Brand new chair!

Check out my fab brand new mini-studio chair! Good height for my desk which is a tad higher than a lot of original desks. Really good for sitting on for hours and will prevent back problems. Really comfortable too!

Fascinating Art!

I found this really interesting webpage, including this Leaf Cut Art by Lorenzo DurĂ¡n. It looks as though it may have been lazer cut. The designs are very unique and have been done very carefully. Enjoy :)

Claire Cole

Claire Cole is a very inspiring designer! I am very fond of her work and have used her in my research in previous projects several times. Her main objective is designing embroidered wallpapers. The beautiful stitching within her designs bring out the uniqueness of her work.




She has also done commission work for several large companies as well. Her very first wallpaper display was for Liberty in London.

A great deal from amazon

As you can see, I have been busy giving my blog a make over. I think it looks much better than what it was like before, but it's still nice and simple. I will most likely change it again in time. As I was so busy yesterday rearranging and designing my blog I didn't get the time to write up a new post.

I brought a book online from amazon for a really good price and free delivery. I use to borrow this book from the University library when I was there. It's really interesting as it shows so many different ways of drawing.

Inspirational Board

I have just managed to complete my board I have above my desk with inspirational quotes and design ideas which will hopefully encourage some design work in my home studio :) What do you think?

New Home Studio!

As promised I am finally sharing some photographs of my new home studio which is in fact my bedroom as well. It has taken some time due to my Dad only being able to put it altogether during evenings due to him working full time. I'm very pleased with the final results and it's actually much better than I had hoped! I now need to get some inspiration and motivation! This afternoon I'm planning to find anything I find inspirational to place on my board! I will post a photograph when I feel it's completed, so watch this space :)

 Shelves moved higher and they are used specifically for my CDs, DVDs and fiction books. 
 My wardrobes are where my bed use to be. The single wardrobe contains a lot of art materials whilst my double wardrobe is for clothes etc. I then have a cupboard, draws and some shelves for other things.
 This is my little home studio!
There are shelves for books, dyes, inks, paints you name it! I'm very organised and each media has it's own space, just so I know where everything is!
