So today I decided that I was getting ignored on Etsy and signed up for a Folksy:
People seem a lot more interested in looking at everyone elses stuff.
It's also all in pounds because it's UK based so it means I don't have to hurt my brain trying to work out $ into £.
Not much on it yet. I don't want to take anything off Etsy but I'm taking a lot of my things to the show THIS THURSDAAY so whatever I don't sell can go online.

I have nothing new to show you or to say really.
Still working on stuff for the show and waiting for my totes from clever baggers.
I just wanted to say that I tried the Seattle Latte cup thing from Starbucks today and it is now my favourite thing ever. The end.
Also I would like to buy these from Lizzy Stewart:

I just went a bit mental.
Basically I wanted a new design to print on bags for the show so I thought I'd try a heart like the one I used for one of my drawing modules.
Thought I'd only use a few scraps of paper but ended up using loads and then digging through that box of scrap paper that many art students have that's full of endless patterned paper you couldn't bare to throw away..
I'm not really sure it would work on a bag.. but it looks quite nice on the paper.. might mount them or something..
My terrible flyer.. but yes come and support us please.
Private view is 6-9pm on the 3rd and I'll be invigilating on the Monday if you can't make the Thursday.
Or just go when I'm not there to see everyone's lovely work.
Me and a few people will probably be selling some stuff so bring your change purses.

Today in the post I got my screen cleaner, fade marker, clamps (though I'm not sure they're the right ones after all the searching) and some retarder.
Thought I'd try and test it today though I might have to just hold the screen down myself somehow..
So far I just drew a quick ..dog..obviously.. and painted over it with drawing fluid. Waiting for it to dry and then I have to spread screen filler over the whole screen with my trusty new squeegee.
I'm a bit scared..wish me luck.

I have been finding drawing blow up doll faces pretty tricky.
I'm pretty pleased with this one, though I am definitely not the greatest at colouring on photoshop.
I didn't want to give the dolls too much detail because then they would just look like really crappily drawn people.
5/7 done now maybe. Thank fook.
Simone suggested I add stuff to the crest and find a latin phrase that would be relevant.
So I did one better and got a friend to translate some sentences for me.
I went with 'Vivat aspidistra' which is 'Long live the aspidistra'. The other one was too long.
