Backtracking, as promised.

Around October we were working on the brief Cross Pathways Project. I worked with Barney, from Moving Image, and Jamey, from Graphics. Things started off incredibly slowly, though I'm aware that many weren't wildly excited about the brief and we ended up going with something very basic. 

It wasn't the best idea, nor the best presented but we had fun doing it and while it might not have ignited much change within the way we worked, it definitely did on a personal level.

I'm not sure if the sound will work on this, but if it does, it's me that's makes the excited screechy noise towards the end. There was meant to be a balloon filled with ink attached to the frame that would be burst by a pin on the end of the cup. The balloon-bursting bit did work, but we didn't get a chance to film the whole thing in action as it blew over the night before we had to present it and everything went skewiff and ceased to function. It took a lot of time to get that scruffy thing working on it's own. It may have looked awful but that's mostly because we spent a frustrating amount of time getting it to work! We are just three art students after-all...

It was a giggle...often frustrating...unusual, and I was over the moon when it was over and done with!


I've been working on bits and pieces for our current brief, revolving around Stockport's resource centre 'for homeless and disadvantaged people': Wellspring. I'm enjoying the work at the moment, though more on that later when I have bits and bobs scanned in.

I have, however, been getting on with my own sketchbook stuff more crocheting! 

Yaay! I've got so many plans and prospective projects that I'm finding it a little tricky to get enthused about the day-to-day uni work. But I always feel a bit like this at the end of February so it'll pass.

As of tomorrow I'm going to be volunteering/helping out at my high school in the art department on Mondays. I originally understood that I'd just be helping out with lesson preparations, getting stuff out etc, but it seems my old art teacher is going to treat my days there as if I were a trainee teacher...or that's the plan. I don't want to get my hopes up, and I'm more than happy to just do odd jobs helping out! I need all and any experience I can get if I've got any chance of eventually getting onto a PGCE course.

I've been ridiculously excited about tomorrow but the nerves hit me today and I feel quite sick. Bleeh.

So much to blog about...

But for now, here's what  I've been doing to avoid finishing off my presentation...

Quite pleased considering I haven't done much crocheting for a while and it's a first attempt at this. I'm going to add a proper neck tie at the back and a pearly bead in the centre at the front.

Ciao for now!
