cold feet

For one of the projects in college called "Tell me a story" I decided crochet pig mittens out of pink steel wire. The story that project is based on is called "A rumpus in the garden" by Sven Nordqvist, in which a couple of pigs destroy a garden. Which is why I chose to shoot the photographs outdoors. Niamh is the name of the model.

pssssssssssst which one is better?



well the pleasure is mine

Ah yes I am well aware. I have now beat my record in how ridicolously bad quality one can have one their pictures but I forgot my USB-stick on my way to college so could only take photos. It's myself computer animated. I took a close up on my favourite. Everybody has asked me why I dressed myself as a plumber. Cause scuba diver and princess made much more sense.
I made them in Illustrator.

baked house in the garden

Where houses should be, really.
This is made out of madeira cake, icing ( a lot of icing) bourbons, chocolate fingers, smarties, pink wafers and a bit of chocolate and a lot of love.

I spend longer than 10 minutes in the kitchen

And the result is not a pie nor a stew but a house made out of cookies and biscuits.

still life

Acrylics on A3, I'm trying to read Fables - legends in exile but inbetween working, college and sleeping and let's be honest - a bit of wine it's going slow. Although so far so good!

we can do it!

This is just my first idea for my final piece in print, the text we have to do a print for is women in different ages. I'll probably repaint it during the week.

"I've been told with old age comes wisdom but I find with old age comes old age"

I need to do college work. I will do college work. But I found a photo at home that I thought I might turn into a lil painting.
