Thursday, August 23
Two days at home, yeah! So now I can read, write and draw for two whole days. It's a kinda party. I've got milk, cookies, vegies, fruit and yasmine/mint green tea. And lots of projects to finish, and to start.
I'm buzy right now (this blog post is a little time-out from the illustration I'm making) with Ghost Girl, part 1, the head of the girl. It takes a lot of work. But it's worth it, cause she's allready beginning to show some colors.
Here's a closer look at Ghost Girl, don't mind the colors just yet, they will change and change again and again.
It's always nice to have some transparent layers as a background filling for the upper detailed layers.
And here's a great vid from Animal Collective, Peacebone.
I luuuuuuuv this video. It makes me wanna go all soft and fluffy.
And now for the goodies I've hunted in the forest today..
Part Un: DVD classics:
I've found two DVD's, two of my favorites by the way:
The Philadelphia Story by George Cukor
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, ella... ey, ey ey!
Part Deux : Two great comics:
The Sorcerors Wife, by Charyn-Boucq, realy good European comic
The New Heaven by Mark Hendriks, also European comic-style novel
Part Trois: Les Livres:
And I've found this big book all about Folk and crafts:
The Big Folk Embroidery Book by Mary Gostelow
On this page you see a great embroidered skirt and a nice green hoodie. I love this look. And the book is from the seventies. Great pictures and colors.
The green hoodie with the black embroidered skirt.. great look!
Then, I've found these two treasures:
Bernice Bobs her hair, and other short stories by Scott Fitzgerald
One of my favorite authors is Margaret Drabble. I've almost read everything she wrote. She's a master in writing about simple things and making them sound amazing.
Margaret Drabble, The Waterfall
Now, back to my illustration, because I so want to relax with my new goodies in my bedroom. With that cup of tea next to me. And oh ja, lots of cookies.
