Studio 2.26.10 + spring

My darling man is full of brilliant ideas; sometimes they annoy me, but today I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
He managed to move in a table to my studio at the same time as he made the space twice as big!
Clever man...

So now I'm gonna get to work!
Results will be up here as usual.

And spring is moving in to our garden!

Inspirational messy waves

Travels / grooming / working / learning new skills / going back to school / painting / making things / starting a business / scooters / party / selling / being wild & free / getting naked / going back to nature / buying a house / eat / friends ..............

I've got overloads of inspiration at the moment.
Too many things, ideas, dreams, and to-do's that I end up doing nothing.
I try making lists but hide them afterwards.
Nothing gets done.
I get job offers but don't reply because all of the sudden I no longer want them.
I want to do things but am alone in wanting them.
Wasting time is what I hate the most and my biggest fear.
Still it's what I fill my days with these days...

Banksy screening

It's the Banksy movie preview screening....
He held it in a dungeon under a railway arch in Waterloo.
It looks absolutely wicked and I'd do anything (or anyone) to see it in this location!

The red carpet is being prepared.....

The 150-seater auditorium.

The movie is out for the public on the 5th of March.
Info on in which cinemas here.

Perfect job + Perfect tee = Perfect life

You can work as a 'friend'. It's a serious job, I found it here.
You get paid for going out for drinks and picking up men for other women.
(- "What do you do?" - "I'm cupid's assistant.")

Beside the perfect new job, I'm also looking for a perfect new tee with the perfect cool print.
This has proven very hard for some reason...
Will put my luck in this site for the time being.

Up before 9am today.... That's a first in weeks.
Now I just gotta try and decide what to do with all this time!

Gloomy Sunday

I wish I was this wild indian today.
Free of worry.

I'm looking for new work and that can be pretty demoralising...

Studio 2.20.10

A productive day in the studio! Trying new things...
Outside was sunshine good enough to have breakfast in! Think it set me off to a good start.
I also noticed that we have flowers growing in our garden already! wow... spring - hurry up!

All pieces here.

Stinkfish, el Crudo & v3rbo

I want to highlight 3 brilliant street artists....

Stinkfish, el Crudo & v3rbo

Stinkfish - I would love to be waiting for the bus in front of something like this! Magnificent...

El Crudo - Why not?? This is hilarious!

V3rbo - I love 'messy' art like this; things that drip... Like soft and hard at the same time.

Street Art - the ephemeral rebellion

This looks pretty interesting....

I want my skateboard to look like this

I've always wanted to learn how to skate.... ever since I used to watch
my then-boyfriend ride down the hills of California looking so damn cool.

White Tiger Valentine


Today we see the start of the year of the white tiger!

We celebrated this today with a trip down to Chinatown for some savory bread and sushi.
Although the big celebrations take place there only next weekend.

And of course it's Valentine's day as well today.
Not too big on that to be honest...
So we did it SoHo style instead! ;)

Studio 2.13.10

I braved the cold, had the heating on turbo, and spent the evening in the studio.
Results below and on mimisioux.

Have also been looking for work. What a jungle...

Candid Spaces

I prepared myself to head up north today; first to Candid Spaces in Angel.
An art gallery slash coffee shop slash other things...

Above: Coffee shop

1. Studio space for artists / 2. Banquet room / 3. Gallery / 4. Garden

Then I was going to head further up north to Muswell Hill.
They have some of the best second hand shopping in London, best hamburgers ever in O'Neil's(!), as well as the most beautiful view over the city!

Then I realised it was Saturday, so instead I'm still in bed... Studying Egyptian symbolism and zodiacs.
The city is really a true hell-hole on the weekends and I tend to avoid it Sat/Sun as best as I can on those two days. I'll head out north on Monday instead.
