Bookworms Never Go to Bed Alone.

If you read my blog often or know me you would know i used to study graphic design , but it all went terribly wrong for me and now i just stick to photography but  still love looking at illustration and i stumbled across an image on fffound and reposted some images on SequinRose of some lovely illustrations by Kelly Thompson…

The mixed media and use of colour shows alot of variety in her work and attention to detail is well considered

This one is one of my faves…

The works are drawn on recycled card with coloured pencils, recoloured in Photoshop and then printed as giclées.

Bookworms Never Go to Bed Alone.

Her series of geek girl illustrations are my favourite the spectacles are so cute !

My favourite image ^ !!!

And not only is she an amazing illustrator she had some lovely fashion photography on her website too, anyone that is a keen illustrator should check out her work . Kelly Thompson

The worst day of my life

Well the weekend went fast cant even remember what i did part from one club i went to were Me n Anna got a piggy back home from a stranger called jed and another guy lol, well after loan day i had a hand in for work on Tuesday , but i managed to get an extension due to stress, and being dyslexic only to be told Tuesday morning that for my graphics projects i wernt getting the extension i thought i was my tutor is an ass and told me if i cant do it change my course !!! ( are u dumb years nearly finished !!)

I ve been stressed for weeks my doctor says my BMI is at 16 which is very low and i need to slow down but there is no time to do so !!!

Keep in mind i have 11 projects to do many not even started yet….so me n Mr Propperganda got the work started (luckily it was raining so i loved being inside )
I was quite convinced i would get it done till i realized it was 11 o clock and i only had 3 projects done…..
I was too tired to eat but Mr Propperganda got me the biggest fish and chips which was quite tasty but i couldnt finish it all ….i was struck by a creative block not knowing how to piece something together, i cried , shouted, slammed my mouse down and wanted to be sick !!!
I took my self to the library to print off stuff at 3am after piecing my magazine spread together i saved everything and headed back home at 7am i woke mr Propperganda up who had been sleeping ( lucky him ) and continued to stick and paste…sketchbooks, the work had to be in for 11:30 as well as printed a2 and a3 so i jumped in the shower changed by clothes and printed and mounted the stuff ,

11:30 i handed it in
He looked at me( my tutor)  he said ” oh you made it then ” ( i wanted to kick his face in ) i replied ” what choice did i have” and he just smiled !!!! (aarrararrarahhhhhh you complete asss !!!! i hate you !!)
then at 12 i got told my works being kept for exsternal moderator thingy n i get it back 12may !!!
