I’ve been selected from this years’ graduates to be part of Craft Fest at Castle Ward this weekend. You can find details by clicking on the link above!

Since my portfolio is alittle meh and my site is still under construction, I thought I’d make a Flickr to house my stuff. I’ll hopefully have some new stuff up there soon!
The toilets in the MACRO gallery in Rome were probably the coolest toilets I’ve ever been to and are a piece of art in their own right! All the doors were mirrored and when the water came on the sink turned red. SO DAMN COOL! If you get the chance to go to Rome, I highly recommend you make the trip to the MACRO, it’s part of the Roma Pass so you can get in for free or a reduced price.
This is one for the designers and artists who follow me ;) If you need any business cards or postcards, moo.com is pretty much one of the best there is! Their ‘Printfinity’ option is great because you can choose up to 50 different images for your order and not get charged extra, it meant I was able to have business cards with each of my different illustrations and photos, I had about 20 all together. It is slightly pricier than some other sites but its seriously worth the money AAANNNDD (here comes the point of the post) if you click that link you get 10% off your first order and I get some lovely moo points to spend on the site :)
Now that that shameless plug is over, I’m gona go for a shower
because I feel like a dirty whore
I’d came across these online before but I got alittle excited when I seen them dotted around Rome last week. Rome has some awesome graffiti, not something I was expecting to see but it was great none the less :)
For those that didn’t know, I was in Rome last week so prepare for some photo spam, hehe.
Aw thanks very much, this really made my day :) And I’m glad at least one of my cards went to a good home, heh.
Awesome sculptures made from broken Skateboards!
People are so damn creative sometimes. Beware, I might actually do this :P
This is what I managed to make in the final hours of my degree. I had always intended on making some cushions but my tutor pushed me to something slightly different and more fitting for the kind of bench I was using. And I’m so glad it did, it turned out way better that I could’ve imagined! Credit goes to our technicians Wilma Heather for helping me out while I frantically sewed like I was possessed. I didn’t think it could be done in less than 9 hours but there you have it, heh.
Harriet Maxwell got skillz!
