a choice on the decor)! But our tree is now up, my Christmas...

It’s weird to think that at this time for the past 2 weeks I was in Uni ‘teaching’. Unfortunately I’m back at home in Cambridgeshire now, so my time as a ‘tutor’ was short lived… (should I just call myself a guest lecturer? I don’t know ha) but the 4 sessions I did help out in were great fun! You might remember that a couple of weeks ago Lisa & I helped the 1st years...

Barrie and Jantze kindly supplied a variety of rubber...

Since January I’ve been part of the Auction 13 team and it’s finally the week of the auction! We’ve got 25 brilliant postcards up for grabs here so go and bid on your favourite now – all of the money raised goes towards my degree show, Show Thirteen. We asked The Caseroom...

So I’ve been a bit quiet recently, mainly because I don’t want to just blog for the sake of it. I haven’t been up to anything super exciting really, but I just did my last day at Accessorize today and then next week I move into my new Uni house so things are going to pick up hopefully. Just can’t wait to get back to Uni really! So I’ve had some ‘time out’. By this...

Yesterday we got all sketchy in class with some old format technology! Old Macs, Typewriters, Cameras, Floppy Disks, Stereos… the list goes on! Armed with lots of pens, pencils and paints we flexed our creative muscles: As an 80’s child (for 6 days) I decided to take the Neon approach for my stereo… Then in groups of 3 we produced a big drawing, starting from the same point but in each of our own different...
