( Read an art history essay on the depiction of women in art )
( Saw Peace live @ Heaven )
(Where I met the lovely Ellie)

/ Didn't do much /

There's lots of sun and everything's on the horizon
Write less; write in pictures.
Don't talk,

So Nice

My bedroom is my life// Hockney posters, Matisse shapes on my wall, my bed, all my Morrissey cut outs. It's where I listen to music and do most of my drawing too. The light was so soft and lovely on Saturday afternoon so I took some photos because I've changed it around recently and gradually built up pictures on the walls like it was one of my sketchbooks. I listened to Octopus' Garden in the Shade on record and lay on the floor.

Listening to: Goat, Peace (who I am seeing live again in a week!!), The Clash, Bob Dylan, Thee Oh Sees

Observing: the art of Wyndam Lewis(3), Cristina Troufa (1), Anthony Cuhady(2)

Tracey Emin letter to me on newspaper clipping eek

Raw Milk

Filling a new sketchbook that my gr8 pal gave me for secret santa!!
I went on a holiday trip to the British Museum and drew the Parthenon one day, and watched a great documentary about the Clash which aired on New Years day about 1977 and their doomed generation and London punk it was all v cool //
I have been wandering around doing chores for my family and drawing and thinking about going back to school, listening to The Clash, Parquet Courts, FKA Twigs <33, and early Cure albums. And met Ferris from the Horrors band outside Shepherds in prim hill and he was all in black and weird and mysterious //
I drew the last one on a magic lone walk in Regents Park as the sun set over London n it was great, I listened to some Bob Dylan and forgot it was Christmas Eve //

Lazy Oaf space oddity dress 10/10 despite the fact it rips everytime i wear it lol 

A humorous Stevie Smith poem
Drugs made Pauline vague.
She sat one day at the breakfast table
Fingering in a baffled way
The fronds of the maidenhair plant.

Was it the salt you were looking for dear?
said Dulcie, exchanging a glance with the Brigadier.

Chuff chuff Pauline what's the matter?
Said the Brigadier to his wife
Who did not even notice
What a handsome couple they made. 

have fun going back to school kids n get some sleep

People Are Strange


What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images //
Mad Matisse Garms

Perfect for xmas gifts/school/weekend fun !!! SO PLEASE EMAIL/COMMENT IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED?? 
I'm going to be embroidering tshirts on request too just send me a message

here are some photos show-casing the vague examples of the bags, integrated with fun Matisse-cut-outs and sum gr8 quotes by gr8 artists..

"With colour one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft." -Matisse
"My curves are not crazy" - Matisse

Here, I'm wearing a new one-of-a-kind shirt I bought in Golbourne Rd Market~ it's from a tailor's shop in Thailand that the stall owner bought when it was displayed for stitching examples to customers. It shows all the girls-schools' crests in the area it was bought from and it's super cute ~~
"I wouldn't mind turning into a vermilion goldfish" -Matisse
"Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer and clearer still, until your eyes ache." - Hockney
Matisse blue nudes

The other day I saw Peace and Bombay Bicycle Club live at Earl's Court London and as expected Peace were so so great. It was the 6th time I have seen them, and I never regret it~~ this time, Harrison Koisser sauntered onstage wearing a poncho: it was the most heavenly thing. It reminded me of Vince Noire in The Mighty Boosh, who claims "you can never be unhappy in a poncho" because Harrison's joy was radiating in glorious waves.
They played Gen Strange, the new song from their forthcoming album which was dreamy to hear for the first time live, and everyone screamed "How do you do it?" right back at Harrison~~

Sam Koisser had traded his ordinary black skinny jeans for glittery trousers, as dark as his silky black hair. For the first time ever he had surprisingly found some sort of new MAGICAL stage presence asl well, and it was beautiful. Opening with the classic Lovesick and finishing their supporting set with World Pleasure: And as the resounding base line began to fade out and Doug's bopping head movements subsided, a boy standing next to me (whose face was covered in Peace stickers) and the rest of the crowd cried out for more.
I had a very emotional time in the Tate Britain yesterday when I went to see the Turner Prize exhibition of up-and-coming modern artists. I have nothing against "post-modern" art and some of the artists were v talented and cool but WHERE WERE THE PAINTINGS AND THE SOUL ART it was all fkn film art which didn't 100% constitute as art.
It was super disappointing but then I came out feeling all moody and walked straight into the Hockney/Freud/Moore room and it was like finding a lake after 100days in the desert. It was beautiful and I was so haPPY to see Lucian Freud's Girl With Kitten and Hockney's A Bigger Splash like they were my old friends and all my faith in British art was 100% restored..
