I enjoyed this weeks Illustration Friday topic. It is the perfect summary of my weekend.
I stayed up in Carlisle with my lovely girlfriend whos house is always bloody freezing, it's a big old Georgian thing with sinlge glazed windows, no carpets and the heating is never on.
We spent the whole time under a duvet, shivering and watching films.

Karen Ann Myers has some new paintings up on her website, which are absolutel amazing. I think I love everything about them. The patterns (as always) are incredible, the use of flat colour mixed up with shade. It's all wonderful.
I particularly love how unconfortable some of them make you feel, but you can't quite put your finger on why. It gives me the same sense of uncertainty as Edward Hopper's work does. Which is no bad thing at all.
I discovered her because of this painting (but I can't remember where I found it.) It actually inspired a song I wrote, which is probably the most pretentious thing ever but, meh. Just because I am THAT art school.

I bought a new scanner wot does film and everything last week, which is outrageously exciting. Apparently it's going to save me money getting stuff developed and scanned, but I still managed to spend £12 on three films today.

I still am yet to decide on a story, so I might just make it up as I go along. I'm sure that's how most authors work.

A bit off topic. But here is my lovely new(ish) guitar! I don't feel it's been fully appreciated by anyone since I've had it so I figured that I'd put it out on the internet.
It has been lying around the college art room for years, gathering dust and paint and fingerprints. I was given it as a sort of leaving present from my art teacher. I sanded it all down, re painted it, fitted a new neck and bridge and cleaned up the electrics. So aside from the cracked scratchplate and the earth wire hanging out, it's as good as new.
