Home made

I've got a very good mum. She loves me very much and spoils me rotten.
Now I don't think that way, but when last time me and Alex visited my parents, he told me (whilst chomping slice of cake, that MY mummy made specially for ME and for ME ONLY!!!!!!!!!) that I'm well spoiled by my mum and dad.
Anyways, the blog is about a hat. My mum loves knitting and she loves to knit for somebody rather than for herself, so she's always in search for a knitting target. Most of time it used to be me, but nowadays she makes piles of tiny socks and hats. Not because she keeps gnomes in her garden or because her two cats were complaining recently about cold weather. It's cause she has two grandchildren, therefore I feel completely forgotten and abandoned (not really to be honest).
Nevertheless, she found a spare minute for me and asked would I like a hat and if I do - what kind. I do like hats, so I've done a little research what would be nice to wear on my stupid head. I found a really nice one and send a picture to my mum.
She promised to knit it for me. The only thing, she said she'll do the knitting part, but I'll have to do the sewing and decorating bit as she has more knitting orders from her grand-babies waiting.
Oh well. She's very good, my mum.

Ga ga ga!

I was on the internet today (like I am every single day, all day long, like a sad girl...) and I saw the picture of Lady Gaga. Now I'm not a very big fan of her, but she was wearing these huge shoulder pads and it suddenly struck me what she reminded me of:

Few backgrounds from our grad film

Hello, below I've uploaded few drawings that I've done for our film. It was obviously very time-consuming as any art work. It was actually quite frustrating as well to come up with something new and different from what I usually do. It took some experimenting mixing different media - photographs, pencil drawings and photoshop colouring (I have actually scratched my graphic tablet quite badly). For the final result I ended up applying texturing to flat 2D drawings and drawing on top in photoshop.
So here we go:

The end

Our graduation is finally finished and after days spent filling application forms and spending lots of pounds on DVD packaging and posting we are finally getting some results from short film and animation festivals.
So far "Reap What You Sew" has been accepted to:

  • Ellensburg film festival
  • Animation festival in Lithuania - "Tindirindis"
  • Film festival in Tirana, Albania
  • London short film festival
  • Mexico film festival (We are in the Speak Out against domestic violence competition)  

It's nice that.
