Absinthe Fairy
I finalised the design for my absinthe fairy in Character Animation today. Now to turn her in to Flash...



Knife Tricks
I wasn't feeling too inspired in Character Animation this week so I decided to turn one of my sketchbook drawings in to a digital painting. This painting was inspired by the Hemingway quote "Got t...


Mr Coat Hanger
This week my character development for Advanced 3D has taken a complete u-turn from the siamese twins to a man know as The Unfortunate Mr Coat Hanger. My inspiration comes from Salvador Dali mixed...


Party Like It's 1889
I've decided that I'm going to use an absinthe fairy as the character for my animation. I'm not entirely sure what style of fairy I want yet, so I've been playing around with various sketches. I'l...


Characters Of Coney Island
I've been doing more Coney Island character development over the past week for Advanced 3D. I've been channelling Dame Darcy when thinking up characters and so far my favourites are the conjoined ...


Miss Em
Inspiration struck in Character Animation today when I settled on Absinthe as the theme for my work. I know that I'm going to have a lot of fun doing the research for this class.


Advanced 3D
3D is my least favourite subject in Computer Art but I'm trying to make the most of it this year by theming it on a subject I love - Coney Island. I started my research today and filled my sketchb...


Character Animation
We were back to uni today and we have a new subject called Character Animation. We'll be producing a flash animation at the end of term. A new subject meant it was time for a new sketchbook. I'm n...

Fire Festival
I was inspired by Beltane and the fire festival when I was doing this painting.



Grant phoned me today and asked if I wanted to come and see Babyshambles wit him at the Reading Rooms. We headed along to the gig for half seven, and met up with Grant's friend Amanda. We then had ...


PJ Harvey
I headed through to Glasgow today met up with Ysolda. She took me to a really nice pub where her friend Emerald works. We then went to see PJ Harvey at the Carling Academy. She was so good and loo...



The Nicest Neighbours In The World
Tonight there was a knock at the door but noone was there. We looked down to find a plate of rice crispy cakes left by Elise Hadrysiak & Adam Milroy!


I Love London
We had breakfast at Nick's house and then went for a walk around Camden Market. It was amazing and I wanted to buy everything. We then caught a bus in to Covent Garden and went to Forbidden Planet...


Iain and I drove down to London today to pick up Nick and bring him back to Dundee. The drive took about seven hours and we passed a really surreal crash on the road. A car was completely torn in t...



Go Ask Alice
This morning we woke up to a terrible £90 bill from Telewest. Even though we'd had the broadband installed, the computer had still be using dial-up. I called up and tried to explain we hadn't notic...


Happy Easter everyone. I’ve started knitting myself a scarf. Sometimes I think it would be easier if I was trying to quit smoking or something similar, as that would motivate me to keep my hands bu...


All Stars
Tom and I stayed up really late last night and then when we tried to go to sleep at around 6 a.m, found that we couldn't because the seagulls were so loud outside. We decided to get up instead and...



Dark Room
It was such a lovely sunny day in Dundee today but I spent most of it in the dark room. It was the last day of printing, so everyone was desperately mixing chemicals to get their photos printed in ...


Afterwards we waited outside with Rob so that he could get his album signed, but we could only stay for about 15 minutes, as we wanted to catch Tesco before it shut. We got a text from Greg at 2 a....


Kitty Ville Hat
I've just finished knitting the Kitty Ville Hat from Debbie Stoller's book Stitch 'N Bitch. I used circular needles and it has little ears and pom poms on the end of icords.



Flat Hunting
I didn't sleep so well last night, as I think my cat Ben was having nightmares and snoring really loudly. I wonder what cats dream about?! We left the house at 7 a.m. and headed through to Perth w...

New Year's Eve
We spent New Year's Eve at Louise's house with a bunch of our friends. Louise's Dad had a band play and we drank, danced and watched James Dean Bradfield on Jools Holland.


We headed through to Edinburgh today to try and find a modem for my new PC but luckily Tom had a spare one. Instead we went shopping and I managed to pick up a black ballerina dress, comics and a ...


Chocolate Factory
Tom and I started a chocolate factory in my kitchen today, making chocolates of all varieties to give away as Christmas presents. We used ice cube trays for the moulds, filled them with chocolates,...



Tonight we went to see Radiohead at the SECC. Tom got free tickets from Avalanche Records but we weren't very impressed with the gig, as it sounded too much like listening to the CD. It was still f...
