After a chat with myself (inside my head) and a chat with Britta Iv decided to make my FMP on A1 boards. One for Sam, Phoebe, Rose and Elaine... each. Sam Phoebe Rose and Elaine are four autistic adults that my sister spends time with at a day care centre in bristol. She told me about them and Iv been exploring their characters through Photography, Type, Screen-printing and Illustration.


To find photos relating to all four people I went through my negatives picking out which images had relevance to their tastes. (like flowers or shoes or cans or car parts(I acctually had to take photos of car parts though coz its not my regular practice to take photos of car parts. car parts bore me. so do driving lessons, but thats another story for another time(sorry rachel if your reading this but they just do)))

I have stuff on Samuel but its in my sketchbook and Im not getting off this chair to use the scanner which is in my mums room. Sorry if Iv bored you.
oh yeah, one more thing...
look what i did to my hair!!

You know its funny, but not as funny as this little guy falling off a boat:
Whoever said Art isnt a real subject CLEARLY hadnt done a Foundation Year in Graphic Design.

"You'll have to write your name on it so she knows its not those cheapie photos you get from wilkos." Thanks Mum.
I especially liked this verse at church:
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Phillipians 4v5-7

Ellie and I are the masters of wasting money on paper!

I also have a plan... I have lots of plans but this is a great plan. Im going to make a tree but I will start it once Ive finished my course.

I love days like this:

And folding bit of paper to make this:

And spending time with this:

....And posing with tulips like this:

"If you have issues surrounding your identity, those issues will not go away if you "make it". They will be there until they are hunted down and identified and dealt with... Success doesn't fix anything. We have the same problems and compulsions and addictions, only now we have more stress and more problems and more pressure. Many people react to and are driven by these deep, unspoken forces. They are strong and dictate huge areas of our lives. And it is possible to be a good Christian and go to church services and sing the right songs and jump through the right hoops and never let Jesus heal your soul"
