I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for ages, they are paintings by Dana Schutz at The Hepworth Wakefield. They are really fun, funny, colourful, nuts, surreal and a little bit rude. The flasher at the top is my favourite. You can find a nice little interview with Dana on youtube if you’re interested in finding out more.
I’ve been Googling bloodshot eyes for a drawing project (soon to be revealed) and I remembered Rachel’s eye-touching phobia in Friends. Check out this clip for a little laugh- we can call it ‘research’.

Hi! I haven’t updated here for a while and am pleased to report it’s 2014! Happy NY to you. Over the Christmas holidays I visited the Paul Smith exhibition at the Design Museum, which I can highly recommend; I had a sneaking suspicion that Mr Smith is a super cool, easy going type of chap and his show reflects this. I was interested to discover that Paul got his love of photography from his Dad, who founded the Beeston camera club in Nottingham (where I studied). There is a real sense of positivity throughout the show, and the PS message seems to be that with hard work and creativity you can go very far indeed- Paul is self taught and his first shop was definitely not big enough for cat-swinging, and look at him now! He’s a fashion giant, baby. Also, there is a mirrored room offering plentiful selfie opportunities (see above). I could say much more about this exhibition, however I don’t want to spoil all the surprises- just go and see it, fire up your inspiration and feel all jolly and creative. Then have some dreams about beautiful tailoring and natty stripes. Go! Now! Go…
