Im very aware that I’ve not been on here for a while… I havent even posted my finished work!
I’ve been incredibly busy with my grad show, getting all my work home from uni an just sorting a few things out. I also just wanted a break from everything, this year has been hectic, so much has been happening. I just wanted a few weeks to myself!
But im back! I’ve been to a few shows that im excited to talk about and i will also be posting my final work shortly :)
Last summer i read the rivers of London series.. But since I’ve been back at uni I’ve really not read anything but research material, i just don’t get time at the moment..
So with just 2 weeks left of uni im making myself a reading list! :) this is it so far, I’ve read a couple of them before but its been a while!
Looking forward to starting them! :)
i found a message my grandad wrote to my nan on the back of a photograph of him in his national service uniform.
its really touched me and i wanted to include it in my work, so i photocopied it 1/4 of the size and put it in a tiny bottle.
a message in a bottle to add to my cabinet.
the message says simply -
"To my dearest May,
with love and best wishes,
Your ever loving George
why dont people send cute hand written messages anymore? it means so much more than a text, it has so much more emotion and its something physical which you can keep forever…
i love this message… i know its only short and simple, but it means so much.
my desk is a total mess right now!
need to clean up a bit i think!!
This came in the post yesterday!
I started reading it today an I’ve almost finished it!
some of the stuff in it is crazy..
Its one of the most open memoirs I’ve read.. She treats it more like a piece of art work rather than an autobiographical, factual book.
