I'm not dead

24 March 09

Just very busy! I'm quickly approaching scary deadlines for the final year of my degree (two months left OMG) while also trying to sort out my life post-graduation, that kind of thing. I have so many things to blog about, I don't even know where to start!

These are some sketchbook pages from my trip to Russia. Mostly from museums, scribbling down nonsense on the go or on the train/plane.



Hip Hip Hooray! Have missed your beautiful posts! Great sketches here! And how terribly exciting about the impending graduation! :)

Perfect Nick II! So glad you’re back!

I’m not surprised that you’ve been busy if you’re graduating soon! The third year students on my course are going crazy, particularly trying to raise money for the degree show.

I love looking at people’s sketchbooks, probably nearly more than the final pieces. I really like the last two.

That’s exactly it! I’m on the show committee too, so trying to organise that and my own work… argh! x

Hi Kris, I’ve been a longtime reader of yours, from LJ to this site, and I’m glad you’re back! I’ve missed seeing your new and inspiring posts, but it’s been worth the wait! Good luck with your final months! :)

ooh i had no idea you went to Camberwell! i have some friends beginning the illustration course in september. i wanted to do illustration but i don’t think i have the drive to do freelance all the time, what are you planning to do after your degree if you don’t mind me asking? your drawings are amazing so i’m sure you’ll have lots of work.

I can’t believe I’m nearly finished with my degree, where have three years gone?! I really like my course but it’s pretty shambolic at times and you have to fend for yourself really! Which I don’t mind because that’s what it’s like when you leave, but you know, some people moan. Our tutors are great though, I’m sure your pals will dig it here.
How do you like Chelsea? I very nearly went there instead.
After my degree I hope to start working as a freelance illustrator. Aaargh sacry/exciting!

What a lovely surprise to be able to peruse some of your gorgeous drawings this morning! Best of luck wrapping up the degree …

Good luck for graduation! I’m so glad all that is over haha! It’s a pleasure as usual to see all your gorgeous sketches (Flowers in the Attic is so unnerving!) What do you want to do after you graduate?!
