This is hardly amazing news but today at work I got to do these signs that will be put outside where I work at The George Hotel. So if you run by Castle Cary you might see it. The Father's Day side at least as it is soon. This is in no way showing off my artistic talent haha, however I was glad to be doing something artistic at work and I was glad I was appointed to the job :)

This is a over a year old now, but I did it for my reinventing project at college, creating new artwork for music albums. My main inspiration behind this piece was Sarah Larnarch's work for the debut album from Ladyhawke. To be honest I did many other pieces similar to this using water colour, that were better and showed much more detail. Nevertheless this is one I did of my best mate Charlotte that was on my laptop. I really like this style and would love to try it again. SO HOPEFULLY I WILL! (Sarah Larnarch work left and below)

I have to admit, I feel most comfortable naked (ish). I love getting ready and going out, however, it feels more liberating to feel comfortable in your natural state than to feel comfortable about how others see you. It feels how you are meant to be. That, or I am just a slut ;) But really, like anyone, I have had alot of body issues with myself. I always hated my hairyness. And lately I have felt like a weedy little boy. But after taking this pic, I don't hate my body, i like it. And I hope everyone gets to embrace their own bodies. You were born this way... in the words of Lady Gaga :) It has also come to my attention recently that I think I am an old hippy, I love all the simple things in life. And my mane hairstyle has grown on me alot, regardless of wether people hate it or not.

As of late I have been feeling the pressure of meeting peoples expectations. In the last month I have had people question my abilities and life choices. Don't look down on people, it's not cool. Get off your high horses or I will tell you why I am better than you! But I wouldn't like to be such a bitch. And as for smoking, averagely now I smoke 4 a day (minus weekend drinking time), it used to be 10 a day so think twice before you judge or I will light a cig just to burn you with it. Anyway, this week I passed my driving test, which made me realise, I can do what I want, but that is the point, It's my happiness, my time and my will. I am very happy. And I will continue to make choices for MY happiness. The time I take for any change, is my time, wether it be 3 years or 3 months or whatever, thats just me as a person. I am thinking about life changing things, they are definite, but I will do it when the fuck I like yeah? And keep smoking hot in the process ;) [most likely not]. I have a new tattoo (pictured), take a look. Loving the summer shoes too :D I was having a chat with someone I don't know all too well, over a drink, about my feather tattoo and he said he thinks it represents the earth and freedom and says a lot about me as a first impression. I liked that.

Well there isn't a real reason for me to write this blog but I would like to ask for more work please. In the form of drawings. Feel free to ask me. Saying this it may be a bit of a wait as i am working a little more than part time at the moment. More work means a bit more money, kinda. And I have taken the opportunity to buy some much needed clothes. Right, is a jacket i bought from thatindielook.com which sells some very nice vintage jackets. This was actually size medium and 40" chest, so obviously not my size which is a 36" chest. I rarely buy something unless it's all perfect, however, I was simply in love with this jacket and took the chance, hoping it would be a smaller size medium. Turns out it was too big but I am still very happy I got it as I will be taking it to be tailored to be perfect for me. It is actually slightly more greeny blue than in the photo. I have been wanting a jacket like this for a while and I like that it's kinda posh schoolboy/boating style. And just for your amusement above/left is a photo of me being stupid for Simon Green's camera :) I am a twat. See if you notice my new hair cut, it's shaven at the sizes leaving it to look like a mane, bit of a mullet in a way, kinda retro. But I often changed my mind like the speed of wind, it will probably be different soon. Anyway, I have had enough about talking about me. Do hope your lives are smashing. Catch you later fuckers. And I would be very happy if you followed my blog, and very happy to read yours if you have one.

Here are my new tattoos. One is obviously a feather. There is no personal or special reason I have a feather tattooed on me apart from that I think feathers are pretty beautiful and I am really interested in the Native Indian's obsession and meanings of different feathers. To me, feathers represent a free going nature and remind me of Hippies, Indians, head dresses and 70s rock era, all of which I LOVE. The other tattoo i got was near my collarbone and neck, roman numerals of my date of birth. Very pleased with them and they are a good birthday present.

Here is my latest drawing I did on request for a birthday present. It can be nerve racking drawing someone you don't know all too well, but I think it turned out to look like her a fair bit :). The girl I have drawn is called Ella, she is very beautiful and it was a pleasure to draw her. This is another drawing of my usual style. I would love to branch out and try a new style, however this is working nicely at the moment, and who knows how the work develops. Do click on photos to see enlarged.

This is one of my newer drawings. It got me into drawing again since college. I had realized I had drawn women in an erotic/beautiful way many times, but hadn't done this with men, so I thought I would try it out. Pretty pleased with it :) It is pretty big, A2, so it's a good bedroom feature. Quite sexy. The Photo below is pretty bad quality, doesn't show the shading very well. I took some photos of it in two parts below again, I think they are better quality.
For anyone who fancies seeing me a bit naked. Haha. Was really happy with early Xmas present from mum. I seem to be on the move alot, switching from houses, so this bag is ideal and I love it. Thought it was a good opportunity to be a poser at the time :)
