Design is easy.....?
Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.
Getting there. Managed to get some other shots too while wandering betweeen the Art School and the DCA exhibition space, before my weekly commute to Dundee comes to an end.
My friend from uni on the fourth plinth at 6am today. He made a scale model of the plinth and a model of himself and created a stop motion animation of it all while up there. Looked like great fun! click here to see
Edit: Stop motion animation here
Went to my friend's interim Masters show at my old art school last night. He'd painted an old guy that sits outside the church on Aberdeen's Union St, generally inebriated. However, in the painting he had turned him into a 'bacchus' type character. I thought he'd captured the guy's eyes exceptionally well. Full of life and experiences from a distant, possibly happier, time.
Forgot how beautiful the surrounding campus is for our Art School too - pity the building isn't quite up to scratch.
Yum, came back from uni to find my parents had dropped off some home grown beetroot and home-made plum jam. Cool!

...again, alongside final uni work - when I know I am missing an excellent 20's themed garden party at a colleagues, (who lives in the turret of a Castle no less), with cucumber sandwiches and pimms and croquet on the lawn, with a gramaphone playing in the background, and roasting of marshmallows on the fire pit later.Bugger. :(
Summer break almost over, one week to go until the new term begins. Cheering myself up with the remainder of the holiday shots.......
