SK8ER

phil took photos for his art project. i was really tired and grumpy (going to bed @ 5am is bad for me) and started getting really annoyed at him picking outfits for me and telling me what to wear, so   i put on what i wanted to wear. and then phil added the hat and fake nose ring, we threw in the skateboard and i basically looked like a boy which was cool

AMBITION

i want to be in a rock band. i've wanted this since i was approximately 11 years old. i'm getting older and older and older and i still haven't managed it

it's my one dream in life and it's pretty unobtainable but if anyone in the greater manchester area ever needs an extra dogsbody for their band i'm VERY KEEN, can play bass/guitar (both appallingly), piano/synth/keyboards, can sing and write reasonably well i mean i can be anything you want me to be

(note: will not, however, dress sluttishly and look angsty a la taylor momsen. would rather be joan jett, kim gordon or similar)

KIRSTY COHEN

deserves an entire post dedicated to her paintings. i wish i had a big, sparsely furnished room to hang one of these paintings in. they are so beautiful. looking at them makes me feel something. that's what art is about.


























ART

so i somehow need to combine hasegawa tohaku's 16th century japanese art with douglas matheson OR kirsty cohen. i really, really love kirsty cohen's work, it's so beautiful and emotive and wow i think it's totally amazing

here's some of hasegawa tohaku's work - i'm struggling to believe it's really from 500 years ago:









BRAEMAR


















i stayed in braemar syha with my family for 3 days, it was lovely. i took this by the side of loch muick - the melted snow turned what's normally a small river into a mass of cascading water. i took a lot of photos for my LAST EVER art project - "responding to the landscape". i want to combine the style of japanese landscape art with a very typically scottish style of modern art - brightly coloured landscapes in oil or acrylic. not sure how well they'll mix but i'll give it a crack.

JAZZY PANTS




















i bought some awesome trousers from cow for a fiver
they were in the sale and i don't know why no-one else wanted them

i mean, first and foremost, they're awesome as fuck, and secondly, according to asos it's all about bright prints this spring. so i'm on trend, apparently.

FRESHLY SHAVEN

i shaved my head last night. shaving your own head is SO MUCH FUN and everyone ought to do it at some point. i do it every week or so, it grows super fast. it's a number 2 at the moment and it feels ah-mazing!
