You can't stop birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from making a nest.

You can't stop birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from making a nest.
This is a saying I heard an Amish person say on a T.V. program once.
I think she was talking about lustful thoughts.
I thought it would be a nice phrase to include in the "sins/virtues" part of my FMP.

Had a bit of a blog re-design today. I'm liking it so far.
I'll be re-designing my web site soon too.
I get bored of things easily.
Any who..this is a new piece which I can hopefully fit into my FMP.
I seem to have two style going on and the tutors all prefer the other one,
but i'm gonna try and get away with both for my final outcome book.
This piece is about the roots of fashion.
This type of plait is coming into style again and it reminds me of
native american girls.
Went a bit Katy Perry with the hair colour (I went to see her, it had to be done)

Another Piece for Shine.
The original will be for sale which is a little different to this one.
I sliced my thumb open on glass while trying to put it into a frame so I am
a little bit angry with it right now.
Ooww! :(

At having completely spazzed out at the utter lack of work I got done today
I did this!
It's for "Shine" exhibition which launches this thursday at Sunderland uni!
It's going to be full of artists showcasing and selling their work.
I may exhibit the original of this as opposed to a print.
The event is open to the public, so if anyone is in the area, pop along!
Thursday, April 7, from 6.30pm-9pm in the Design Centre, on the City Campus.
There is a £2 entry fee and welcome drinks.

As a result of my ever changing thoughts on my FMP
I came up with this Klimt inspired illustration,
and I must say I'm rather liking it, so expect more.
Many many more. I've got a book to make of these bad boys!
The emaciated figures I've drawn are to represent, from the seven sins/virtues..
Temperance! However I'm mixing it up, putting a negative slant on a virtue,
Anorexia in this case is the result. The title refers to the decision to either carry on
or stop. One figure looks up distancing herself from the viewer,
while the other looks directly at you, showing a difference in their choices.
ooh deep.
