Blood, gore, zombies, bleerrghh....

Those with a weak disposition look away now....

Blerrghhh, Its a shame the photos didnt turn out a bit better but as we all know my camera is trashed from being dropped every time I go out on my travels.

I was ever so happy with the way it turned out in the end. Was a bit worried as I would have liked to practice on other people a bit more but it was fine! It looked really gruesome in real life and most importantly the girl I worked on loved it and won the fancy dress competition apparently too!

OK soooo, I have my appointment at birmingham city uni to take my portfolio in tomorrow. Hoping all will go well, I cant see why it wouldnt at this late stage but hey ho we will have to see. Its funny because when I took my portfolio to Falmouth I didnt know what to include and kept trying to beef it up with rubbish whereas now im struggling to cut it down. Oh if I knew then what I know now.

Im not feeling particularly eloquent today so i shall leave it there rather than drivel on about random rubbish like how I finally caught a jelly on Viva Pinata today and..... oops never mind.

Love love xxx

P.S. I feel like learning a new word, please send any suggestions in on a postcard :)

Update for August....

Well my prettys much has been happening in the world of April, The materials arrived that I ordered for the special fx makeup job I was spouting on about last time so I had a practice on my own face and have put a photo on here for your enjoyment. In the final piece her head will be covered with half a bald cap and the blood and gore shall be continued up onto it and down her neck and ear and also on her hand and arm. EXCITING.

I have also been slumming it in hospital which wasnt so fun but im out and well now which is all that matters. I have an interview on wednesday for a foundation course at Birmingham city university which im pretty confident about, I need to put my portfolio together for it which I plan on commencing this afternoon. I have also decided that I need to give myself a bit of a nudge up the backside now if I want to get into Falmouth next year so I am compiling an online portfolio so that I can write to publishers and galleries in and around the west midlands and get them to have a peek at my work as I really would like to have some work published by the time my interview for Falmouth comes around next year. If anyone has any tips on getting work illustrating books and such please let me know as Its time for action now. Similarly if anyone would like any work doing please get in touch, I have a very diverse range of skills that vary from paintings and sculpture to murals and body painting. I will give anything a go so drop me an email and we can go frome there. u_r_my_sunshine@hotmail.co.uk

I shall leave you with some random pieces from my sketchbook and such... xx
