Daily Drawing?

Seeing I'm at Art School this year, and endeavoring to push myself into being more creative and drawing more frequently, I've been thinking about doing a daily drawing and posting them on my blog.

Sounds like a good idea?

Cos I know I love it when Liz and Gi at the friendly teacake post theirs, as well as Lauren Nassef's drawings, and Chris Piascik's typographic treats are wondrous to receive in my reader too.

So do you reckon I ought to? Yeah? I think I'll stick to doing the drawings more often if I know someone out there is interested in seeing them.

But no pressure.

My flat is awesome

The other night our flat decided to have an evening of drinking. We drank gin and rum and absinthe (hoorah for Samdrub!), played drinking games and singstar, and then fancied ourselves up to head to town. The result is the above photo.

We walked to town through the gardens and this happened:
The result of this was a lost wallet and cellphone in the middle of the botanical gardens in the pitch black. Nice work. Luckily, my wonderful man (pictured below) was able to find the missing items which allowed us to continue on to town:
Good work Champ! In town, cigarettes were smoked, dances were danced, and burgers were eaten. I think we ought to do this more often.

Knives at Noon

Knives At Noon
Tim Couch, Radio1 Friday drive host extraordinaire, and drummer for local lads Knives at Noon got me to take some photos for them a wee while back and I realised today I never popped them on here! If you're interested, you can see them here, otherwise just enjoy the family photo nostalgia in this post.

Haunted Love Tour Poster

Haunted Love
This was about the only other thing I did during the holidays of much consequence. I finished it up about two minutes ago (there were some date changes that needed made due to double bookings) and now that everything's all A-OK, I thought I'd share it with you guys.

It's nice putting hand-drawn elements into posters, and having them feel quite sparse, letting the main image draw you in rather than bucketloads of text. Huzzah! Here's hoping the Haunted Lovelies get me to do more things for them in future, also hoping you go check them out if you haven't heard them before. Their new EP, Darkness in Diamond City is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, just like their darling faces. It's boppy and sweet and dark and harmonious and rocking and so bloody good.
