It's a really simple calendar, I just choose the number of posts I want to do and cross them off throughout the day to mark that I've completed the task. Eventually seeing a clean sweep of red X's will keep me going - appeals to my compulsion to list things I guess!
The actual building of a site is a little way off yet though, but I did by this lovely big mag to help me along the way. I need a lot of tutorials to get me started and though this would be a great way to get me going.
I love the Henna style of it and the smoothness of the lines. I'm hoping to get some of the Henna influence into my work in the near future as it's something I've loved for years now. I'd also love to get a design myself from a professional Henna artist or try one myself, but I don't quite know if my hands would be steady enough!
Another great find this week was animator Adam Proctor's Water Lives animation on Vimeo It's absolutely beautiful! A collaboration between Adam, water scientists, a musician and a haiku poet that is designed to show the "rich diversity of life within our precious water sources." I love the style and the music is beautiful too.
It's worth checking out Adam's work over on Behance, and looing out for it in the new BBC/HBO series Hunted that is starting soon. Another favourite piece of mine is "An Underwater Tale" and if you, like me, love shadow puppets then it really is a must see. Short and sweet!
Thought I'd finish off with a sneaky peek at a couple of commissions I've been working on. One for Kristi and one for Karen.
I sat out in the long awaited sun working on these today and hope to get out again tomorrow to do some web designing or maybe some Henna...
