Oh wells

So the art sale wasn't a huge success.. I didn't sell anything.
But it's all about experience and learning new things and meeting people etc etc.

On the up side I did go and have a look in the space opposite ours and found a fantastic print by graphic designer Becky Ford:

If you can brave the snow and ice it would be lovely to see people.
Bringing a bit fat bag of tote bags and t-shirts as well as some pug greeting cards.

Rediscovered bear bags

I was going through all my bags and t-shirts and found a couple that aren't on either of my shops:

If you would like one please comment below, they are £9 including postage.

Also the art sale my friend Ross Cheam has organised is happening this Sunday in Brick Lane, click here for the Facebook event and for more details.
Come along and say hi please! Might sell my stuff a bit cheaper there seeing as it's Christmas.
Also, thanks to the lovely people who have been ordering from my shops.
It's so nice to finally get some sales!

Draw more.

I haven't been drawing much as my project is all about the screen printing at the moment.
Going to attempt a drawing every day...
Here is a robin. Sorry it's not so clean and crispy, I don't have photoshop on my laptop..

New things from lovely people

Got some lovely new things in the post this weekend.
The stag brooch is from the very helpful and lovely Oh My Clumsy Heart
And the lace collar t-shirt is from the equally helpful and lovely Wallpaper Rose

'Je Ne Regrette Rein..'

Soon I will be leaving my job.
So I thought I'd better squeeze in one more staff discount.
They are so wonderfully ugly. I love them.

Still no work, been screen printing at uni!


I made a Facebook group:

Christmas Discount

Hello there.
So if you are super stuck for little things to buy people for Christmas I have added a discount code to my Etsy store.

Just use the coupon code 'PUGGLE10' at the check out for 10% off.
If you'd rather take a closer look at my stuff then well goodness aren't you lucky that me and a couple of people have an art sale coming up in two weeks.

Think I'll be plugging this every week. Come say hello!

No work and no prints so far due to tube strikes/snow/terrible tutors etc etc

Ridiculous day

As some of you know, I don't live on campus or anywhere near it.
It takes me roughly an hour and a half to get in to Harrow from Raynes Park.
Today I had a dissertation meeting at 10.30, came all the way in, all the way to M block to find a note on my tutors door saying she wasn't in today. THANKS.
Decided it was okay because I had lots of printing to do after my SUPER PRODUCTIVE day of printing negatives, screen wiping and screen washing yesterday.
I'd left everything with the print technician who said he'd expose all 9 of my pages onto all 5 of my screens for today.
Went in and found that someone had left their treated screens on the shelf above mine in the dark room and it had all dripped and taken off the emulsion. So no printing today.

Rant over. Going to print some t-shirts and bags now I'm home and warm.
Also here is the proof that I have been int he print room doing things.. one of five ruined screens!!

Prep prep prep

Starting to put stuff together for an art sale that's happening next month in Brick Lane.
There will be a couple of illustration-student-types selling their hand made/hand sewn/hand drawn things so everyone should come and say helloo:

P.S. Look at my lovely new and super tacky faux fur coat. In loves.

Uh oh Pug

Drawn as a favour for a friend..
Might print some for my shop.. without the 'I Love You' bit..

A Foxy Lady...

I was initially going to draw a couple for this quote but every time I did it looked awful and cheesy.
Having a bit of a drawing block at the moment and it's hurting my brain.

(this looks much better I think..)

This one is another one that would look a lot better in print.. if I ever get to print >:-(

Letter Press

Was just linked to this amazing store:
Letter press looks so satisfying.

They're a bit cartoony.. but less boring... I JUST DON'T KNOW


Just came across this graphic designer on pikaland.
I love love love her prints and will now start trying to decide which one I want to buy :)
Check out her etsy shop here:


I feel like one of the things that let down some of my images is the text.
I find it really difficult to come up with different ways to draw letters.
Simone also told me it wasn't always clear who exactly is talking in some of my images so I thought about giving them a bit more character and playing around with speech bubbles/marks etc. though I haven't gotten too far yet because this one took ages to fill in...

I tried straightening it out with photoshop but I don't know if it looks as nice..
But yeah, not the most adventurous of tests but I'll keep trying, people in my class like Jon Bliss make me feel guilty for not using more interesting typography... Tsch.

Make Shift Zine

For my super quick zine I just used the 'negatives' that I didn't need for printing anymore and a few extra print outs.
I'm not a massive collage person, I find it difficult to plan it - far too messy.
But it was quite fun and I was surprised that it worked as well as it did.
Everyone seems to think it's better than what I've been planning to do but for my final piece I want to make something that I can make tonnes and tonnes of and printing would be perfect.
Might end up customising them and printing everything on different paper to make them all a bit different..

Wednesday sessions

Today we had to make a zine in the space of 4 hours which I was a bit annoyed about seeing as I was already making one for my final piece but it actually turned out quite well.
Will scan pages in later.
Steve and Dave have put together a blog for our class, couldn't actually believe how polished some people's final zines looked. Jealous:

On another note, my lovely friend has started to practice theatrical make up:

Be her follower, it will be nice I promise

Fiddle Sticks

I was told I didn't have enough images and I was very far from being ready to print.
Need to illustrate more quotes and make some of the other images more relevant.

Love November

I feel I should start drawing things for the sake of drawing more.
Excuse the dark photo, it was too big for my tiny scanner.

I am sadly sitting here awaiting 'Animal Madhouse' to start on Channel 4.
It looks like a more up to date and less depressing version of Animal Hospital. EXCITED.

I'm pretty excited for a couple of things this month:
2 days til bonfire night
3 days til Starbucks red cups
9 days til I start my birthday celebrations
10 days til my birthdaaay

That's it, but it's all very exciting...


I'm not a big Rihanna fan but I love Tim Walker and so I loooove her new video inspired by him.

Robot voice

I had lost my voice but it's coming back.
At home listening to the Amelie soundtrack (mmm) and trying to get all the final parts of the zine done..

The close up image was more of a mistake but I quite like it, breaks up the layout pattern, I don't want it to be too repetitive. But I don't know....

Cracked out my mums severely old sewing machine to start my zine mock up.
It looks so much better when it's sewn together, though not quite impressive on cartridge paper.
Can't wait to start printing now, I think I'll have about 10 images in total by the end of it.

Adjustments and that

Trying to make a few final edits and so on before I start printing my negatives.
Decided against the other dog for first image, didn't quite fit really.

Wednesday, 27 October 2010


I think I need to break up my pages and not have portraits on every single one..

I've drawn this using black ink but I'm generally thinking about the image in terms of making sure it's a good template for printing. I did loads of colour tests but then photoshop decided to close so will just upload the favourite one.

Half term = Madness at work.
I made two and a half grand in four hours.
But my feet are poorly now.

NEED TO DO SOME WORK. But I am exhasuted.

I think I will buy these as they will go with my hair.. Oh shoe shop perks..
