Hope you enjoy this procession of rapidly expanding body parts. If you fancy, you could listen to a cool mix my pal made while you look. It's full of cyber synthy brilliance and can be found here. If you have the time and the technology, go ahead and show me your multiplied faces too.

Green Paint & Gemmy

 Here are some recent paintings of mine. All below the purple cat were made yesterday in a quick shape-making frenzy (because, as I'm always eager to remind people, seriousness and concerted effort are only two options in the amazing world that is art). Near the bottom, you'll find my new character, Gemmy. I drew her on a loo roll absent-mindedly (and badly). I gave her a name and instantly I loved her lots.

this cat is painted on tracing paper and it has a cool dreamy/fluid look because of that
I am very fond of tracing paper

this OK person is such a favourite - I think I'm really liking spindly one-stroke arms lately

some shapes


"the sea is her everywhere"

mouse boy

more shapes & squiggles

this is Gemmy, my little girl tomboy character who wears dungarees
she has super curly hair and loves exploring

she likes all sorts of bugs!

Gemmy almost stepping on a snail
oh no!
I hope to give Gemmy lots of fun adventures on paper.

Diary: "me in baggy t-shirt mode"

Here are my diary entries from the past week. As you can see, I was a bit too tired and hot to make much effort on the first page! The first "Weds 26th March" page (today) is probably my favourite page this week, but I like the "baggy t-shirt mode" drawings lots so that's probably a second favourite. I haven't managed to make entries every night because I've been a bit busy, but I'm not putting too much pressure on myself to write them every day. As long as I have some new entries weekly I'm not too fussed.

Fitting Room Focus: Big Yellow Thing

me in a big yellow thing

This week I visited H&M and tried two batches of clothes in two different fitting rooms. Which fitting room is better? There's only one way to find out.

Above you can see my pre-shop attire, complete with large mens tee (a rejected present which I wear for maximum comfort and a dash of sentimentality), Primark plimsolls, and tights I glued triangular gems on in an attempt at exciting DIY. If you ever find me not wearing black and/or grey, the likelihood is that you have entered a different universe.

top - £7.99, skirt - £3.99
On to the very daring and different selections I grabbed in the shop, like this simple grey tee which I definitely don't pretty much own already. Oh dear. The skirt though, is 100% my favourite choice. I'm not sure why I don't already have a skirt of this shape and length because this is great, and the dots are a nice way to change up the lifestyle of constant black clothes. Actually I don't have anything dotty, for all my previous gushing on dots. What's up with that?

Next I found this huge, multi-textured top/jumper (it's sort of both) and felt half HYPER FASHION, half colourful wizard. For the stylish D&D player who also likes sunflowers. When I put on a buoyant orange skirt I felt like too much of a flower cosplayer (not really a fan of orange, actually). Best to play off the striking look of the yellow top with a more understated lower half, I reckon.

big yellow thing - £19.99

skirt - £24.99

my second rack of patterns and teal - I really like this as a "clothes palette"
On my second clothes-grab I picked some slightly more coordinated choices. I'm trying to put a little more thought to this than just "stuff I like" because otherwise I'll end up showing you 37 different slim t-shirts in various shades of grey.

top - £9.99, skirt - £12.99
I feel a bit weird about this whole "super baggy short sleeved/cropped" top thing that seems to be going on. I love a good baggy jumper and all, but I need the foundation of a top that doesn't feel like it could be blown off me in a sudden wind. It's the sleeves more than anything. I need a more fitted sleeve. I can't function without.
dress - £14.99
This dress is really sweet and I feel v. springy in it like I should be holding an ice cream (mint choc chip is my fave and it would kinda match).

leotard - £12.99, skirt - £3.99
This outfit makes me want to join Lucius (I mean, even more than I already do). Patterns are the way to paradise. Quote me on that.
top - £3.99, shorts - £7.99
And finally a cute outfit for running around and eating raspberries in. These shorts! I love shorts!
