This one is my favourite one so far. I just sat down after working in the restaurant for around 23 hours (with a six hour sleep after 15 of those hours). Just needed to get something on the blank piece of black I had painted. Now to get my hands on some brads and put him together, after cutting him out, of course.
I have had a thought of wanting to make a couple of jointed "animals" for a while... then I bought November and December from wool and water and it was kind of fun cutting them out and putting them together, I thought I might make some of my own.
Listening to "Experimental Jet Set Trash and No Star" by Sonic Youth...
I forgot how much I loved that album when it came out.

For some reason, the Mr Floppy song was the inspiration for this piece originally... I had in my head to make an army of mark wearing monsters, but I stopped at four. I know, I know, I was making my life simpler (perhaps laziness?) I am just getting back into working for myself after doing 10 straight (exhausting) days working in the restaurant. Hurrah for new staff!
In case you forget the song:

Ever since the Salon Livres et Presse Jeunesse... I have been loitering around, (when I have been here), seemingly accumulating more and more work on surfaces, wondering about those comments about odd illustrations not being "my style" even though I did them... You just have to see this image to understand (Not all the images you see in the photo are mine). I think I am understanding my style and getting a grasp of not kidding myself into something I am not. I guess when you work as a graphic designer, you get asked to appropriate styles, so perhaps this is why I got a little lost? I have arrived in the clearing! Does that make sense?
I have actually done a decent amount of work today (my protesting, hoop jumping tiger is my work in progress started today).

I think work is getting to me, I am not sleeping well, and well, that's how it is when you work for someone else who has crazy deadlines I guess. Just so tired, but not sleeping well.
See! repeating myself. Babbling. Fabulous.
more commissioned work

These are two more images done for the 'zine for work (where I have full creative control, I am told). They are remarkably joyous considering what comes out of my brain in my own time. I believe i have just finished the second last, but I am not sure. It's still wet, I'm allowed to be unsure.
Damn my thumping head at the moment. I hate being a girl sometimes.
