June: Selling work, new photo blog + other things

Hello! May seemed to drag on for a while but June has finally arrived which means we're nearly half way through the year. Scary. However I have some exciting news, I will be selling some of my work at the Leeds College of Art end of year show as part of The Art Market! Above is a selection of what I'll have there, I've been working on hand printed cushions, screen prints and a few original drawings. Wish me luck- if you're in the Leeds area have a pop in, the show takes place from June 12th to the 18th and you can find out more details here.
I've started a photo blog made up entirely of my film shots: www.blankbones.tumblr.com. I've always loved playing around with photography so this is just an extension of that little hobby and I guess there's something about film that makes the pictures more sentimental, as in they can't so easily be flicked through and erased like with an iPhone or DSLR. As much as I am thankful for my digital memories it's always nice to hold pictures in my hands and store them in a journal or photo album as a keepsake. This is just for fun, but follow me if you'd like! 
Mrs Atha's in Leeds - that's avocado on toast by the way!
Another thing: I have a job! Right now for summer it's about 14 hours over the weekend but I'm just happy I have another source of income for university. It will be really useful for next year especially if I want a placement somewhere however I'm a little concerned about my well being, what with going to uni 5 days a week and then having barely any free time... I think I can do this though, I'm determined to give it my all!

  3. That's so exciting you are going to sell some of your work! Wish I could be there to buy some of it. :)

    And good for you for being so motivated to work and go to school- it'll be a challenge but I'm sure it'll be so worth it! xx
