Music Monday is back! Been a bit busy recently, see previous post. However, here is an illustration, and this week I'm doing 'Let's Make Love' by CSS. Quite simply this song would be in my top 5 songs ever. I first heard it when I was about 17 and it blew my mind, it's just such a fun song, a real dancing tune. The video is just so cool as well...I wish I was them.

Hello! Long time no blog. Well as you well know (if you have been following my blog) I finally made the big move to London! The first week was mainly spent cleaning and sorting out all my stuff, and then me and my flatmate got ill, so it was all a bit tiring, as moving in usually is. However, during the last few days I got better and managed to go and explore. Exciting!
On Saturday I went to the David Shrigley / Jeremy Deller exhibition at the Hayward gallery. It was AMAZING. You couldn't take photos there, but here are a couple of pics of the stuff that I bought from the shop. Definitely worth a visit, both exhibitions were great and they also worked well seeing them both together in the same venue.
Oh, and on my third day of living in London, I managed to get myself locked out the flat, and ended up bumping into Little Mix and JLS. We're now best mates.
I had an amazing week last week, as I found out that I am going to be both exhibiting and working at Pick Me Up graphic art fair at Somerset House. Words can't express how excited I am, so if you're about please come and see me! I'll probably be in the corner, having an illustration-induced fit.
Finally, I also found out last week that I won Don't Panic's poster competition! Thanks to everyone for putting up with my constant hustling for votes, you are just the BEST. My poster will be distributed throughout the UK in Don't Panic packs, and will also be up for sale in their online poster shop. I might even do a giveaway or something to say ta!

I had to blog about Jane Kim. I found her work through Flickr, and she is a very talented (and elusive, I can barely get any info about her) artist. She works in many different mediums, digital, paint, crayon, plastic, found objects, even obscure screenshots of 90s TV shows. I'd love to get in her mind and see what was going on, her work is such a mish-mash of kitsch and the surreal, all finished off with a nod to the early days of clipart and the internet. Check out her Flickr, it's brilliant.

Vanilla Ice wants to take your mum out to dinner. Filthy bastard.
It's Monday again, and here I am, consistently illustrating song lyrics and stuff. I'm continuing the 90s vibe that I started last week and doing 'Ice Ice Baby' by Vanilla Ice.
I moved my stuff into my new flat yesterday in the snow, which was comical in so many ways. I'm moving in properly at the end of this week, so after I've settled in and made it look like the home of a struggling artist, I'll take some photies.
