Anything for Charity

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

The other weekend when my friend Nina came to visit, we were wandering past Notre Dame when three 20-somethings approached us and asked if we’d like to donate to charity. In return, we were allowed to squish a whipped-cream-covered paper plate into one of their faces. How could we say no?

Mucking Around

Friday, September 14th, 2012

The last few days have been fairly experimental – yesterday I spent a few hours attempting to make flowers out of paper. I eventually gave up when I accepted that my flowers would be better off being used as mulch. I then saw Martha Stewart’s versions and have decided to leave paper flower making to the professionals.

This morning I have been fiddling with Adobe Illustrator and discovering what I can do with it. I am in love with the “Blob Brush” tool – it makes EVERYTHING I draw look cool! I decided to draw a series of BoBos (the hipsters who hang out in my neighbourhood) as they are a source of inspiration for me and will one day feature in my book. Here is my favourite so far.

Hmmm.

I’m not sure what I will do with him but it has been good to get some lines on a page.
