today i went to the botanics and had a really fun but cold time walking around taking pictures, drawings and paintings of things that i found most interesting, the section i loved most was the hot houses and thanks to my parents being members i get in free. i loved the jungle of plants and the creepiness that you felt alone in its vast gulp of plants! I also loved drawing the pigeons as since being a young child i have always gone to the botanics and used to get to feed the pigeons.

Most of the time i draw imaginary things, things that don't make sense, or something that comes from something real but is changed into something imaginary. A lot of my work consists of 'in my world no one can find me' as when i start drawing and listing to piano music i am taken away in my own world of fantasy and thats when all my ideas come. and my inspirations to draw appear. To me writing things that don't make sense or music inspires my mind to illustrate what I'm writing.
About a year and half ago i made a animation for my final project in my Foundation course. It was the highlight of my year and was the thing where i was able to show off my interests not only in creating movies but in writing poems and writing music, i wrote a poem that described the whole animation. The animation didn't have talking because my piano music that i wrote and played and got a accompanied guitar player showed the mood and story of the piece.
Here are a few more stills that i had around the screen of my animation in the exhibition. the girls are what i used for creating it, it was a stop motion animation which consisted of all hand drawn or painted and mono printed work photographed, there was 295 pictures all together to create what was only about a 3 minute piece. that sounds depressing but it was the most exciting thing have ever made and is so rewarding when you get to see the finished result.
