Happy Halloween! Subcrawl and Sugarskulls.

For halloween this year I dressed up as Claire Bennett from Heroes and did the Glasgow Sub crawl with my friends.
 Getting into the spooky theme with sugar skull nails.
 Sugar skull makeup I did on my friend Lesley. Worked out really cool considering I did it just after I'd woken up!

Some more instagram photos.

Random cups of tea and the full moon on Monday night.

My sketchbook with blood splatters which I later stuck pictures on.
Lots of fun! I am spending actual halloween sitting at home infront of the tv.

Life Drawing

If you are an art student at art school or college, you will probably have to do live drawing at one point. It is a great way of improving your drawing skills or sharpening them up a bit if you haven't drawn for a while. It is important, as an artist, to know the anatomy of the human body and draw it right.

trying out comic book style drawing.

Some instagram photos.

It has been really nice in Glasgow the past few days, quite sunny, I went for a walk in Kelvingrove park in Glasgow and took these snaps.

Drawings and gigs

I'm off college for the October break now, so plenty of time to get more drawing and painting done. I got a new phone, so I can now blog on the go, I might give it a try. Lately I've been doing a little drawing, going to cinema, gigs and stuff. I went to see Sound Over Silence and two other bands last Saturday at Pivo Pivo in Glasgow, it was a dress up EP launch night, lots of fun!

I went along to the exhibition at my local art centre on Saturday. It was interesting to see all the fantastic pieces that people had entered. I enjoyed getting different responses from my painting. One woman even said when she looked at it, it made her feel sad, but she liked it... I think some people didn't know what to say about it too. The experience has definitely inspired me to create more art that will shock, or get people thinking 'why has she painted that?'. I was really pleased to find out that someone had put a reserve on my painting, turns out it was the lovely girl who worked at the reception. It is a great feeling knowing that someone actually liked my work so much they bought it.
