Hello 2010!

Here's to a great 2010!!!

Highlights of 2009
Going to Poland (open'er festival, LOTP, pendulum+prodigy!), Sweden (swedish guys and gals and meatballs!), then to Japan (Tokyo and Osaka) and Hong Kong!!!

Hopefully 2010 will be much better. I graduate and will do whatever i want to do and get a cool job, hopefully move somewhere cool !!

Oh and i still have a list of films i need to watch.
Savage Grace, only cause i like Julianne Moore and Rosemarys baby and some other classics!


Here is a list of things im obsessed with. I can't remember if i ever posted about an idea for one animation i want to make based on a list of my obsessions, well i am in the process of compiling this list right now:

1.The smell of aftershave, just when they walk away and you catch a whiff of the aftershave in the air for a few secs. Maybe it's just me?
2.Pretty, strange faces, this always ends up as hours of staring at models in magazines.
3.Strange things, that are attractive.
4.Rainbows, colour splashes, neon.
5. Light magic.
6.movement, wonderful dance.
7. Old guys dancing.
8. 'tashes and beards, any extreme facial hair.
9.tattoos especially full sleeves. Pshh i don't actually have any, but whenever i see guys or gals with them my heart beats.
10.nice hair, This can be colour or style or just big hair
11. Daftpunk.
14.bandage, tight dresses and underwear as outerwear. Pshhh i agree with underwear as outerwear but i don't quite have the body to do this.
16.pretty paper.
17.watercolour fashion illustrations.
18. vintage prom dresses

Paper paper

I saw this on a blog just a while ago.

'My Paper Mind' by Javen Ivey: an animation technique called stratastencil based on an early method know as strata-cut which was pioneered by Oskar Fischinger in the 1920s and later on in the 1990s used by David Daniels to create 'Buzz Box'. You can see Javen Ivery's process here

I might try this technique out, more fun than rotoscoping i reckon! If i used lots of different coloured paper, might make it a bit psychedelic.

I stumbled across this, a bit too scary and gory for my liking but cool idea.

Might be time i used all my children books i've collected from charity shops and cut them up and make a collage type animation. Maybe time to do more work for 2010!!!

Knight in shining armour

Kris Knight is a Canadian painter. See below. His work has often been described as attractive as they are disturbing dealing with a/sexuality. This can be seen throughout his paintings, from the young boys to the young lady, there is something lurking behind the faces, almost using the beauty to conceal a secret, the subjects are all pale and somehow reminds me of vampires, thirsting for blood, but then this is just my idea of it. The young man with the blond hair can almost be swedish, or is he? Infact the blond one can almost pass as a girl??

"The creative focus of Knight’s work involves the construction of imaginary and biographical character-based portraits, that attempt to find a balance between the dichotomies of pretty and menace, myth and reality, sanctuary and susceptibility. His classical meets illustrative paintings allude to various expressions of duality, often dealing with opposing notions of hiding and fronting, defense and vulnerability, innocence and the erotic. "

There is more than what meets the eye.

As with everyone, im sure the sale will bring many wonderful things to people. As for me i went into work, yes on boxing day missing out on big offers, my mum went to Harvey Nichols and everything was cleared off the shelves!

As for me i actually did the sale early on a few days ago and managed to bag myself a few suprises!!!

These shorts are actually so funny reminds me of my early teens in bright pink cycling shorts, why oh why. Great for working out in I reckon and short bike rides.

Tights tights tights, what more can i say? I wanted a pink pair so the stripey pair was perfect as for the Emma Cook shoes, i so wanted a pair ages ago now its on sale its only fair i buy two to make up for the price before right?

To top it all of would be amazing to have this also!!!

Ive been wanting these coloured chart ones forever nowwww, I really definitely, most likely will buy the purple one, but then i was thinking i want the pink, blue and black one!!!!!! Gawdddd which one, and why do people always look at me like im crazy like i went into urban outfitters once and asked if they had it in, then they looked confused like as if i made up the name house of holland or something, and gently guided me out of the shop!!! Not happy.

UPDATES!! Ive been thinking of buying the jeremy scott x Adidas multicoloured skirt!! I really wanted the phone one ages ago but cause im not rich and it was all sold out, it was for the best. Hmmmm

It's White Magic Baby!

Woop Xmas soon, can i feel it?!!!

Yep this one is a white Christmas!

In the meantime sorry for the lack of posts (interesting), but i had to post this, and coincidentally i have actually seen the work before 2007 Sheperds Bush Empire, London. PATRICK WOLF's Finale show!!!

This is Fred Butler, which made me think of Fred perry for some reason? Maybe it's the name Fred? Blonde moment.

London based designer already building up a steady portfolio, having worked for big names and mags such as Vogue, ID, Dazed and confused etc. Butler makes wild eye pop-ing props for fashion shoots and window displays having already been commissioned by Kokon to Zai and Selfridges, Butler was made to rule.

With my constant fascination for the weird and wonderful, it is not surprising why Butlers designs are the most sought after. One thing for sure Butler can sure throw some shapes.

<3 <3 Origami shapes and colours!!!

Patrick wolf finale show, London 2007, so funny when everyone grabbed his shirt, i got a small bit of his shirt!! But look closer, see the paper props?! Fred Butler!

I don't know what's happening to me. I'm having the weirdest dreams ever, in fact weird cannot even describe what my dreams are. Last night or this morning i woke up after having the worse dream in my life!!

I dreamt that someone died, not someone i know or close to. Then my sister cut up her body and took her organs and put in all into a long cardboard box. I was carrying this long box all the way through, trying to hide it so people couldn't see what was inside, and i can remember my sister dropping the brain in the box as well, it was horrible. We were meant to go to someplace im not sure where, But like a big building a bit like university or the hospital with the box i can't remember why. It was raining really bad and the box was getting weaker, i had to use all my body to support it and to make sure noone saw what was inside. I remember all the liquid fluid dripping out of the box leaking onto me but i still had to hold the box and as the box leaked out more fluid onto me the box started getting smaller almost disappearing. The floor was muddy we were walking along a narrow path almost like a labyrinth in the countryside. I think people got suspicious and said they saw us walking down the path with the box. Then somehow it moved onto a different scenery I was no longer holding the box, but i was at the bus stop or somewhere outside waiting, and then i saw a man and somewhere else, i knew they were close to the person in the box and i felt so bad.

My dreams kept on skipping then there was a scene when i was with someone else wearing a kimono half undone running across a shopping center then i went inside a shop and just sat down with people looking at me.

This moved onto something else, not sure what order it was in. I was in a house and i really wanted to find my crime reference number and i got a friend to ring up the police, but when she did they said they're send a letter with it and told me to read it briefly and important not to read the back of it or something, and then i got the letter through the post my dad had it and read it for me and said i had lymph cancer, pretty random right?? I woke up and it all felt so weird, then as i walked out of the house i saw a police car parked near my house and a letter through the post with my crime reference number from victim support and as i was going to the bus stop everything felt really weird, i saw a funeral car on the way to the bus stop. And as i came back from town i ended up carrying lots of boxes with me free from H&M.

DOn't know if these have any meaning at all? Im kind off scared now, paranoid to say the least my mum rang me and said she saw on news similar to what i described two guys from Poland, wanted for raping a girl and beating her. Sounds really horrible!!!

I think i may need to speak to someone, I'm still kind of scared.

Be Inspired

I am brimming with lots and lots of ideas lately. First i want to test out different techniques with shots and effects. I am really one for creating effects!! I also came upon photographer Jacob Sutton and his latest collection of work titled "Bermuda Triangle". I know nothing about the meaning of this until i wikied it, yes i use wikipedia!! Sounds like a mysterious place. His photos shows models running through walls drowned in water, but one thing that really appeals to me is the way he uses different materials to help him achieve the last results. Like milk and water to create the image above. WHo would have thought of that, well i should have but i don't think much, and polystyrene and flour!!!
