31 MAY 2017 ILLUSTRATIONS


YES I’M PICKING UP FASHION DESIGN AGAIN. THE PORTRAIT IS JUST SOMETHING I SUDDENLY FEEL LIKE DRAWING THIS MORNING. I’M STARTING A NEW THEME THAT’S INSPIRED BY FLOWERS. THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF ROSES AND OTHER LOVELY FLOWERS IN THE GARDEN ALONG THE ROOFTOP ACROSS FROM MY HOME + IT’S AMAZING. THIS IS A SERIOUS RECOMMENDATION THAT IF YOU EVER GO TO GARE DE LYON IN PARIS, GO TO BOULEVARD DIDEROT, TAKE A TURN AT PASSAGE HENNEL, + TAKE THE STAIRS TO THE GARDEN. IT LEADS ALL THE WAY TO BASTILLE + IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I’VE EVER SEEN.

A HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THIS AMAZING BOY! AFTER HOMETOWN, BESIDES BREN, HE’S THE ONE THAT GOES THE FARTHEST IN MUSIC…OF COURSE DAYL WENT DANCING + DID AN AMAZING JOB + HE’S BRILLIANT TOO.

13 MAR 2017 SKETCHES

THERE YOU ARE…OKAY SOME OF THESE ARE STILL REALLY CRAPPY. + YEAH CON’S TOO CUTE I CAN’T DRAW HIM AS CUTE AS HE ACTUALLY IS. + FOR THE FIRST TIME OF MY LIFE I GUESS THAT I KNOW WHAT ‘HATING A PAINTING’ FEELS LIKE…I REALLY, REALLY DON’T LIKE LA GUERRE. SERIOUSLY I DON’T LIKE IT. DON’T KNOW WHY BUT EVERY TIME I SEE IT I FEEL SO UNCOMFORTABLE! OF COURSE I’M AWARE THAT HENRI ROUSSEAU IS GREAT + I KNOW HE’S GOT A REALLY CREATIVE WAY OF SEEING THINGS + EXPRESSING THEM, BUT I JUST DON’T LIKE IT. IT’S NOT EVEN LIKE SOMETIMES I FIND SOME CUBIST WORKS WEIRD. JUST…WHEN YOU TRY TO DO A SKETCH OF A PAINTING BUT IT’S TAKING YOU AGES + YOU STILL DO NOT FINISH IT, YOU KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE IT. IT’S LIKE REMEMBERING LINES [QUOTING ANDREW SCOTT]: IF YOU CAN’T REMEMBER A LINE, IT MEANS YOU DON’T WANNA SAY IT.

10 MAR 2017 SKETCH

GELPEN SKETCH OF A SCREENSHOT FROM BRENDAN MURRAY’S SONG DYING TO TRY!! IT’S THE SONG HE’S BRINGING TO KIEV TO REPRESENT IRELAND IN THIS YEAR’S EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, + IT’S JUST TOO GOOD FOR WORDS! NOT GONNA COMPARE IT WITH SUNLIGHT BECAUSE IT’S NOT EVEN THE SAME SORT OF SONG. BUT SERIOUSLY IF WITH BREN + THIS SONG IRELAND STILL CANNOT GET INTO, SAY, AT LEAST, TOP 10, I AIN’T SURE IF I’M GONNA GIVE UP ON ESC. ANYWAY HERE’S THE MUSIC VIDEO + IT’S REALLY BREATHTAKING TOO. I MEAN IRELAND IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL IT’S UNREAL!

#COYBIG

[WELL YEAH COYBIG IS FOR SOCCOR/RUGBY…BUT WHY NOT ESC TOO]

I’M LITERALLY SITTING IN MY STUDIO IN PARIS + SUPPORTING IRELAND SO HARD. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO OR WHAT SONG FRANCE PRESENTS THIS YEAR! OOPS.


GOT A NEW PROJECT THESE TWO WEEKS FOR ILLUSTRATION CLASS [EVEN THOUGH I’M NOT EVEN DONE WITH THE PREVIOUS ONE YET BUT THAT REALLY TAKES AGES SO I’M DOING THE NEW ONE FIRST]. IT’S ABOUT PICKING A PAINTING + CHANGE IT A BIT, LIKE, IN A FUNNY WAY. I PICKED LOLA DE VALENCE BY MANET. STILL WORKING ON THE STORIES BEHIND THE PAINTING BECAUSE I DON’T REALLY WANNA JUST RANDOMLY CHANGE SOMETHING + MAKE IT FUNNY, LIKE ADDING A MUSTACHE OR WHAT [THAT’S WHAT THEY DO TO MONA LISA]. SO BASICALLY A WEEK PASSED + I’M NOT VERY SURE WHAT I’M GONNA DO TO THE PAINTING YET.

GOING TO MUSÉE D’ORSAY TOMORROW + THEN MEETING MY [HOPEFULLY] FUTURE LANDLORD AT NOON.
