I’ve been MIA for a good while. So busy with life. Work / The Thursday Project / more work really.
In other news, The Thursday Project is officially alive. Check us out here, or go crazy and visit our shop on Etsy. Support the cause.
I’ve started going to a Printmaking class at Leeds College of Art, and its wonderful! I’m learning how to actually print properly, and get to use all the amazing inks and printing presses. Yesterday’s class was actually a big disaster. I made a big mess of ink and damp, ripped paper. But here are some of my prints from last week’s class:
On the train to London right now, and feeling very happy about the next few weeks to come.
Listen to Candles, by Daughter. In love.
A few more snippets of the lovely 35mm film I got back the other day. These were taken on New Year’s Day. Such a good day it was too.
Photos taken in Aldeburgh, UK.
So, a good friend of mine, Jake, has made a cracking film from when we went skiing last year in Risoul, and has entered it into a pretty awesome competition. I do look a bit silly in the film, so don’t really want you to watch it, but do go right ahead anyway! And please do vote for Jake! He needs your votes! A plea from me to you ❤ Over and out.
So today I got a film back that I finished a few weeks ago. Little did I know that the first photographs would go back seven months, to when I was still in Nepal. It’s funny, because as soon as I saw those photographs, I remembered the exact moments when I took them. That’s one of the great (and worst) things about 35mm photography. Comparatively, photographs take so much longer to take. A lot more effort goes into them, et voilà, better images all round.
So here are my favourites from the Nepal selection.
When I was working on Wednesday evening, I went to see Jodi Picoult talking. She’s an incredible public speaker, and quite an inspiring person, and even if I don’t like all of her books, she has written some pretty incredible ones too. I think what I like most about her is her ability to make controversial issues so accessible to the general public. That’s important. I have since downloaded The Storyteller, Change of Heart and Lone Wolf to read.
In other news, my Etsy shop got its first international order yesterday, YAY. You’ll get to know all about my little shop on 21 April!
I’ll try and think of something a little more interesting to write about next time.
