Odd?

08Mar10

I have surprised myself. For the first time in a few months I have picked up my pen and have started drawing again. The past few things on here that I’ve posted have really inspired me.. And it’s just made me want to make something. I am really shy about my work, not a lot of people get to see it. BUT I have promised myself I will finish this, and post it on here.. Even though probably no one will ever see it, but it’s the point that it’s there if people want to :-). One small step and all that shebang! I think I want to scan it in afterwards and play with it on illustrator. I’m guessing thats how the pieces below have been made too, but I really like them so I want to play too! Anyways, I’m off to bed. Goodnight x

So I’ve just come across a blog called notebookdoodles and I absolutely love it! I really like the way she has used type within her doodles and the messages behind each piece. I picked these ones out because I can relate to them. They’re all very true. Or maybe I want to believe they’re true? Maybe it’s not true? I don’t know, but in my opinion if you believe in something that much then you make it true. You make the belief a reality. There are somethings in life I don’t give up on and never give up on. Even if I said that I had, I’d probably still believe deep down. I always hope that people will remember acts of kindness and not take them for granted… Even though a lot of people aren’t grateful for the things you do for them. I’ve met a lot of selfish people in my life and I’m only 20! Life’s too short to have people like that in your life. I don’t know why I needed to rant that. But it feels better now!





A little gem..

Back in first year I did a research brief and blogged it here in 2007. One of the things I had to research was a company called eBoy. They get re-usable pixel objects and take them to build complex and extensible artwork. I love them because they are so detailed but the objects within the image are so simple. There’s just a lot of things to look at. Again, they use bold colours which I like and straight edges. It reminds me of Habbo Hotel. Or does Habbo remind me of eBoy? I don’t know which was around first… Anyway. When I first researched, I realised that one of my favorite bands album art work looked very similar to the work that eBoy was producing. So I looked on their website and there was no sign of it. I’ve just revisited their site after two years and there it is! I like Groove Armada even more now, in fact, I think I might go listen to them!


Yeah man! 😛 xox


Oh my days!

This is the cutest blog I have seen in a long time! Right up my street, I mean, check out this bear!!! I think this could be the best thing I have ever seen. And it kind of reminds me of someone haha..

These are just a few other things i’ve come across whilst I was browsing on the site. They are all really good, I like them because they aren’t perfectly drawn. But in a different sense they are? In my opinion anyway! I also like the bold lines and colours and the cute little faces. I suppose it’s not that surprising that I like them so much!


I have a friend, well I know of someone (he doesn’t really know me that well) that produces work just like this piece below. I wonder if he’s seen them? His work is so similar.


And then finally I just added this last illustration in because it is so CUTE!

So, I was on ffffound.com today and I saw this! I absolutely love it, it’s so easy to do as well. I think I might try this style with a few doodles I’ve done while I was watching the TV the other day. It could work quite well :-). I’m going to go and check out their blog…


Tru dat.
