{art} thoughts...

{dreaming of} sunday...

At the risk of speaking too soon, things have certainly started to look up this week...

En route to Chaophraya on Monday evening to meet a friend for dinner (the Gaeng Phed Ped Yang was delicious!), I got a call from Lee at Label PR who offered me a work placement starting the very next day! Label specialises in PR for the fashion, beauty and lifestyle industries, and I spent Tuesday morning becoming quickly aquainted with Mac-book and composing creative look-sheets to send to fashion journalists... Needless to say, I was in my element, and Lee and the team were absolutely lovely!

The rest of the week has flown by in a bit of a blur, and while i've thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm very much looking forward to Sunday morning, when I can curl up on the sofa with a mug of tea and the Sunday papers! I finished this drawing a while ago, but it seemed to suit my weekend plans perfectly :)

{ciao ciao}

Long inspired by talented illustrator-bloggers (inslee; dilly dallas; pencilfashion), innovative streetstyle-bloggers (garance dore; the sartorialist; vanessa jackman) and and beautiful fashion-bloggers (theblondesalad; after drk; cherry blossom girl; the glamouri), I've decided to take the plunge and start my very own blog!

A creative at heart, I love to spend my weekends dabbling in drawing and elbow-deep in paint... My source material is spontaneous and varied, from fashion to foliage and fiction, and one of the aims of this blog is to document and explore the development of my artistic interests...

Here goes!
