Hi :)

Hi *waves nervously*

I was planning on being really active this summer - working a lot, being really active online - but that didn't happen due to my home internet decided to go from tolerably bad to nonexistent!! I am possibly the only person who gets more active and stuff once the education starts ^^;

Other than arguing with my internet, my summer hasn't been all that interesting, trying to keep up the hard work I had been doing in the beginning of the year but with no internet I couldn't really do as much and my health decided to take advantage and also scarper DX but I have been drawing, just at a slower rate annoyingly - but I will make up for that noW! :D :D


- Emergency contacts -

I don't think theO will go down or anything and this will always be the easiest place to get in contact with me, as this place is the only place that my home internet (when it gets it act together work) seems to let me comment and send messages but here are some of my other online homes;

I use the same name for everywhere and that it’s already in the top bit of the world – I thought it could be useful.

Facebook (If you want to get my personal FB – PM me)
Uni blog on wordpress
I have a youtube but I don’t really do much on that for now. My dA is the second easiest place to contact me all year round – because that’s the only other place my internet vaguely lets me go on.

I think that’s all for now, I’ll add more if I join or remember more of them ^^;

I will now proced to start posting things :D

Let’s talk politics :D

Everyones favourite topic XD Well I quite like it – I have a bad habit of watching the news constantly ^^; anyway. . . (I will be talking about the EU referendum in the UK)

I know this seems really out of character, but I have a really strong interest in politics and I’m trying to contain feelings I have this morning. I might delete this later on though.
Current mood is frustrated and disappointed to say the least. (Especially with my home country – seriously)
A part of me wants everything to go well, because I know it’s the poorest that will get worst hit and it’s difficult enough as it is. Another part of me wants everything to go so badly wrong for this country that we have to go grovelling back to the EU or descend into a inferno and carnage out of pure stubbornness (I’m in that sort of a mood where I’m very okay with either) and another final part of me just wants to find a super, massive, large, wet fish to slap people with.

Too much concentration was put on immigration and the like and many of the ugly faces of right wing notions reared their heads. If I’m completely honest the campaigning on both sides was an utter mess, purely one side one thing and the other saying the opposite, not giving any real answer, the actual situation shouldn't be that drastically different and no middle ground >.>;)
The EU is by no means perfect and that there are things that could and should be improved, but leaving it is not the right answer. We’re not as big or as ‘great’ as we once were and the world has changed a lot and it’s not going to be as easy as the leave campaigners make it out to be, because the £300+million we will now have for ourselves isn’t going to cover everything they promised, if that money is going to the NHS, where is the money going to come from to help poorer regions like the north and Wales? And the farmers and the small business subsidies? Because it was the EU that gave us the most amount of help, not the government in Westminster, if they didn’t care then, why on earth are they going to start supporting us now?

This is just the top surface of my feelings and I’m not going to say anymore, in case I say something I might later live to regret.

Also our prime minister has just resigned, I’m not exactly a fan of Dave, but considering our next potential leader is a creepy lizard who wants to ruin the economy or a very large golden retriever who likes saying funny words, oh well, could be worse, could be Trump. . . . I really hope labour win next time >.< Because then at least half of the 4 nations parliaments will match

So yeah, I’m going to draw and keep myself busy now and hopefully feel better :)


I have the whole of my student accommodation house to myself for pretty much two weeks XD This is going to be interesting ^^;

Hi ^^ I little update I guess, I have been very busy recently, not so much with Uni work although that is a part of it, we’re in the middle of our themed project, I’m making like the prologue/intro to a story and it’s going better than the last time I attempted something like this and I’m on top of the work. I, as it turns out, really enjoy making a lot of work for myself ^^; Somebody should really stop me, I’m a danger to myself DX

So first off I went to Lisbon, Portugal the other week with my uni, but with older year groups, I knew no one, and apart from being ill for the first day and a half, I really enjoyed it, it was a really pretty place and enjoyable, tried Octopus and Vegetarian food for the first time and the Vegetarian was definitely more enjoyable. I might post a sketch dump of the stuff I drew there :) Also with Brussels sketch dump from Nov 2014, I think I’ve not mentioned that :/ ^^; Sorry

In early February I was offered the chance to sell some of my work at a book fair with some of the third years, I made two entries for them to pick from so I had a lot of work to do with that and stress and self-doubt, a lot of this :| but they turned out pretty well and I got some ideas out of it too ^^ And some of them even got sold :D I’m not sure how many yet, but one definitely did and maybe even two :D

On top of all this and other things, I think, I don’t really remember anymore I have been working on creating stuff to sell :D Like cards, postcards and stuff, so that I can hopefully sell. I’ve made Christmas, Birthday and general cards and some postcards and I’m working on more. At the moment I’m only selling locally but I want to put stuff on my etsy but I’m not sure if I’m able to, because once I finish for the summer I won’t have much internet access and so couldn’t keep tabs on any orders and so isn’t the best case at the moment ¬_¬

I have some notebook designs ready, but I would like to know, if I were to offer up notebooks would you prefer them to be lined or plain?
Here are some mockups I’ve made:

What do you think? I also want to make bookmarks and other things but I’m not sure what to put on them and stuff, but I’ll work something out :) Have you any ideas of what I could put on them?
I was planning on having a relaxing Easter break, slowly working on things and such but a large spanner was thrown into the works and now I have more work! YAY!
I have a small potted plant now . . . yeah . . I’ve had this strange urge to get one, so I got one, from Lisbon, I saw the one I wanted and it was only a few pounds and I took the chance :D Made it safely all the way back and is currently still alive, which is always good :)
Health wise, still really not that much better, but I’m able to do work and stuff, so I’m just ignoring it now XP

I really hope all is well with you guys :D
